Delivering more than 30,000 seats
We developed a new exterior bench, the design of which focused on ease of portability and storage, as well as material choices.
A foldable leg structure was developed for the benches for transfer and storage, and the angles of the legs vary depending on the sector in which the bench is placed. All benches were equipped with barcodes and the customer was supplied with software with reader devices – by adding “intelligence”, the benches are individualized to facilitate maintenance, storage and placement.
The frame of the benches was hot-dip galvanized and the seat planks are made of specially treated pine under reduced pressure. The seats can withstand even the harshest weather conditions and are easy to maintain.
