Around suburban Wellington, in New Zealand, public seating at bus stops, outside schools and elsewhere has been transformed in recent months, with several installations of Metal Art’s Wakefield benches. By combining Replas’ recycled plastic slats with Metal Art’s robust metal framing, the Wakefield ticks all the boxes for practicality, value and sustainability.

The Wakefield will stay looking good for longer than timber benches and never needs a coat of paint. With recycled-plastic slats available in green, grey, brown and blue, steel parts powder coated to colour of choice, and available in a variety of lengths, the Wakefield bench is the ideal compact seating solution for busy pedestrian precincts.
