Concept

Large platform formed by wooden slats resting on a robust galvanized steel structure which in turn, if required, supports a metal or wooden backrest. The Nu bench is a classic of the new town planning which allows different compositions to be generated: aligned or single, it generates comfortable resting spaces and orders the urban space.
All the models can incorporate armrests.

Materials and finishes
• Legs
Galvanized steel structure or with plastic coating in light or dark grey (enquire for other colours), composed of round tube legs, a round disk base and longitudinal brace welded to the upper part of the legs.
• Seat, slats and backrest
Seat manufactured with slats of tropical wood with FSC pure certificate with oil in two components, and/or red pine wood treated in the autoclave.
In the models with metal backrest, the latter is in perforated sheet.

Maintenance
Does not require functional maintenance unless it is desired to conserve the original colour of the wood.

Installation
The bench is fixed to the paving with 2 stainless steel screws for each of the two legs.
The bench is delivered dismantled in two or three parts depending on the model, unless specified otherwise.
The bench is delivered with assembly instructions.
