We introduced our NES Reliable Plastic Folding Tables in Toronto more than 6 years ago and the response we have been getting from our customers has been truly amazing. While we have always known our tables are of substantially better quality than you will find with Canadian Tire folding tables or Walmart folding tables, we have never really done a good job of communicating this to our customers.
I realized that we needed to do a better job explaining why our tables are better than those you'd get at a big box store when I received a call from a prospective customer asking for some detailed information about our 3ft square plastic folding card tables. This gentleman insisted that the legs for our 3ft square plastic folding card table should NOT have legs that fold in pairs. He said he had purchased a Canadian Tire Folding Card table that had legs that fold in pairs and he said "the table was crap." Knowing that our NES Reliable Plastic folding tables were not the same 'crappy' quality as you might find at Canadian Tire, I proceeded to try to explain over the phone just how great our folding card table is. Needless to say, this gentleman never bought and I decided we had to do a better job of showing the strength and capabilities of our 3ft Square Folding Card tables. We did this when I tried to break our 3ft Square Folding card table by loading it with more than 1,100lbs of salt on top of the table.
We have done this and other stress tests to show what it takes to break our plastic folding tables. In each of the tests that we have done, we have never indicated what the weight rating was for the tables. When we realised this, we decided it was time we put together a list of the weight ratings that we have for all of our plastic folding tables.
|Table Type||Weight Rating|
(Evenly Distributed across the Table)
|Stress Test Video|
|Tall Folding Plastic Cocktail Table||300lbs||Over 700 lbs|
|36 inch Plastic Folding Card Table||500lbs||Over 1100 lbs|
|48 inch Round Plastic Folding Table||700lbs|
|60 inch Round Plastic Folding Table||1000lbs|
|71 inch Round Plastic Folding Table||700lbs|
|5ft Rectangular Plastic Folding Banquet Table||1000lbs|
|6ft Rectangular Plastic Folding Banquet Table||1000lbs||Over 2500lbs|
|8ft Rectangular Plastic Folding Banquet Table||800lbs||Over 1800lbs|
We believe the capabilities of our NES Reliable line of plastic folding tables are comparable to the commercial quality of Lifetime folding tables and better than Costco folding tables but have not done any of our own in-house tests yet. Stay tuned over the coming weeks and months as we start to do some stress tests on Lifetime folding tables, Costco folding tables, and of course Canadian Tire and Walmart folding tables.
All of the plastic folding tables we have listed above are currently available and in stock in large quantities in both our Toronto and Vancouver warehouses. If you have any questions about the strength of our tables or are interested in a quote, please don't hesitate to contact us.
