VibeAway™ pads are specially designed washing machine anti-vibration pads for washing machines and dryers. The 100% crumb rubber pad, made from recycled tires, is designed to reduce the transfer of vibration that occurs in most typical washing and drying cycles. It is a shock absorption pad that is used to reduce sound, vibrations, and pulsating of washing machines, dryers, table saws, freezers and other large appliances. Our VibeAway™ pads prevent washing machines from "walking," and help prolong the life of your washing machine, dryer or other appliance. They also reduce the need to reinforce upper level floors to reduce vibration and noise.

VibeAway™ pads, made from 100% recycled tire rubber, address important environmental concerns and problems facing the planet today.
How big is the problem of worn out tires? In 2003, the Rubber Manufacturers Association estimated that there were 275 million tires in stockpiles across the United States, and that approximately 290 million scrap tires are added each year. Scrap tires provide an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes, which carry and transmit life-threatening diseases such as encephalitis, West Nile and Eastern Equine virus, and dengue fever in some regions. Stockpiles can also catch on fire as a result of lightning strikes, equipment malfunctions or arson.
VibeAway™ reducse the environmental impact of waste, and to operate only utilizing "green" technologies and products formed the company. One solution was to utilize used tires to address the serious problem concerning high-speed front load washing machine vibration and noise. Because front load washing machines spin extremely fast, proper balancing is critical. This problem is increased on upper level laundry room floors thus creating vibration of your "walking" washing machine. The manufacturers recognized the problem and recommend that homeowners reinforce upper level floors which is expensive and not practical. VibeAway™ pads can also be used on top load washing machines to prevent "walking," and can also be placed under dryers to create a level working surface between washing machines and dryers.
Make sure that the washing machine is level before installing pads. Start with a clean dry floor. Lifting one side at a time, place pads under the feet of the washing machine. (Assistance may be needed lifting the machine.) Using two people is the recommended method. Make sure that the feet of the machine fit securely in the recess of the pad. Make sure that the pads do not move or spin under the feet. It may be necessary to adjust the feet slightly to hold the pads firmly to the floor. Recheck level.
TGPC, Inc. assumes no responsibility for personal injury, mechanical or physical damage while installing or using the pads. Pads should be professionally installed. Not responsible for any discoloration of the floor that may occur. Will not help reduce vibration of severely unbalanced loads. These pads are intended to help reduce the transfer of vibration from washing machines and dryers and for no other use. B Green Innovations, Inc. will not be responsible for pads that are used incorrectly or not for their intended use.
Helpful Hints to Avoid Unbalanced Loads:
Use laundry detergent designed for front load washing machines
Sort clothes by type of fabric. Wash heavy fabrics with only heavy fabrics, and lighter fabrics with lighter fabrics. The weight difference between heavy and light fabrics when wet can cause an unbalance.
Combine large and small items of the same fabric, loading larger items first. Larger items should not be more than half of the total load.
If possible, wash only full loads. An empty space in the drum can also cause an unbalance.
Most importantly, make sure the washing machine is level, and the leveling feet are locked in place. VibeAway™ pads work for all types of washing machines/dryers
