Street furniture by Apex Shelters include a wide range of benches, seats, pic-nic tables, cycle racks and many more options. The usual specification for a typical Kappa Street Furniture Bench, as seen in the photo, is as follows.
Fixing: Surface mounting lugs or submerged fixing
Finish: Hot Dipped Galvanised or Polyester Powder Coated*
Polyester Powder Coating
Powder coating has excellent outdoor exposure qualities, as well as offering an attractive consistent appearance in a variety of colours. This means a long lasting color for your street furniture products.
The importance of the finish is not only the visible top coat, but, equally, the pre-treatment of the steelwork. All Apex products are shot blast to SA2.5 to degrease the surface and provide a key for the subsequent processes. The steel is then etch primed with Zinc Phosphate anti-corrosive Primer then the final coat of Polyester Powder is electrostatically sprayed onto the surface to a thickness of 80 – 110 microns. The treated steelwork is then heat-cured, melting the Polyester Powder into a continuous phase and bonding it into the steelwork. Polyester Powder Coating provides a high durability and high resistance to weathering plus excellent colour stability.
