Carpin's cantilever chair glides are uniquely designed for tubular metal chairs that feature a curved frame with a sled-type base, similar to the picture shown here.
With cantilever chair glides, the heel of the chair serves as a glide by cradling the round bent tubing, while the plastic toe inserts into the cut end of the tube to provide an equally distributed front-to-back cushioning effect.
Most cantilever chair glides are custom designed by Carpin to application-specific requirements. Most often, the application calls for a replaceable base button that inserts snugly but can be easily removed to provide great versatility for use on all different types of flooring surfaces, similar to the patented Solo Glide.
Cantilever glide bodies and toe inserts are typically constructed from impact resistant nylon that is available in a choice of colors to coordinate with the color of the seat. The replaceable glide base can be made from a variety of suitable materials, including steel, nylon, rubber or felt.
