  • Sorbothane Makes Washing Machines Quiet

    Chances are that you’ve never heard of Sorbothane rubber.  But this innovative polymer has been around for decades and it has been leading a quiet revolution.  Sorbothane is also known as the world’s softest visco-elastic polyurethane polymer.  While that sounds like a lot of technical jargon it actually amounts to something very simple and very effective at absorbing washing machine vibration.

    Sorbothane is an ultra-soft polymer.  It’s about as soft as bubble gum, which allows it to do some pretty cool things.  First off, it’s so soft that it behaves like a fluid.  When vibration energy touches it, it flows through it like a wave, quickly dissipating and being absorbed away.  Second, it retains its shape like a solid so that it will last for years and years before it begins to break down.  In fact it will retain its properties for millions and millions of cycles, which is far more than you will ever be able to put it through.

    When Sorbothane is molded into the bottom layer of our Silent Feet anti-vibration pads for washing machines, it forms a vibration-absorbing barrier between your appliance and your home, apartment or condominium. The fluid-like Sorbothane continuously converts vibration energy from your noisy, shaking washing machine during its spin cycle and turns that energy into heat.  That heat energy is rapidly transferred to the air and gone are most of those annoying vibrations and noises that used to spread throughout your home.  The secret to our best in class anti-vibration pads is the Sorbothane.

  • Silent Feet are Commercial Grade

    Our customer service representatives get many calls every week from customers wondering if there is a commercial grade version of our popular Silent Feet anti-vibration pads for washing machines.  The surprising truth that we share with customers is that Silent Feet are commercial grade.  We designed them to be the best vibration and noise absorbing pads possible.  We spared no expense, cut no corners and created a product that works just as well in your home as it does in some of the industry’s most demanding environments.

    Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet both use the strongest and most durable vibration absorbing polymers.  They are designed with a thick reinforced top cup that evenly distributes even the heaviest loads.  This provides a stable and effective installation whether you have a modest top loading washer or a commercial grade Speed Queen washer.

    Our anti-vibration pads are even designed to handle the toughest and heaviest loads.  They will effectively support up to a 600 lb load across a set of 4 pads (that’s 150 lbs per pad).  This is more than enough to include both the weight of the washing machine, clothes and the water.  If you some how manage to find a washing machine setup that exceeds this static weight give us a call and we’ll find a solution that works for you.

    So buy with confidence knowing that you’re new set of Silent Feet anti-vibration casters are the best possible commercial grade pad for your washing machine and dryer.

  • Save big by renting your next washer and dryer

    Save big on money, hassle and piece of mind on your next apartment appliance and consider renting or leasing your washer and dryer

    A growing number of apartment, condo and home owners are renting appliances.  Selecting and purchasing a washer and dryer used to be a major purchase akin to choosing a living room set or a new car, but not any more.  These very utilitarian appliances can now be rented for a fraction of the price and you never have to worry about them growing too old and obsolete.  Not to mention that you never have to worry about costly repair bills.  The other main advantage to renting appliances is that if your living situation ever changes or you have to move you can end your lease contract without worrying about selling or moving the appliance.

    For parents of college age children, it used to be the norm to consider buying them a new washer and dryer as soon as they got their first apartment.  But what happened to that washer and dryer set after just a few years?  It usually ended up in the garage or storage unit collecting dust as soon as they moved or changed dwellings.  There is no need to waste money investing in extra garage ornaments, just rent and rest easy.  So give up the dream of buying a new washer set and trade up to the piece of mind offered by a state of the art rental set.  Just think, no mater what your situation is in the coming years, you won't have to worry about your washer and dryer.

    For added piece of mind, consider adding Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet pads to your rental washing machine.  This is especially important for apartment owners.  Add the world's best appliance anti-vibration pad before you neighbors start complaining about your late night laundry habits.

    If you're in the market for renting a new washing machine or dryer, here are some companies to consider.  Appliance Warehouse deals with many different appliance rental situations including leasing, apartment units, commercial, corporate and home contracts.  Rent-A-Center offers many different rental appliances as well as computers, electronics and furniture.  Azuma appliance leasing company has locations all across the US and makes renting washers and dryer easy.  Similar to Rent-A-Center, Aaron's offers a diverse selection of electronics, computers, furniture and appliances like washing machines and dryers.  Rent Crusader is another great option for customers looking to rent or rent-to-own a washing machine and dryer.  These are just a few of the national appliance rental chains.  There may also be local rental, lease and rent-to-own washing machine and dryer companies in your area.  Consider this option next time you are in need of a new appliance, but don't forget that all washing machines benefit from installing Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet anti-vibration appliance pads.
