Learn the Differences Between Lifetime Products Folding Tables

Who is Lifetime Products?

Lifetime Products is a manufacturer based in the United States in Clearfield, Utah. They have been in business since 1986. They first focused on building basketball systems for residential use, but soon moved in to blow-molded plastics. This expansion of operation has led to an explosion of folding table and chair products. Their first folding table product was released in 1998. Their folding table selection has only grown to fill both commercial and private needs.

What Table Products Do They Make

Folding table options that Lifetime Products makes include round folding tables, rectangular folding tables, folding picnic tables, swivel bench picnic tables, tv trays, and adjustable-height tables. These groupings of table options are also further broken down into professional, commercial, and light-duty table qualities. When looking at round folding tables from Lifetime Products, you will see both professional and commercial options in several different sizes. For the rectangular tables, you will see professional, commercial, and light-duty options. All other tables Lifetime Products makes are considered commercial in quality.

How Can I Tell The Difference Between Table Product Options

Most product descriptions for Lifetime folding tables will tell you if the table is professional, commercial, or light duty. If you do not see this in the description, you can refer to the length of the warranty offered for the table listing. Professional grade tables from Lifetime will come with a limited Lifetime warranty, commercial grade tables will come with a 10-year limited warranty, and light duty tables will come with a 2-year warranty. Where this does not hold true is with Lifetime Picnic Tables. These tables are considered commercial grade as they exceed ANSI/BIFMA standards just like the other commercial tables from Lifetime. If the listing does not state the quality of the table or the warranty length, the next way to determine what table you are viewing is to look at the weight capacities of the table. When comparing similarly-sized folding tables from Lifetime Products, professional grade tables will have the highest weight capacity (typically 2000-2500 lbs.), the commercial grade will have the next height weight capacity (typically 1500 to 2000 lbs.), and light-duty will have the lowest weight capacity (typically between 500 and 1000 lbs.).

Why Should I Choose 1 Folding Table Design Over Another Folding Table Design?

Choosing the correct folding table design is best done by considering your intended use and the abuse the table will have in that use. For casual, home use the light-duty design is typically more than sufficient to fulfill this need. For frequent home use to regular commercial use (most church and school needs fit this category), the commercial grade tables will probably be the best fit. For heavy-duty commercial use (industrial businesses and reception centers typically fit this category), the professional grade will likely be the best fit.
