Blue Buddy Bench

Buddy Benches are a wonderful addition to any playground or school yard. The Buddy Bench is considered a “Friendship Bench” that helps children socialize and provides an area that children can go to if they are feeling lonely or left out on the playground. This signals other children that they would like to be included. A Buddy Bench on the playground is highly favored by parents, children and educators.

Our all-steel 8 foot Buddy Bench gives you a choice of a diamond pattern expanded metal or a perforated pattern seat design with kid friendly lettering laser cut into the backrest.

The seats and back are fabricated with a 11 gauge die formed angle frame 1” x 1-7/8” with 3” radius corners. The expanded metal seats are fabricated from ¾” #9 expanded metal and the perforated seats are fabricated from12-gauge plate steel with precision punched every 1-1/8” with ¼” diameter holes. The seats and back are coated with oven fused polyethylene copolymer-based thermoplastic finish and the frame is electrostatically powder coated, oven cured.

The frame is 2-3/8” O.D. x 12-gauge pre-galvanized steel tubing and the tube ends are pre-galvanized steel capped. The portable bench has a 1” O.D. 16-gauge pre-galvanized cross brace. The seat/back support is bent over a mandrel through the bend radius producing a wrinkle free bend.
