Concrete benches have become an increasingly popular choice for urban furnishings and outdoor spaces. In modern urban design, concrete is gaining favor among designers and city administrators for good reason.
These sturdy structures offer undeniable advantages, including extreme strength, durability and a modern aesthetic.
Continue reading this article to explore the features and prices of concrete benches, with a focus on LAB23’s catalog and available models.
Characteristics of Concrete: Benches and Other Urban Furnishings
Concrete is a highly regarded material in architecture, primarily known for its solidity and stability. Benches and other structures made from this material can more easily withstand weather conditions and daily wear and tear without significant damage over time.
Additionally, concrete benches require minimal maintenance, making them ideal for outdoor use in public spaces such as parks, squares and pedestrian areas.
Another undeniable advantage is that they do not require painting or special treatment to keep them in good condition. This translates to extremely low long-term operating costs, which becomes an important consideration for many local administrations and communities.
Concrete Benches: Prices
But how much does a concrete bench cost? The prices of concrete benches can vary significantly based on the design, dimensions and product specifications. However, as we have seen, in the long term, these benches represent a cost-effective investment due to their durability and low maintenance costs.
In LAB23’s online catalog, you can find numerous urban elements made of concrete, suitable for various needs and budgets.
