Concept

As with our “il conico” range, we were concerned to take into account the various roles that planters play in public spaces. “the frame” is available in three sizes. A stable angle steel frame structure offers plenty of edge protection and enables the planter to be relocated without removing its contents. The adjustable base enables the planter to be situated on uneven ground. We offer an approx. 100-litre water tank as an optional extra. Furthermore, the surface of “the frame”'s four sides can be decorated with 3D reliefs, should customers wish to give their planters a personal touch.

Planter
“the frame” is made in three dimesions and from high quality granite polymers. This material is composed of 85% granite gravel and 15% polyester resine. This is a high density composite. Even at a minimum thickness it provides a maximum of stability, saving both raw material and weight. Granite polymer is weather and UV resistant. It is also resistant to acids such as acid rain and dog urine. The surface is lightly sandblasted, giving “the frame” it’s authentic granite look. Dirt can be easily removed with steam- or sandblasting.

Volumes
”the frame” offers a volume of 0,6-0,8 m3. It is designed to accomodate ground covers and plants up to a height of 2-4 m. So it offers enough place also for small trees.

Holder
A sturdy steel holder protects the planter and provides a number of other useful functions. The planters rim is protected by a large metal frame. Legs made of solid steel angles make it possible to transport the planter with a fork-lift. The holder can also be securely fastened to the ground. In case of uneven surfaces the legs can be adjusted to level the planter. All metal parts are made of hot galvanised steel and covered with a special teflon coating. The colour tone is approx. RAL 7012.

Colour
The planter is available in a middle grey granite colour.

Water-Tank
An optional water-tank is also available. Additional information are available upon request.
