City benches are not only a place to relax in various parts of the city, especially in parks and squares, but also an important element of architecture in cities of various types, including sea and mountain resorts. The offer of producers of street furniture includes benches made of various materials, incl. cast iron, metal or steel benches. Which one should you choose to be sure that they will last for many years next to a park alley or at a bus stop?
City benches are usually uncovered or canopyed, which is why they are affected by atmospheric factors such as rain, frost, snow, solar radiation. They are exposed to freezing in winter and high temperatures in summer. Moreover, metal park benches are often subject to vandalism. In order for city benches to be resistant to the above-mentioned factors, it is necessary to choose an appropriate material that is durable and resistant to damage. Among the available proposals are:
Often, modern park benches are made of wood, and concrete benches appear at stops or at squares. Usually, city benches are made of a combination of various materials – the frame is made of cast iron or steel or metal, and the seat is made of much warmer wood, for example pine.
When choosing the material from which city benches are made, it is worth considering not only safety and durability, but also the arrangement of the city space. As park benches, it is worth choosing those with a wooden seat, which fit perfectly into the floral space, providing a great place for a short rest. In turn, near city fountains, steel benches or cast-iron benches, which are resistant to water, will be the best.
It is worth putting on benches that can be attached to the ground, which guarantees greater resistance to vandalism. Rounded edges make city benches safe for people using them, including children and seniors. If we care about durability, it is worth choosing powder-coated cast iron benches that do not lose their color under the influence of sunlight. Depending on your preferences and the environment, you can choose benches with or without a backrest.
