Catering table linens made to measure and in all styles

Washable table coverings offer many significant benefits to the catering industry.  They can be ordered as tablecloths, foil or coated cotton, offering a very low-cost solution to table protection while providing attractive decoration.

Washable table coverings are budget-friendly, easy to clean and prevent table tops coming into contact with drinks such as coffee and red wine that can form stains.  Washable table coverings can be supplied to commercial and residential customers as ready-made tablecloths as well as in rolls.  Coverings in any size and for any type of table are available.

Washable table coverings for use in dining areas

In outdoor dining areas, such as beer gardens or café terraces, washable table coverings are an essential.  In addition to the many possible types of contamination by food and drinks, they are exposed to the elements, such as rain and sunshine, and to dust.

Washable catering tablecloths come in all shapes and sizes to suit all designs of table; they are easy to clean and thus save time. Other advantages are:

  • A wide variety of patterns and colours to suit any décor
  • Easy to include company specific logos and markings
  • Inexpensive to purchase
  • Very low maintenance, with no washing or ironing required
  • Easily adaptable to every shape and size of table

Sometimes, wooden tables are used without coverings in beer gardens.  The supposedly rustic impression that this is intended to give is not as customer-friendly as covering them with washable table cloths.  These not only look inviting and add a more upmarket feel, they prevent the dirt, damage and cigarette burns that are difficult to remove from wooden tables by protecting the wood with inexpensive, washable tablecloth that is easily replaced.

High quality catering table linen made from PVC and oilcloth

Apart from their use in beer gardens and other outdoor areas, washable table coverings are ideal for indoor areas such as restaurants, cafes and ice-cream shops.   The cost advantages are obvious and while colourful washable table linen has always been popular, designs that are more understated and elegant have become available in the last few years.

As the edges of wax cloth and PVC do not fray there is no requirement for any sewing.  Round or oval tables are not a problem as there are various special sizes of coverings in this shape.  In addition to protecting the table top, washable coverings also act as shock absorbers, which means that guests, especially families with children, can feel far more relaxed as they do not have to worry about the damage of knocking over a glass.   More and more restaurants are using washable table coverings in indoor outlets alongside traditional table and hotel linens.
