The concept of the Uniun range is built on the idea that informal seating planter ‘islands’ encourage more social use of spaces than conventional linear forms. With Uniun, seating and planters can be combined, creating green buffers and backdrops between and around seating provision.

Built on a single, common base moulding, which can be flipped and rotated, with or without a lid, the Uniun module can be used for both seating and planters, or subdivided to provide seating and planting in the same module.

Its clever trapezoid geometry offers many different configuration options. From a single common base moulding, we can create 14 different modules, including:

Key features:

  • Readily movable: easy to reconfigure to suit the space
  • Lightweight but tough polyethylene base moulding
  • Available in multiple finish options, including bright colours
  • Height adjustable feet to accommodate variable site levels
  • Freestanding or bolt-down installation

Base Unit

The common bench base unit and planter moulding are UK manufactured in rotationally-moulded LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) and are available in a wide range of colour options. These are all ‘through-colours’ (i.e. not just a surface coating), meaning scuffs will not expose any base material of a different colour, as is the case with coated steel products, for example.

Timber Bench Top:

Bench tops are laminated from Iroko - a West African hardwood that is rich in natural oils and with a ‘Very Durable’ classification. Freshly machined Iroko ranges in colour from a medium brown to pale yellow. Which, if left untreated in an exterior situation, will typically fade to a silver-grey patina within 6-12 months.

As standard, we apply a UV protective finish in a ‘teak’ colour, which helps to retain the natural colouration of Iroko and protect the timber over a longer period. Other colours are available that will more significantly change the appearance of the timber.

To maintain a good long term colouration, we would typically recommend re-coating after 12 months. If preferred, bench tops can be supplied in a natural untreated state, without any finish coat.
