outdoor picnic tables for schools and parks feature a durability that makes
them ideal for any outdoor environment. Constructed from galvanized steel tubing
which by its very nature is rust resistant, tables are further protected by a
protective coating of Thermoplastic.
Thermoplastic is an interesting substance, to say the least. It is extremely powerful in the sense
that it is UV resistant, impact resistant, and vandal resistant to scratching
and marking. It is curiously soft
to the touch, however, so its toughness does not diminish personal comfort of
people using the table. If it is
cut with extreme force, it can be easily resealed by a heat gun. Thermoplastic comes in a variety of
colors that can be matched to any building architecture, campus landscape, or
many functional attributes that make steel
outdoor picnic tables for schools and parks ideally suitable for schools of
One of the most important
things that elementary school students need is personal safety. Every piece of equipment on the school
grounds, including seating areas, needs to be designed in special ways that
prevent exuberant children from injuring themselves. In fact, some children even see seating
areas as a form of playground equipment.

must therefore be lower to the ground and must have rounded corners and smooth

In middle schools, this is
not so much a problem. Children

seats. Many models sold by XPB

surface that kids can sit on to chat.
Seats can be built either in the form of benches or chairs that attach to
the table bases.
High school students need steel
outdoor picnic tables for schools and parks that have plenty of room to
spread out books and papers.
This is because many of them really do care about their studies. They want to go outside to work on
homework, read their textbooks, or setup their laptops. Ideally, any table on a high school
campus, and also on a college campus, will give them plenty of space for food
and study materials to be neatly organized around them.
Public outdoor recreational area need steel outdoor picnic tables
for schools and parks that will blend with the natural environment. Tables in past decades were made of wood
that naturally blended with grass, shrubs, and trees. Today’s tables are obviously made
of metal and synthetic coating which are not substances we associate with a
natural environment. Nevertheless,
this is not a barrier in the case of these tables. The geometry featured by so many of our
models, and the many earth tone colors they can ordered in, allow them to blend
with any forest, campground, or municipal park environment just as effectively
as their wooden predecessors of the past.
