Modern site furnishings add style and function to outdoor spaces, from city squares to corporate buildings, and apartment complexes too. There are five things modern site furnishings should offer:
At TerraCast Products, we make it our mission to deliver all these things and more. For starters, we rely on highly quality materials, and manufacture all our products right here in the US using sustainable processes.
1. Stylish Modern Site Furnishings
Commercial, residential, and public properties rely on modern site furnishings to complement the surrounding style or vibe, while offering functional space for people to sit and gather. For instance, take note of our planters used throughout New York City’s Times Square. Our modern planters outline this busy pedestrian and commercial space, adding a pop of floral color that brings nature to the big city.
Important spaces deserve highly functional site furnishings, and each space has unique needs to consider. For instance, how old is the average person who utilizes the space you are outfitting? If there are more elderly people, make sure to pick benches and chairs with supportive backs, armrests, and other senior-friendly features.
Also, take into consideration the climate and environment furnishings will be exposed to. A metal bench is not going to be very functional in a coastal climate where high moisture and salinity will lead to rust in no time. Instead, one of our thermoplastic-coated benches offers a longer lasting solution.
How long will your new stylish and functional furniture last? This is another important thing to consider. After all, no one wants to replace outdoor site furnishings every few years. Who has time or money for that?!
Look for site furnishings that come with a reliable warranty, one that’s good for more than 6-months to a year. Consider the materials used and manufacturing processes to help determine longevity. Products made overseas in factories with little oversight and cheap materials are less likely to pass the test of time. Seek out products made here in the USA using materials proven to survive exposure to wind, rain, salt, and so forth.
What about stains from graffiti or bird poop? This is yet another reason why materials are so important. Certain materials are porous, which means they absorb everything from graffiti to moisture beneath the first layer in little to no time. Nonporous materials are much harder to penetrate, and as a result, it’s a lot easier to clean stains off. In fact, our non-porous site furnishings can be cleaned of just about anything, including graffiti, with a simple Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Wipe.
The safety of guests, patrons, and employees is of utmost importance. But, did you know that site furnishings can easily turn dangerous? Say for instance they have a sharp edge or weak base. There is always the potential for legal action if someone becomes injured on your property due to faulty site furnishings. Of course, you can’t prevent all accidents, but you can help reduce your risk considerably by investing in high quality site furnishings that are safe and intended for public or commercial use.
Keep in mind, commercial-grade site furnishings must be able to uphold more weight than residential site furnishings to accommodate people of all sizes. Additionally, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) enforces rules and regulations regarding site furnishing accessibility for all.
The option to customize site furnishings? Yes please! At TerraCast Products, you have the option to order standard or custom site furnishings. Add the name of your school or organization, a company logo, or inspirational quote to the back of a bench. We offer a variety of colors, but you can always order a custom shade to represent your brand, style, or mission.
Customized site furnishings have that extra special touch, giving your space a completely unique style that stands out.
