But not all park benches are created equal. National Outdoor Furniture offers high quality park benches that are durable, attractive and a comfortable place to rest. They fit in well with the beauty and ambiance of parks and other outdoor spaces, and are also spacious enough to accommodate more than two people.
If you wish to sponsor a bench for a public place or need one for your own park project, we offer the best commercial benches in the market. Here are the following factors that you should consider when choosing commercial park benches to be installed in your park or other outdoor area:
Park benches should be attractive and welcoming, with a style and color scheme that go well with the surrounding area. Some models of park benches have the traditional design with cast aluminum sides and wooden seat slats, while others are made from coated metal in a more modern design that would fit right in outside a modern art museum. Still others are backless benches.
You can also choose from portable or permanently mounted commercial park benches.
Your commercial park bench should be top quality, since you can expect numerous visitors to use it each day and it will be left outdoors even when the park closes. Once you install park benches using our in-ground or surface mount options, the only time it will be moved again is during renovations or when it’s time to replace the seats.
But since you shouldn’t have to search for the perfect park bench again anytime soon, we offer seats that are durable and resistant to any kind of weather -- even when it’s raining or snowing hard. We make our commercial park benches to last through all types of weather and keep looking good.
A Guide to Park Bench Materials
There are many styles of park bench to choose from, and in many cases, the design is influenced by the materials used to create these benches. We offer a full line of park benches for public use, made to last and manufactured from the following high quality materials:
The classic wooden park bench is what most people think of when they think of park bench designs. Wood park benches are comfortable, with a design that fits perfectly into any type of outdoor area. It also matches the natural good looks and ambience of parks that are filled with trees and plants.
Wooden park benches are also lighter than most models -- making it a portable type of bench if you don’t secure it to the ground.
We offer some metal benches that are made from cast aluminum that has been coated with a thermoplastic finish. These benches are extremely durable and can last for several years, because the thermoplastic coating doesn’t corrode or chip away -- making it highly resistant in any type of weather.
Public park benches made from recycled plastic are another extremely durable park bench option. They are just as resistant as thermoplastic benches when it comes to handling any environmental or weather condition, since they are made of heavy duty plastic material. Recycled plastic commercial park benches are also known to be lighter than some of the other bench materials, so they are good for when you need a portable bench. Surface mounting kits are available.
These benches are available in various colors, along with a wide variety of designs and color themes. And as they are made from recycled plastic, these benches are also an eco-friendly solution that goes well as an addition to parks and other natural spaces.
Metallic benches are also one of the most common types of commercial park benches. But make sure that it’s a coated metal bench to ensure the highest level of resistance against any type of weather. All it takes is simple maintenance such as surface cleaning in order to keep these coated metal benches in top shape and good appearance.
Cast aluminum park benches are made from solid aluminum, which ensures its long-lasting beauty. Cast aluminum is also lighter than some other commercial park bench types.
How To Maintain Your Commercial Park Benches
Our park benches are designed to be low maintenance. However, it is best to clean them properly from time to time -- a dirty-looking bench is not an inviting sight to visitors, and it can even seem like a sign of overall neglect. Here are some of the ways you can care for park benches made from various materials:
- Wood: Wooden park benches such as our classic Victorian benches are made to last, but they are still made of timber, and can get stained. They are easy to clean using water and a gentle cleaning solution.
- Plastic: Plastic benches may require you to perform a simple clean up using water and a cleaning solution only. Plastic benches are the easiest to clean; some may even require wiping the bench with a dry or wet cloth only.
- Metal: Coated metal benches are easy to keep clean because they don’t attract a lot of dirt and grime. If cleaning is needed, simply wipe or rinse off the bench.
