College campuses represent one of the larger user groups of commercial outdoor furniture. Campus areas between buildings are furnished to provide students, faculty, and visitors with comfortable areas for rest, conversation, and study. On college campuses, we normally see dozens of areas that are furnished with outdoor furnishings. Placement of these furnishings correlates to campus buildings, parking areas, athletic areas, and student transit areas.
Seating is the first and most important thing to attend to on a college campus. All of the areas previously mentioned witness an incredible number of persons passing through them each day. Some of these areas can be furnished as a courtesy to make them more comfortable to pedestrians. In other areas, seating is an absolute necessity. Metal benches are by far the most practical type of commercial outdoor furniture to use for both purposes. Benches, made from either metal or concrete, can be installed outside of buildings, at bus stops, near athletic fields, and along sidewalks. Metal patio chairs are often installed in outdoor courtyards and atriums. Metal school benches by XPB Locker come in many different styles and can be customized with the name of the school, a Greek organization on campus, or dedicated as memorials to university contributors.
Because college campuses witness a high level of outdoor activity, it is also necessary to install outdoor accessories in key areas. Trash receptacles rank at the top of the accessory list. They should be placed around all school buildings, perimeters of parking lots, and along all sidewalks. We have a very large selection of outdoor trash cans that feature a variety of designs that will compliment any type of architecture or university landscaping design. Our commercial outdoor furniture accessories section also itemizes several types of cigarette snuffers which offer schools a very affordable and practical solution to the problem of cigarette litter and possible fires. Another very important amenity that every campus needs is bicycle storage racks. As more and more students ride bikes to colleges each year, it is necessary to devote entire parking areas to these vehicles. Luckily, all of these racks can be installed in less travelled sidewalk areas, unused sections of parking lots, or in rotundas without consuming excessive amounts of space.
Colleges and universities also find a great many uses for metal picnic tables. While we may not immediately associate a campus environment with a piece of commercial outdoor furniture we normally expect to see in parks, tables are no less important in an academic environment. Colorful and stylish metal tables contribute to the aesthetic of the landscape by making it appear more amenable to human activity. They also provide students with much more than a place to eat. Picnic tables are excellent places to setup laptops when the weather favors working outside. Schools do not have to restrict their installation of tables to shaded areas only, either. Umbrellas and shade covers allow colleges and universities to setup groups of tables near student union buildings, outside of dormitories, and in courtyards of university apartments.
