What is the Best Picnic Table Mount For You?
The best type of table mount for you depends on your needs. Before purchasing a new picnic table, consider the space where it will be placed and its purpose. This includes whether or not there are ground coverings like concrete that require specific mounting considerations in order to provide safety when placing the table upon them.
There are two types of picnic table mounts, including permanent and free-standing picnic tables, each with its own variations. Both types have variations based on size, accessibility, and the number of pedestals that you should take into consideration when choosing your picnic table mount.
Permanent Table Mounts
A permanent table mount is for a stationary picnic table. They are typically used for commercial settings where the arrangement of picnic tables is unchanging, such as outdoor seating in restaurants, cafes, and outdoor employee break areas. One thing to consider when deciding on which permanent mount you need is the surface of your area. If there is existing concrete, your best bet is any one of the surface mount styles. If you will be pouring a concrete surface, either surface mount or direct bury will work perfectly.
The legs or base of the picnic table are either physically buried into the ground or bolted to a concrete surface to provide maximum stability.
Free Standing Table Mounts
A free-standing picnic table offers the most flexibility with its portable design. There’s no need for burying the table legs or bolting them down permanently, so this type of picnic table can be used at many different types of locations.
Each type of picnic table mount offers its own benefits, but make sure to choose the design that best suits your needs. At Premier Polysteel, we have the design for any location, surface, or accessibility needed.
How to Select Your Picnic Table Mount?
Designing an outdoor space may seem like a daunting task, but you’ll be glad to know that it’s not as hard as some people think.
Take a look at the space and think about what kind of table might be suitable there. Make sure that you are paying close attention to the surface you want your picnic table to go on. This will help determine what picnic table mount can even go there.
Work out accessibility options so people with disabilities can enjoy themselves too. You want to ensure the size and the area around the picnic table are accommodating for people in wheelchairs or other disabilities.
Determine what kind of picnic table you will need; will the tables need to be fixed securely into the ground, or do they need to be portable? Flexibility is important when choosing your mounting option.
Go for the durable ones. Before purchasing anything, understand that maintenance may be required in the future, so you will want a picnic table that is sturdy and durable.
Calculate the expenses. Keep in mind that the picnic table mount that you want may require some installation. Once you have considered everything, you are ready to start building your new outdoor seating area.
Now that you know how to select your picnic table mount, let’s move on to our recommendations for picnic table mounts from our store and dive deeper into the details for each one.
