Self-adhesive felt pads, also called furniture pads, are available in pre cut shapes, like square, rectangular and round. Besides pre-cut shaped felt the assortment also includes large felt strips that are suitable to stick on larger surfaces or to cut out odd shapes. The self-adhesive backing is of professional quality.
For furniture that is moved around a lot a screw on or nail on felt glide is a more durable solution then self-adhesive felt pads. Due to frequent shoving and the heat that is developed in that process, due to pressure and movement, self-adhesive felt pads can be dislocated from their original position and can even come off in time. This problem doesn’t exist with felt glides, because these glides are screwed or nailed onto the furniture. Felt glides, also called furniture & chair glides, are mainly fitted onto wooden furniture, particularly onto chair feet.
For wire frames or tubular furniture frames different versions of felt padded saddle glides, also called saddle feet, are available. Regarding square/rectangular tube, flat metal strip or metal sheet frames then gliding plates with welded on felt padding apply. Whether it's about school furniture or dining chairs, mass production or design, small or large tube sizes, a solutions often is at hand.
For furniture with vertical or angled furniture feet, like chairs, diverse versions of felt padded inserts and ferrules (chair tips) are available. These fit round, square, rectangular and even flat-oval furniture legs.
Adjustable feet with welded on felt pad are available with tiltable of fixed base. The tilting version is sometimes applied on angled chairlegs as chairglides. The tilting foot is suitable for a maximal angle of 30°. In general adjustable feet with welded on felt are available with M6, M8 and M10 threaded stems.
Felt is an ideal floor glide which is applicable for even and smooth flooring, like parquet, laminate, linoleum, flat tiles, honed or polished stone, vinyl, cork, epoxy screed or PVC* floors. There are only few flooring surfaces where felt isn't suitable. Normally rough floors don't go well together with felt glides, for example carpet, concrete, rough stone, tile floors with large or deep joints, resin bonded floors etc. Felt will wear and degrade fast or simply won't glide. Also earlier mentioned PVC flooring doesn't always tollerate felt and in those situations Teflon glides are preferred.
Felt for furniture is available in different versions, for example pre cut pads, strips, screw or nail on glides, tube inserts or ferrules, saddle glides etc. In conclusion, the choise is wide.
The life span of felt pads depends on the floor surface on which it's used and the intensity of use. But there are a few tips which can positivly influence the lifecycle of felt and flooring.
