Why Aluminium Seating Is The Smart Choice For Schools


Increasingly, aluminium is the popular choice of outdoor furniture for schools and universities due to its extremely hard-wearing and long-lasting qualities.

One of the great things about aluminium seating and tables units is that they can be on-ground-bolted or concreted into a slab, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and environments, including:

  • Schools
  • Universities
  • Public parks
  • Commercial buildings
  • Transit shelters
  • Grandstands
  • Hospitals

Lightweight and flexible

The lightweight properties of aluminium seating units mean that any free-standing pieces can be moved to different zones within the school depending on the need or occasion. Aluminium bench seating can be easy to integrate into any school, educational environment or park, creating a relaxing student-friendly space for the entire school community.  

Bringing learning outdoors

Creating comfortable outdoor learning environments has become increasingly important over the years as we prioritise students school lives – providing places to learn, play, socialise and relax on school grounds. Bringing the classroom outdoors and providing ample outdoor seating arrangements has a range of benefits for students, supporting their learning, social skills and overall health.

While most lessons take place in a classroom, outdoor areas can also serve as a beneficial learning environment. The outdoors can provide a relaxed and comfortable learning environment as everyone has an innate urge to be in and connect to nature. By providing students with the option to spend some of their classes outdoors in a space furnished with outdoor furniture, students can satisfy this need. There are many advantages to outdoor classes, and with an appropriately equipped outdoor space, teachers and students alike can benefit from working in nature.

Low-cost and virtually maintenance-free

Robust, attractive and versatile, aluminium outdoor furniture is low-cost and virtually maintenance-free. It will provide many years of cost-effective service for schools and universities, making it extremely good value for money and the smart choice for cost efficiency.

The key features of aluminium outdoor furniture solutions are:

  • Will not rust
  • Strong and durable
  • Eco-sustainable
  • Disability friendly
  • Ground bolted
  • Stands up to harsh weather conditions
  • Low-cost maintenance
