Glider Benches

Updated

Never worry about falling over when you glide on a glider bench. They don't rock, they glide. And because they glide on a smooth, sturdy mechanism, their action is designed not to shift the weight to unhappy areas, forcing the whole deal to topple over. It is the perfect marriage of comfortable movement, and safety. Take a look at this collection to see what we mean.

Buying Guide

Indoors or out, glider benches serve as an excellent way to relax. Outdoors may have more room for you to take advantage of the rocking motion that a glider bench offers, but indoor versions are also available. If you’re purchasing a glider bench for outdoor use, make sure that it’s water-resistant. An indoor bench may be more plush, or offer upholstered cushions for more comfort.

Glider benches are easy to assemble as long as you become familiar with what each piece is called, where they go, and then follow the instructions that come with your bench. The following process to assemble a glider bench is common but may differ depending on the type or brand you have.

Start by assembling the frame or legs of your bench. This involves connecting the cross supports to the legs and securing them, usually with cap-nuts. Next, you attach the back cross support and the seat cross support to the frame.

Once the frame is assembled, you’ll add the upper back section and the seat to the legs. For this, you may need two people to lift and settle pieces into place for securing.
