The Soft Touch

Landscape Structures' new line of site furnishings are coated in TenderTuff PVC to provide a soft texture and added durability. The new benches, picnic tables and litter receptacles come in a choice of four TenderTuff colors: red, tan, brown and blue. The painted surfaces are finished with a choice of 15 super-durable TGIC polyester powder coat colors. Landscape Structures has also added an ADA-accessible picnic table, the top of which extends out 10 inches beyond the benches to allow a person in a wheelchair to pull up to either end.

Go Green

A simple, cost-effective and value-adding method of earning green building credits is to install bike racks and lockers. Provide convenience and security for the growing number of two-wheeled travelers, while encouraging alternative transportation, which reduces road congestion and pollution. New durable coatings for bike racks won't scratch or chip, while lockers made of hardened high-tech polymer and fiberglass alloys eliminate corrosion and are stronger than milled steel. Attractive new inverted-U racks can be functional art while allowing cyclists to secure and support their bicycles. Innovative designs such as vertical storage racks for use inside buildings increase storage capacity and efficiency.
