Coming Soon: NES Reliable ABS Folding Tables

60 Inch Round ABS Table

We have been selling our NES Reliable Plastic Folding Tables for over 10 years – same supplier, same specifications. We know our tables aren’t the cheapest on the market, but we know that they perform well, and allow the companies that use them to get their money’s worth out of them. They’re strong durable tables that work for most party rental companies, golf courses, catering companies and event venues that favour plastic over wood tables. But, there still exists the gold standard for folding tables – considered the strongest, most durable tables on the market: the ABS Folding Table.

These tables are the gold standard because they’re used most in high-use/high-turnover establishments. The ABS plastic is very structurally sturdy which gives the table the ability to stand up well to external impacts.

I’m pleased to announce we will be stocking a number of sizes of ABS Folding Tables – available beginning of June 2017!

Sizes available:

  • 6ft x 18” NES Reliable ABS Training Table
  • 8ft x 18” NES Reliable ABS Training Table
  • 6ft x 30” NES Reliable ABS Folding Table
  • 8ft x 30” NES Reliable ABS Folding Table
  • 60” Round NES Reliable ABS Folding Table
  • 72” Round NES Reliable ABS Folding Table

Additional product features include:

  • Tables made of highly durable ABS plastic which is very structurally sturdy with the ability to stand up well to external impacts
  • Easy to set up and take down
  • ¾” table edge (fits most wood table skirting clips)
  • Table legs fold for easy storage and handling
  • Corners designed to absorb and withstand a drop of 1ft without structural damage to the table or corner
  • 16 gauge square steel fame
  • PVC edging
  • Gravity lock folding legs
  • Paper honeycomb core
  • Comes in Grey only

We’re excited to offer these durable, easy to clean tables that will provide our customers with years of reliable service.

How strong is a Lifetime 6ft fold in half table?

Everyone wants to make sure that the products they buy are good quality products and because of that the stress test series was born. It has become one of our most popular blog series as it showcases how strong the products we sell are.

Continuing on with our stress testing series, we have a new video for you today. Because of how well-known Lifetime Products brand is, we often get asked how our tables compare to them. Last week, we showcased our 6ft fold in half table by stress testing the table using 44lb bags of salt until the table broke. This week’s post shows a video of us testing the lifetime 6 foot fold in half table to see how strong a lifetime fold in half table is. Check it out below!

We are in the practice of stress testing all our folding tables to ensure they’re strong and durable for our customers. The video below showcases our stress test on our 6 foot fold in half table. How we test the strength of the table is by piling 44lb bags of salt on the table to see at what point the table breaks. Check out how the fold in half table did.

How much do stacking chairs cost in Canada?

Blow Mold Stacking ChairStacking chairs can be a more comfortable and substantial chair to consider investing in for community centres, churches and schools. They have metal frames to hold large amounts of weight while being durable, yet are still light enough for most people to pick up and move by hand should they need to. They also are made to utilize banquet chair dollies (also known as stacking chair dollies) to transport more than a few at a time for set up and removal. After you’ve determined that a stacking chair best meets your centre, church, school or organization’s needs, the next question sure to be on your list is “how much do stacking chairs cost in Canada?” We’ll answer that question for you in the article below so you are able to gain a better understanding of the budget you’ll need to purchase your stacking chairs and / or how much you will need to fundraise.

As there are two different categories that stacking chairs fall into, we’ve broken the article down into cost of plastic stacking chairs and cost of upholstered stacking chairs (sometimes known as banquet chairs).

Cost of plastic stacking chairs in Canada

The average cost of plastic stacking chairs in Canada ranges from $30.95 – 70.95 not including taxes or shipping. The cost ranges due to the thickness of the metal frame, thickness of the plastic, the cost of petroleum (as plastics can be derived from petroleum), the intricacy of the design and the brand distributing the product. Suppliers that deal with commercial organizations will often have volume discounts as well to lower the cost per chair as the volume increases.

Cost of upholstered stacking chairs in Canada

The average cost of upholstered stacking chairs in Canada ranges from $35.95 to $80.95 not including taxes and shipping. The cost ranges due to the amount of fabric needed, the type of fabric (leather, vinyl, cotton, polyester, etc), the thickness of the metal frame and intricacy of frame design, where the product is manufactured and whether the upholstery is custom or stocked. As with plastic stacking chairs, suppliers that deal with commercial organizations will often have volume discounts as well to lower the cost per chair as the volume increases.

Hopefully this post gives you an idea of the approximate costs to be associating to your new stacking chair budget.
