Wooden Table Tops & Veneers
When it comes to choosing the type of wood for your tops you will need to consider the wood grain pattern finish, its durability for the environment it will be used inand cost. A reclaimed redwood with a relatively rough grain or character oak with exposed knots may look very rustic and traditional but depending on what type of protective coating, may not be the most practical to clean. Beech has a much tighter grain and is relatively inexpensive however is not quite as stable as many other hardwoods such as Ash and Oak. Beech is still however one of the most commonly used solid wood tops. A veneer is a thin layer of wood bonded to a cheaper wooden core i.e. MDF. It can be up to half the cost of a solid wood alternative. A wide range of wood-veneers are available and can be laid at different angles creating interesting patterns or just straight. Wooden tops whether solid or veneered are commonly stained to a preferred wood colour then lacquered with a high-quality durable Polyurethane (PU) lacquer to protect the wood from wear and tear and for ease of cleaning.
Other Table Top Materials
HP Laminate and MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard) are used extensively in the manufacture of commercial and contract indoor furniture and there are literally hundreds of finishes available.
Werzalit and SM Franceare trade names for tops that have a composite wood and resin core witha melamine wrapping. They come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and finishes and are particularly popular foroutdoors as they are fully waterproof.They are practically impervious to mechanical, thermal and chemical influences, very hygienic, extremely easy to clean & maintain.
Metal Tops for indoor use include Copper, Brass, Zinc, Bronze and are also available as a metal effect high pressure laminate (HPL) with an MDF core.
Solid HPL usually 10 to 12mm thick and ideal for indoors or outdoors.
Aluminium with a composite wooden core often used outdoors.
Teak & Robina aredurable,long-lasting hardwoods which again are ideal for outdoor use.
Table Top Edge Profiles and Thickness
Tops are manufactured with many edge profile options, especially for solid wood and veneered tops.
Some of the most popular are, Square edge, Arrised, Pencil Round, Full Round/Bullnose, Incut/Lamb’s Tongue and Half Convex. The majority of Laminate and MFC tops edges are usually straight and often with a matching or contrasting ABS (plastic) edge.
In the main table tops are manufactured in thicknesses from 25mm to 50mm with some of the thicker tops produced at around 25mm with a drop-down edge to give the appearance of a much thicker top.
