This is a versatile system in two respects: first, because the table frame rails and legs are “only” screwed into place, which means that the tables can be assembled and disassembled very quickly in your store, at a trade show or in your atelier - with the further advantage that space-saving storage is possible. Secondly, and more importantly, the various frame rail lengths make possible the construction of tables with a variety of sizes – especially small or large ones, square and rectangular ones or eye-catching tables with unusual length and width ratios.
The components are made of steel and have a hardwearing, powder coated, matte-rough metallic surface. The table legs have a height of 730 mm or 430 mm so that when a tabletop with a width of 20 mm is attached, the total height will be the standard 750 mm or 450 mm.
Please note that a really low table can also serve as a bench. In this way, very functional combinations of bench and table can be put together – it should also be noted, however, they are only suitable for indoor use!
The frames, because of their subtle and unembellished appearance, can be combined with many different kinds of tabletops or materials. Really every type of panel, from black MDF to a ready-made tabletop with beech edging to birch plywood panels (coated or non-coated) can be selected. One can also screw on considerably thinner types of panels (e.g. 15 or 18 mm) they can be attached to the frame with the Dual-Lock Press Seal band because they will thereby be evenly grounded on all four frame rails along a wide area. This construction lends a great deal of stability and reduces any tendency of the tabletop to sag in the middle. When selecting a tabletop size, you must decide if it is to overlap the frame rails or be flush with them – this table frame provides you with both options!
The very special twist lock washers that are provided are to be used when screwing the corner connectors in place. The washers prevent the screws from loosening and in doing so contribute considerably to the stability of your table.
- The given length for the frame rails does not really refer to the actual length of the rail, but rather the approximate outer measurement of the table when assembled (the rail including the two table legs on the ends).
- Strictly speaking, the outer measurement of the table frame when it is assembled is actually10 mm less than the given measurement – for example, instead of 900 mm it will be 890 mm, whereby a tabletop with the dimension 900 x 1800 will overlap the frame rails by 5 mm all the way around.
Every frame rail has two or three vertically drilled holes (diameter 6 mm) where your panel or tabletop ( at least 18 mm ) can be screwed on – 12 screws for that job are included.
