Stark Bench

Application

The seating is available in four standard length options available in full-size and junior versions, which are suitable for lower school applications. Products are supplied for bolt-down surface mounting as standard, which is our recommendation for level sites, or with the option of extended posts for in-ground installation. Applications include parks, nature reserves, schools and heritage sites.

Description

Softwood timber bench that can be used independently or as a coordinated suite of products (with seats, tables and picnic tables also available separately).

The softwood construction makes for an economical alternative to hardwood seating and table ranges, with pressure treatment providing good medium-term durability. The range is characterised by heavy-duty timber sections with bolted connections to give a tough, almost industrial aesthetic.

All timber sections are ‘regularised’ with planed faces and eased edges, with cross-cuts also softened to eliminate sharp edges and reduce the risk of splintering. Softwood can be supplied in a ‘natural’ pressure treated finish which can add a slight green tinge to the pale colouration of the timber or can be treated with a supplementary saturating oil in a variety of tinted colours.

Features and benefits:

  • Products are supplied part-assembled and flat packed for on-site assembly.
  • All product fixings are provided, with the exception of ground anchors and the adhesive.
  • Products can be supplied fully assembled (at additional cost).

Armrests:

  • Armrests are a useful aid for the less-able-bodied in particular, helping them to lower themselves onto a seat and also alight from it. Armrests can also deter rough sleeping if placed appropriately. All full-size Stark seating products, with the exception of the Single Slat Bench, are available with armrests.
  • The simple block forms, which have an overhang that can be firmly gripped, are pre-fitted at any of the positions shown on the illustrations below, which are designed to maintain comfortable seating widths. If the need for armrests is only identified after the product has been installed, they can be easily retro-fitted.
  • Consult technical literature for size information, varies depending on the configuration.

- In-ground installation:
