Lunch Tables for Schools: FAQs


How Do I Choose the Right School Cafeteria Furniture Form Factor?

Choosing the right cafeteria furniture requires you to consider the space that you have where the form factor is concerned. Remember, no one knows your space more than you do. However, we can help you to understand how to select the best benches. Tables are along the same line.

School cafeterias with a lot of space can go for designs that have a larger footprint while those that are more restrained may need to choose models that cover less space.

Remember as well that many of the leading manufacturers have created convertible tables and folding tables that you can use in their normal form when the students need the break room, after which you can collapse them when they're no longer needed.

What Are Lunchroom Tables Typically Made of?

Oftentimes a single material, such as wood, makes up a school bench. Tables tend to be a bit of a different story being comprised of a host of different materials. The typical construction is a metal frame with wood where seating is concerned, and the table will be some kind of wood tabletop.

This could be MDF wood or some kind of particle board. However, many manufacturers of school cafeteria furniture will opt for a plastic covering to offer protection to the wood and to give the students a more welcoming surface to use.

What Advantages Come with Choosing Joint Seating Vs Separated Seating for School Cafeteria Tables?

If your school cafeteria tables have joint seating, you don't necessarily need to think about placement as you would with separate chairs or stool seating. Additionally, they tend to be position optimized, which means that they take up less space than their separated counterparts.

Note however that if you're using mobile cafeteria tables in your school cafeteria or you want more control over the layout of the furniture, then perhaps you may find that separated seating is the way for you to go.

When Would Mobile Cafeteria Tables Be Useful?

Having mobile cafeteria tables in your school cafeteria tends to be useful if it's a multi-function room and you need them to be out when being used and collapsed when they're not in use.

Additionally, if you find yourself needing to reposition lunch tables often and you don't want to deal with the heavy lifting aspect of things, then they're also a great option in such a context.

Finally, if you find it difficult to get around your cafeteria tables for cleaning purposes, then this could be the right furniture for you.

What if I Need Folding Cafeteria Tables That Blend in with My Existing Layout?

The Shiffler catalog is conducive to meeting those kinds of needs across National Public Seating models and other top brands. For example, the 60" Round Folding Cafeteria Table, complete with four stools and two benches, offers a tremendous level of customization.

Even if you're not necessarily going for modifiable cafeteria tables, the spread that we have will blend in with different aesthetics, so you're bound to find something that works well for you.
