Banqueting tables are used in a wide variety of events and are renowned for their durability and ease of use. There is a wide range of options to choose from when selecting a banqueting table. The options we offer have been used by halls, catering venues and hotels to name a few. A banqueting table can be used with us without a tablecloth in a non-formal environment and is one of the most popular types of furniture in the industry.
When looking for the correct shape banquet table there are many different options available, we will begin with the first option which is round. The round banquet table shape allows for more people to sit around at your function. This seating arrangement allows for a more intimate setting as the guests at your banquet will be looking at each other when eating and conversing. Many wedding halls prefer this type of folding table because it allows the venue to maximise capacity and increases the seating at the event.
This shape is a favourite for restaurants and for the hospitality industry in general. The square shaped banquet table is offers the most intimate setting as the smaller sizes give a face to face experience. The smaller sizes allow for two people as the table legs on the one side will not give you enough room to allow for a comfortable experience. As the sizes become larger and you move up to the 5ft or 6ft square you then have the ability to sit your guests around the entire perimeter of your banqueting trestle.
The most popular size used in catering and banqueting due to its ease of storage and the fact that it suits most venues. The rectangular shaped banquet table is the workhorse of the event furniture industry and it is the type of table you will see at almost any wedding, christening or banqueting hall. This shape is also ideal for hire companies that hire out the tables or chairs because it maximises the space that is used on the transport getting the furniture from the warehouse to the function hall.
The semicircle shape is usually used as a topper to round off the edge giving a more tapered look when it is fitted with a tablecloth. The half-moon shape is also used when a 6ft 7ft or 8ft is combined into 2 making a massive banqueting table that is more manageable to move and setup at a wedding or christening. This shape also allows you to create quite extravagant designs using a combination of the various table sizes that are available.
The option that is used at basically every banqueting hall in the UK is the wooden table top. The wooden top is the most versatile material used when manufacturing a banquet table, it is durable heavy duty and stands up to the rigors of daily use. When looking at this model from a price perspective it is the most economical solution as the price is well worth the investment. These banqueting table tops have visible rivets so it is important to understand that they should be used with tablecloths in formal occasions. This material style also comes with American wishbone folding legs that allow for heavy static weights to be held on the wooden top.
When your functions will be held in indoor and outdoor settings then the plastic banqueting tables are the ideal choice for these situations. Our plastic tables come with an industry grade blow moulded one piece and centre fold top. They also have grey powder coated folding legs that make for easy storage. The reason these banquet tables are ideal for our customers in the event industry is because of the ability to use this outdoors and indoors. The maximum static load of this range is lower than the wooden trestle tables however because they can be used in the rain they are a very versatile choice.
