There is a confusing array of seats of this kind available, which all look similar at a glance.
Our thirty years experience in the municipal market has led us to offer standard weight and heavyweight designs, both of which are suitable for uses within the public domain.
We do not manufacture lightweight versions of these seats, which are principally aimed at the domestic market.
Though traditional in appearance, these seats are particularly heavily constructed in iroko or seasoned European oak (see the Materials, Finishes & Fastenings page) and possess special features to reduce their suscepti bility to damage.
These seats are frequently specified for commemorative purposes for which several types of plaque are available.
All seats in the Traditi onal Range are fitted with decorative corner spandrels as standard.
All timber dimensions have been subtly increased from those normally found on seats of this type, parti cularly in the heavyweight designs.
Dark Oak Stain
The iroko seats in our Traditional range are planed and sanded as standard, and have the timber graded to help reduce the degree of colour variation. To enhance their appearance, and to give them a more even colour, they can be finished in a dark oak coloured spirit based wood stain, if required.
The wood stain enhances the appearance of these seats only for the first few months after installation, and will fade due to its exposure to sunlight and rain.
If left untreated most of the wood stain will have disappeared after about 12 months and the seat will then be a light ash grey colour.
It will remain this colour if left untreated. If the condition of the seats is reviewed at six monthly intervals and wood stain applied, this will help to maintain the original colour the seat had when it was delivered.
