Does Melamine Serveware Warp in Commercial Dishwashers?

We had an interesting question asked of us that we thought worth answering on our blog. A potential customer asked if our melamine serveware would warp in commercial dishwashers.

For those not familiar with melamine, it is a synthetic resin that is used to form durable, break-resistant dinnerware, serving platters, and serving bowls. Melamine serveware can look almost identical to porcelain or be dyed to look like wood, marble, slate or stone. We specifically choose our melamine serveware to look as close to porcelain as possible – we’ve even had trade show attendees do a double take once they feel it!

Commercial dishwashers are like residential dishwashers on steroids and they often either use sanitation chemicals or higher heat to properly wash dinnerware, serveware, flatware and glassware. It is understandable that a potential customer would have a concern regarding warping in a commercial dishwasher.

Melamine platters or bowls works well in a temperature range of 2°C – 93°C (35.6°F - 200°F). Anywhere below zero degrees melamine platters and bowls will get quite brittle and breakage will more easily occur. A temperature above 200 degrees and warping will more easily occur. Commercial dishwashers work up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit so given Melamine’s wide temperature range you should not have warping issues putting them in your dishwasher.

Coming Soon: Metallic Chair Sashes

Last year we brought in wedding chair covers in both spandex and polyester. This helped banquet halls, golf courses and hotels extend their banquet chair investment while rental companies could have another option to upsell brides on. The chair covers were available in the more neutral colours of white and black.

This year we’re continuing to expand our tablecloth / chair cover inventory. We decided to venture into offering a little more colour. You heard it here first…

I’m pleased to announce that coming at the end of January are Metallic Chair Sashes.

Metallic Chair Sash

Available in gold metallic, these chair sashes give an extra oomph to white or black spandex chair covers. Gold continues to be hot colour in the special event industry and these metallic chair sashes would complement gold rimmed dinnerware or gold flatware perfectly.

Additional details:

  • Machine washable
  • Works on different chair backs regardless of shape
  • 190gsm spandex

Pricing will be formally set once they’re in stock so check back to the blog for the announcement that they’re now in inventory!

What You Were Reading on the Blog in 2016

To say 2016 has been an eventful year would be a vast understatement.

Around the world there have been some news stories worthy of the history books – a jaw dropping U.S. election, Brexit, the devastating Fort McMurray wildfires, the highs and lows of the Rio Olympics, and the Queen turning 90 – to name a few. Looking back on our past year, we had some historic events in our office – though not quite on the same scale as the previous stories.

In the past twelve months, we added over 33 new products, doubled our warehouse space in the Toronto Area, and experienced a 30% growth in our average monthly website traffic.

The 6 articles shared here are part of the reason why.

The Best Tent Manufacturers in Canada-

The Best Chef Autobiographies to Read this Summer-

How much do chiavari chairs cost to buy in Canada-

How much weight can plastic folding tables hold-

The best companies for event staffing in Toronto-

Porcelain dinnerware vs china dinnerware vs ceramic dinnerware-

But without a doubt, the biggest reason why we’ve had such a stellar year is because of readers like you. Thank you for reading and sharing our content throughout the industry! We couldn’t have done this without you and we look forward to bringing in more event equipment for you to offer your clients! We also look forward to continuing to learn, grow and impart wisdom as the industry grows. Cheers to a prosperous 2017 in the Rental Industry!

National Event Supply has Relocated!

Nashua Drive

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a safe New Year’s Eve! Since December 1st we have been busy moving our Mississauga warehouse location. All employees pitched in throughout the month to ensure we were up and running in the new location on Monday December 19th in the new Mississauga Ontario Headquarters.

Since our move took place over the holiday season and email / mail / website communications happened around the same time, I thought it best to also include on our blog that we have now moved to our new location. I’m sure some of the communications fell through the cracks with some people what with all the vacations enjoyed during this time of year.

You can find us at:
3544 Nashua Drive
Mississauga, ON
L4V 1L2

Our phone number, toll free number and fax number have remained the same.

Here are directions from the major routes to our new location.

We hope to see you at our new warehouse sometime in the near future!

Difference between resin gold chair and plastic gold chair

Today’s blog is a really short and simple one. One of our customer service representatives got asked an interesting question regarding gold chiavari chairs. The prospect asked “what is the difference between a resin gold chair and a plastic gold chair?”

The answer is – there’s no difference.

Resin and plastic can be used interchangeably to describe material used for resin Chiavari chairs.

Check out all of the blog posts we’ve written on Chiavari chairs on the definitive party rental guide to Chiavari chairs.
