STRAIGHT BENCHES

Straight Benches
made of metal

Gerade Sitzbänke für städtische Plätze oder Hausgärten

The requirements in the public space are as individual as the variety of our benches for street furniture: with open or closed corpus, straight or round, with backrest side rest or even without, made of the different materials Corten steel, stainless steel or color-coated, with bench seat cover made of wood, natural fibers or with warming plastic coating, with lighting…

What all our metal benches have in common is that their materials and construction are designed to last a long time. Furthermore they can be easily adapted to the individual requirements of the client – e.g. length, width and equipment. This is possible because Gartenmetall® designs, constructs and manufactures all garden benches and street furniture for public areas itself.

With the shapely and elegant metal benches from Gartenmetall® you can bring more quality of stay into city centers, parks and squares and connect people with each other. Please do not hesitate to ask for your individual quote: contact

Dimensions for benches

Our benches have several standard dimensions that have proven to be useful in practice. Most benches have a comfortable seat height of 475 mm and a seat depth of 490 mm. You can find more detailed information in our product info where you will also find a checklist as a guide for planning.
We manufacture all benches ourselves so special dimensions are no problem. You can ask our customer support team about this: Contact

Dimensions benches

Bench length

The bench length is determined by the length of the front edge. It may be different from the length of the seat rests due to the design.

Seat depth

The seat depth should be at least 400 mm with backrests. With stool benches, the depth can be up to more than 500 mm. As a typical seat depth has been well‐proven in practice 490 mm.

Seat height

There is no official standard for the height of the benches. We recommend a seat height of 420 mm to 490 mm in public areas. By standard, our benches are designed with a seat height of 475 mm. This also allows seniors to stand up more easily. If the bench is to be integrated into the floor, the seat height must be increased accordingly.

Round benches

For round benches, the length of the front edge and the opening angle are specified. his requires the information whether the front edge in the radius is outside or inside.

Sitzbänke – Technik und Optionen

We have almost perfected the technical details of the benches thanks to our long-term experience. Seat rests are screwed from below, backrests are made to match the design of the bench and the integrated lighting puts everything in the best light.

Seat rests
The seat rests are screwed to a stainless steel cross‐batten from below, so that no fastening screws are visible from above or laterally in the wood. The complete seat surface is screwed onto the substructure with screws between the seat rests. This allows accessibility for maintenance at any time. Screwing into the wood from below can also be done with the high‐quality Gartenmetall® LOCK system. This particularly stable technology has been statically proven with its own approval (ETA 11/0212 dated 12.10.2016).

Graphic Technology Seat Rests

Floor fixing for benches
Every bench should be stable and secure on the floor. Several variants are conceivable: with lugs to screw it down or make the bench so heavy that it is almost impossible to move it without tools. f the substructure is designed as a volume of metal, filling it with sand or moraine gravel is a good way to increase the weight and thus the stability. When integrating in the ground, pay attention to the seat height and increase if necessary when ordering!

Graphic floor mounting

Backrest for benches (option)
Backrests extend the stool bench to a real bench and are the basis for relaxed sitting. Height: approx. 350 mm, leaning angle approx. 20°. The length of the backrests can be freely determined independently of the length of the seat rest. A possible asymmetry often gives the seating element that special “kick”. Maximum distance between two holders depends on material and cross‐section. In most cases the distance between two holders is less than < one meter. The holders are included in the price per metre.

Graphic backrest

Integrated lighting (option)
The benches can be designed to create an atmospheric atmosphere. There are two options: For benches with a solid substructure, the LED lighting track can be installed on the long side of the solid corpus. Distance to corner 250 mm in each case. For benches with an open corpus, the light strip can also be mounted under the seat rest.

Material Sitzauflage

The dimensions and position of the seat bars have a significant influence on the entire look of the bench. In general, we recommend an even and symmetrical positioning. There are different dimensions depending on the material. In general, we stay free for all other dimensions – depending on availability. The following materials are possible:

Example metal surface: Corten steel, also called weatherproof structural steel.

Sitz- und Liegeinsel als besondere Bank

In the middle of the schoolyard in Nürtingen, a seven-metre-long and three-metre-wide island for sitting and lying invites you to relax.
The base of the large pedestal is made of Corten steel and the seat rest of the weather-resistant and durable natural fibre composite RESYSTA®. The rest was mounted as a complete package on the base so no screws are visible. This minimises the risk of injury and prevents vandalism.
