Pirelli Rubber Webbing

  • Many thanks to the people at Henry Link who refer all their customers to us! We are very flattered by this and have done our best to earn this referral and excellent customer feedback.

    Our rubber webbing is a great replacement strapping and 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. Yup, our “stuf”f is made by Pirelli, the Italian dudes / dudettes who make tires and rubber, so you're getting the best stuff

    The rubber surface gives an extremely durable, solid and comfortable foundation with just the right amount of bounce and give.

    If your old rubber webbing width is 1-1/2" to 1-3/4", it's likely shrunk down from two inches, the standard width of rubber webbing and clips.

    • Purchase metal fastener clips in the drop-down menu above
    • Width = 2"
    • Thickness: thicker than 1/16" - actually 1.5/16th's if there's such a number
    • Click the "How to Measure" tab above for details on how to determine how much you need
    • Price is by the running foot: input desired quantity before clicking "add to cart
    • Quantity is shipped in one continuous length (i.e. if "4" is in the quantity box, one piece, four inches long, will be shipped)

    Important note: Item is not returnable

  • 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
    Example: 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
    Example: 18" length needs 9 columns

    3. Multiply the number of rows by the distance
    Example: 7 rows x 14" = 98"

    4. Multiply the number of columns by the distance
    Example: 9 columns x 18" = 162"

    5. Add the rows and columns together
    Example: 98" + 162" = 260"

    6. Divide 260" by 12" to get number of feet
    Example: 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)

    Very important note: we strongly recommend you cut each length only after you've measured the distance the strip of webbing will span. If you pre-cut all the strips at the onset, you risk wasting material if all the spanning distances are not uniform.
