Celebrating 65 years of excellence
Gopak's folding tables can be found in nearly every primary and secondary school, church and village hall in the UK
British manufacturer Gopak, known mainly for their range of lightweight folding tables with their twin leg design, seen by many as a modern day icon, knows a thing or two about furniture design and suitability for education. Celebrating the company’s 65th anniversary during 2019, Gopak continues to make folding tables that can be found in nearly every primary and secondary school, church and village hall in the UK.
You would expect Gopak products to have saturated the market, but with tables coming to the end of their life (some 40 years later) customers who recognise that these products provide exceptional value for money, by providing such long service and come back for more.
But did you know Gopak don’t only make the UK’s favourite folding table? Expanding their product range, Gopak’s portfolio now includes a folding and modular staging system. With lightweight aluminium telescopic risers and lightweight decks, the staging is aptly named Ultralight.
The stage decks can be supplied in a great assortment of sizes and shapes to enable you to configure the stage to your exact requirement for each performance or event. Ultralight is the only stage made in the UK to be accredited to both TUV and GS for load bearing, stability, design and structure under DIN 1521:2-015-09 and with its 180kg point load bearing and 1000kg m2 even load distribution, it will never let you down.
Gopak’s service is second to none with a loyal and dedicated team who will go out of their way to ensure your purchase is seamless
Back to tables, the Enviro range comes in a myriad of colours with contrasting or matching ABS edges, six heights to suit all age groups and an endless selection of top shapes. One particular favourite with pre-school and primary school pupils is the Daisy table (pictured above) matched here with smart plastic polymer stacking chairs, also available from Gopak.
The Enviro range is also suited for work space and collaborative areas both inside and out with the new Link tables, Workspace tables and outdoor tables and benches.
There can be no doubt that the world of educational furniture has changed for the better over recent years. With thankfully more focus on quality and ergonomics, the furniture now found in the classroom in more progressive centres of learning provide children with the best start in life which should lead to a reduction in health issues in adulthood.
Gopak’s service is second to none with a loyal and dedicated team who will go out of their way to ensure your purchase is seamless. From looking back at previous orders to match existing, to offering advice and assistance and in some instances sampling items before you commit to ordering. Site visits can be arranged and most of the Gopak range is available as a BIM object to enable you to drop tables, benches and staging into your project plans.
With a swift turnaround from order, the slick production process enables items with thousands of options to have a short lead time and when Gopak says they are going to deliver, they deliver. In 2018 an astounding 99.87% of all orders were shipped on time.
Holding the accolade of Feefo Gold Trusted Status for the last three years endorses the Gopak team’s hard work and commitment to ensuring every order, no matter how large or small is treated with the respect it deserves. Investors in People, ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 accredited offers the end user the reassurance that they are buying the best, from the best.
