Choosing the right floor pad saves you time and money. Using the wrong floor pad could result in permanent surface scarring and costly repairs. Below are some basics on the best floor pad for the right application.

Industry Standard Pad Colours

Industry standards in floor pad colour have been established to differentiate the pad for the appropriate use and provide the best results. While a manufacturer may use their own colour codes for a specific task, the general rule of thumb is the darker the colour of the pad, the coarser the pad is.
