Frequently Asked Questions

Can I adjust the bracing in the table?
The Basic and Rugged table kits have independent bracing that can be adjusted to any desired height. At standard table height, the location of the bracing will not dramatically affect the stability of the table. The Z-frame and Adjustable table supports cannot be adjusted vertically. The horizontal bar on the Basic, Rugged, and Adjustable Height desk kits can be moved forward or backward. This enables it to be brought forward to be used as a foot rest, or pushed back to be moved out of the way.
What size are the caster wheels?
The casters that are used for the caster footing options are 3" in diameter. 4" and 5" casters are also available. Contact our sales team to order a kit with larger casters.
What size pipe is used in the table kits?
Most of the kits use Size 7 Gator Tube with a 1.66 inch outer diameter. This pipe has a corrosion resistant finish and is suitable for outdoor use. The adjustable Height kit also uses Size 6 Gator Tube with a 1.32 inch outer diameter in its extension legs and bracing.
