Rectangular Non-Stacking Table with 2 Trays, Ailsa, Light Grey Crushed Bent Steel Frame, Charcoal PU Edges – 710mm(H)

A classroom classic, and understandably so, is the crushed bent steel frame rectangular table. After years of research and development, experts at Metalliform have designed the ultimate solution in classroom furniture, taking the most durable materials on the market and finishing them with their own unique, attractive style. With efficient processes and decades in the industry to drive down manufacturing costs, it is impossible to find tables of this quality elsewhere for such a bargain price.

Design
Each table has a 710mm high worktop, making them ideal for children aged 11-14. For optimal comfort, posture, and lumbar support however, it is important to select chairs that suit this height; in this case, chairs with a seat height of 430mm. In doing so, not only will children avoid pain and poor posture during long periods of sitting, but your classroom furniture will also comply with BS EN 1729:2016. These tables come with charcoal edges, grey trays, a light grey frame and an Ailsa top - if a blue silk or beech top would better suit your classroom aesthetic, please see D25882 or D25888, respectively.

These tables are designed with a classic rectangle shape to accommodate partnered activities or small work groups, and optimise space in a classroom through a coherent, easy to navigate layout. With this - in addition to the hardwearing crushed bent steel frame finished with smooth, glossy epoxy powder coating - it has never been easier to achieve contemporary style that is guaranteed to persist in even the most demanding environments.

These tables are unable to be stacked for storage, instead opting for a more condensed frame design that allows for a tight, seamless fit when tables are pushed together. This is perfect for classes where groupwork is a possibility, and the aesthetic and durability of a crushed bent steel frame is preferred to that of fully welded alternatives. Although non-stacking tables allow for great versatility in this way, stacking tables are more beneficial for those who may need to frequently clear space in multi-use classrooms. Attached to the frame are 2 trays, providing space for two pupils to store their work, or - for tables that will be shared with multiple pupils - general storage for books, calculators, stationery and other learning resources. This not only prevents students from losing their work or forgetting to bring it to class, but also makes life easier for teachers who won’t have to collect resources back at the end of a lesson. The 76mm deep trays match the edge colour for an attractive, complimentary look that will improve every learning environment in both style and practicality.

Construction
Each of these tables is constructed using 18mm thick MDF with a high-pressure laminate finish. This provides an inexpensive yet durable and smooth surface which makes the table both stylish and functional in a learning environment. Underneath the table is a pair of 76mm capacity plastic trays that tuck away neatly when closed so tables can be pushed together without obstruction. The trays are grey to match the frame and compliment the high impact Duraform PU edges, which again add to the aesthetic whilst simultaneously providing protection. Unlike alternatives, Duraform PU edges are famous for their ability to resist scratching and chipping without needing to be re-treated over time. Duraform is also applied as a spray so cannot be picked off by bored pupils.

Also durable is the crushed bent steel frame underneath, which provides unmatched resilience when supporting heavy weight, and is longer lasting than any other frame material on the market. Its epoxy powder coating finish is resistant to abrasions, impact, temperature and chemicals, helping protect the look of the frame throughout its lifespan. In fact, with this combination of materials, we can proudly offer a 15 year guarantee to help your school make the most of its tight budget.
