Upholstery Supplies - Pirelli Rubber Webbing - 2" wide
Sold by the running foot

 

Important note: We have a limited supply of this hard to find webbing, and we do our best to maintain inventory for our customers.

Rubber webbing is a great alternative to springs in many types of furniture, mainly those that have a flat surface (i.e. Henry Link Furniture, Morris chairs, Mission-style chairs, dining chairs, rattan furniture, lounge chairs, etc.) When stretched across the frame and secured with special rubber webbing clips (see below to order), the rubber surface gives an extremely durable, solid foundation that is very comfortable, with just the right amount of bounce and give.

Not all rubber webbing is made of the same quality. Our rubber webbing is made by Pirelli, the same company reknown thoughout the world for their high-quality rubber products: why skimp on the foundation of your furniture when you can have the best?

Often times, when replacing old rubber webbing, it appears that the rubber webbing width is 1.75 - 1.5 inches. That is because the rubber has shrunk. The standard width of new rubber webbing (and that of the clips) is two inches wide.

Rubber Webbing:

  • Made by Pirelli, a world leader of rubber products
  • Made of the highest quality, 100% rubber
  • Width = two inches
  • Thickness: thicker than 1/16" - actually 1.5/16th's if there's such a number
  • Doesn't stretch that much, so be sure to measure true to size (i.e. measure the full length or width that you need, and be sure build in extra lengths so you can pull it taut and have enough to work with when fastening to the clips)
  • To Order What you Need:

    To order the correct quantity, think of rows (width) versus columns (length). For example, let's determine what you'd need if your chair frame was 14" wide x 18" long (this would be a very small chair!). You'll need to interweave the rows and columns together to get a firm, solid seat

      1. Divide the width of the seat by 2" (the width of the webbing) to determine how many rows you need to go across (ex: 14" width needs seven rows)
      2. Divide the length of the seat by 2" (the width of the webbing) to determine how many "columns" you need to go up and down (ex: 18" length needs 9 columns)
      3. Multiply the number of rows by the distance (ex: 7 rows x 14" = 98")
      4. Multiply the number of columns by the distance (ex: 9 columns x 18" = 162")
      5. Add the rows and columns together (ex: 98" + 162" = 260")
      6. Divide 260" by 12" to get number of feet (ex: 260"/12 = 22 feet
      8. Add three extra feet to account for stretching/pulling, etc. (you'll need to grip the webbing to pull and affix to the clip). Better to be safe and order a few extra feet than to order under and be short in the middle of a project!
      10. Total amount needed: 25 running feet (you would cut the individual lengths/straps/strips (14+" and 18+") from the 25 running feet)
