Its design is certainly a fundamental aspect to bear in mind, however, many other considerations need to be made. First and foremost, an outdoor table must be sturdy, functional, able to accommodate many people, made of materials that can withstand all weather conditions, and long-lasting in both aesthetic and technical terms.
A large number of seats at the table is ensured thanks to its extensions, with an opening mechanism that is one of the fundamental factors to consider when making your choice. The best extension technology is certainly the “leg bridge' mechanism, which allows the structure to slide, always keeping the legs at the ends of the table. In this way, any unpleasant inconvenience due to obstructing supports can be avoided. This is the patented mechanism for RIO (design Raffaello Galiotto), a slatted table also designed with a perfect fixing system for its extensions: once extended, RIO is a long fixed table without any imperfections or encumbrance.
Rio can easily be disassembled for winter storage but can remain exposed to the weather without any problems or need for particular maintenance. It can also be made with non-toxic, antistatic, and 100% recyclable material.
