One of our favourite pastimes is wandering around in new places and then stopping at a cafe to sit and watch the world go by over a cappuccino or latte. However, it never fails to amaze us at how many cafes still have wobbly tables. I mean, let’s face it, it’s pretty annoying when you’re trying to tuck into a slice of chocolate cake and the mere effort of using a fork to pick up a piece of cake causes the table to wobble and spill your drink. You’d think that cafe owners would get tired of their waiting staff having to concentrate their efforts on balancing customer tables.
The thing is, in this day and age paying customers shouldn’t have to put up with wobbly tables especially in big cities like Brisbane. The solution to wobbly tables is actually very easy and the answer lies in the design of a table base which is aptly called “FLAT technology”.
FLAT technology is an ingenious, worldwide, patented product which has won numerous awards for its innovative design, and what’s more it aligns tables on any surface instantly. Cool right?
So how does it work?
The system uses hydraulics to pump fluid through a series of small pipes which are hidden away inside the table base. The FLAT Technology PAD (Patented Actuator Device) reacts instantly, automatically adjusting the table feet to stabilise the table on any surface, and then locking them into position.
This clever system means that your tables remain stable whether they’re on gravel, flagstones, grass, or concrete. Each time the table is moved, the feet automatically adjust and lock again into position. It really is that simple.
What’s more, this clever device means that you can position tables together, such as you might have to do to make a large table for a party of people, and the technology aligns all of the table tops together simply and quickly.
Quite simply your customers will thank you for being able to sit, eat, and drink without having a waiter fussing around trying to level the table with bar mats. It will also save you money on not having to refill drinks which have spilt because of the wobbly table or pay a dry cleaning bill for the customer who got a bowl of soup in her lap! It also frees up your waiting staff so that they can concentrate on serving your customers and upholding great customer service. Finally, it makes setting up your cafe or restaurant in the mornings that much quicker and simpler. That’s why you should bother.
