If your table tops are in reasonable condition, then you might want to consider swapping out your table bases with cast iron table bases to give them a new lease of life. As well as looking attractive, cast iron table bases provide several benefits too. So let’s dive in and take a closer look.

Cast Iron Table Bases – 5 Reasons to Purchase Them


One of the main reasons to purchase table bases made from cast iron is that they are extremely durable with the potential to last for many years. They’re ideal for busy cafes and restaurants as they can be moved around regularly without showing any signs of stress. If you like to change your table layout on a regular basis or you’re preparing for a function, cast iron table bases can be moved as many times as you want. Well, okay, they are quite weighty, but that’s a good thing since you can be assured that a heavy gust of wind won’t blow your tables over.


Natural materials such as granite, marble and wood are very much on trend but if you purchase the real thing, it can be very heavy. Heavy tabletops rely on equally strong and weighty table bases to give them the necessary support and to ensure stability, which is why cast iron table bases are the best choice.
