About this project
Say hello to DynaPad!
Meet the brandnew DynaPad, the world’s most advanced furniture glide! With DynaPad the next generation of floor-glide-products has arrived - chairs, furniture and many other household objects will slide smoothly and almost silently – protecting your floors and your nerves.
Say goodbye to goosebumps caused by chairs scratching the floor! Shops already offer a variety of furniture glides. However, you won’t profit from any of these products for too long. The slides made of felt, rubber or plastic are quickly pressed flat, they stiffen as the material ages and breaks or just fall off once the glue becomes obsolete. And the whole procedure starts again… New slides are needed, this is annoying, expensive and ecologically harmful.
It’s all about material!
Thinking about those disadvantages, the solution lies at hand: why not use a material with excellent gliding properties - resistant to flattening as well as wearout - and fix it with the best adhesive tape available on the market? It’s that simple, indeed: the superior high-tech material of DynaPad was originally developed for other purposes than slides – similar to Teflon for aerospace until it started to be used for frying pans. DynaPad puts high-tech under your furniture-legs – fixed with superior adhesive tape.
Carefully constructed and designed with passion
DynaPads are produced from Dyneema®, a new fibre that’s stronger than steel, and smooth as silk. DynaPads are a fabric of woven Dyneema®, a high performance fibre made from Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE).
Dyneema® the world’s strongest fibre:
- 15x stronger than steel
- Highly abrasion resistant
- Highly cut resistant
- Extremely durable
DynaPads are nearly indestructible. They slide easily and quietly. They last much longer than any other slides available on the market. They even work with extremely heavy furniture.
Quality from A to Z The production as well as the fibre processing and attachment of the Dyneema adhesive power strip are consolidated under one roof. This allows us to guarantee that our high quality standards are precisely realized and closely monitored throughout the whole process – contributing to a product with outstanding and unique characteristics.
„We have moved around different chairs on diverse surfaces thousands of times. The results were absolutely convincing … the DynaPads are almost completely intact.“
Jay T. – Founder & Head Of Product Development
Dyneema is amazing!
Dyneema’s strong, flexible and durable Dyneema® fibre formats are truly with you when it matters for a wide range of industries or applications.

- Outdoor and sport apparels (The North Face, Adidas, Reebok, Under Armour, FYF)
- Jeans (Levi’s)
and many many more…
Risks and challenges
The beta tests proved the very high level of quality. The high abrasion resistance, the stability of the adhesive and the for months lastig slide characteristics exceeded our expectations. DynaPad is ready for mass production and shipment.
Your pledges will not only buy the tools needed for mass production, but also finance the manufacturing of your DynaPads.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
