Felt Slides and Caps for School Chairs from Shiffler Equipment

Felt is known for being a soft and cushiony material; what better way to protect a tile or concrete floor than a felt chair cap! Offering a variety of styles, from stick-on felt glides, felt sled based glides, nylon caps with a felt base, and even felt strips, there is no end to the amount of gliding across floors felt can support. Felt floor protection is a classic go-to and remains as such for chairs, tables, and even larger furniture items such as sofas or cafeteria tables. Felt based glides offer cushion that protect not only your floors but your chair tips, too.

Fortunately, at Shiffler Equipment, we offer an expansive catalog that features diverse solutions for protecting the floors of your school from all sorts of harm. Facilities managers for educational institutions are sure to find the heavy-duty surface protection in the form of felt base glides, leaving one last thing so they can keep all eyes on the front of the class. 

Felt pads are perhaps one of the most economical ways to protect your floors against routine use. Flooring is a significant investment, and it’s important to make sure that it lasts.

The key to effective leg caps with felt base is choosing the right size for each leg of a piece of furniture. Smaller legs may only need a small pad while large, heavy couches require larger pads. The pads should also be thick enough to provide cushioning and grip to the floor.
