Metal Porch Gliders

For Your Front Porch and More

Metal porch gliders are no less than perfect for those quiet evenings at home. As an outdoor furniture glider, it is the most durable glider that can stand up to harsh weather and still look fantastic!



Porch gliders have a timeless look and great appeal. When you see one, you can't help but want to sit and sway awhile.

Vintage metal gliders conjure up childhood memories and time spent on grandma's porch!

Most metal gliders are either aluminum or wrought iron; both materials offer strength and traditional beauty.

The wrought iron glider construction process is one that has been handed down from one generation to the next. Oftentimes, expert craftsmen use hand tools like anvils and hammers to forge the intricate details into the iron.

Rust-proof aluminum frames are eye-catching and will look like new for years to come. These gliders are easy to clean with mild soap and water.

Styles range from high-back designs to ensure upper body support, to sling backs and even metal glider chairs.

Why a Glider?

When choosing between a glider and a porch swing, you might want to consider the following:
  • Gliders may be a better option for people with strong cases of motion sickness, adults and children with shorter legs, or for anyone who wants a more controlled motion
  • Metal porch gliders are ideal for small spaces. Porch swings require sufficient space both in front and behind whereas a glider's space is more defined. Porch swings are known to cause damage to house siding if pushed too hard.
  • Gliders, like porch swings, can increase both your physical and mental health. Breathe some fresh air, be visually stimulated, get away from the TV, and glide your stress away! Swinging increases circulation.
