Faithfull TRESTLESP Plastic Trestles 82cm x 57cm (Set of 2)
About this deal
Essentially, a trestle is a frame which supports a horizontal object. In this review, we will of course be talking about workshop trestles, however a trestle can come in the form of almost anything – hence the trestle bridge, basically formed of hundreds of trestles supporting the top of the bridge, be that a road, railway line or simply a flat surface. The FAITRESTLESP is a pair of plastic trestles that fold flat for easy storage and transportation. The top features flip-up safety pegs to secure the workpiece and rubber inserts to prevent the workpiece slipping. They have non-slip rubber feet.
You might think it’s a stupid question, but when it comes to building and decorating, there is no such thing as a stupid question. It can be a complicated business! There are many different types of trestles nowadays, coming in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. But, at its very essence, the trestle is every builder and decorator’s left-hand man. It, quite literally, is the foundation for all construction work.What I really love about the Stanley trestle is the addition of a handy tool, by the bottom of the legs. This is great for those dumbfounded moments of ‘where on earth did I put my screwdriver?’ and is just a nice added touch, unexpected when considering the low price.

It may look unstable and prone to wobbles, but this piece of kit is surprisingly sturdy, promising to support up to 200kg – the weight of an overweight panda. However, this is only when you use two of these trestles together, something which would be necessary if you wanted to support a full desk. Made from FSC certified pine, this product contains no varnish or dyes and has even been certified with the EU Ecolabel, meaning it has a reduced environmental impact when compared with other products.
Aesthetically, wooden trestles are arguably the best-looking option. They have a traditional look and feel to them, and their muted colour seamlessly fits into any indoor or outdoor space without looking too garish. Furthermore, they are much easier to paint and repaint, if decoration is your thing. They are also made of natural materials, and we all know how long-lasting wood can be. Despite this, once you have the trestle built, you should be good to go, and with impressive durability, this trestle will last you years, therefore it’s arguably worth the slightly inflated price. Furthermore, the Silverline heavy duty trestle also requires self-assembly, and trust me – this is no easy feat. The instructions are pretty convoluted and there are a fair number of parts to put together, so make sure you schedule a little time off to build this product and make sure you don’t lose any nuts and bolts!
Used to distinguish individual users by means of designation of a randomly generated number as client identifier, which allows calculation of visits and sessions. Measuring 74 x 50 x 45cm and weighing in at 3.12 kg, it’s extremely lightweight, but not particularly transportable, as it doesn’t fold down. Furthermore, this product does require self-assembly, and whilst it only calls for a couple of screws, a hammer and a screwdriver, it may not be the product for a DIY novice. However, wooden trestles are the least portable option, as it usually takes an element of deconstruction to fold them down and fit them into a van. This makes them a great option if you are working out of the same workshop day-in, day-out, but not the best if you’re constantly on the move. Metal trestles
