Pull up a picnic table – made from 100% recycled plastic

Pull up a picnic table – made from 100% recycled plastic

After a wet and rather grey winter, spring is finally here. As the days lengthen and get warmer (and hopefully drier), people emerge from spending much of their time indoors, eager to get out and about after the long period of winter-induced hibernation.

What do you think of in springtime? Daffodils? Blossom? Lighter evenings? Walks and days out? Cycle rides? Whatever kind of weather Spring 2020 sends our way, outdoor visitor attractions, stately homes, theme parks and gardens start opening their doors to the public. And with the warmer weather comes the resurrection of one of the great British traditions - the picnic.

Sitting in comfort

Let’s face it, it’s all very well sitting on the damp grass on your picnic blanket, but it’s so much more comfortable sitting at a picnic table and bench – which is one of the reasons why Amberol has expanded its range of benches and picnic tables in time for Spring/Summer 2020.

You might not even have realised that Amberol supply benches and tables. And even if you did, you might not appreciate their great environmental credentials. In fact, all our picnic tables and benches are made from 100% recycled plastic, making them a fantastic eco-conscious choice.

Why buy Amberol’s environmentally friendly benches and tables?

In addition to being a greener choice, Amberol’s recycled plastic furniture is:

  • Tough and durable: it won’t crack or dry out and is resistant to attacks by insects
  • Vandal-resistant thanks to its graffiti resistant surface
  • Low maintenance as it doesn’t require painting, varnishing or long-term maintenance
  • Splinter free

Take a seat with Amberol

Used in public places, theme parks, on high streets, in playgrounds, schools and a wide variety of other locations, the Amberol range of 100% recycled plastic furniture includes:

  • Backless benches including sports benches, often chosen for use at bus and train stations as well as at leisure centres, schools and sports field.
  • Backed benches with metal or plastic legs ideal for use in parks, shopping centres, gardens, picnic areas and on the high street – in fact, pretty much anywhere.

Picnic tables by Amberol

To complement the range of eco-friendly plastic benches, Amberol also supply A frame picnic tables in different styles and sizes making them suitable for a wide variety of outdoor spaces:

  • The Adult Picnic Table
  • The Junior Picnic Table
  • The Game Picnic table which has a chequer board top for games making it a great addition to the playground or park
  • the Flexi Picnic Table which includes an ample space for wheelchair users

While many outdoor tables and benches are made from wood, which can splinter and often requires frequent varnishing to ensure protection from the elements, Amberol’s recycled plastic benches and tables can withstand almost anything that the unpredictable British climate can throw at them.

What form of plastic are the benches and tables made from?

The benches and tables are made from a black recycled polythene waste (often used in the agricultural industry as silage wrap). The polyethylene is manufactured by British Polythene Industries (BPI) - the largest recycler of polythene in Europe.

You can also request a no-obligation demonstration at a convenient location to see for yourself how well Amberol’s 100% recycled plastic benches and picnic tables could fit into your surroundings.
