Products used ASF 502 cast iron and timber seat - 3m
 
 

ASF were asked to produce the popular ASF 502 cast iron and timber seat, but at a 3m overall length.

This seat is designed to be 1.8 metres overall length, and whilst we could use longer timbers to extend this, anything much over 2 metres would not be suitable for use, leaving the timbers springy and unsupported which would significantly lower their expected lifespan.

Using an intermediate arm/leg casting allowed us to manufacture a 3 metre long seat made up of 2 conjoined 1.5 metre seat pans. These are not only a practical solution to a problem, but they look great too. The scale of the chunky cast iron seat ends and intermediate casting works well with the increased size of the seats.

The end result was a bank of 14, 3 metre long seats that fit the brief perfectly in this famous Yorkshire Dales Market Town.

These intermediate castings could also be used to create faceted seats by cutting the timber ends to a mitred finish, or producing curved or circular seats by using bent or profiled timbers.
