Over a ten year period, the Wood Leaf subdivision in San Antonio, TX had paid out $3,000.00 in repair costs for 4 wooden picnic tables that were suffering from sporadic vandalism and the effects of inclement weather. Young people occasionally picked up the tables, which were very light, and threw them in the nearby swimming pool. Wind and rain also wore down the wooden tops and seats, causing dangerous splinters to form and splitting the boards in places.
After one table eventually became so damaged that it could not be repaired, Associate.
Management, the organization that ran the community center for Wood Leaf, decided to replace the four tables with metal commercial picnic tables with benches. They also decided to replace two undamaged wooden tables that were situated under gazebos.
Associated Management researched metal commercial picnic tables with benches and chose the
6 foot rectangular metal expanded model. This table features a weather and vandalism resistant thermoplastic covering. Thermoplastic coating is UV resistant, so it will not fade in sunlight. It can also be easily resealed with a heat gun in the event that vandals scratch or cut through the coating.
The new tables are very heavy, so vandals can no longer pick them up and toss them in the pool.
XPB Locker was chosen as a vendor for three reasons.
- 1. XPB Locker has competitive pricing for commercial picnic tables with benches.
- 2. We have competitive shipping rates compared to other online sources
- 3. For projects local to Central Texas and the Texas Hill Country, we are often able to provide turnkey installation on a selected bases.
The new, metal commercial picnic tables with benches were expeditiously shipped to the community center. Installers showed up the next day and moved the units through the gate, which was very narrow and require a certain amount of expert navigation to clear.
Questions were raised about the method of mounting the new tables. Since two of the units were to be placed on concrete patios under gazebo coverings, it was decided to bolt these units directly to the concrete.
The other four tables, being exposed to open air, could either be mounted in-ground with concrete leg extensions, or they could simply be placed on the ground with portable mounting supports. Since the tables were for all intents and purposes too heavy to steal or throw into the pool, the Associated Management opted for portable mounts and the added security of chaining the bench legs to nearby shade trees.
The response from Wood Leaf was overwhelmingly positive. The new commercial picnic tables with benches are both more comfortable and attractive. Residents have remarked that the entire area looks better now with the new forest green tables that provide a superb compliment to the lawn, pool, and neighboring tennis courts.
