Heavy-Heavy (H-H) Benches are massive, heavy-duty benches created to reflect Streetlife’s characteristic natural look. The heavy wooden beams of Upcycled Hardwood have a cross section of 14x21 cm – 5.5”x8.2”. The beams are attached to galvanised steel or CorTen supports by means of the stainless steel Streetlock® system.
The backrests are multifunctional and can be used as lean-supports, seating, table tops, etc. The backrests can be linked together just like the benches in order to create a longer piece.
Heavy-Heavy Top Seats may be mounted on an existing base and can transform concrete retaining walls, stairs or old walls into benches.
H-H beams are made from two different sustainable materials: Upcycled Hardwood and Lava Grey. Lava Grey consists entirely of recycled household plastic waste.
Length: modules of 234 and 300 cm – 92”and 118”
The TWIN Concept
Innovations in the field of sustainable materials, including biobased substances and composites made from residual waste, provide opportunities to make the Streetlife Collection more sustainable. Based on these innovations, Streetlife’s TWIN concept offers a series of sustainable materials which provide alternatives to the original hardwood options. By adding this new identity to our product families, the TWIN concept offers landscape designers and architects more freedom of choice.
TWIN option for this product
Lava Grey is made entirely from recycled household plastic waste, such as packaging, cups, bags and trays. It consists of around 75% recycled PE and 25% recycled PP. This new anthracite grey substance has a fairly rough texture. In certain places, the surface reveals how the material fl owed into the mould during the casting process, like a lava stream. Pieces of coloured plastic are visible here and there in the grey mass, highlighting the origin of the recycled material. Colour and texture may vary in North America due to local production.
