Inexpensive foreign-made felt is not OK. All chair felt is not created equal. Consumers looking to protect their floors in a school or work environment…beware! Many companies want you to believe that felt is felt. That all felt installed on a flooring cap or glide is of the same quality. This is a misconception. Pressed felt that is manufactured primarily outside the U.S. will not last. It is a pressed, inexpensive product that may initially look and work satisfactorily, but will very quickly become worn out and useless. Not only will this felt quickly lose its shape, but it will collect dust, dirt and grime, giving the bottoms of the glides a “sandpaper effect.” This is the exact opposite of why you purchased these protective items for your floors!
Well, don’t fret. We have SuperFelt™ - a proprietary, synthetic product made right here in America. Not only will SuperFelt™ keep its shape for an extended period of time, but it is impervious to almost all liquids and solvents. You can place our SuperFelt™ in a glass of water, leave it overnight and the next day, when removed, the SuperFelt™ will be dry. Not a speck of liquid retention.
Now you can see where we are going… No mold or mildew or other nasty substances will grow on our SuperFelt™. Try that same water test with your pressed felt and you’ll see that it will become a spongey breeding ground for mold and other contaminants. Adding SuperFelt™ to our products is extremely affordable. We have been in the flooring industry for almost 2 decades, and have learned a thing or two about how to help you.
