The first FoldTables are produced in 1998 and they are still in use at festivals. Some have had a new coating, while other were given new table- and bench tops.
A FoldTable is constructed in a way that i twill never be total loss. Each part can be ordered separately and is easy to change. No glue is used, all parts are screwed.
All timber is from managed European forests, no tropical hardwoods are used in FoldTables. The paints are water based.

Most metal parts are electro galvanised. Some are made of stainless steel. No maintenance.
The supporting slats are made from solid pine wood, painted on water base.
The no-maintenance base is moulded from a single piece of polyethylene. It can be recycled without problems.
