The Pittman ® Street Experience
Park benches are a staple product in most street furniture ranges. They can complement business fronts, urban streets, park seating areas, and more. High-quality seating allows young and old to sit and relax.
Having public benches in place will boost visitor numbers to the area and will also help to increase repeat visitors to local businesses. Benches can also work well alongside bus shelters and bus stops, allowing passengers to be comfortable while waiting on public transport.
Combine benches with planters on urban roadsides to instantly boost the street aesthetic. The benches will give pedestrians a place to sit, while planters can include flowers and plants to make the area feel more welcoming.
- Resting place for pedestrians - wooden park benches allow pedestrians to sit and relax when out in public spaces. Benches encourage more visitors to the area while helping with repeat business to local merchants.
- Boost streetscape aesthetic - the installation of benches will instantly boost the overall look of the entire street. Better looking streets can attract more business and make pedestrians feel more welcome.
- Encourages people to be outdoors - benches will encourage people to be outdoors and meet with others. The benches can help to provide stronger social bonding and reduce isolation. Well-placed park benches can facilitate interactions in urban environments.
Use park benches to create the best possible experiences for visitors and pedestrians. Having high-quality seating in place will ensure that visitors enjoy their time in the area and will likely visit again.
A picnic table set may also be popular in green spaces in place of regular benches. These tables will give park visitors a place to sit, eat or drink and gather with others in comfort.

- Wood - wood park benches provide an attractive, natural looking finish for greenspaces and streetscapes. Wood designs are usualy treated against rotting and corrosion and are highly suited to busy park environments.
- Steel - steel benches are one of the hardest wearing outdoor seating options, designed for long-term use in urban settings. Steel is highly customisable and is availalbe in variours colours and designs.
- Concrete - concrete benches are highly suited to urban settings and provide a modern, robust seat. Due to their naturally heavy weight they essentially require no installation and will free-stand in place.
Most park benches are approximately 1800mm (6 Feet) in length. This can accomodate approximately 3-4 people per bench. However, numbers can vary depending on the bench type. Smaller sizes and single chair options are also available.
Most benches are made for public spaces can be bolted down into the ground. They can be mounted via integral fixing points for easy installation where needed. Other installation options include sub-surface mounting directly into concrete or free-standing without any requirement for fixing.

Recycled plastic benches, like the Citizen Eco bench, can offer maintenance-free seating for public spaces for a lifetime. In general, most benches are designed to last 20+ years outdoors in the right conditions.
