TOULET’S TABLES, CHOICE & QUALITY!
Every stage of production respects a specific process, ensured by our technicians and thus guarantees our billiard tables finishing.
The wood’s specie is chosen according to precise criteria, the slate and rubber cushions’ quality is strictly controlled. Our technicians check on the perfect flatness and the accuracy of the assembly when the billiard table is delivered at your home, by their means.
Our billiard tables are totally made in our workshops, in Bondues (near Lille). We are proud of our hand-crafted manufacture. We don’t subcontract in order to optimize the quality and respect the deadlines.
Our billiard tables are totally made in solid wood and feasible in kotibé, walnut, oak, teak or others wood species at your choice. We receive the wood by blocks, which permits to work on the more qualitative and aesthetic lengths. We work on raw wood which ensures every conceivable finishing.
There are two types of body frames: with L-shaped angles or with U-shaped irons. The section of the metallic structures is studied according to the thickness of the slate. The metal is welded to the bow under template, and we stick a 10mm medium. Then we put it under a grinding machine which ensures a perfect flatness. The metallic sections are from 80mm to 120mm, depending on the slate thickness. Then tighteners are added, which constrains the plate and prevent any movement of the bolted slate. The metal doesn’t move with the time, that’s why our billiard tables are warrantied lifetime!
The billiard players look for inertia. Our billiard tables are made slates (one piece: 19mm; three pieces 30mm, 50mm or 60mm depending on dimensions). The material has the best density: 2.7. We usually confuse with marble in spite of its inferior density: 2.2.
Our slates come from Italy and Brazil. They are ground to the 20th of a millimetre and bolted to an iron body frame. The grinding ensures to rectify the slate (to scavenge any impurity). Then the slates are cut, pierced and a machine cuts pockets up for the way of playing.
The rubber used for the cushions is Kleber Michelin-made, brand regulated by the French Federation of Billiard and used during competitions. The cushion’s shape and its density are studied depending on the billiard’s way of playing. There are 3 shapes: L-shaped cushion for the 8Pool billiard, quadrangular cushion for the Carom billiard and the American billiard, and triangular cushion for the renovation of antique billiard tables. Each cushion is checked before the assembly: the quality of the cushion will ensure the bounce of the ball and the good ageing of the rubber.
Jacks of 6cm diameter are put under each leg, which allows to adjust perfectly the billiard table. They are covered with a furniture glide that prevents from scratching the floor when we move it.
In order to have the best roll possible, we work exclusively with competition quality cloth (Simonis cloth). On our American billiard tables, we use Simonis 760, 860 or 920. On our Carom billiard tables, we use Simonis 300. We use Stranchan and Hainsworth cloth for our 8Pool billiard tables, and exclusively Strachan cloth pour the snooker tables.
Our billiard tables are delivered with the accessories pack: 4 cues, 1 brush, 1 cue rack, (1 triangle), 1 chalk box and an Aramith ball set (renowned for its quality).
Sizes of your Choice
Our billiard tables feasible in different dimensions: 190, 210, 220, 240, 260, 280, 310, 380.
The competition’s standards are: 210for the 8Pool, 280 for the American (in France, the dimensions 220, 240, 260 are in the standards too), 280 for the half-game Carom billiard table and 310 for the game Carom, 280 for the snooker.
We know that a billiard table requires a lot of space, that’s why we propose intermediate dimensions so as to suit the narrower spaces.
