Silent Socks Original consist of an outer sock of felted wool, combined with an inner support part made of rubber. Silent Socks Original are suitable for smooth floors with no detectable joints or seams, such as linoleum or vinyl flooring and smooth, varnished parquet floors.
These types of flooring are common in many public spaces, such as schools and health facilities, but they’re also frequent in private homes and offices.

Silent Socks® HD
FURNITURE PADS FOR FLOORS WITH JOINTS
Silent Socks HD (Heavy Duty) are equipped with the same fine features as our original model, but are made exclusively for floors with detectable joints or seams, for example; ceramic tiles and stone floors, textured laminate flooring or older varnished parquet.
These types of flooring are common in many public spaces, but also in a lot of private homes.
Unlike Silent Socks Original whose outer shell is made from 95% wool, Silent Socks HD are made of a mixture of synthetic material with a small touch of wool that is adapted to the hard wear of this type of flooring. Silent Socks HD work just as well on smooth floors, like linoleum and vinyl flooring.
Just like your own socks, Silent Socks is a textile product that wears differently on different surfaces. But Silent Socks are also equally gentle to your floors as a pair of regular socks. For you to enjoy your Silent Socks furniture pads as long as possible, choose the right model for your floor.
For smooth linoleum or vinyl flooring, we recommend Silent Socks Original.
For floors with detectable joints or seams, for example; ceramic tiles and stone floors, older parquet or certain laminate flooring, we recommend Silent Socks HD.
For oiled floors, or floors treated with WearMax™, we recommend neither Silent Socks Original nor Silent Socks HD, since this type of surface treatment makes the life span of the furniture pads considerably shorter.
For chairs with “spherical” chair leg endings we recommend neither Silent Socks Original nor Silent Socks HD. The “spherical” shape minimizes the contact surface with the floor, which in turn creates a small point of high pressure inside the Silent Socks. This may shorten the product’s life-span considerably.
How to measure
Silent Socks fits chairs with tubular steel legs, wooden legs and also many square or rectangular legs.

Fitting & Care
EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND CLEAN
Silent Socks furniture pads are easily fitted to the legs of chairs and tables – no tools required. Steel tube legs come with original internal or external plastic caps. Those should not be removed before putting on Silent Socks. Thanks to their internal support, Silent Socks will still be securely fastened.
When Silent Socks gather dust – start by vacuuming them. If they are still dirty, they can be easily washed. Remove Silent Socks as a whole, including the inner rubber part, and wash them in a washing machine using the Wool programme at 30-40 °C. Then, tumble until Silent Socks are dry. Place them somewhere airy and warm for a few hours before refitting.
