MityLite Introduces New Versions of Its Madera Plywood & Laminate Table Lines
Rigorous testing ensures real-world performance, lower cost of ownership and reduced chance of liability.
OREM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a reflection of the durably designed commercial furniture manufacturer’s continuous push toward product design and construction that meet demanding use, MityLite today announced new versions of its Madera Plywood and Laminate table lines. Adding to MityLite’s hallmark durable yet lightweight reputation, all Madera tables now feature UltraEdge™ for superior impact resistance, safer handling and improved aesthetics.
Made from an extremely resilient polymer, UltraEdge is permanently bonded to the table’s perimeter. The resulting smooth radius edge finish and the absence of sharp attachment hardware provide safer handling and linen protection benefits.
The table’s underside features Easy-Grip aluminum runners to minimize weight while adding strength and rigidity. Easy-Grip aluminum runners also eliminate the possibility of painful splinters typical of wood runners used on other tables in the marketplace.
These new durable design features for both Madera plywood and laminate table lines demonstrate increased impact resistance and damage reduction when tested under rigorous commercial simulations. Multiple sets of extreme tests ensure real-world performance, lower cost of ownership, and reduced chance of liability for MityLite customers. As an example, the product’s steel leg brackets and T-nut leg fasteners ensure long-lasting performance to prevent leg pullout and are tested to withstand 15 years of daily use.
Available in acrylic sealed plywood or decorative high-pressure laminate surfaces, Madera's broad range of table sizes, shapes and finish options meet a wide variety of facility needs. Visit MityLite.com or call 800-909-7952.

MITYLITE ADDS FORM + FUNCTION WITH NEW REVEAL LINEN-LESS TABLE STYLES
OREM, Utah — March 25, 2014 —By adding several shapes, sizes, and laminate surface finish options, the expansion of MityLite’s Reveal Table line presents new linen-less alternatives to those responsible for banquet, meeting, and event activities. Available immediately, MityLite adds to the popular Reveal line a half-round, serpentine, and varied mobile buffet table styles (serpentine and rectangular) with display tiers.
While Reveal Linen-less Tables add degrees of flexibility to room layout designs and meeting configurations, venue sustainability initiatives can also be accomplished by eliminating laundering needs and linen replacement costs associated with other table types. Designed for hotel banquet and conference spaces, convention centers, universities, and other multipurpose meeting facilities, the distinctive Reveal table assortment features sturdy yet lightweight frames topped with long-lasting, commercial-grade laminate surfaces that simply wipe clean.
"Reveal tables are a more durable and economical alternative to aluminum-top tables,” said MityLite Vice President of Marketing Spencer Posey. "With the addition of these new sizes, the Reveal Table platform that has been so successful in our customers’ meeting rooms is now a perfect fit for banquet lines, food and beverage breakout areas, and event spaces. The laminate surface of these tables offers superior scratch resistance to better preserve the linen-less look over time, delivering a higher return on investment to our customers.
"In addition, the new mobile buffets support up to 300 pounds during transport, so they are especially useful in reducing event labor needs by reducing trips from the front- to back-of-house and eliminate food and beverage placement distractions,” noted Posey.
The new Reveal Specialty table shapes and sizes join an existing linen-less line that includes a wide variety of contemporary table styles: Fixed-width,Flip, and the Duo— a two-in-one meeting room table. Available in hundreds of scratch-resistant, laminate finish options in wood, metal, stone and abstract patterns, Reveal Linen-less Tables are made in the USA, backed by a 15-year limited warranty, and are GREENGUARD Certified™.
