NOROCK was established in 2009 with our head office located in Australia. NOROCK comes from a line of stabilising innovations created by Chris Heyring. These stabilising innovations include the successful Kinetic Suspension Systems and Nauti-Craft Marine Suspension. Kinetic Suspension systems are used by some of the worlds leading automotive companies such as Toyota, Nissan and McLaren and Nauti-Craft is well advanced in designing water crafts under license for use in the Recreational and Offshore workboat markets in Europe and the Middle East. The basic functionality of a NOROCK table is closely related to the hydraulic systems used by Kinetic or Naut-Craft but NOROCK has been completely simplified and adapted to work as a purely mechanical system.

NOROCK bases use a simple mechanical system with four pivoting legs that are interconnected in such a way that they must reach an average weight loading on all four feet. When a table is placed on an uneven surface the feet will move until all four feet reach a state of equilibrium or more simply, a state of stability.
Yes, all of our bases are designed, engineered and built to contract and commercial-grade quality.
Take a look at a range of projects featuring NOROCK.
Yes, all NOROCK table bases are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Our aluminium and steel bases are powder-coated with quality coatings providing a high level of corrosion protection, and our plastic product is naturally corrosion resistant. Stainless steel hardware is used for all critical and external components.
Our NOROCK table bases are guaranteed to two years against structural or manufacturing defects that are not due to improper use or lack of maintenance. Our coatings are guaranteed for one year against invasive rust not deriving from scratches or abrasions due to use and which cannot be removed by normal cleaning and care. The coatings on NOROCK bases cannot be warranted in seaside installations unless an ‘extra protection’ coating option has been specified.

No, NOROCK table bases can be used with a wide range of tabletops. All NOROCK tables come complete with a top plate/spider with variable screw holes so you can pair NOROCK table bases with any tabletop you choose.
Absolutely, NOROCK tables bases are designed to be used with a wide range of tabletops. Our bases can be fitted to either new tops, or retrofit NOROCK bases to your existing tops.
For all our self-stabilising x-base models, for any square or round tops you may have, the maximum top weight we recommend is 20kg / 45lbs but we have customers who have used much heavier tops in the past. The mechanism doesn’t have any delicate oil-filled parts, it is robust and exceeds our recommendations comfortably.
If using a heavy table top (think granite or marble) we would recommend using our Parkway self-stabilising table base with its steel plate legs — in particular our new heavy duty version of the Parkway which also comes with a steel hub for extra strength.
For any of our self-stabilising t-base models the maximum top weight we recommend is around 30kg / 65lbs.
Yes, our full range of self-stabilising table bases are all ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. Our dining height bases are 715mm / 28.14 inches.
