MIG-Welded Steel Frame: MIG-welded steel frames are steel outdoor table frames welded using metal inert gas (MIG) welding techniques. Electrodes are used to melt the steel on conjoining pieces, combine them, and the steel solidifies forming a permanent bond.

Shapes are cut out from one edge of one piece, and matching shapes are cut into the corresponding edge, allowing the two wood pieces to combine like traditional puzzle pieces and not easily pull apart.

Powder-Coated Anchor Brackets: Powder-coated anchor brackets are mounting brackets, usually composed of steel or metal, finished with durable powder-coat paint, and used to mount outdoor tables to patio, deck, ground, or other surface.

Radius Edges: Radius edges are the edges of tabletops that have been smoothed and rounded to remove angles and enhance safe use and appearance.

Steel Reinforcement: Steel reinforcement refers to the steel bars in 100% recycled plastic plank outdoor tables, with bars adding strength and support to the structure and frame.

Teak Wood Care Products: Teak wood care products refer to specialty wood care products, such as Teak oil, used to maintain the natural wood tones of Teak, Shorea, and similar wood outdoor tables. Without the use of the Teak wood care products, these wooden tables weather over time, from exposure to sun and environment, creating a warm gray wood tone finish.

Textured Tabletop: Textured tabletops feature decorative textured surfaces creating the appearance and feel of wood, wicker, or other natural material but usually composed of melamine, resin, or plastic.

Welded Aluminum Frame: Welded aluminum frames are composed of aluminum metal, finished and/or galvanized for lasting protected support in outdoor environments, and the manufacturer welded the components for a permanent assembled setup. Alternatively, parts of the aluminum frame may be welded, still requiring some assembly upon receipt.
