Comments Off on Get Post Lockdown Ready With Our Top Commercial Outdoor Furniture Picks
Quite rightly, the UK has been in lockdown since 23 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s clearly vital that we limit the spread of the virus and reduce the strain on the NHS. However, social distancing rules have meant the almost complete closure of the hospitality trade.
But there now seems to be light at the end of the tunnel as the government considers easing the lockdown in phases to get the economy back up and running.
Post-Lockdown Furniture Requirements
We know that restaurants, cafes, pubs, nightclubs and leisure centres are likely to be among the last venues to re-open. However, those with outdoor spaces will probably be able to open earlier.
It will be essential to continue to protect staff and customers by maintaining a physical distance of 2 metres wherever possible. And additional hygiene practices will almost certainly be required. There will probably also be a need to erect protective transparent sneeze screens at the point of sale.
So, for outdoor areas you’ll need commercial furniture that can not only withstand the British weather, but can also help customers stay six feet apart. You’ll want furniture that is easy to move around and stack when not in use, and, importantly, quick and easy to clean/disinfect.
If you’re a pub with a beer garden, or a cafe with a courtyard, this might be a great time to assess whether your outdoor furniture will be fit for purpose this summer and autumn.
Warner Contract Furniture stocks a huge range of great-priced, high quality Commercial Outdoor Furniture for the UK leisure, hospitality and contract markets.

SM France Arizona Table Top
Outdoor tables have to withstand a lot. They have to put up wth hot sunshine, pouring rain and even frost. And then there is all the eating and drinking. Plates and cutlery, glasses, and spills can all take a toll.
The SM France Arizona Table Top offers a great-looking and cost-effective solution for outdoor dining and drinking areas. It’s on our list because it will withstand heavy use and constant cleaning yet still look good.
That’s because it’s made from a moulded resin laminate material and is fully sealed. It’s also UV-stabilised so won’t fade in direct sunlight.
- Lode Outdoor Chairs
Outdoor chairs need to look good yet also be easy to maintain and store. And our Lode Outdoor Chairs fit the bill perfectly. Made in one stylish piece using air-moulding technology from hard-wearing polypropylene, they are strong and fully stackable. They make ideal chairs for use in the outside areas of cafes, bistros, and bars and come in white, black, grey, brown, lime green and orange.
- Matilda Outdoor Chairs
The Matilda Outdoor Chair combines great looks and practicality. The contemporary design includes a curved shell seat made from hardwearing polypropylene reinforced with glass fibre. The Matilda chair is not only easy to keep clean, but it is fully stackable too.
There is a choice of black, green, red, white, yellow, grey and sand, so you should find an option to suit your space. We also offer matching Matilda Outdoor Armchairs.

Our Brew Outdoor Table is a stylish alternative to the more traditional wooden Beer Garden Bench. It is manufactured with a sturdy pwder-coated steel frame supporting hard wearing teak slats. The frame comes in two colour options: silver and grey.
