Investing in picnic tables for schools requires careful consideration of durability, safety, sustainability, and maintenance. Schools require outdoor seating solutions that not only offer a comfortable space for students but also contribute to their well-being by providing the opportunity to sit in outdoor environments surrounded by nature, all while ensuring durability over time. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the key factors to keep in mind when selecting picnic tables for educational environments, with a special focus on the superior features of British Recycled Plastic (BRP) picnic tables.
Choosing the best Picnic Tables For Schools
1. Seating Capacity and Safety
Our BRP school picnic tables can comfortably accommodate 6-8 kids, offering various options to suit your specific needs.
Safety is a top priority, and unlike traditional wooden picnic tables, BRP tables are designed without gaps. This ensures a safer option for schools, eliminating the risk of children’s fingers or hands getting caught in gaps.
2. Longevity and Material Durability
British Recycled Plastic picnic tables for schools boast an impressive lifespan of up to 75 years, outperforming traditional wooden tables that typically last only 5-8 years. Each product also comes with a 25-year guarantee, providing schools with a durable and long-lasting outdoor seating solution.
3. Weather Resistance
Our recycled plastic picnic tables for schools are designed with outdoor weathering in mind, capable of withstanding all elements. With a lifespan of up to 75 years, BRP picnic tables are built to endure and provide long-lasting outdoor seating solutions.
Unlike wooden picnic tables, BRP tables do not require any additional weatherproofing. The product and material are engineered and designed to be inherently weatherproof.
4. Low Maintenance
No sealing is required for British Recycled Plastic picnic tables. The product can be set up as delivered, eliminating the need for additional maintenance and ensuring a hassle-free experience. BRP picnic tables do not require staining or sealing. The material is inherently weatherproof, algae-proof, and graffiti-proof, making it a low-maintenance and durable choice for schools.
5. Protection and Safety Features
Unlike wooden picnic tables, BRP tables do not need any additional protection. The material is weatherproof, algae-proof, and graffiti-proof, ensuring long-lasting durability without the need for extra maintenance.
Unlike wooden picnic tables, whose legs can rot and require protection, BRP picnic tables for schools do not need any additional protection. The material is naturally weatherproof, algae-proof, and graffiti-proof, ensuring the longevity of the entire structure.
6. Considering Sustainability for the Future
British Recycled Plastic picnic tables stand out for their longevity, lasting up to 75 years. When considering sustainability, this has a profound impact on the carbon footprint compared to traditional wooden picnic tables, especially those shipped and made overseas.
The sustainability impact becomes evident when examining the product journey. Wooden picnic tables made overseas typically need replacing every 5 years. This constant cycle of production and transportation results in a significant carbon footprint, as these tables are shipped over vast distances, approximately 7779.19 km, every 5 years.
