This combination of cutting-edge billiard technology, which we excel at here at Fusiontables, and the beauty of a meticulous finish, which, today, only dedicated craftsmen are able to offer, has produced a design and ergonomics that each person will feel to be exceptional, something which will last for several generations. High-quality components, Hi-tec innovations and modern materials, the meticulous selection of the very best wood timbers.
Many pool tables are fitted with a device for raising or lowering the table to the heights required for playing and eating. The device is often hidden in the structure and thus in the table profile, making the table rather impractical and often less attractive as it is chunkier to look at. In our pursuit of a streamlined design, Fusiontables decided to integrate its lifting system into the table legs, making it completely invisible.
All our transformable pool tables are fitted with the Easy-Lift system. This allows you to raise the table, without any effort, from 75cm to the official height for a comfortable game of pool. The system does not require any specific maintenance and is fitted with a patented automatic two-level fastening system to ensure a stable, regular and flat playing area when the table is in a "high" position.
This system allows each leg to be adjusted individually and very accurately, guaranteeing that your modern pool table will always be at the right height.
Obviously, to obtain a long-lasting and high-quality pool table, the slate, the pool cloth, the pockets and nets and the cushions must also be of exceptional quality.
In order for all the transformable billiard table's parts to be inserted unobtrusively within the less than 12 cm (4 ½’’) thick Fusion table’s profile, an ingenious and unique pocket system has been developed. This consists of a strong high-tech elasticised nylon membrane able to hold all the balls pocketed during the game, which returns to its original flat position when the balls are removed. There is also a metal slider system above for storing the balls in the pockets for longer without deforming them. Obviously, to obtain a long-lasting and high-quality pool table, the slate, the pool cloth, the lifting system and the cushions must also be of exceptional quality.
The Fusion billiard table is fitted with Velocity K66 rails, known for offering one of the best bounces, thus enabling great precision in the game. The rails on most pool tables are made of synthetic materials or natural rubber. Synthetic rubber rails will obviously lose their elasticity over time and become what are called "dead rails". The best brands use natural rubber, which guarantees a perfect and lasting bounce. Obviously, to obtain a long-lasting and high-quality pool table, the slate, the pool cloth, the pockets and nets and the lifting system must also be of exceptional quality.
The Fusion table is always fitted with a Simonis table cloth, a worldwide brand and benchmark for this type of covering. These cloths, containing at least 85% wool, brushed according to professional standards, guarantee optimum speed, a smooth roll, easy maintenance and an exceptional lifespan.
The pool table cloth (the playing surface) is generally made of Nylon and wool for premium tables and synthetic fibres for the others. Only a superior quality cloth will guarantee the gentle, smooth and precise movement of the ball. Experienced players are very demanding when it comes to the quality of the cloth, and worsted wool fibres produce the speed and the best precision in the game.
Simonis also offers a special liquid-resistant fibre, which could be useful for "livelier" meals.
This anti-stain cover is called H2O and is available in four colours in the Fusiontables brochure.

The Fusion table is fitted with a 19 mm thick natural stone, which has been dressed in our workshops. Since the marble is in one piece, it does not require any adjustments by a professional at a later date, as is the case for traditional three-piece slate.
There is currently no valid alternative to slate for playing pool. The substitutes used by "cheaper" manufacturers are composite wood, fibre glass and other synthetic components, but none of these are accepted by pro players as they do not offer the same stability, durability and precision as natural slate.
Slate is the product of thousands of years of volcanic sedimentation. After extraction, this high-quality material is cut, calibrated and altered, which involves a great deal of work. Standard slate is available in several different thicknesses depending on the size of the table and the game selected.
