DLT tables feature the finest true one inch thickness slates,
adding weight for accuracy and control. The 3 pieces slate sets are
precisely matched & registered. The top & bottom are diamond honed
to ensure level and consistent roll of the balls. The oversized
slate extends under the rails so that the rails can be fastened
directly to the slate and makes it possible to individually level
each piece of slate for obtaining a perfect level every time, thus
giving the best possible combination of play. The slate rests on a
¾" slated-liner made of hardwood that is precision-cut, milled, and
laminated, providing a quieter game, tighter cloth installation,
and a truer playing surface that will endure the test of time.
In addition to the slate liner, DLT pool tables incorporate a
solid-core board slate foundation. The solid-core board is an
engineered material that provides a flat level support area for the
slate to rest on.
Below the solid-core board is the Uni-frame support structure,
which offers the utmost in style and support. The support system
uses 1 ½" thick and 4 ½" tall hardwood beams, utilizing a grid
framework used where 2 cross beams run the width with 1 center beam
run the length. These beams are interlock to one another and
attached using heavy metal brackets. This method of construction
ensures maximum stability, keeping the cabinet squared and true
