Relax In The Shade With A Round Picnic Table and Umbrella
A round picnic table and a shade umbrella is a great combination for sunny days when you want to enjoy the outdoors but don’t want to be overwhelmed by sun exposure. With the combination of options and configurations Premier Polysteel makes for their round picnic tables with umbrellas you can enjoy a comfortable, shaded day outdoors for lunch or just taking a breather.
Sturdy, comfortable and well-built Premier Polysteel picnic tables offer users a lot. Let us take you through the reasons why the Premier Polysteel outdoor furniture portfolio is a strong option if you’re considering shaded picnic tables in your outdoor area, from public spaces and recreational areas, to employee or commercial applications.
Premier Polysteel makes incredibly robust and durable Round Picnic Tables made for user comfort and long-term installation
Balanced, heavy duty builds are the trademark of Premier Polysteel engineering – you can see those characteristics on full display in the collection of robust picnic tables we offer. The strong steel framework sets the foundation. A foundation, which, by the way, is stable and sturdy enough to hold a car on top of it! The premium steel is fabricated in the USA at our facility by craftspeople who are experts in their trade, and coated with polyvinyl (plastisol) to ensure no rust, or other environmental degradation over time.
There are additional benefits to the material selection and the manufacturing process, and we’ll highlight them below:
- Premium steel structures that are coated in about ⅛” of polyvinyl (Plastisol) allows zero rust, and because of special inhibitors, the exterior coating is UV stable, and highly resistant to cuts, mold, rot, and fading
- Additionally the coating sheds water quickly in combination with the steel surface style, which can be ordered as expanded metal or perforated metal
- Extremely well-balanced and strong design
- Temperatures won’t affect user comfort, thanks to the coating, which allows the ambient temperature to moderate the temperature of the furniture
- Heavy weight designs minimize movement, safety issues and theft
- Multiple mounting options can help with vandalism
- The sizing offers a close conversational distance, while still allowing enough room to eat, spread out and create a comfortable space for new acquaintances
- A large variety of colors and of course, several options for design and surface configuration offer a way to harmonize your outdoor furniture and meet needs for your user’s preferences
- Umbrella holes are standard (in freestanding models) and can be combined with premium umbrellas to manage heat and sun exposure for users
Popular options, and frame styles for Round Picnic Tables
A note: Premier Polysteel offers many ADA-compliant products. You can view these products in our shop. The round picnic tables are not ADA compliant because of the design. These are made for fitting in tight places with maximum seating capacities. You may consider using a mix of outdoor furniture options that allow for proper ADA-compliance if you have a need for it.
Leg colors and seat/top colors can be ordered custom to keep your aesthetic intact. You can also order different surface styles, which can help with water drainage and improve usability, depending on your needs.
There are 12 colors that can be ordered, and the plastisol is colored throughout the entire envelope of the coating, so even if the surface is scratched, your picnic table will continue to look great. The UV resistant coating also maintains that color for many years.
Round picnic tables are available in a free standing tube steel design, or a direct-bury pedestal-style and can be paired with mounting kits to minimize movement or theft. Pedestal direct-bury mounted styles are permanent installations
Single pedestal picnic tables do not include an umbrella mounting hole, because of the way they are designed to be mounted for rigidity and long-term placement. These may be a good option for high wind areas, where umbrellas are not a good full-time option and where permanent mounting may be required.
Umbrellas to help shade the Round Picnic Tables we offer
We offer premium umbrellas to help shade and protect users that sit around our round picnic tables. The fitment and sizing matches perfectly with our designs and you can rest assured you’ll get great utility underneath these umbrellas. Protection from sun and rain, while still providing great protection against the occasional wind too, these umbrellas also offer a good way to prevent heavy tree debris from falling on users too.
We have commercial grade umbrellas made to a rigorous performance standard, but as a rule of thumb, umbrellas should not be used in sustained strong wind conditions – they are not built for that purpose. Your installation will help to determine the best practices for umbrella usage throughout the year. Generally, the ease of implementation (including the folding and collapsing of umbrellas) will help in maintaining and cleaning the umbrellas and removing them or collapsing them as needed.
Sunbrella Fabric is made to last and looks incredible
Sunbrella is a storied and proven fabric that has applications in many industries, but has been a prevalent performer in the marine industry and the outdoor furniture industry. In keeping with impeccable standards, Premier Polysteel has opted to use the industry leading fabric (Sunbrella) on umbrellas that are compatible with the round picnic tables we produce and sell.
Acrylic fibers are woven together to create a canvas-like fabric that is soft and pliable while still allowing for the fade resistance and weather resistance Sunbrella is famous for.
Sunbrella is UV protected to resist fading, rot, mildew, staining and other concerns caused by environmental factors – the track record of the fabric is exceptional and relative to other fabrics it performs for longer and with better results. It is also highly water resistant, and will easily keep you dry for significant time under light and some moderate rain showers. By the time you would be worried about getting wet underneath a Sunbrella fabric based umbrella, you would likely be moving inside because the weather has been inclement for too long to be comfortable in general. The heavier cloth offers very good sun and heat protection, keeping the user underneath it cool and comfortable.
