The Extendable Aluminium Garden Table From Above

The Closed Version - Seats 6 People

The Rhodes outdoor metal  rectangular table weighs just 59kg, so for such a large extending garden table is it is relatively light yet robust as it is manufactured from aluminium.

59 kg it is incredibly light for this kind of metal garden furniture and it's very easy for 2 people to move the rectangular aluminium outdoor table around.

A major advantage of using aluminium to produce metal garden furniture is that it does not rust  ever!

Virgin Aluminium - we only use virgin or pure aluminium because reclaimed aluminium contains impurities that can cause cracking and corrosion. 
Reclaimed aluminium is also very difficult to weld correctly since inconsistent recycled aluminium will melt at varying temperatures making it almost impossible to decide at which temperature to weld. In contrast, the melting point of virgin aluminium is constant. Virgin aluminium outdoor furniture that is welded at a constant temperature will not fail.

In the pictures below you see how the butterfly leaf system works in order to extend your metal patio table.

Also at Outdoor Edge Garden Furniture all of our metal garden furniture is  powder coated with a matt finish called 'harvest'; the base colour is black which is highlighted with a very dark browny red wash, a similar colour to dark autumn leaves.

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings.
  1. Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).
  2. Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
  3. Powder coating over spray can be recycled and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% use of the coating.
  4. Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings.
  5. Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
  6. A wide range of specialty effects is easily accomplished which would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.

Nylon Feet – all of our metal garden furniture has adjustable nylon feet. This is essential because otherwise:

- unprotected metal legs would chip allowing the elements to attack the bare   aluminium;

- metal feet can cause scratching on paved or decked patio areas;

- rubber feet mark and wear quickly.
