Halloween Vibes without the Scare: Setting Up a Spooky Restaurant Ambiance with ASTM tested Outdoor Seating

A Special Feeling in the Air

The crisp autumn air, jack-o'-lanterns in the window or at the door, and the playful spirits of Halloween make this an enchanting time of year. While it's a season associated with spookiness, your outdoor restaurant furniture doesn't have to be a cause for fright. In fact, it can be a delightful addition to your establishment, providing both comfort and style. Join us as we explore how high-quality materials, rigorous ASTM testing, and a touch of creativity can transform your outdoor dining area into a Halloween haven without sacrificing quality or safety.


Product Performance: ASTM Testing

When selecting outdoor seating for your restaurant, performance is paramount. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has established nationally recognized performance standards for plastic chairs and chaises intended for outdoor use.  Manufacturers who adhere to ASTM standards submit their products to specific testing to ensure their seating products meet these industry standards. Grosfillex conducts testing that includes:

Static Load Tests

Impact Tests

Rear Leg Tests

Each of these tests is done on Glass and Wood surfaces to simulate different restaurant environments. Grosfillex also performs additional testing to ensure that our products stand up to our strict standards on UV resistance. 

Product performance is something we take very seriously and should be a factor when making your purchasing decision.


Quality Materials for Durability

Choosing high-quality materials for your outdoor furniture is crucial for longevity and maintaining a polished appearance. Opting for weather-resistant materials such as resin, aluminum, wrought iron, or synthetic wicker can ensure that your furniture withstands the test of time. These materials are not only resistant to rain, wind, and sunlight but are also easy to clean, making maintenance a breeze.


Embracing the Halloween Spirit

Now that we've established the importance of safety and quality, let's dive into the fun part – embracing the Halloween spirit! Incorporating themed elements into your outdoor restaurant furniture can enhance the ambiance and delight your guests. Consider adding playful touches like orange and black cushions, spiderweb-patterned tablecloths, or pumpkin-shaped seat covers. By incorporating these subtle yet festive accents, you can create a Halloween-themed atmosphere without compromising on comfort or aesthetic appeal.


Lighting the Way

As the sun sets earlier during the Halloween season, proper lighting becomes essential. Stringing fairy lights or lanterns around your outdoor dining area not only creates a magical ambiance but also ensures visibility and safety for your patrons. Twinkling lights, strategically placed jack-o’-lanterns with timed battery-operated candles, or even a spooky fog machine can add an extra touch of enchantment to your Halloween-themed outdoor setting.

Enhancing your outdoor seating area with subtle Halloween-themed accents and thoughtful lighting will enchant your guests and create a memorable dining experience.
