Lightweight folding tables for conference and banqueting
Forbes Group Alu-Lite® tables have become highly popular for their combination of strength and reduced weight. Their lightweight yet robust construction and locking leg mechanism make them a practical choice. Weighing half the weight of a conventional folding banquet table, these tables have been designed to withstand the requirements of everyday use in a busy hotel or conference centre.
Available in rectangular, round and half round sizes, Alu-Lite® tables conform to the recommended EU guidelines for lifting weights within the work place. Both set-up and breakdown of rooms is quicker than with conventional tables, with attendant implications for efficiency and cost-savings.
Following in the footsteps of the Alu-Lite® range, the Seminar table offers lightweight, practical and attractive meeting room tables. The tables’ 38mm thick tops are finished in laminate for added durability and are available in stylish wood grain colours. Available in rectangular and half round sizes Seminar tables are ideal for hotels and conference centres.
Our recent customers include Intercontinental Hotel Tahiti, Club Med Hotels France, Hotel Football Manchester and DoubleTree by Hilton hotel group.
Buffet-Rite – removable table top for buffet set ups
The sleek table top that fits over buffet tables to provide a heat-proof serving surface when required. Its laminate surface shrugs off spillages and is wipe clean, providing cost-savings in laundry and giving ordinary tables multiple uses.
When the Buffet-Rite top is used in conjunction with Forbes’ stretch Silcra cover, it offers a contemporary buffet or break-out service, indoors or outside.
Forbes Group has recently supplied the multi-award-winning Novotel London West with 70 of its Buffet-Rite tops and 100 black Silcra stretch table covers.
The F&B manager at Accor’s flagship venue explained that his order was based on three criteria:
- The practicality: the Buffet-Rite lid wipes clean both during and after food & drink presentation
- The aesthetics: the Buffet-Rite used over the sculpted Silcra cover “looks slicker” making an eye-catching statement in any room.
- The economics: wiping clean the temporary table top will save the laundry costs of the existing cloths
The Buffet-Rite table tops are available in matt Silver, Black or Italian Marble finishes.
Hotel dining table covers: High standards meet practicality
Simple-Fit is a dining table skirting that requires no clips or velcro tape for attachment, so offering a quick and effective way to dress tables elegantly with minimal fuss. This innovative skirting always stays centred and levelled, saving you time and increasing your staff efficiency when setting up for important functions.
Simple-Fit has been a choice for many customers who value practicality, efficiency and ease of use, yet demand elegance. Recent projects include The Ritz and Connaught Hotel, London.
Restaurant skirting from Forbes Group combines a padded table protector with pleated table skirting. It offers a superior dining experience with a floor length table covering which is comfortable to sit at thanks to the overlapping panels of material. The table protector resists water and is wipe-clean, which helps reduce laundry costs as only the linen top cloths need washing. Customers have the freedom to remove skirting as required, to change colours seasonally or with décor.
Stretch Silcra table and chair covers
Forbes Group’s innovative Silcra stretch covers bring an instant update to buffet or registration tables.
Made-to-measure covers stretch over the table and are fixed under the legs, creating a contemporary, sculpted silhouette.
Silcra covers are designed to fit any table size (round or rectangular), come in a range of colours and are all machine washable. They are also available for cocktail tables and banquet chairs.
Order your Silcra cover in Premier fabric and we can personalise it with any graphic or your company logo for a particularly sleek finish.
