Restaurant Furniture: Gyrobases Test
Taking it to the Streets at Cicerello’s
We know Gyro table bases perform because they have been design perfected over the past 13 years, and are rigorously factory tested to double the required Australian restaurant furniture specifications; now that’s tough!
But we wanted to test Gyro table bases at work in high traffic cafes and restaurants that currently do not use our hospitality furniture. We were also interested in hearing the unbiased feedback from management and staff on how our fold-flat self-stabilizing table bases performed in their restaurant over the peak holiday season.
The first location we used to test Gyro on performance was the iconic harbour-side seafood restaurant, Cicerellos at Fremantle. We supplied the restaurant with five 700 x 700 square top, fold-flat self-stabilizing tables at the beginning of December 2015 and checked back with Cicerello’s at the end of January 2016 to see how Gyro stood up to the high volume of use over the busy Summer period.
The tables had stood up extremely well with no signs of any wear and tear. Nick Unmack, partner at Cicerellos, commented, “The Gyro tables are a great practical robust design that frees up floor space for cleaning, for functions, and generally allows easier movement of tables with minimal disruption to guests.
You also have to keep in mind OHS nowadays and the fact that most conventional tables are circa 15kg. Gyro provides an ergonomically designed mode of lifting and movement that mitigates any back or leg complaints by staff”.
However, Nick wants to, “put the tables through the wringer for another 2 months” and would like to trial our 800 x 800 mm table tops as these are more suited to Cicerello’s for serving their “Fish and Chips in Newspaper”. We’ll be back at Cicerello’s later in the week to deliver these tables for Nick so he can continue his own rigorous testing!
We’ll update you on how these tables fared in a few months time! Meanwhile, visit our website for more information on Gyro Bases.
