Finish Guide

Finish Guide

SAM Leisure’s Guide to making the right choice for your venue. Wood Finishes, Formicas and Cloths in a bewildering range of colours and designs to complement or contrast with every conceivable environment.
SAM reserve a special section of the huge factory site to the production of the Vintage and Professional range tables in expertly stained hardwoods. Turned and carved leg styles and fluted, decorated cabinets are hand finished, stained and polished in a wide range of finishes to complement the beauty of real woodgrain and protect the natural elegance from the rigours of play. 
As with all decorative laminates certain products having special decorative effects are intended only for light duty application only. But for our SAM pool Tables we use a high performence laminate that is resistant to every day use. High-quality Formica laminate is among the most versatile of surfacing materials, providing an unbeatable low maintenance, durable and dependable surface that will continue to look good for years. It has potential for a huge variety of applications.
 Atlas cloth. High quality speed cloth with a high nylon content to please the skilled players. Densely woven with thin threads. expertly finished to achieve a low gloss and a great evenness for a fast, competition standard game.
Victoria cloth. Luxurious, but hardwearing wool blend cloth for English pool afficionados in a wide range of colours.
Tables can also be specified with West of England, Hainsworth or Simonis cloths.
