One Way Slides
One Way Slides are designed to easily assist in the correct positioning of a person in the back of a chair and to prevent them slipping forward. The sliding surfaces use a combination of low friction and strips of easy sliding one way materials. For the outer fabric select a non slip cover for use on slippery surfaces (essential) or for regular fabric surfaces: select a velvet cover with a light fill for added comfort, but only for use on fabric surfaces where its fibres can grip.
