Furniture Glides

 (6 product groups)

Often referred to as lightweight flat feet, glides are used for gliding an object across a surface and are commonly found in use on furniture legs and on the feet of appliances. There are many benefits to using glides such as prolonging the life of applications, to providing protection against surface damage and limiting the amount of noise made when moving objects around. Used mainly to provide a slide and glide movement, glides are easily replaceable and therefore, can be a cost effective solution that couples protection from stress, wear and tear with quick fit designs to ensure the right glide for your application. Our range consists of many different types of glides and whilst each type shares similar attributes to the other, we understand that your specific applications requirements takes consideration and so we stock fitting types such as adhesive glides, push in glides, nail on, screw on and saddle glides. Common industries and applications where you will find Essentra Components glides include; furniture and industrial equipment, and metal fabrication, to name a couple.
