Easy to Clean
Outdoor steel benches are perfect for restaurants and schools because they are so easy to clean. No more worrying about stains or spills! Rain will clean off most dirt buildup, but you may have to get a sponge and some soapy water out for extremely sticky stains such as jam and other foods.
They wont change colour over time like our oak seats. Hose or wipe down when you think it’s needed, and your outdoor steel benches will look as good as new.
Tough and Durable
These outdoor steel seats and benches are tough. That might seem pretty obvious since they’re made of steel! But it’s easy to forget just how durable steel is as a material. It won’t crack. It won’t split. It won’t break easily. When you invest in outdoor steel benches and seats, you can rest assured that they will last for years. Steel benches have a long lifespan and are highly resistant to vandalism.
A Great Investment
That durability makes outdoor steel seats and benches a fantastic investment. Lasting for years and requiring almost no maintenance, steel benches are a great investment for any business or school. Unlike say our Bromley Seat these have been designed for commercial applications with hundreds of people using them every day, We have the adage of “Fit and Forget” on our steel seats.
Steel is more eco-friendly than you think. It has a endless recyclability. It can be molten down and reformed without loosing it’s strength or quality. For businesses, schools, and local councils, being greener is more important than ever. When you invest in steel benches and seats, you’re telling your community that you care about the environment as much as they do.
Perfect for Any Space
Whether you’re looking for outdoor seating for a public space or a private commercial venture, steel benches and seats are versatile options that will look great in any space. That’s partly down to the sheer range of design options. Opt for something classic like the Forest Saver Seat, or go for something more modern like the Ranger Curved Bench. Whatever your design aesthetic, outdoor steel seats come in such a wide range of looks that you can easily find an option that matches.
Steel Seats and Benches — a Perfect Choice for Outdoor Seating
As you can see, there are many reasons steel seating should be at the top of your list when you’re investing in outdoor furniture. Whether you’re looking for public or commercial outdoor seating, these benches offer a wide range of benefits that are hard to beat. So next time you’re in the market for new benches, don’t forget about steel!
Matching Materials With Steel Seats
Although some of our steel benches and seats are made from 100% steel, such as the 1.8-metre Ranger Stainless Seat, other options come with a range of additional materials. With a design like the Parklane Seat, you get all of the benefits of steel combined with the look and comfort of warm iroko wooden slats. This kind of steel outdoor seating is still available with a choice of colour finishes and can be secured to any surface, including concrete and tarmac.
Then there are designs like the Forest Saver Bench. Available with or without armrests, the Forest Saver uses slats made from recycled plastic, formed to take on the appearance of wood. And since recycled plastic is one of the best materials available for outdoor seating, it’s hard to beat the benefits of matching the durability of steel seats with the comfort and longevity of recycled plastic.
All of our outdoor steel benches come with a choice of armrests and your choice of colour, and you can even add memorials to them. So whatever material you decide to match with your steel benches or seats, you know that you can customise them in various ways to match your needs.
Where are the best places to use steel benches and seats?
While steel seats and benches can be used almost anywhere you need outdoor seating, there are some locations where they’re particularly popular. It’s very common to see steel seats in parks and playgrounds. However, the most popular locations for steel benches and seats are the following.
Schools and Colleges
Their durability and lack of maintenance make traditional and modern steel benches and seats the perfect choice for schools and colleges. Perfect for primary and secondary school playgrounds, they give younger students somewhere to relax and chat with friends during lunch breaks.
For older students, having steel seats and benches on campus makes the wait between lectures and classes much easier while also giving a place to meet and socialise. And because they’re available in modern, colourful designs or more traditional designs, schools and colleges alike can match their steel seats to the overall aesthetic of their teaching environment.
Steel benches and seats are perfect for outside hospitals for various reasons. First, steel is a very strong and durable material that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. This is important because hospital benches and seats need to be able to withstand heavy use. Second, steel is also a very low-maintenance material. It does not require painting or staining and is also resistant to mould and mildew. So steel benches and seats will look good for years to come with minimal care.
Finally, steel benches and seats are also very easy to clean. They can be wiped down with a damp cloth or pressure washed, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. For all these reasons, steel benches and seats are an extremely popular choice for outside hospitals.
You’ll find outdoor steel benches and seats outside many care homes, often for many of the same reasons why schools and hospitals use them so much. They’re extremely durable, and steel benches and seats are very easy to clean, making them ideal for use in communal areas.
They are also relatively inexpensive, which makes them a popular choice for budget-conscious care homes. Ultimately, steel benches and seats offer many advantages, making them an ideal choice for use in care homes and other health-related facilities.
Are cast iron seats or steel seats a better option?
Both cast iron and steel seats are very popular when it comes to outdoor seating. The two metals have their advantages, so it’s essential to clearly understand what you want from your outdoor seating areas.
For example, cast iron seats are even more durable than steel seats. While steel seats will last decades, cast iron seats and benches can last generations. However, with that longevity comes a higher price tag and a noticeable weight increase. Cast iron benches are very heavy!
Choose which one is best for you by weighing up your needs. That’s particularly true when it comes to designs. Steel benches and seats can come in both traditional and modern styles, while cast iron benches match the more traditional aesthetic. So modern steel benches should be your preferred option if your hotel or restaurant has a more cutting-edge branding theme.
