Quality is the hallmark of Simonis cloth
Simonis cloth enhances your enjoyment of your game by allowing you to play your best.
Simonis cloth looks, feels and wears differently than any other billiard cloth.
Why Simonis cloth? Simonis is the truest playing cloth. This means that it will provide the best play possible on any table. The balls do not touch the slate or the rubber, they only touch the cloth, therefore the cloth is one of the most functional aspects of the table and of the game.
Simonis offered the first worsted cloth for billiards.
Why worsted cloth? Worsted construction means that there are no short fibers that can release from the cloth to form "pills" or fuzz-balls that have to be removed from the playfield in order to allow the ball to roll straight.
Simonis cloth is incredibly smooth without felt-like fuzziness and Simonis does not wear like nappy woolen cloth which eventually develops tracks or grooves in the cloth, all the while shedding short fibers that constantly need to be removed. With Simonis, ball spin is consistent, and the roll stays straight and true on every shot.
Woolen vs. Worsted = no comparison.
Simonis cloth practices green manufacturing and is considered a low environmental-impact company!
Simonis cloth means perfect accuracy and precision.
Smooth, even threads assure a consistent speed, English and cushion rebound. High wool content worsted thread construction takes ball spin more consistently and helps reduce ball burns. This precise construction provides outstanding accuracy and consistency which is why Simonis has remained the choice for tournament play for generations.
ISO Certification: Iwan Simonis meets the stringent standards of ISO 9001:2000 certification for the production and sale of our billiard cloths, reinforcing our commitment to continually improving the quality of our products. In addition, Simonis conducts regular dynamometric tests to maintain the tolerances of extension, elasticity, thickness and abrasion of our cloth. These tests ensure the consistent quality of Iwan Simonis cloths, a fact you will be able witness on your table.
Simonis cloth is specially woven and sheared specifically so the direction of the ball is not affected by the cloth. Our special manufacturing processes make the difference.
Simonis cloth is smooth and true.
Simonis Cloth starts with very fine combed wool yarn. This long-fiber wool is then tightly-twisted and woven (the worsted wool process) into cloth. Then it is specially sheared perfectly flat and finally finished in a tradition of craftsmanship that our mill in Verviers, Belgium, pioneered and has refined for over three centuries. The result is a beautiful precision cloth that achieves the smoothest, most accurate and most consistent play surface available.
Simonis cloth's tight weave naturally repels liquid spills and stains.
The tight weave prevents penetration of dirt and chalk dust, and the twist of the worsted threads allow the fabric to naturally resist liquid spills and stains, thus greatly increasing the fabric's life as well as making it easy to clean.
