Aside from good food, great service and nice location, furniture design and comfort go along with the whole experience of a customer in a restaurant.
And personally, I find it comforting and more enjoyable to eat, if the restaurant furniture are well designed and stable.
However, it may not be a surprised if we, Filipinos, do not just mind wobbling and shaky tables during our food trip.
More often than not, many customers, particularly Filipinos, just let the wobbling go. However, this may not always mean that it is just okay. Amidst the resilience of many customers, there is also what we call “not forgetting” the horrible wobbly experience.
Mind you, the restaurant industry has been haunted by the simple yet very rampant problem of wobbly tables.
Just imagine having a wobbly table in a fine dining restaurant on a first time together with a date? Wouldn’t that irritate you as a customer? Wouldn’t that hurt the business of a restaurant owner?
Good thing, I came across this efficient technology to “level the playing” field for restaurant owners. It is called FLAT Technology.
This Australian product is available in the Philippines since 2012 through its exclusive distributor in the Philippines – Living Space Home Furnishings.
Flat Technologies Solution to Wobbly Tables
Flat Technologies is a simple yet innovative idea that solves wobbly tables by modification of the table’s base.
Once applied, Flat hydraulic technology finds level even on uneven surface, once pressed down. The hydraulic PAD (Patented Actuator Device) technology at the base of the table moves to level.
Cutting Edge Leveling & Stabilization
Each point of contact with the ground has its own hydraulic cylinder fitted within the leg, and all the cylinders are interconnected with fluid hoses. This device is referred to as the PAD (Patented Actuator Device).
When the first leg makes contact with the ground, the fluid in that cylinder is forced out through the hoses and into the other legs. The smart valves inside then lock until the table moves position again.
This technology not only eradicates the wobbly table but also allows users of FLAT® table bases to align 2 or more table tops perfectly and serve customers hassle free.
FLAT is an Australian product that provides the no. 1 solution to wobbly tables. In 2012, Living Space Home Furnishings became the first and only distributor of FLAT in the Philippines. The technology has also been recognized with as “Engineering Excellence Award” by the Engineers Australia (Sydney division).
In the country, Flat Technologies is being used by the following establishments:
- Mixin’ Bowl in SM North EDSA,
- newly opened Kitchitora in Glorietta 5
- Tokyo Bubble Tea in Katipunan
- Chef Robert in Banawe
- Mann Hann in Robinsons Magnolia
