Benches and Seating
Few street furniture projects would be complete without an element of benches or other seating, and indeed some of the projects we carry out very much have it as a focus. Designs for benches and seating are literally infinite, and the example you can see here is just one of the many we have manufactured over the years - some from architects' drawings, with others just from rough ideas which we have gone on to develop and fully design.
Materials for benches and seating can be very varied, and include steel (galvanised, powder-coated and stainless), timber, recycled plastic, cast stone and concrete. And when any of these materials are combined, we are in a unique position to carry out the manufacturing because we have all the facilities and expertise in-house. For example, we are one of the major cast stone manufacturers in the UK, and even have our own mould making facility. So imagine a highly contemporary bench design which used cast stone for the base and supporting structure, then galvanised steel for the frame and timber slats for the actual seating element - we could manufacture all of that in-house and even design it if necessary. This means that unlike some street furniture companies whose capability is restricted to what they can manufacture (or they sub-contract the work), we can produce any type of bench or other seating in-house.
We are also very happy to produce small runs of benches or even one-offs, as we fully realise that not every project requires large quantities of seating.
