Our Perforated Metal Backless Bench is ideal for any location. Its simple but unique style lends it an unassuming character. It is a common addition to areas that wish to offer some temporary seating for visitors. They can be found in city parks, retail malls, schools, universities, transportation centers, and courtyards.
The Perforated Metal Backless Bench is constructed by welding a perforated metal seat to a sturdy frame with legs. There is no back or arms on the bench but the ends of the bench do have slightly elevated support handles. The seat is constructed from eleven gauge steel with 1/2 inch holes on staggered centers 1 inch apart. The bench is offered in three standard lengths of four feet, five feet and six feet. The four foot model weighs 155 pounds while the five foot model weighs 165 pounds. The six foot model weighs 175 pounds. A matching receptacle is available and sold separately.
The Perforated Metal Backless Bench has pre-drilled mounting holes and the final buyer has three basic mounting options. The simplest option is to place the bench in the desired location without any mounting or attachments. This option is called the portable mount because it is very easy to move the bench when needed. However, because the bench is not secured to the ground or surface, it can be easily stolen. The most common mounting option is the surface mount. Usually the bench is located on a hard, flat surface of tile or concrete and mounting holes are drilled in the concrete. Anchors are then inserted into the holes so the bench legs can be bolted to the anchors. The bench can be moved from its mounted location if it is unbolted. The final mounting option, in-ground mounting, is most common in outdoor locations where the bench will be located on grass or soil. This option requires that leg extensions be welded or bolted to the legs of the bench. These leg extensions are lowered into holes that have been dug into the ground. Then wet concrete is poured into the hole and the bench is permanently located at that position.
The Perforated Metal Backless Bench is covered with a thermoplastic coating. This coating, also referred to as powder coating, is the latest technology in protecting metal from corrosion and rust. It utilizes an electrical process whereby the dry powder coat and the metal object are given opposite electrical charges. When the dry powder is spraying onto the metal object it results in a very strong adhesion. The metal object is then “baked” and the powder coat binds together and binds to the metal. The coating can be relatively thick and is usually between twenty-five and thirty millimeters in thickness. The final thermoplastic / plastic / plastic-epoxy coating is very durable as well as attractive. It will not crack or peel and can be easily repaired if cut or damaged. The application of heat with an industrial heat gun will allow the coating to melt slightly and rebind itself, thereby repairing the damaged area. In addition, the thermoplastic coating has UV inhibitors to resist fading. An added bonus is that spray paint has very poor adhesion to thermoplastic coatings. In the event that a bench is spray painted by vandals it can be easily cleaned with common cleaners.
The Perforated Metal Backless Bench, or benches, would be an attractive addition to any setting. There are sixteen standard colors to consider. The available colors are black, red, orange, yellow, green, bk-green, teal, blue, navy, purple, burgundy, brown, beige, sandstone, gray, and granite. This wide selection of colors will almost guarantee a complimentary color match for any environment.
