Do you need a new table base for your café or restaurant table? Here at Café Solutions, we stock a wide range of bases to support all table sizes and shapes. From round to bolt in and foldable table bases, we’re sure to have a base to meet your needs and requirements.
Tables bases for cafes have to be robust and durable, yet at the same time, light enough for the table to moved from one position to another. Since they make up an integral part of a table, they also need to look good. In other words, they need to be functional and aesthetically pleasing.
We have a wide range of table bases in stock which come in many designs, including the popular cross base and circular base. Customers can also choose from traditional and contemporary bases for their table, made from materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, and resin. Our bases are designed to complement our range of table tops and can be purchased individually or as a table package.
How to choose a base for your table
There are 3 things to consider when choosing a base for your table: location, table shape, and size, weight.
The first consideration is will you be using your table base indoors or outside. Most outdoor bases are made from stainless steel, powder-coated steel, aluminium, or cast iron. If your café is in a coastal area with high levels of salt in the air, then aluminium provides the best protection from rust and corrosion. If this is not an issue, then any of the other materials mentioned will be suitable.
Table shape and size
The shape and size of your table are one of the biggest considerations when shopping for a table base. If you’ve ever leaned on a table and found it to start tipping, then that’s an indication that the wrong base has been fitted. Typically a long rectangular table will need a double stand one at each end to give it support while for a smaller round table, a single base in the middle will suffice.
Weight is another important factor. As a rule of thumb, the weight of your table base should coincide with the weight of your table. Lightweight tables like melamine and laminate work better with lighter cross-style bases while heavy wooden tables and resin work well with heavier disc and plate style bases.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure which type of stand to use. Our knowledgable staff will be happy to assist with your purchase.
