The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) has been a long standing tradition for many within the GTA, including a number of us at Classic Displays, and this year we are happy to say we have become a part of that tradition.
The CNE was looking to get away from the standard wooden picnic tables, wanting something more sustainable and longer lasting, so they came to see us and what we had to offer. After some deliberation, the CNE decided to order a number of picnic tables and benches as part of a pilot project. In total they ordered 40 picnic tables, 6 handicap accessible tables and 36 benches to replace some of their existing furniture.
All of the benches and picnic tables that were ordered are made from 100% recycled plastic lumber and have a 25 year limited warranty against rotting, warping, splitting and cracking. Virtually maintenance free, these benches and tables can easily handle the amount of traffic the CNE sees year after year.
All of the benches and tables were assembled in house over the course of a week and set to be delivered at the beginning of the following week. It took 5 trips to the exhibition grounds to deliver all of pieces and from there the CNE crew took over, placing the tables and benches throughout the grounds.
The opportunity to work with the CNE has been very exciting for us and something we hope to continue doing in the future. The CNE opens August 16th and runs until September 2nd. With so much to see and do we hope you check it out and make it a part of your summer tradition!
