Which mounting frame are available?
Rectangular plastisol picnic tables come in three frame styles: Portable, In-Ground, and Surface Mount.
A portable frame is perfect if you cannot permanently install the picnic table. Portable frame are a non-permanent solution, making it possible to move the picnic table. Portable frame can sit on a flat surface without anchoring. Portable picnic tables are the easiest to install.
Surface mounting is a semi-permanent solution. If you would like to prevent someone from walking off with the picnic table, but would still like to move it someday then the Surface Mount is the solution. Surface mounting is ideal if your picnic table will be going onto a concrete surface. Surface mounting requires a steel plate to be bolted onto a concrete or asphalt surface.
In-Ground mounting is a permanent solution. This mounting is ideal for areas where vandalism is a concern. In-ground mounts are used in grassy areas or are prepared to be put in a concrete pad. The installment for an in-ground mount requires the post to be set into an approximately 18" concrete poured hole.
