In addition to custom-made dining room table pads, we produce custom pads for business tables, side tables, end tables, buffets, pianos, coffee tables, and even large pads for long conference tables. Contact us for more details.
Depending on table size, pads are produced in two or more sections. Hidden from view, Quick-Lock™ connectors keep pad sections securely locked together and eliminate sliding.
Protect your table with our custom made table pad top
One of the most important things you can do to preserve the finish of your dining or antique table through many years of use is to protect its surface from everyday hazards. Chemical coatings might help against some spills, but only custom table top padding can provide more complete protection, including protection from scratches and nicks and exposure to excessive heat.
Please read our customer reviews. Repeatedly, they confirm our much-advertised determination to provide the highest quality in protective table padding at affordable prices and to provide the best customer service in the industry. The sheer volume of their laudatory comments reveals that our claims are not just advertising noise. It's more simple than that. It is the truth. We produce only one level of quality: PREMIUM, the absolute best, quality table pads on the market. And we can proudly state, as well, that all of our suppliers are American companies whose materials are produced domestically.
Measuring your table top surface
Accuracy is important. For best results, please measure only the table flat surface (without the bevel) and do so to within 1/16 of an inch.
Table Pad Construction
Our table pads are handcrafted by experienced people whose work is defined as much by their patience as by their skills. Our manufacturing history reaches back to the 1920's, and we have greatly improved our production processes over the years. For a better perspective on manufacturing processes, it is interesting to note that there are only four major manufacturers in the U.S. Most of them use animal glue in their production, which we do not. Some of them manufacture their products with the use of a single core board. Others build in two or three layers. Some – not all – manufacturers import composition materials from China. All make their pads by hand in the final stages of production. There is just no way around it. So worker skill is very important.
We distinguish ourselves from the pack by focusing on the retail customer. By doing so, our focus is on product quality rather than on trying to achieve economies of scale through mass production. Accordingly, we use the best materials available on the market with the aim of providing you with the best product for your hard-earned dollar. Our core board is a 7/16"-thick, light-density, smooth fiberboard. On the surface side, we laminate two of the insulation felt to create 3/16" thick material (the same as that used for roofing shingles and, in the auto industry, for noise reduction) to provide even more heat resistance. The finished pad has a total thickness of 5/8". This composition retains enough flexibility to allow the pads to lay very flat. The surface vinyl material is made in the USA by a New Jersey manufacturer. Their manufacturing process, as is true of ours, is fully compliant with the best environmentally-friendly standards and methods. The aforementioned velour, velvet-like underlining is manufactured by two companies based in Massachusetts.
In order to avoid the rigidness and odor of animal glues, we use only water-based adhesives specially produced for our needs by an Ohio-based manufacturer. The adhesive is very flexible and strong. As indicated, all ingredients meet or exceed the most rigorous environmental-friendly requirements. We ourselves do not want to be exposed to hazardous materials during the production process, and you can remain confident that our products will do the job of protecting your furniture without causing health problems to the users of our products.
We pack our products in a double-wall, cardboard carton with bubble wrapping to minimize the incidence of any damage in transportation. We never use loose-fill Styrofoam.
