Our frequently asked questions

How to choose the right table top?

What are the max dimensions for a table top mounted on 4 TIPTOE legs?
180 x 100 cm and a thickness of 40mm for the standard TIPTOE leg

150 x 100cm and a thickness of 40mm for the small TIPTOE leg

What is the max load (including top) for 4 TIPTOE legs?
The max load is 70kg for all types of legs including the table top. If you wish to use a heavier surface, please reach out to us at [email protected]

What are the precautions to take if you choose a different tray from TIPTOE?
We do not recommend particular and brittle materials such as glass, marble, stone… as well as tops with bevelled trays that are not compatible with our leg.

Are my TIPTOE legs suitable for outdoor use?

Our products are mainly for indoor use.

Although our legs have a special coating (100% epoxy anti-UV anti-corrosion paint), they’re mainly meant to be used indoor. Our legs may be installed in covered outdoor spaces but might be subject to corrosion.

Are TIPTOE tables stable?

Yes! Our tables are as stable as conventional tables.

As long as you follow our installation guides, your tables will be just fine!

Overall, it’s imperative to use table with a thickness comprised within 30mm and 40mm with our 75-cm TIPTOE table legs. For tables exceeding 150 cm long it takes a mandatory thickness of 4 cm. Beyond 200 cm in length you have to add 2 leg per meter.
