What is the standard size of a trestle table?

Trestle tables (also sometimes known as folding tables ) are used for a multitude of purposes from events and exhibitions to everyday use in a community hall or school. Due to their fold-ability and ease of use, they are incredibly versatile and practical. Once you start to spot them you’ll realise they are everywhere!

We regularly talk to clients who are confused about the standard size of these trestle tables, which can cause some frustration. The main reason for this confusion is because historically the trestle tables measurements were based on the imperial measurement system of feet and inches.  For example the most popular 1.8 metre table is what the Americans would call 6 feet.

Reference guide to trestle table sizes

Trestle tables come in two standard sizes

  • 1.8 metres wide
  • 2.4 metres wide

These can vary slightly between manufacturers, but very typical sizes for the tables are either around 1830mm wide x 760mm deep x 740mm high, or 2400mm wide x 760mm deep x 740mm high.  The most popular standard size is the 1.8m wide version.
