  • Vibration Solution Announces New Blog Post on How Anti-vibration Product Developments Relate to the Space-Age Wonder Material Sorbothane

    Chicago, Illinois - September 29, 2016. Vibration Solution, a leading online retailer of top-rated anti-vibration pads, is pleased to announce the release of a new educational blog post describing the product lines based on the “miracle material” Sorbothane. Sorbothane is a crucial component of the “Silent Feet” products, used to stop washing machine walking, and other tasks that require isolation of vibrations. Continue reading

  • America's #1 Washing Machine Pad 6-years and Running

    Silent Feet were first launched more than 6 years ago.  At that time there were very few options available for owners of noisy, vibrating and walking washing machines.  Most owners turned to home-cooked remedies such as half tennis balls and rolled up gym socks as makeshift pads for their laundry appliances.  But Vibration Solution had a better idea.  Our company conceived of a product that would absorb massive amounts of vibration while also locking the washer in place semi-permanently.  This ideal product would feature high quality materials and simplistic but appealing design styling.  It would be compact and unobtrusive.  But nothing like this existed and it took two years of testing and numerous product revision before our engineers finally arrived at the products that you see today.

    The key to making Silent Feet the best anti-vibration pad in the world would be the unique adaption of Sorbothane rubber.  Sorbothane had originally been developed for the insole shoe market as a much higher performing alternative to the popular Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel.  While seeming to be an unlikely material for our products, Sorbothane combined numerous desirable traits including the highest energy absorption of any polyurethane rubber, exceptionally long material life and a natural tacky finish that could hold pesky washing machines in place by semi-permanently sticking to smooth floors.

    Our award winning Original Silent Feet
    Our Original Silent Feet are still the only product to offer the easy installation option

    But the final development was still to come.  One day during testing, our engineers, having grown tired of having to struggle to squeeze themselves into tight spaces around washers and dryer while installing the prototype pads, decided that there had to be a way to make installation easier.  A quick hunt around the test lab resulted in the idea to use a felt like cloth on the bottom of the rear pads.  This would allow the engineers (and eventually our happy customers) to simply pull their washer out from its tight space, install the rear pads and then slide it back into place.  The front feet would remain the same preserving their tacky anti-walking characteristics.  All at once we knew that we had stumbled on the perfect solution.  Not only did we have the best materials, the smallest, most compact, most visually appealing, most effective product that also happened to be made in the USA, but it now took 2 people less than 5 minutes to install.  And that installation time includes opening the package as well as cracking open a tasty soda while admiring the finished installation.

    Today, we sell these pads as our Original Silent Feet.  They are still the industry's best anti-vibration pad for washing machines and dryers.  They are still the only pad of their type to offer the easy install option.  And with hundreds of thousands of pads sold each year, they are one of our best selling products.

  • What’s the difference between Original and Anti-Walk Silent Feet washing machine pads?

    We get lots of questions about what the difference is between our Original Silent Feet (in the green package) and our Anti-Walk Silent Feet (in the red package).  The answer is very simple.  But let me start by saying that there is no “better” product, they both absorb the same amount of vibration and provide exactly the same amount of protection for your home.  In fact, there are only two things that are different between the two products (three, if you count the color of the packaging).  Those two things are the style of the two rear pads in each set.

    Why are the rear pads different?  Because when we first invented Silent Feet washing machine pads, we wanted them to be the easiest pads to install on your washing machine and dryer. So we covered the bottom of the rear pads with felt to allow them to slide.  This allows you to pull the machine away from the wall so that you can easily place the rear pads under the washer.  Then you simply slide the washer back into place and insert the two sticky front washer pads under the front feet.  Poof! You’re done and the two anti-walk front feet hold the washer in place preventing minor to moderate walking.

    But then one day we had a customer call us up and ask if they could have a set of Silent Feet with 4 of the sticky pads?  We said sure! And Anti-Walk Silent Feet washing machine pads were born.  To make installing Anti-Walk Silent Feet easier, we recommend wetting the bottom of the two rear pads with a 50/50 water and liquid dish washing detergent mixture.  This will allow the pads to slide slightly while you adjust the position of your washing machine.  Then place the two front feet, allow about an hour for the water to evaporate off the rear pads and you’re all set.

    We hope that answered your questions about the differences between our award winning washer pads.  For over 5 years now, Silent Feet have been the most effective washer pad on the market.  Try them in your laundry room today!

  • 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.

  • Choosing the Right Washing Machine Pad

    There are many different and confusing washing machine pads, mats and other products out there.  To make you’re life and decision simpler we’ve created our award winning line of Silent Feet Anti-Vibration Pads.  We’ve designed 2 types of pads to help meet your exact needs.  Now, lets figure out which one is best for you.

    If you have a front or top-loading washing machine that vibrates, makes noise and possibly even walks or moves a little bit (less than 6 inches per load).  If you have a small or confined laundry room where it may be hard to access the rear feet of the washing machine.  If you have cabinets or a countertop directly over the washing machine.  If any or all of these statements are true for you then our Original Silent Feet Anti-Vibration Pads (in the green package) are the best option for you.  They absorb up to 94% of vibration and prevent mild to moderate walking.

    If you have a front or top-loading washing machine that vibrates, makes noise and walks more than 4-6 inches per load of laundry.  If you have a stacked washer and dryer.  If you have a drip or catch pan under your washing machine.  If you have space to access the rear feet of your washing machine during installation or can remove your dryer while installing the pads.  If any or all of these statements are true for you then our Anti-Walk Silent Feet Pads (in the red package) are the best option for you.  They absorb up to 94% of vibration and prevent mild, moderate and severe walking.

    If you have a designer color washing machine in shades of red or blue.  If you are looking for a way to add some additional color to your laundry room.  If either of these statements apply to you than the Premium Ocean Blue or Premium Crimson Red versions of either our Original Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet pads are the best option for you.  These Premium versions of our products offer the same 94% vibration reduction and walking prevention plus the bottom half of the pads have been tinted to give you the extra color that you want.

    All of these products are available now for fast delivery directly to you.  If you still have questions about choosing the right product for you, give us a call at 800-399-7316 between 9am and 5pm EST.

     

  • Old Homes Need Protection From Modern Washing Machines

    If you are the owner of an old or historic home you are probably all too familiar with creaks, squeaks and other noises that appear as a building ages.  Lots of people enjoy the character that these sounds add to a home.  Most of us have figured out which stairs creak and how to avoid making noise when we sneak downstairs to grab a midnight snack.  Even kids enjoy figuring out how to sneak past those age-old noisy booby traps to see what Santa has brought them on Christmas day.  But not all squeaks are the same.

    If you have a washing machine you may have noticed that the floor in or near your laundry room has been developing new squeaks and creaks much more quickly than the rest of your home.  This is often the result of the vibration caused by the washing machine when it is in spin cycle.  Old homes are built with metal nails and wooden beams.  As the wood ages it shrinks and warps causing new stresses on the structural joints.  Vibration then allows the nails to begin to loosen and slip which creates gaps and flexing in the floors.  This then leads to the noises that you hear around your home.  In extreme cases this can even eventually lead to structural failure.

    There is a simple fix that can drastically slow the aging process of your home.  Since the vibrations from your washing machine are the primary accelerator of structural joint fatigue, preventing these vibrations from reaching the floor of your laundry room is critical.  Silent Feet Anti-Vibration Pads create an isolation barrier that absorbs up to 94% of that vibration energy.  They take just 5 minutes to install and will provide you with over 10 years of guaranteed protection.  Order your set of Silent Feet washing machine pads for your old home today.
