NSF Approval Is Required for Tables Used in the Food Service Industry
If you’re going to use your steel table in a foodservice establishment, be sure it meets standards of the NSF (formerly the National Sanitation Foundation). NSF has developed industry testing and certification standards for services affecting public health and safety. NSF certification signifies that the product carrying it complies with established or consensus industry standards.
John Boos & Co. makes NSF steel tables with hard maple wood tops (bakers’ tables) that are especially popular in commercial bakeries, and with stainless steel or high-density polyethylene (poly-top tables) that are staples in commercial kitchens and food processing plants.
Boos Commercial Work Tables Are Equally Good for Industrial Use
Since steel is exceptionally strong, able to support hundreds of pounds of equipment or supplies, Boos steel work tables are employed in manufacturing plants and job shops nationwide. Add wheels to convert your steel table into a portable mechanic’s cart or a test and analysis cart for quality assurance personnel. You can store equipment and supplies beneath the table top in an open-front steel table, or behind sliding or hinged doors in a closed cabinet. Sliding drawers are a great place to store and lock expensive tools or electronic test equipment.
No matter what your application, you’ll find a Boos stainless steel table that meets your needs.
Boos NSF steel tables come with frames or base cabinets made of either stainless or galvanized steel. To make stainless steel, chromium is added to regular carbon steel to form a protective layer of chromium oxide. In the making of galvanized steel, carbon steel is dipped in molten zinc to form a protective layer of zinc oxide. Both protective layers help prevent corrosion, however the zinc oxide coating on galvanized steel will wear away over time. Both types of steel – stainless and galvanized – come in different gauges, or thicknesses. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the metal. So a 16-gauge steel table will be heavier and sturdier than an 18-gauge table, for example.
These work tables are only one segment of Boos' full line of commercial products.
