The RailRoad Edge benches from Furnitubes have been selected for Sun Pier in Chatham. Sun Pier, located on the River Medway, has been a prominent feature of Chatham’s historic waterfront since its construction in the 1860s.
Recent improvements have included repairs to the pier boarding and perimeter railings, and the provision of seating so that visitors can rest while awaiting their boat mooring, and also take time to enjoy the surroundings.
RailRoad Edge was the chosen seating solution, with the repeating timber slats of the seating platform complementing the linearity of the pier decking. The steel supports were supplied in a galvanised only finish to offer a long term durable solution in this potentially aggressive riverside environment.
Two benches were installed, each comprising a starter and end unit to create 3.25m long seating to accommodate up to seven people, and double that if used from both sides as a perch seat. It is hoped that Sun Pier will once again become a focal point to Chatham’s riverside rejuvenation in years to come.
