It’s so easy to become swept up in life. To become so enamored with things like work, running a home, raising children and simply living day to day that you forget to truly unwind with family. It can be nice to free yourself from technology; phones, laptops, iPads and spend some real time enjoying the sunshine with your family. Not all gardens are big enough to have a Summerhouse or Log Cabin in but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on all the fun. Our Heavy Duty Picnic Table combines a classic look with solid stability, a central base for your family fun.

The table, which has an oak like finish thanks to the additive we add during Pressure Treatment, has a neutral finish which makes it ideal for any design or theme you have in your garden. The timber, which is made from measured timber rather than offcuts, sit flush together and provide a level platform for you to dine with your family, rest after a long day, work on your arts and crafts or DIY garden projects you find on our pinterest page or any other activities.

Picnic Tables can be a nightmare for wheelchair users, people with mobility issues or new mothers battling with a pram. The rigid structure and full length timber panels can make accessibility a challenge, often people find themselves sitting awkwardly at the end of the table trying desperately to join in the conversation. Simple things like eating and drinking become difficult as wheelchair users have to stretch awkwardly to get anything.  We have put a twist on the modern Picnic Table design that allows people with mobility problems to feel more included and for new mums to keep their children close at hand.

By opting for a Picnic Table with single or double wheelchair access all members of your family can join in the fun without anyone feeling ostracised. Higher than a conventional picnic table, our structures are 5’ 2” deep which is perfect for wheelchair users to sit comfortably without bumping or scraping their legs and are 7’ 6” wide – ideal for holding the vast arrays of plates, dishes and glasses that can quickly amass when throwing a family party.

As the Picnic Table is exposed to a variety of elements over the year; wind, rain, sun and snow, all of which can affect the quality of wood if not protected properly. That’s why our Pressure Treatment offers a 10 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay to increase the longevity of your Picnic Table. This treatment, in addition with the high quality timber it’s made with, ensures a Picnic Table that will bring you and your family fun for years to come.

To ensure the very best quality, we only use slow-grown White Spruce Timber, which is harvested in cold climates to ensure solid, dense log rings. This gives the wood superior strength and longevity, and also a much more consistent colour than the likes of Pine.

 

Despite the care we take in selecting the very best Timber available, it’s not like predictable brick or cold steel, this natural material has characteristics and quirks unique to every log.

 

Because our timber logs once fed water and nutrients back and forth from its roots to its leaves, its very nature is to be porous and swell up when it gets wet. Any wooden product will do this throughout its life, but there are a few things you can do to help limit this movement.

 

These include:

1. A great design!

  • Don’t worry, we’ve got this one covered. We’re experts when it comes to all things timber, so we have designed our products from the ground up with its natural properties in mind.

2. Water Repellent Treatment.

  • How you customise and decorate your product is up to you, however we would recommend that you use an appropriate water repellent treatment. This really helps minimise the amount of moisture that the timber can absorb. Therefore minimising the risk of any major movement.
  • (Please note: water repellent treatment is not the same as pressure treatment, which protects against rot and insect infestation, and which we guarantee for 10 Years!)

3. Ventilation.

  • Keeping your timber building ventilated is no less important than keeping your house well ventilated. This is especially true if you plan to cover up your floorboards with something (double check with an expert, that the material is suitable to do so), as moisture can become trapped between layers of non-breathable materials and build-up, leading to floors becoming rotten.

4. Regular Seasonal Maintenance.

  • Whether you opt to build your product yourself, or have us do it for you, don’t be afraid to tighten the odd bolt here and there. Your product is a life improving investment, so it’s only right to give it some love and care from time to time. Make sure that it’s properly treated before the rainy months, and you make adjustments to doors and window frames, when needed.

However, in most cases, these imperfections will not impact the integrity or function of your timber product, and/or can easily be rectified.
