I choose to do sectional warping on my floor looms, for a fast and efficient warping procedure. For a disucssion about sectional warping and why or why not to consider it, take a look at the post on the Journal. To use a sectional warping method, you have to first create your sections. I covered a range of methods in this post, which I hope it helpful! Once you have your sections you need to get them on the loom. I think that it’s best to use a tension regulator, sometimes called a tension box. It functions like a mini raddle + lease sticks for each section, and each section is like a mini warp.
Feeding the section through the tension regulator evens it out and makes sure it goes on smoothly. The Louët tension regulator fits the back beam of all Louët floor looms. Please check other looms for compatibility.
