To guide you on why we recommend replacing a full set of pads rather than recovering one, two or more, please read ahead.
We recommend replacing rather than recover?
When replacing one worn section of a table you must use the same material, or it will lack the resistance and colour of the original item. As it is difficult to colour match when replacing one section of a tables, you end up with a patch work quilt. It devalues your table which can affect a patient’s perception of your services. Plus, the replaced sections will wear faster due to their inferior quality. Take into consideration if one section of your table has worn then the remaining sections are not far away from wearing themselves. In addition, the foam that came originally with your table has settled and hardened from thousands of clients receiving adjustments. Therefore, when you replace just the covering over old and settled foam this is another reason for its reduced lifespan as the harder foam causes your replaced section to wear much faster.
Styles of Pads to choose from?
We have two styles of pads on offer. One is the traditional Piping which is on most Omni tables. It is a matter of which you prefer when replacing your set of pads.
Colour options to choose from.
We have an amazing range of colours to choose. View the full colour range available HERE
Black is the main colour we supply, in fact 95% of all the tables we sell are in Black. Therefore, black is included in the price of your replacement pads. You can select any of the colours mentioned above but take note that any colour other than black incurs an additional $100 per set of pads, as we air freight your chosen colour from our supplier in Switzerland.

The commercial grade has a rub cycle of 60,000-80,000 and is found in Theatres, Restaurants and most retail settings.
Finally, there is the industrial standard with a Martindale rub cycle more than 120,000. You will find this in Trains, Planes, and high-end consumer uses. This is the grade which is selected for our Omni Table range. The flexing resistance of the Stamskin Top range is 400,000
(The Martindale is a unit for quantifying the abrasion resistance of textiles, especially when used for upholstery. The Martindale method, also known as the Martindale rub test, simulates natural wear of a seat cover, in which the textile sample is rubbed against a standard abrasive surface with a specified force.)
