Plaswood has launched a new Hero range of picnic tables, raised beds and planters that twin style with sustainability to help transform external spaces with elegant but durable statement furniture.
The new, lighter weight range of Plaswood tables and raised beds is made of recycled plastic and boasts a unique new design that allows for easier assembly with a semi-fabricated option. The new range provides landscape professionals, local authority specifiers, garden centre, builder’s merchant buyers and outdoor hospitality managers with a product that is re-made with the environment in mind. And that’s why we named it a Hero range.
The new range also taps into the rising trend across the UK and mainland Europe for more outdoor entertainment and communal public spaces. The Hero tables maximise flexibility, coming in elegant rectangular or curvaceous circular forms, including playful touches such as activity table tops for children. The series has a clean design ethos and stylish finishing.
As Katherine Lorek-Wallace, Plaswood General Manager explains: “A key objective of the Hero range was to increase products environmental credentials, by minimising waste and reducing product weight for a user friendly assembly process, and we succeeded. Our innovative approach allowed us to develop a new range of modular picnic tables and raised beds offering saving in assembly time. This makes the fabrication process more efficient and gives a welcoming quality to customers looking to enhance their outdoors spaces with a maintenance free, stylish furniture piece holding strong environmental credentials.”
The family of furniture includes: an Adult and Junior size picnic table, Activity top tables, a Round family size picnic table and a Wheelchair access table. A selection of modular planters and raised beds complement the range.
All items come fully or semi-assembled and can be fabricated in a few easy steps. The Round picnic table, for example, is now available part assembled, reducing the amount of space required for transportation from four to one pallet space. All Plaswood products are strong, durable and waterproof, they will not dry, crack or splinter.
