This pool table cover is indeed heavy-duty and is made out thick, brown or black, backed “Naugahyde” (vinyl) that has an aged leather look. It is fitted (like a fitted sheet), so that the table’s top and sides are protected. The side curtain measures 7-1/2″ high. The seams are double-stitched and reinforced. This cover will add longevity to your table’s finish and extend its life. Measuring the outside of your billiard table, 7-foot size fits up to 89″ x 50″ and 8-foot size fits up to 98″ x 54″ size tables.
