Almost every commercial building in the world uses benches.

The Benefits of Metal Benches

Metal benches offer numerous advantages that make them a common choice for both indoor and outdoor settings. They're durable, resistant to weather, and relatively low maintenance. Metal construction provides unparalleled strength and stability, while powder-coated and thermoplastic finishes are easy to clean and protect against scratches, stains, and UV damage.


Metal benches withstand decades of frequent use without splintering, cracking, or degrading. They also maintain their structural integrity in wet conditions without warping or rotting, making them the perfect garden benches or park benches. These benches are versatile in design yet virtually indestructible in daily use. Add in reasonable cost and the ability to customize their colors and design, and metal becomes an ideal outdoor furniture material that provides comfort with minimal upkeep.


How Durable Are Metal Benches?

Metal benches are extremely durable and built to withstand years of heavy use, even in public spaces. The all-metal construction provides sturdiness and strength, while the thermoplastic or powder-coated finish protects the surface from wear, abrasions, and corrosion. Most quality metal benches have a weight capacity of 500-1500 lbs.


With proper maintenance, which involves simple cleaning and occasional touch-ups for scratches, a metal bench can easily last 25+ years even with daily use. Steel-constructed benches resist decay, cracking, rotting, warping, and damage from exposure that can degrade other types of benches much faster. Metal benches are a long-lasting investment that can easily handle frequent use.


With routine maintenance, you can extend the life of metal benches even further. They should be wiped clean periodically and checked for any signs of rust. If identified early, these issues can be fixed quickly, further strengthening the durability and longevity of your metal bench.


Thermoplastic Coated Steel Benches

Thermoplastic coating involves covering steel with a thick layer of vinyl or polyester-based plastic. This creates a protective barrier against weathering and corrosion. These benches are lightweight yet very sturdy. The plastic coating resists dents, scratches, and abrasions better than paint. It won't chip or peel from regular use. Thermoplastic coating is also UV-resistant, so the color remains vibrant even after years in the sun.


Easy to clean and maintain, thermoplastic benches just need occasional washing with soap and water. Graffiti wipes away easily, and the coating is resistant to salts and oils. With thick, evenly coated thermoplastic, these benches feel smooth to the touch. The coating provides effective insulation against hot and cold temperatures. Thermoplastic steel benches also come in a wide variety of colors to match any decor or landscaping.


Powder Coated Steel Benches

Powder coating involves applying a powdered paint coating using an electrostatic process. The powder particles adhere evenly to the bench, and baking then melts and fuses them into a smooth, durable finish. Textured powder-coated finishes have a lightly textured, matte surface.


Powder-coated steel benches are lightweight and strong. The coating resists scratches and scuffs better than conventional paint, so it won't chip or peel with regular use. Powder coating provides excellent corrosion resistance and UV stability. Easy maintenance is one of the biggest advantages of powder-coated metal benches. They just need occasional washing to keep them clean.


Bench colors are limited compared to thermoplastic, but powder coating allows for a transparent topcoat. This protects with minimal effect on surface appearance.


Important Factors to Consider

If you're having trouble deciding on the right benches for your property, consider these key factors:


  • Cost - Thermoplastic coating generally costs more than powder coating, but thermoplastic finishes are thicker and more durable.
  • Color options - Thermoplastic offers a huge range of standard colors and finishes. Powder coating has fewer standard options, but can be customized.
  • Durability - Both finishes are very durable and ideal for high-traffic areas. Thermoplastic may better resist abrasions.
  • Maintenance - Both require very little maintenance and are easy to clean. Thermoplastic can be power washed, powder coating requires more care.
  • Temperature resistance - Powder-coated benches better resist very high temperatures. The thermoplastic coating may become soft on hot days.
  • Assembly method - Thermoplastic coating allows for welded joints. Powder coating requires mechanical fasteners.


Common Types of Metal Benches

Thermoplastic and powder-coated finishes are suitable for all typical metal bench designs:


  • Classic park bench - Traditional curved armrests and slatted seat/back. Perfect for parks, gardens, and campuses.
  • Garden benches - Simple benches are ideal for gardens, backyards, and landscaped business areas.
  • Café bench - Bench with or without back and armrests. Works well for outdoor dining areas.
  • Recycled benches - Made using recycled materials. Eco-friendly option. Styles vary widely.
  • Custom designs - Benches can be made in nearly any shape and size. Good for unique applications.

Can you leave metal benches outside in the winter?

Yes, both thermoplastic and powder-coated metal benches are fine to leave outside year-round. These benches are made from highly durable materials and feature protective coatings that prevent damage from exposure to cold, snow, and ice. Heavy snow may need to be brushed off to avoid excessive accumulation.

On average, metal benches have a weight capacity of around 500-1000 lbs, depending on the size. Many can support up to 1500 lbs or more. It's easy to find models rated for heavy-duty public use.


How long do metal bench coatings last?
