Cast iron shaped seating

CIS Street Furniture has, over a number of years, manufactured many seats to differing designs and configurations. Our Technical Department is able to both design, advise and help with all your requirements.

All timber (managed forestation hardwood as standard) is treated prior to delivery with 2 coats of Sikkens HLSO wood preservative. Standard timber is Iroko but alternatives are available including European Oak, Ash, Sapele, Utile and Western Red Cedar.

Cast ends are supplied in the more popular cast iron. Alternatively ductile iron and aluminium are also available. For the majority, a cast iron seat is normally robust enough for all but the most demanding situations. Every seat supplied as standard is fully finished with metal/castings painted using our airless spray two pack epoxy acrylic system, in the full BS or RAL colour range.

When designing a project using hexagonal, octagonal or circular seats, it may be worth remembering that level ground should be used. If there are multiple slopes involved this will upset the jointing of the seat leading to unsightly gaps in the timber or ultimately after a period of time fracture may occur.

Circular seating is a most striking way of achieving a focal point. Timbers are specially curved to accommodate a radius of your choice. The practical minimum radius possible is 700mm (internal measured from the back of seat). There is no limit (other than your budget) as to how large this seat can be manufactured. Both full and half sections are available.

Curved seats are a less expensive option to full circular seat systems (dependant upon size). Our type 512 is particularly suitable for this purpose and is available as a part curve or semi circle, formed to a radius of your choice.
