Felton Outdoor Picnic Tables - All you need to know

Outdoor picnic tables – all you need to know

Outdoor picnics in the backyard, local park or beach or camping ground are at the heart of every Aussie’s weekend or holiday gathering. The best modern outdoor picnic tables are durable, safe, low maintenance and able to withstand exposure to Australia’s tough weather conditions. Let’s take a look into how Felton’s range of high quality, Australian made commercial wooden picnic tables, recycled plastic picnic tables and aluminium picnic tables tick all the boxes for the perfect outdoor picnic table:

Recycled plastic picnic tables

Recycled plastic used in commercial outdoor picnic tables is created from high density polyethylene (HDPE) which protects against rotting, fading, mould generation or deterioration. These features make items created from recycled plastic safe and long-lasting for everyday use and hence are perfect for use in outdoor picnic tables. Recycled plastic as a composite is an eco-friendly choice for outdoor furniture and prevents wasted plastic entering landfill, hence acting as a smart environmentally friendly solution to plastic wastage.

Aluminium picnic tables

Aluminium is a lightweight, strong and extremely durable material and is perfect for outdoor picnic tables use as it is rust-proof and can be moved around easily yet still withstands harsh windy weather. Unlike other outdoor furniture materials, Aluminium does not need regular oil or protective coating applications, but rather can be maintained simply with soap and a quick hose down. Additionally, aluminium is a sterile, hygienic material and does not harbour bacteria growth, making it okay to drop food during a picnic without any adverse effects!

Felton’s aluminium outdoor picnic tables have a marine grade 15um (micron) clear anodised coating made of aluminium oxide which is the second hardest material following diamonds. This increases the hardness of the surface of the picnic tables significantly, making them highly resistant to vandalism or hard scratches. This finish lasts more than 50 years, adding to the great affordable value of outdoor furniture constructed from aluminium.

Anodised aluminium picnic tables are not vulnerable to high precipitation and humidity, making them perfect for coastal areas. In areas frequented with hotter conditions, anodised aluminium outdoor picnic tables are ideal as their light colour allows for the reflection of heat and maintenance of an even temperature, allowing them to cool down quicker than other outdoor furniture materials. In addition, compared to other natural materials and synthetics used for outdoor furniture, aluminium is resistant to damage from UV rays of the harsh Australian sun, making it one of the best materials picnic tables.

Wooden picnic tables

With extreme and harsh weather conditions prevalent across Australia, wooden picnic tables require the natural strength and durability of Structural Hardwood. Felton Industries uses local 50mm thick Australian Blackbutt Hardwoods which is known for being one of the hardest, high quality timbers in the world. Blackbutt Hardwood has an even texture and is naturally resistant to fire and insect attack as well as fungal activity and decay. These sturdy, durable qualities make Felton’s wooden outdoor picnics tables perfect in standing the test of time.

Felton’s commercial wooden picnic tables are made from quality Australian Blackbutt timber. They are manufactured to outlast and outperform other timber, are UV stabilised and washable.
