Kettler Top Star – Quality Construction
It is a completely weatherproof table tennis table owing to its 7/8inch aluminium table top which is resistant to corrosion or any other type of weather related damage. Kettler’s patented Alu Tec Climate Control goes a step further and ensures that the surface doesn’t expand or contract in different kinds of weather.
The oval tubed legs of this Kettler ping pong table are coated with synthetic powder that protects the surface from any kind of corrosion or scratching. The four edges of the table are supported and secured by an aluminium channelled apron. Edges are most vulnerable to damage especially during folding and unfolding of the table. So, special care has been taken to prevent any damage to the edges.
One can see that the Top Star table has a strong and solid basic body framework, and every effort has been made by Kettler to provide in-built protection.
