The simple solution for instant glide replacement glide

The patented SMART GLIDE is a one-size-fits-all solution that covers virtually any marquis style school glide to refresh its appearance and floor protection quality without ever having to replace the old worn out glide.


Available in a choice of felt or non-skid rubber base, SMART GLIDE offers an innovative and economical way to reduce floor maintenance requirements. If the glide base ever wears out, only the bottom cap gets replaced. Once installed, there’s no need to ever re-purchase the top half of a SMART GLIDE.

The SMART GLIDE® system installs right over the existing marquis style school glide, allowing you to simply “replace the base”, with fresh a new bottom surface of felt or non-skid rubber.

Replacing an old worn out marquis style school glide can be costly and time consuming, as many older glides become jammed and cannot be easily extracted from the tubular chair leg. If you need to replace glides throughout an entire classroom, lunchroom, or an entire school, hundreds of hours could be spent trying to pry off the old marquis style glides. SMART GLIDE eliminates all of this effort to make chair maintenance a snap.
