Custom picnic table tops and seats are made of expanded metal.
Expanded metal creates a better surface area than standard steel. Like its name suggests, expanded metal is stretch to create elasticity. This is why you can actually feel the metal in a bench seat give just a little when you sit down. The steel is first stretched, then it is cut with a diamond pattern. You may notice when you sit on a bench made from expanded metal that it gives slightly, much like the surface of a very hard mattress or firm couch. Metal cut in this pattern allows users to sit on table benches for longer periods of time. The cuts in the metal also allow most rainwater to pass through so the seats dry very quickly.
Custom picnic tables have a black powder coating on their understructure.
This undercoating protects the base of the table from corrosion. It also saves a great deal of money on future maintenance because the coating is electrostatically applied as a skin to the metal surface. It retains its aesthetic for years and does not peel.
The thermoplastic coating protects the table top and benches.
Custom picnic tables have tops and benches that are protected by a special substance that is brightly colored, highly resilient, and somewhat elastic. The substance is dyed when manufactured, not painted, so it retains its color for the life of the product. Furniture 4 Outdoors has many standard and custom colors from which you can choose, so be sure to ask your account representative to share all of your options with you when you place your order.
Optional leg protectors and anti-skateboard tabs protect your tables from accidental damage and vandalism.
Portable picnic tables are often dragged by users when they are moved around. Leg protectors keep the bottom of the frame from being scratched. Anti-skateboard tabs prevent people from using the table top as a skateboard ramp. Thermoplastic is a tough substance, but you don’t want kids launching off of your picnic tables into mid-air. If your outdoor areas is frequented by skateboarders, you need these tabs.
