Differences Between Billiards, Pool and Snooker Tables

Pool Table Moving and Assembly - 6

The word “billiards” identified both all the collectivity of “cue sports” (played with a table, balls and a cue) and the original game of billiards (also known as “carom billiards”).

Carom billiards, which is still played today, is played with only three balls on a large pocketless billiards table. From that original game (probably created in France), came two other billiards games: pool and snooker.

Those three large families of games have many variations throughout the world, but all those variants are essentially played with the same tables and the same balls.

The carom billiards game is played on a table with no holes or pockets. The table is usually of very large dimensions (10 ft × 5 ft). Although, in France, they also play on tables with a wide array of dimensions.

Then we have the American pool, which is mostly played over tables fitting in three standard sizes. The regular size we find in homes is usually 8 ft × 4 ft, but there is also a smaller version of 7 ft × 3.5 ft that is used in bars and a larger version used for professional tournaments which makes 9 ft × 4.5 ft.

Finally, there is the snooker, which is played on enormous tables. The North American snooker table size is 10 ft × 5 ft, but an even larger size is used in Europe, with a table of 12 ft × 6 ft.

Hereinafter, we will use the generic “pool” term to identify the various billiards games, because pool tables are the most popular ones in homes.

All those tables are essentially formed the same way. They are based on a very solid frame that supports all the weight of the slate layers and the top of the table.

The hard surface from pool tables is made of a slate layer. This layer ranges from 19 mm to 60 mm (or ¾ of an inch to 2 ¼ inches).

The great density and hardness of slate make it the optimal material for pool tables, because this very hard surface allows a better roll of balls. This stone is very resistant to twists and other forms of deformations.

However, a pool table plateau is extremely heavy because of the slate’s enormous weight density. A single slate panel for a pool table can weigh as much as 500 kg (1,100 lb.), depending on the type and size of the table.

However, the slate layer of a pool table can include either a single panel, or be divided into two or three panels.

For the traditional carom billiards tables (those without pockets), this slate layer is heated up to ease up and speed up the ball movement even more by reducing the friction.

How to Move A Pool Table

déménagement table billard

Unless it is a very specific design created to be moved around without damaging it, found mostly in bar models, a pool table is considered a fragile object.

Its dimensions and weight make it very complex to move it around as a single piece. Moreover, pool table moving and handling are very dangerous operations, both for the movers and the table itself, plus the walls and floor surfaces encountered along the way.

We must keep in mind that the balance and level of a pool table are very fragile. Just like a piano has to be tuned every time it is moved, a pool table must also be professionally levelled after any move.

The only safe method to move a pool table, no matter its exact type or dimensions, is to disassemble it and transport it as detached parts.

Disassembling a pool table is not a simple task, but it is, by far, the best way to protect all its components. All the pieces are disassembled and packed separately. This greatly facilitates the handling of the components and ensures they will be easy to pass through doors, hallways, stairs, and so on.

Déménagement Total has experts in moving pool tables that will take great care in disassembling your pool table and to pack each component. They have disassembled and reassembled all types and sizes of pool tables.

If your table is of a less common design, they will still be able to do the job, thanks to their vast experience and their specialized tools.

Once all pieces of the play surface and the sides of the pool table are disassembled, your slate layer will be exposed. Additional men will join the team to easily handle this massive item without dropping it or damaging it in any way.

The slate boards will be well protected with layers of moving blankets held in place with tape to prevent any scratch that could affect the movement of balls over the table.

Finally, the base of the table will be disassembled with the same expertise and all its pieces will be well protected to prevent any damage.

All those pieces will then be loaded aboard the truck and well tied in place with straps and other protections to prevent any movement or shift during transportation.

Déménagement Total’s specialists in pool table moving and transportation will make sure that all measures are taken to ensure the integrity and absolute protection of your pool table.

They can rely on many years of experience in the transportation of fragile items, including pool tables, pianos, aquariums, and they have at their disposal the best tools and accessories to do their job.

How to Assemble and Level A Pool Table

Pool Table Moving and Assembly - 7

Once arrived at the new address, the same care will be given to the unloading of all the components, including their unpacking and assembling. The reassembling operation will begin by making sure your floor is levelled, to determine if surprises or complications arise.

Then, our pool table moving experts will measure up your room to position your pool table optimally so you have enough space on all sides to move around and play comfortably.

Then, the base of the pool table will be assembled. Our pool table moving specialists will make sure the base is well-levelled on every side. After installing your slate layer, they will measure everything again.

That is the perfect time if you want to change the felt (mat, carpet, cloth) of your pool table, since our specialists could install your new felt instead of your old one. They will then assemble the sides and the pockets (if needed, of course) while installing the felt and the railings.

For each set of levelling measurements, they will first measure the table along the length of the table, and proceed to any adjustment if needed to legs or other superior elements.

Then, they will do the same exercise on the width side. If they do any adjustment while levelling the table widthwise, they will measure the table lengthwise again to make sure everything is still good that way.

Once the table is completely assembled and installed, one last round of level verification will be done on all sides of the table (length, width, diagonals, corners, etc.), to deliver you a table that is perfectly levelled so you can do your best shots and impress your friends and other guests.

Great Diversity of Styles and Materials

pool table moving

Just a few years ago, all pool tables looked alike; there was little variety besides the wood species, the colour of the felt and the composition or shape of the pockets.

A pool table was something very similar to those seen in movies, with four legs and a wooden frame, a blue or green mat, etc.

Recently, we have seen a large variety of pool table models come up. The possibilities in design, materials and colours are now virtually limitless in order to match your table to the style and colours of your home.

There are now pool tables that do not have any legs, built like a kitchen island with a very large central base. Others can be converted into a dining table to give the room a dual vocation.

There are even outdoor pool tables for your deck, which was a sacrilege not so long ago. The variations and possibilities are endless.

Besides the countless style variations, materials are also very diversified. For the exterior part of this very particular furniture, exposed wood is now only one of the many possibilities.

The outside of the table can be of painted wood as well as synthetic materials like acrylic. Despite everything, wood remains the most popular finish for a pool table, ranging from traditional hard wood to exotic varieties, in all grains and colours.

Finally, with the great variety of finishing materials, we also see an explosion of colours, both for the exterior finish (legs and sides, for example) and the felt colour.

In the past, mats were either blue or green, while now you can choose among a dozen different colours to match or contrast with the colours of your pool room.

We also see variations in hidden parts of the pool table. More economical versions of pool tables use compressed wood for the play surface.

Wood is much lighter and less expensive than the slate, but offers a lower ride quality and the wood is prone to warping, unlike slate. All quality pool tables use slate.

All those variations are available in all styles of billiards tables (billiards, pool or snooker), and in all sizes to really adapt to the space you have.

No matter the model, size, materials or colours of your pool table, our experts will be able to disassemble it and reassemble it later, so it gives you years of superb entertainment with friends and family.

We understand your pool table is a great entertainment hub to host friends in the comfortable setting of your home, and our experts will make sure it is perfectly assembled and levelled for you.

Move Around and Level

pool table moving

We have talked in this article about pool table moving, but Déménagement Total’s specially trained pool table movers can also get to your home or business premises to simply move your pool table around, from one room to another, either on the same floor of your building or not.

That is the same type of work to be completed with the same cares and the same equipment as for a move, but without the moving truck.

Just as we do during our moving operations, we can also go take care of simply replacing the felt or the rubber sides of your pool table to refresh its looks and functionality.

You can also hire us if you wish to level up your pool table. A pool table can be out of level following problems with the structure of the table itself or the floor underneath, or after various shocks (like an earthquake, close-by construction work or hits on the table).

You then need to have it professionally levelled again to fully enjoy it.

Usually, a move with a turnkey installation service for a standard 4-by-8 foot pool table takes between 4-7 hours of work.
Are all movers able to install or assemble a pool table?

Ideally, the same pool table assemblers and movers who did the disassembly should reassemble the table, but sometimes it would be possible if all the parts of the table are in good condition.
