Temporary Self-Standing Outdoor Fencing for Sidewalk and Outdoor Dining

You need a temporary, self-supportive fence for your restaurant. You have a restaurant and you want to expand your outdoor dining venue. It gives you more tables, more seats, and more opportunity to grow your restaurant business. Additionally, having patrons dine outside allows you to showcase your food, beers, and other delectables, and acts as free advertising for your business.

The only thing standing between you and the great opportunity is your local government, be it the city, town, or other municipality, where your restaurant is located.Outdoor Moveable Fence Pix

Chances are, if you are serving alcohol outdoors, be it in a sidewalk dining area, or next to another parking lot or pedestrian area, you will need a temporary fence to section off your space from the public space. Not a bad idea. The issue is that the fencing needs to look good, have a specified height, and other qualifiers that bureaucrats need to sign off on after you file your plans and pay a usurious fee.

Gray Faux Teak Restaurant Furniture Options

Wood look and faux teak looks sharp and is easy to maintain. The faux teak material is durable and has a longer life than natural teak, which grays and stains over time if not constantly oiled and maintained. For these reasons, faux teak offers greater value for the restaurant and hotel owners with an eye on their budget.

Faux teak is synthetic teak, or a resin based (plastic) material that is fade and mildew resistant. The faux teak slats for a table top or a chair seat or seat back are simply made out of ‘fancy plastic’ and held together with an aluminum metal frame.

BFM Seaside Gray Teak chair

Faux teak, wood look teak, plastic teakwood and synthetic teak are all basically the same products. Depending on the manufacturer the furniture varies in style, quality and long-term durability. Because the synthetic teak is so popular you can probably find it at several locations close to where you live: restaurants, bars, bistros, cafes, hotels, poolside, country clubs, condominium and homeowner associations…and the outdoor dining and venue list goes on.

Purchasing brown faux teak will surely add some pop and appeal to your restaurant, but at this point it is now the show stopper furniture line that it once was. For those seeking quality outdoor commercial restaurant furniture that will be a wow factor at their venue for some time is the gray faux teak. Gray faux or gray synthetic teak is the same teakwood look plastic slats with an aluminum gay. Many many design trends, the novelty is in the color variation.

ADA Restaurant Tables for Outdoor Use & Accessibility in California and elsewhere

Recently, many states like California have mandated that restaurants and other establishments make provisions for seating in dining rooms for those in wheelchairs. The spirit of these laws provides accessibility for those with limited mobility or disabilities, much like that of entrance ramps, tactile signs and other ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines.

Having ADA accessible tables not only enables a restaurant to comply with laws, but it also makes sense to provide greater access and comfort to all.

ADA Accessibility for Indoor and Outdoor Restaurant Dining

A typical cafe table with a center table base is not ADA accessible. An ADA accessible table should have legs at the table’s four corners, provide 30” clear space under the table and 36” of uninterrupted space across the side of the table. Typical sizes for ADA tables that are commonly manufactured are 36” x 36”, 30” x 48” or 32” x 48”.
