Table and desk tops tend to be heavy, so we'd recommend using 3 prong legs to make sure you've got sufficient support. 10mm is fine for a surface weighing up to 60kg, but if it's any heavier, opt for 12mm.

3 prong legs will give you enough support for everyday tasks at your countertop – like working, eating and drinking. We recommend the 12mm legs, in case you ever want to place heavy items on top of the counter.

Tall hairpin legs can transform a simple wooden surface into a unique home bar. Our 40 inch pins support up to 80kg freestanding, but more if you fix the table to a wall or static fixing.

 

PICK YOUR COLOUR

Now you can enjoy the fun bit. Our legs are available in a selection of finishes – from rustic raw steel, to copper, to duck egg blue. 

All our legs come with free color-matched protection feet to protect your floors.

 

If you have any questions, or you’d like any more advice on which hairpin legs would suit your project, feel free to get in touch.

 

As always, we can’t wait to see what you make!
