RockSteady from Echelon

Say goodbye to rickety cafe tables with this clever new table base from Echelon.

RockSteady is a table base that eliminates rocking on uneven surfaces.

Designed and produced by Sydney firm Echelon Products, RockSteady has been developed for the hospitality market – cafes, bars and restaurants.

Everybody has experienced the irritation of a rocking table while eating and drinking at a café or restaurant.

But spare a thought for the staff who spend much of their working day stabilising these tables.

Whether it is screwing adjustable feet or wedging drink coasters and napkins under the base, the solution is always clumsy.

It is time consuming yet has to be repeated whenever a table is moved. The process is also unhygienic as staff regularly use their hands to adjust the feet.

RockSteady is a brilliantly simple solution to this conundrum.

The design employs a hinged leg that compensates for uneven floor surfaces.

This hinged leg gradually rises and descends when moved right or left.

The user taps the leg sideways with their foot and rocking is eliminated in seconds.

RockSteady is made from stainless steel and is suitable for indoor and outdoor.

It is supplied with a two year warranty and is engineered to last. Worldwide patents are pending.

RockSteady is available as a base or complete with your choice of table top supplied and fitted.
