Our Popular Picnic Table Materials

Picnic tables are outdoor furniture must-haves for gatherings and events. And there are so many materials and different types of picnic tables available. From heavy-duty picnic tables to smaller models — it can be challenging to narrow down the best material for your outdoor space. Steel, stainless steel, wood, and recycled plastic are all popular choices for outdoor picnic tables for their durability, weather resistance, and good looks. All of these materials offer unique benefits, so carefully consider each one before making your decision.


Steel is a great material for outdoor picnic tables, offering excellent durability and strength. It is made to withstand harsh conditions and can sustain heavy use without looking tired, making it an ideal choice for schools and parks.

Used on its own or combined with timber or plastic, there are plenty of options to choose from and hundreds of colour combinations. Our steel picnic tables are as heavy-duty as they come and are available as picnic tables with benches or seats with added back support, there is something suitable for any outdoor space. Our heavy-duty steel picnic tables are easy to install using our ground anchoring system and maintain due to their architectural grade paint finish. While they are relatively expensive compared to other materials on the market they provide the longest lifespan and the easiest recyclability at the end of life.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is another popular material for outdoor picnic tables. It offers all the benefits of regular steel, such as strength and durability, but with the bonus of being resistant to corrosion and degradation.

This makes it an excellent choice for picnic tables that will be used near constant wet or coastal environments. Stainless steel picnic tables are also easy to clean and maintain due to their “stainless” nature. The toughest graffiti can be cleaned off using strong chemical cleaners without worrying about damaging the picnic table. The ideal and convenient choice for high-traffic areas.


Wood is a traditional choice for outdoor picnic tables. Its natural aesthetic helps it blends well with any outdoor settings. We offer hardwood and softwood picnic tables with varying levels of durability. Our hardwood tables are combined with a steel framework and legs for superior strength to form a heavy-duty and long lasting outdoor picnic table.

One of the biggest advantages of wood picnic tables is that they are relatively easy to repair and refinish, softwood tables can be painted and stained to make them match your existing furniture or brand and can be repaired using readily obtainable pressure treated timber in the event of vandalism. Their low upkeep and upfront cost make them a good choice for those who want a budget table for their outdoor space.

Recycled Plastic

There are several benefits to using recycled plastic to make outdoor picnic tables. For one, using recycled plastic reduces the amount of waste in the environment and helps to conserve natural resources. That’s good news for eco-aware businesses that can use the sustainability of recycled plastic outdoor picnic tables as a marketing angle.

Not only that, but recycled plastic picnic tables are extremely durable and long lasting, requiring no maintenance over time. They are also resistant to damage from weather extremes, making them a more sustainable option compared to picnic tables made from other materials. Additionally, recycled plastic picnic tables are easy to clean and sanitise, so they are a great option for use in public spaces like parks and playgrounds.

Heavy Duty Picnic Table Maintenance

Here is a quick guide to picnic table maintenance for different types of picnic tables:

  • Wood picnic tables: Wood picnic tables are a classic outdoor furnishing, perfect for providing a spot to gather with friends and family. Whether you prefer heavy-duty, traditional, or contemporary picnic tables, they all require regular check over and occasional sand down in the event of damage to the surface to stay splinter free and functional. They also benefit from a occasional clean with mild soapy water. On softwood outdoor picnic tables occasionally check for signs of rot, decay or splintering that could lead to breakage. By being mindful of the upkeep of your outdoor picnic table, you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.
  • Steel picnic tables: Steel outdoor picnic tables are the perfect choice for any outdoor area that needs durable and heavy-duty furniture. They require very little maintenance; however, from time to time, you will need to clean the surface of dirt or grime. Regularly, these outdoor picnic tables should be checked for signs of damage to the paintwork and patch with colour matching paint to prevent rusting or corrosion, components can be replaced or repaired if they are damaged. Our outdoor steel picnic table with bench options comes in a variety of styles, and they are a fantastic choice for outdoor areas where space is tight.
  • Stainless steel picnic tables: Stainless steel outdoor picnic tables are an ideal option for those seeking high levels of durability, as they have excellent rust and corrosion resistance with no maintenance. This means they are especially useful in coastal spots. Not only do these heavy-duty picnic tables last longer than many other outdoor furnishings, but they are also relatively easy to care for. Most stainless steel picnic tables with bench seating can be cleaned with a bit of soap and water now and again, or just get the hose out and rinse them down. Keep an eye out for any signs of damage and repair as needed, and your outdoor furniture will stay looking great for years to come.
  • Recycled plastic picnic tables: Recycled plastic picnic tables are extremely durable and require very little maintenance. They are resistant to all the most extreme weather. Just about the only maintenance you’ll have to carry out with a recycled plastic outdoor picnic table is the occasional wipe (or hose) down. Our recycled plastic picnic tables even come with a 25-year guarantee, so you know they’re going to last.
