During this special year Streetlife is taking a different approach to presenting the new collection of street furniture. New products are being released every week, starting this July, culminating in the distributiion of the new Collection Catalogue in print this autumn.
The Collection 2021-2022 includes the new TWIN concept, introduced last year, and raises ever more attention to sustainable choices for public spaces.
Below are the first brand new products from Streetlife.
The seat of the Rough&Ready (R&R) Odds&Ends Bench is made from waste created during the production of benches in the Streetlife R&R Range. The residual beams are assembled using stainless steel Streetlock® pin connections developed for this. It is in this seat depth, of 50cm, that the R&R Odds&Ends really come into their own and optimum use is made of the residual waste flow. Because the pieces vary in length, a unique and playful pattern is created.
The R&R Odds&Ends Bench is available in both Crosswise and Curved versions. The orientation of the beams provides natural anti-skate protection. Low, high and Royal Back backrest as well as the universal armrest can optionally be mounted on the bench.
The USB Power Charger, a brand new accessory in the Streetlife Collection, is ideal for use on university or corporate campuses, in shopping areas or near bus and train stations. The module is made from glass-bead blasted stainless steel and is placed centrally above the support unit, flush with the seat beam.
The USB Power Charger has an IP67 protection rating, this is partly achieved by encasing the circuit board in resin. The module has a standby function and comes with wiring, which can be fed to the ground via the support unit and is therefore concealed. The local contractor can easily connect it to a 24 V transformer.
The USB Power Charger is available in different sizes which means that almost all Streetlife products can be outfitted with this convenient accessory.
With the Serpentine Bridge, winding bridges are possible. A smart tubular substructure and fencing system can be used to create bridges with a slight curvature. The Serpentine Bridge is ideal for elevated walking routes over, for example, shallow marshlands. The Serpentine design significantly enhances the experience value for users.
Bridge segments have a length of 6m and can be connected with an intermediate support. A variety of fencing types can be mounted on the substructure: Serpentine, Bowie, Solo and Swan. Serpentine Bridges can only be constructed in a flat plane. The maximum load is 5 kN/m2.
Bamboo Brown is made from an extremely fast-growing giant bamboo species which has a remarkably high capacity to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Its fast growth rate ensures that stems can be harvested after four to five years. The process of compressing the long bamboo fibres under high temperature and pressure gives this material its deep brown caramelised colour. Over time, Bamboo Brown ages with exposure to the outdoors, just like wood. The visible fibres afford the smooth surface an attractive variation in colour and structure. Bamboo Brown is carbon neutral and can be recycled. In addition, Bamboo Brown is FSC certified.
