In the past decade, we have sold commercial benches to a wide variety of organizations. Schools, churches, theme parks, municipal parks, and even office parks have invested in these outdoor metal benches. Many of these customers were replacing wooden benches that had succumbed to dry rot. They chose metal replacements from our inventory that offered a choice of color, including both standard and eclectic tones. The number of design styles has increased, allowing our customers to match their benches to other outdoor furniture, nearby buildings, or the colors of the natural landscape. Choices in concrete mounting, in-ground mounting, and portable mounts make it possible to place these benches in any location–including building lobbies and hallways.
The construction and constitution of today’s commercial benches is very different than the wire metal benches of previous decades. While many do retain the diamond mesh or pinhole patterns we may have seen on older metal benches, the similarity ends there. Metals used in our commercial benches is protected against rust by either electrostatically applied powder coating or by covering the bench seat and back with Thermoplastic. Thermoplastics moisture resistance makes it an excellent sealant, and its contiguous coloration–which is applied to the substance while it is still in liquid form–eliminates the need to repaint commercial benches. Thermoplastic is UV resistant, so its color will not fade even after several years in the summer sun.
In addition to the increased longevity today’s commercial benches have to offer, customers also like the way they can now customized their outdoor seating with personal messages, logos, and emblems. Our factory has three different methods of personalizing outdoor benches. The simplest and most affordable involves cutting a name, a simple image, or a commemorative phrase out of the metal itself. Another method involves a dual color contrast between the lettering and the background. This is a popular technique favored by churches and municipalities who want to make a particular method stand out. A third method of customization sublimating a detailed image into the metal. Many schools prefer this method because it allows them to brand their benches with a high quality picture of the school mascot.
