These starter tables are generally of very poor construction and are not recommended for anything other than the job for which they were designed – namely holding several sheets of soggy wallpaper.
So, while a cheap, folding pasting table looks like a good buy on the surface, delve a little deeper, and you really do get what you pay for.
Displaying goods on flimsy pasting tables runs the risk of exposing the tables to weights which they were not originally meant to handle. This can cause instability and the middle of the table to sag. This, along with the constant wear and tear of being assembled and disassembled, will severely curtail their life expectancy. Tables like these are clearly not fit for this purpose and will offer only a very limited lifespan. While it’s true that cost-wise, they will be the cheaper option, they do not offer value for money in the longer term.
Whereas a Gopak folding table is an altogether different prospect – built to last a lifetime. Treated as an investment, it will provide a strong, sturdy base around which to build your business. And when it’s not being used for boot sales and market stalls, its good looks and versatility can be utilised around the house and in the garden.
Light in weight, and tried and tested universally, a Gopak folding table is sturdy, strong and offers good looks. So much so that, with its 5 year guarantee, unlike a cheaper pasting table, you will not want to hide it away.
