Getting it covered

27 April 2018

There are not too many occasions when you might say something actually looks great in lycra!  When it comes to tablecloths however, snug, sleek and stretchy….actually works.

Alloyfold have sold commercial grade blow molded tables for over 10 years. When customers started requesting table coverings, “low maintenance was a no brainer” says Gregg Hagen, Alloyfold’s International Sales Manager.  “We wanted to be able to provide a product that complimented our tables and benefited our Hire and Rental customers by being strong, low maintenance and wrinkle free so that no ironing is required”. Alloyfold say these lycra covers have proved to be popular, customers have loved pairing them with a variety of seating options and have been surprised at the results.

“It’s sometimes hard to visualise which combinations of chairs, covers and colours work.  It’s often about fashion and what is trending. White covers with black Bella chairs for example, are trending in the USA and actually look great together” says Gregg.  

There are plenty of options available when looking for covers.  The key things to look for are fit, strength and quality and have the following benefits:

Ease of use for event staff:
It’s important that the covers are the perfect fit for your table or chair making it easy for your staff to easily pop the covers on and off with ease and to save time in setup and pack down.  

Designed for longevity:
Covers with reinforced feet pockets are stronger and last longer and a quality, high grade spandex works best.  Their snug fit also keeps things safe for patrons, no loose hanging corners or edges to trip on or pull at.  The range of colours makes them adaptable and table toppers also provide opportunity for branding or brand recognition.

Hygiene and storage:
Lycra covers are also easier to clean than traditional linen coverings they require no ironing and are space saving for storage.  

A blank canvas to create a theme:
Lycra covers create an unassuming look and sleek lines meaning your blank canvas is easy to theme to whatever it is you are doing.  Add some flowers, sashes, hessian, table runners, en-trend plates and cutlery or lots of fresh greenery to create a whole new look every time.
