benches are ideal for practically any indoor or outdoor area
that needs a simple, comfortable place to sit. Athletic and sporting facilities use
them for locker room and sideline seating.
Shopping malls use them for indoor and outdoor seating. They are also common in city parks,
public school bus stops, college buildings and outdoor areas, office parks, and
benches feature a rugged construction and treatment
process that makes them impervious to climatic extremes, variable weather
conditions, and vandalism.
Each bench features a perforated metal seat welded to a sturdy metal
frame with legs. Rather than having
complicated support arms, many benches are designed with curved, u-like bars
that elevate slightly above the end of the bench. This provides sufficient arm rest or
hand grip for people seated at the end of the structure.
To protect the metal from rust and corrosion, thermoplastic powder
coating is used to cover the entirety of its surface. Adhesion of this substance to the metal
is first achieved by giving the bench an electrical charge, then charging the
particles in the coating with an opposing charge. The resulting magnetic field makes the
bond between the two very strong.
The adhesion is then strengthened even more by baking the backless
bench at high temperatures. This
hardens and thickens the coat into a secondary surface that will not peel or
crack. It is also resistant to
spray painting, so if any graffiti damage occurs, the paint can be wiped off
with standard cleaners. If a vandal
cuts the material, a heat gun can be applied to reseal the opening.
Thermoplastic also has a UV component that is highly resistant to
are constructed with pre-drilled holes that allow for three mounting
The first and most basic type of mounting is the portable mount. This allows for the bench to be
relocated. While this is the most
convenient method of mounting, there is always a risk of theft.
Surface mounting is therefore a much more common method of bench
mounting. Holes are first drilled
into a concrete surface. Anchors
are then inserted to hold the bench legs in place. The bench can still be relocated, if
necessary, by unbolting the legs.
The likelihood of theft, however, is greatly minimized due to the length
of time and difficulty involved in disassembly.
When a bench must be mounted directly into the ground, but there is
no concrete surface to which to bolt it, in-ground mounting is required. This involves drilling holes in the
ground. The legs of the bench,
which are will be pre-configured with welding leg extensions, will be lowered
into these holes. Wet concrete is
then poured around the leg extensions and allowed to set the bench in
benches made exclusively for use in athletic facilities.
There are Indoor benches for locker rooms made from wood, metal, and
plastic. Plastic is the most
resistant to denting and scratching and is often preferred due to its high
vandal resistance. Aluminum benches
are known for their comfort, and wood benches offer affordable price options.
Outdoor benches for sideline seating include
standard models that allow players to face in either direction while resting
from the game. Waterproof models
are also available, as well as benches with diamond-shaped metal perforations
designed for maximum comfort.
