Default Protecting Deck from Deck Chair Scrapes

So I built this mahoganny deck, and the Misses decides on Italian-style,
wrought-iron chairs and table, like she's sipping vino rose in the piazza.

Now I'm pondering how best to protect the deck's wood surface from movements
of those metal deck chairs?

Rubber feet? Cork on the feet?

Is there a product which will glue on / wrap around chair legs that works
well?

Thanks in advance,

Guido

ME: Get her a subscription to an Italian home magazine and a bottle of
vino each week. The wrought iron stuff has to go, otherwise, youre going
to start building airplanes in the basement.

My house is 100% tile. I bought plastic furniture movers for everything.
Works great for moving stuff when cleaning. Do not know about outdoors,
These are peel and stick.

Maybe the manufacture has something that can be installed on the feet.

Uuuhhhh?

Really, what am I missing here?! lol Is this mahogany deck
totally under roof? (I guess that would make it a "floor" so
uhhh, nevemind that question).

Does it ever rain in your world, does it ever snow??? Are you
*waxing* the thing??? I'll bet that's a riot for the people
with wet feet walking on it, huh? You realize that *birds*
will fly over it, right? That some slob of a relative or
friend might grind out a cigar butt on it someday, or you might
bounce a big, *greasy* steak off of the grill one of these days
and, what, are you going to stand there and *cry* as you get
a (gasp)stain on that furniture-quality deck??

I'm sorry, yes, I'm a smartass by nature, but I'm being dead
serious. I dunno. I just don't see it. *Mahogany*. ?!

Get aluminum.... wrought iron rusts. Won't solve your scratch problem but
why buy a second problem.

Well, maybe not your style. (Maybe not anyone's style.)

Bolt the furniture in place. If it doesn't move, it won't scratch.

Tell your wife to knit "slippers" for the chair feet.
