What is an ‘Upstand’?

One of the differences between a Centre Table and a Wall Bench is the Upstand.  The upstand is like a lip or a small splashback along the rear edge of the table that stops any liquids dripping down the back of your table and therefore down the wall.

As well as to the rear, we can add upstands to the left, right and front of the table, or even to all edges if that’s what you need.
