A modular bench of generous dimensions and special ergonomic characteristics essentially defined by its individual seating, which consists of a metallic structure embedded within a half-rigid polyurethane foam. This construction enhances resistance to heavy duty use and to vandalism. A single bar forms each set to which two support feet, seat and the backrest are attached. This central bar remains totally hidden, giving the set an impeccable and elegant visual aspect, since it is not left any element of fixation at sight (screws, rivets, etc.) All the structural components are made of aluminum, and armrests and foot of injected aluminium. This prevents rusting and ensures easy maintenance. Quality and resistance of used materials give to the seat a high durability and no need of maintenance. The seat is formed by an embedded metallic structure totally recovered with semi-rigid polyurethane. In his central part it also incorporates a semi-rigid cushion of PUR with a type of structure that confers an elastic behavior, providing a great sensation of comfort. This central element allows personalizing the product modifying its pigmentation or covering it with natural leather or vinyl. Backrest is designed in the same way. Both backrest and seat are assembled, by inserting them in common cylindrical tie rods to the bar. This provides an extremely simple and effective fixation. Any element can be replaced with extreme simplicity. It can incorporate armrests made with an aluminum structure recovered by polyurethane. The arms are fixed to the seat and to the backrest. Seat and backrest are offered in black, blue-gray or garnet polyurethane, and can incorporate vinyl or leather upholstery. The seat and backrest perimeter supports appear always in black semi-rigid polyurethane. Bar, support feet and arms, are finished in standard RAL 9007TX Terminal table is offered as an option.
