All Boos Commercial Work Table Tops Are Stainless Steel
The stainless steel tops on these commercial tables come in gauges of 14, 16 and 18. Keep in mind that as gauge decreases the thickness of the steel actually increases, as do table weight and price. So you have a range of options, depending on your intended use and your budget. Another choice you must make is whether you want a flat table top or one with a rear riser. Of course, risers come in handy by helping keep whatever it is you’re working with on the work surface and off the floor. An important feature worthy of mention is that all Boos steel work tops are sound-deadened. In other words, they’re engineered to minimize noise by converting vibrational energy into heat that is then dissipated into the air.
Select Either Galvanized or Stainless Steel for Your Table’s Base & Shelves
“Base” refers to the table’s legs and bracing (the steel cross bars that connect the legs of the table, adding structural rigidity). You have the option of selecting either galvanized or stainless steel for these components. Here’s a quick primer to help you decide. Galvanized steel is protected by a thin surface layer of zinc. Over time, the zinc coating will wear away, so scratches in galvanized steel can lead to localized rust. In contrast, stainless steel is protected by chromium dispersed throughout the steel, not just on its surface. So stainless steel will not rust, regardless of how deeply it’s scratched. As you might know or can imagine, stainless steel is more expensive than is galvanized steel.
NSF-Certification Means These Work Tables Are Approved for Use Throughout the Food Service Industry
The NSF seal signifies that through product testing, material analysis and plant inspections, these stainless steel-top tables have been certified to be in compliance with industry standards and are therefore approved for use in locations where sanitary standards are especially high, such as in restaurants, delis, bakeries and food processing facilities.
Boos Keeps Worker Safety Top-of-Mind in Designing All Its Products
That’s why they devised what they call the Stallion Safety Edge. Essentially Boos engineers eliminated sharp edges at dangerous angles that could otherwise cause injuries when workers reach under a table to retrieve or store materials. Instead, the worker’s arm will contact a flat surface that’s contoured downward at a 45-degree angle.
