Burgess Furniture launches new space-saving afold table, which has been chosen for the meeting spaces at Belfast’s new Grand Central Hotel…

Priding itself on offering the hospitality industry furniture which couples great designs and exceptional functionality to fit our customer’s needs, Burgess Furniture has launched a new folding table that makes light work of setting up functions and events.

Portable and lightweight, the new A-Fold table is quick to install and fold down thanks to its unique folding mechanism, that secures the legs flat against the table top for minimal storage space.

Available in different styles, such as classic white, contemporary white and timber, the AFold table is designed with user flexibility in mind. Individual tables can be linked together for business group working and modesty panels can be added or removed quickly for user comfort and discreet cable fixing.

The A-Fold table is available in rectangle or round shape and a comprehensive choice of sizes from 150 to 180cm diameter and 120 to 180cm in length.

“Setting up an open area into a dining room, meeting room or conference space can be time-consuming and difficult,” says Craig Kent, Production Director at Burgess Furniture. “The new A-Fold table is designed to make it easy and quick to adapt a room when hosting different types of events.

“The folding mechanism was very carefully designed by our team, to be smooth, safe and simple so that anyone can set the A-Fold table up. “It’s a very practical solution that’s also very stylish, each design was carefully created to ensure it complements existing décor for the professional, quality experience that guests expect.”

With its sleek look and practical design, the A-Fold table is featured in the newly opened five-star Grand Central Hotel Belfast. “The A-Fold was in the very early stages of production when we revealed its design to Hastings  Hotels,” said Ashley Taylor, General Manager at Burgess. “They were immediately impressed, not just by its practicality and how it can be quickly adjusted to suit different types of events, but with its level of quality  – perfect for Northern Ireland’s largest-ever and most luxurious hotel.”

The A-Fold table is the latest new product from innovative furniture maker Burgess, following on from the launch of its Smart Qube flexible hospitality furniture range and Junea chair collection earlier this year.
