  • Attractive, quiet and long-lasting
  • The top portion of the glide comes with a lifetime guarantee
  • If wear occurs, only the bottom cap needs to be replaced

  • Nylon, rubber, felt, steel, and Floor Saver Glide base materials

With the use of a special removal tool, the patented two-piece SOLO GLIDE® system enables you to “replace the base”, instantly changing the glide base to match the flooring surface.

In seconds, SOLO GLIDE allows you to switch between nylon, rubber, felt, steel or the Floor Saver Glide bases, ensuring the ideal glide base to better protect your flooring surface. Precisely matching the glide base material to the flooring surface extends the service life of the floor and increases user comfort by reducing unwanted noise and friction.

For example, with carpeted surfaces, a nylon or steel glide base is typically recommended for your chairs. If the chair gets moved into an area with wood floors, then SOLO GLIDE allows you to instantly "replace the base" to protect the wood surface. With SOLO GLIDE you can continually match the ideal base to the flooring surface and periodically replace glide bases before they become worn as part of a preventative maintenance program.





With building maintenance costs on the rise, you can’t afford to waste time constantly changing floor glides each time furniture gets moved from room to room. More importantly, you need to avoid damaging floor surfaces by using the wrong glide base. So switch to SOLO GLIDE: the only chair glide that instantly adapts to any flooring surface.
