Model Number: Buddy-6 (6ft) Buddy-5 (5ft)
Our colourful, distinct buddy bench is a simple idea to reduce loneliness and foster new friendships on the playground.
Alternatively known as “friendship benches” these are special places to sit when a child feels the need for a friend to talk to. Usually located in well-traversed and open areas, when a child sits on this bench other children and staff will see this a sign that some support or comfort is needed. From seemingly small matters to more serious concerns, a Buddy Bench encourages children to ask for help when they need it most.
This bench has a lot going for it…
Its economical with a price point many schools or communities can afford. The design and overall construction have been proven now for years to stand up to the rigours people and the environment can throw at it. The recycled plastic lumber does not support and fungus or algae and does not require any special cleaners to keep it clean. Its bright recycled plastic lumber slats stand out and adds colour to any space it occupies.
Ideal also in indoor applications such as elementary schools. The 16 inch seat height is comfortable for children and the low centre of gravity make it virtually impossible to tip over. The custodial staff are not apposed to having the bench either as its easy to move around for cleaning as the all plastic leg ends don’t scuff up the floors.
Lastly every bench helps clean up the environment. Every bench helps divert over 150 lbs of recycled plastics from the waste stream.
