Before you plan to buy park benches for your space, consider the following features to make your decision:
- Frame Type
- Mounting Option
In few of our last posts, we have discussed about material types and finishing available for park benches. Let’s start from the frame.
The frame adds a unique style to the park benches. An intricate cast aluminum park bench frame makes a traditional style, while a tubular frame creates a more modern look. Make sure the frames are manufactured from high-quality materials and finishes, developed to withstand the elements having little yearly maintenance requirements. Frames are available as:
- Plastic-coated Frames
The frame is heated to around 800 F and then is immersed into a power-shape polymer. The plastic is adhered to the frame and is re-heated to eliminate any imperfections and drippings for the smooth finish. This coating is easily melted back by a heat gun if gashes or cuts occur. This way, the frame remains in its original state.
- Powder-coated Frames
A dry, free-flowing powder is used on the frame’s surface and then is cured under high heat. The finish it brings is more rigid than traditional paint, protecting the frame from corrosion.
