4/2013 – Don’t stand, sit down! Terraforce Seating options

When it comes to sitting down, we all want to do so comfortably. Unfortunately, public and community seating solutions are often expensive and time consuming to install, leaving such spaces underdeveloped due to lacking funds. As a result, there is big demand for durable seating, that can be installed in a cost-effective and easy manner, while still meeting statutory requirements of comfort and safety.

This is especially true in developing nations where infrastructure requirements still need to catch up with the demands of modern society.

Terraforce Seating, a locally developed product, the Terraforce 4 x 4 multi seating system, a combination of an accessory stair/seating block and any standard Terraforce retaining block , has become popular in South Africa and other parts of the world for the above reasons, and is used successfully at recreational or educational facilities. The system requires low hardware input for manufacture, low transport costs and low inventory requirements at sales outlets. As an added benefit, the completed seating arrangements also offer a high-quality aesthetic finish.

The following images depict a few such installations that have been completed recently:
