TO PROTECT A WORN CHAIR LEG:
TO PREVENT MARKING ON:
TO INCRESE OVERALL GRIP:
When measuring up your object for the installation of Chair Feet, it is important to consider the type you will be looking at. This is because measuring for internal is slightly different to external. Outlined below are the main differences between these measurements, as well as how you can go about getting them.
The Base Diameter is essential for stabilising and supporting the weight of the object. The larger the base, the better the level of stabilisation.
Similar to the measurement for the outside diameter, finding the internal diameter of your tube is done by measuring the distance between the two inner walls (as pictured). This distance is the measurement to be used for the internal diameter.
Once you have both the internal and external measurements of your tube, you can start to work out the wall thickness required for a flush fit.
Once you have your measurements, including wall thickness, you can look to match it up with our sizing provided on site. For internal fitting feet, you can match up your tube outside diameter with the outside diameter of the insert. However, for external fitting feet such as ferrules, you will need to match up for internal diameter rather than outside.
It should be noted, that wall thickness should only really be considered if you are fitting internally, externally fitted feet should slip on no matter the wall thickness (as long as your measurement is correct).
Below, we have separated out the best product types for each surface / flooring type, based mainly on grip related properties. Please note that it can also be down to preference as to your choice of material depending on factors such as noise.
Installation, as you can see from the images below, is a quick and easy process that can be completed quickly by hand. With regards to inserts, these may require hitting with a hammer for a flush, secure fitting to your tube or box section.
Our selection of feet is applicable for all types of chairs, furniture, and appliances. They come in a number of different sizes and styles depending on your requirements. As one of the largest suppliers of Chair & Furniture Feet products in the UK, we have a truly vast range available for all uses.
Chair Inserts are an extremely common choice for school type chairs with tubular legs. They are available in a massive amount of variations and sizes for almost every possible use.
Threaded Feet are another common choice of foot. They are used mainly for heavier furniture / objects where additional height or levelling is required. They are available in many variations suited to different weight ratings, from 100kg all the way up to 10,000kg.
Ferrules are a popular choice as an external fitting option, pushing straight on to the end of your chair or furniture leg. They come in many heavy duty reinforced and grip styles for all.
Saddle Feet are a lesser known form of chair foot. They are used specifically with tubular furniture to add grip and prevent the marking of flooring. As a simple to fit product, these simply clip around the tube to provide additional grip for both hard and soft flooring types.
Glides are essentially feet made to promote loss of grip, enabling quick and easy movement across hard and soft surfaces. They are often used inside consumer industries to increase comfort and reduce noise. Glides are an extremely popular choice.
