Planters with bench – a perfect combination for public spaces

The combination of plant trough with bench offers very special possibilities for open space design. With our bench-planter trough combination, the urban planner can create seating and green areas even in small public squares – and in a harmonious overall concept. Depending on the planting and the season, the planting area even provides shade for the seating area.

The plant troughs with bench are designed in shape, size and equipment to meet the diverse requirements of the public space. With the bench, the focus is not only on seating comfort and space arrangement but also on the robustness of the materials. The basic body is made of classically beautiful Corten steel, of easy-care stainless steel or of colour-coated stainless steel in RAL or DB colour shades according to your wishes. You can choose between RESYSTA®, hardwood or KEBONY® for the seat cover. As all pieces are produced to order, we can supply custom-fit planter/bench combinations for your town hall or railway station forecourt, for the pedestrian zone or for other urban squares.

For particularly flexible installation, the troughs have crane lugs in the four corners to which woody plants can also be attached. As with the mobile tree planters, forklift openings ensure easy transport, e.g. at city festivals or markets. More ideas from the STREET FURNITURE category can be found here.

Series Planters with Bench

Every inner-city area is different and the requirements for the planter-seat combination are also different. In the following, we present our series, which differ in shape and in the number and arrangement of the seating surfaces. But we are also happy to manufacture special shapes and dimensions. Feel free to contact us or send us your hand sketch.

Common to all benches is the classic seat height of 475 mm and the comfortable seat depth of 490 mm. The planters are slightly higher than the bench at 500 mm as standard. The troughs are edged all around to prevent injury. The seat surface is screwed on from below so that no screws are visible on the seat surface. This prevents vandalism and the risk of injury.

A water-permeable base is installed as standard in the metal plant troughs. This ensures that excess water drains off in a defined manner and that even in heavy rain no waterlogging can occur. Root insulation panels made of rigid polystyrene foam (XPS) protect the root area of the planting from heat and frost.
