The reliable performance of our plastisol coated legs and metal frame will ensure safety and stability over the years. The seats are guaranteed not to sag in the center. As with all Premier Polysteel products, our Buddy Benches are entirely coated with UV stable, mildew resistant plastisol (poly-vinyl). Furthermore, the surfaces will never get too hot from the sun! The 1/8+ inch layer of plastisol is bonded directly to the metal so rust will NEVER be a problem. High wind, rain, sand, salty air, and humid conditions are no match for this bench because of our process of coating the entire product. This coating protects from rust and corrosion! In addition, we offer a 20-year best-in-industry warranty! Show your school pride! Choose a Buddy Bench in one (or two!) of twelve popular colors! This continues to be a time-tested winner!

  • Whenever necessary, clean with a power washer or hose using mild soap, and finish with a bleach-free disinfectant. That’s it!
  • The classic diamond-shaped openings of the coated expanded metal seats allow the bench to dry quickly after a rain.
  • Best of all – we offer an industry-leading 20 Year Warranty!

Special Features

  • The 4″ x 6″ aluminum plate has a brass finish. Your personal message will have a clean and clear look due to this heat-pressed process.
  • The heavy-duty metal design of the bench ensures that it will remain stable and will not sag in the center.
  • The Supreme style seat is a full 5 inches deeper than the standard bench depth.
  • The openings in the seat allow the bench to dry quickly after a rain.
  • A thick layer of UV stable, mold-resistant plastisol coats our products from top to bottom. This UV stable, mold-resistant coating protects the metal bench from harsh environmental elements.
