NEW TABLE TENNIS TABLE WITH A FOLDING DESIGN

The Centre for Industrial Equipment Design (CDEI UPC) has collaborated with the company RS Barcelona to design a folding table tennis table, a creation by the designer Rafael Rodríguez. The new table combines both functionality and design: maximum playing capacity, high durability, high quality materials (steel treated with cataphoresis and polyester powder paint on a high-density high pressure laminate structure), and suitability for use outdoors or indoors. CDEI UPC worked on the design of a folding mechanism integrated into the structure of the table tennis table itself. It consists of a set of bars that enable each wing of the table to be folded and locked into place in play or storage position. It is designed for easy handling.
