Heavy Duty Picnic Tables
We are a purveyor of some of the most heavy duty picnic tables on the market. When you look at our products, you’ll recognize them. They are at home in thousands of public spaces and private businesses and commercial spaces throughout the United States.
In fact, we make heavy duty commercial picnic tables so strong they can support the weight of a car. They are stable in higher wind load areas, and combined with specific mounting options, offer all-weather, all season, theft protection, wind protection, and are impervious to weather concerns like snow and water and UV exposure.
We made it our mission to provide plastisol coated steel products that last – and we back our heavy duty picnic tables with a best in the industry 20 year warranty. We can do that, because our products are built to exacting standards and utilize premium materials.
We are also priced at a compelling price point relative to market competitors – especially when you consider our lower total costs of ownership over the average life-cycle of our picnic tables and other heavy duty outdoor furniture.
We don’t want to be too sales-y about this topic though. And we hope to provide real value to the readership of our blog, which consists of industry experts in procurement, design, architectural, governmental organizations, commercial planning and operational logistics for major companies and organizations everywhere.
We invite you to read on to understand how our heavy duty commercial picnic tables can offer significant value to your space and be a good fit for your budget, and your ongoing maintenance requirements – we offer what we believe to be best in class total cost of ownership. Part of that is due to our zero compromise designs and material choices. Part of that is due to the nature of the lower total maintenance needs of our heavy duty outdoor furniture.
We’ll let you decide where we fit on the list of market competitors – here is a run down of what we do.
Premier Polysteel makes the best heavy duty picnic tables in the world – Don’t take our word for it – look at the facts
We have a lot of examples of picnic tables in public spaces for more than 2 decades. 20+ years is a long time without having to replace a picnic table, especially considering many of these picnic table placements are in super high traffic areas.
But anecdotal evidence may not be what you’re looking for, so here are some cool facts about how heavy duty our commercial grade picnic tables are:
- We have a warranty of 20 years on our products
- Water drains easily from the perforated or expanded metal designs
- Plastisol (polyvinyl) coated steel offers all the “proofs” – it is waterproof, UV proof, mildew and mold proof, and while they may not be completely ‘fireproof or vandal or theft proof’, they are HIGHLY resistant to these, and the material will not perpetuate a flame
- Our products are stable, easy to use and can be left in position year round regardless of environmental exposure
- These heavy duty picnic tables can be pressure washed and even with hot water, or cleaned with commercial strength cleaning agents
- We once put a car on top of a picnic table to show how strong it was
- We offer many options to further enhance placement and deter theft and movement, even in high wind or high crime areas
The characteristics of the right heavy duty commercial picnic table
We believe that a heavy duty picnic table should still be approachable, comfortable, and easy to use. We build accessible tables and strong options for big gatherings and large groups. Our picnic tables can handle many users at once. They are perfect for public facing installations.
We believe that outdoor commercial picnic tables should be weatherproof. After it rains, it’s beautiful. Why should your guests in an outdoor space be deterred from sitting on a picnic table? Ours drain fast and are comfortable to sit on pretty quickly after weather events.
We believe that picnic tables should not have to be moved into storage during the winter or other harsh times of the year. Ours are stable, strong and capable of being in place all year long, which is a change from recycled plastic picnic tables that may not be as durable. They can even be mounted permanently.
We believe that picnic tables should be easy to maintain. If you have a park you expect to be in existence for 50+ years, there is going to be a lot of maintenance and upkeep from the facilities side of the equation. We build products that minimize that requirement. We think it’s important to minimize total cost of ownership over the long-term and make furniture that is easy for staff to upkeep.
The case for Plastisol Coated Steel Picnic Tables
- Plastisol coats the outside of our steel structures. That means they are completely insulated from moisture, rust, mildew, etc.
- That also means no sharp edges or holes for bugs or pests to hide, which is definitely a positive compared to wooden picnic tables
- Heavy, stable and mountable with several options – means minimal wind effect, low chance of theft and vandalism concerns
- Ready quickly after rain or snow events
- Comfortable to use with easy ingress/egress, and properly sized footprints (we also make accessible picnic tables)
- Normal UV damage is not a concern – the plastisol has UV inhibiting properties
- We have a 20 year warranty and our products are robust enough to not need the warranty, generally
Other market options for commercial picnic tables
Sure you could pick concrete picnic tables, but they are ultra heavy, monolithic and don’t have some of the benefits that plastisol coated steel does.
You could also pick aluminum, but they get hot or cold, depending on the weather. Ours are no hotter or colder than the ambient temperature outside.
You could pick fiberglass, and they are lightweight and flexible – sometimes too lightweight and flexible. They are also pretty decent performers in the sun, but prolonged exposure to UV rays can degrade them and make them unappealing aesthetically, and then what happens when they start to splinter?
You could pick wood, but they require major upkeep. Same with galvanized or steel only products. They don’t have some of the benefits of our products as well as the added protection our products offer.
Plastic is more susceptible to breakage and can be hard to maintain in certain environments. This includes tables made of recycled plastic.
With the exception of concrete, all of these have higher maintenance costs associated with them.
Ultimately, we aren’t trying to dissuade you to look at available market options based on our thoughts on other materials. We are here to show you why plastisol covered steel picnic tables might be the best heavy duty picnic tables option on the market relative to peers – and every organization has their own sweet spot. We don’t want to try to tell you why competitors don’t stack up to our products, we recognize many benefits from other materials and manufacturers.
What we do hope you see from our basic exploration of picnic tables here is that we are trying to build something that has legacy quality and likely aligns with your organization’s internal goals for sustainability, durability and longevity, and provides value long-term. We offer a wide selection of quality products.
