Many site furniture manufacturers offer tubular styles of picnic tables to deliver a certain look and at certain price points; however, very few offer a complete complementary family of products. The Pipeline Park Bench bridges that gap by matching existing picnic tables already present in the marketplace, but also rounds out a complete family of products specifically designed around this look.
There are striking similarities with each member of this family. The leg-end frame shape of the bench legs matches the side profile of the picnic table and the bike rack. The same lumber profile is consistent on the benches and table, providing a similar motif, and in the event of damage, it makes replacing boards easy. Important to note, the lightweight all-aluminum construction has the obvious benefits of lower maintenance, durability, corrosion resistance, and movability compared to traditional steel frames.
There are a couple subtle design features that make this bench unique. One is that the backrest has been intentionally designed to not be attached to the armrests. This gives a typically rigid backrest just the right amount “spring”; enhancing the overall seating experience. Secondly, the seat armrest positioning has been designed to discourage skate boarders. They protrude enough to make it difficult to “grind” the leading edge of the seat section.
