Made from bent stainless steel Bentlie is really happy sitting in parks and residential environments - its a streamlined modern equivalent of the traditional park bench. But Bentlie's slim appearance belies its strength - the 10mm thick metal ends are made from two interlocking pieces of bent steel that are slotted and fully welded together. With a price tag of £1125 Bentlie can be fabricated with the following extras.
Intermediate Armrests - not a problem. 40mm wide and L shaped to match the seat ends.
Studded skateboard deterrents - Inserted in to the leading slat to look as unobtrusive as possible. While sitting, you can't really feel them either.
Ground coverplates - a neat solution for unit paving. These go around the bottom of the legs to conceal grouting and badly cut paviors.
Bentlies are not suitable for free standing. Standard fixing is to a below ground concrete foundation although surface fixings can be supplied if you're surface is suitable (like concrete or timber decking) and your environment is low risk from theft. We recommend using tamper proof security bolts anyway. Also bear in mind that you’re surface does need to be reasonably level so the bench doesn’t appear to tilt.
We use high quality FSC Iroko on Bentlies firstly because it is sustainable and as it is one of the most durable hardwoods available in the UK. It doesn’t really splinter or warp like some other cheaper un-named hardwoods can when used outdoors. Seat slats are replaceable and can be ordered direct but need to be fitted by someone suitably qualified.
As all timber does Iroko will weather and lose its golden surface colour so if this isn’t the look you are after there are a few alternatives that help to sustain colour. The first is oiling (with teak oil); second is staining (with a quality stain) and lastly there is occasional pressure washing/sanding to restore the colour. They all work but have some maintenance liabilities. Bentlies are supplied with (teak) oiled Iroko as standard.
