Commercial Outdoor Benches

Outdoor benches from Canaan are an essential part of any public spaces. A well-placed outdoor bench does not only enhance the functionality of the space, but also provides an opportunity for visitors to appreciate its surrounding.

Providing both comfort and durability, Canaan’s outdoor metal benches are made of iron, steel or aluminum completed with powder-coating; their superior resistance to corrosion makes the benches ideal for high-traffic areas such as streets, bus stops, parks, or building surroundings. They are also great for those who wants to renovate their own backyard or patio by having customized benches.

Outdoor recycled plastic benches are another attractive way to enhance the landscape of your park, business or outdoor area. Recycled plastic lumber does not rod, chip, fade and is highly resistant to insect damage; they have the warm, inviting look of wood with the physical advantages of plastic, making them an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional wood benches.

Canaan’s outdoor benches are available in different length and colors. Personalize them with a memorial plaque for a unique appearance. Our sales representative will be happy to assist you in selecting the perfect seating for your needs.  We also welcome custom orders in various materials and shapes.

ADA Compliance

Canaan provides consumers with accessibility and ADA compliance regulated site furnishings for different types of consumers to be included in their community. We have researched different ADA and AODA compliances in multiple cities across North America before coming up with the designs to make sure our furnishings will fit everyone’s needs.

The standard requirements for benches to comply with Americans with Disabilities (ADA) is not specified, we instead followed the standard for benches to be AODA compliant. Example requirements is to have ample backrest and armrest. The armrest provides ease of ingress and egress for the user. The bench should have a minimum seat height of 405 mm-500 mm from the ground and a backrest with an estimated height of 450 mm. The armrest should be an estimate of 150 mm from the seat. These measurements allows easy transfer for the user. The benches should be located to one side of public walkways or paths and should be mounted on a firm and level base.

Installing the bench should also be AODA compliant, where a space should be available beside the bench for at least one person using a wheelchair or a scooter. The minimum clearance should be an are of 1015 mm by 1220 mm. That said space should have a firm base to hold the weight of the person on the wheelchair or scooter.
