Environmentally Friendly Design

Manufactured using recycled material slats, the Vistra Seat is an environmentally friendly seating option. Offering a choice between Enviropol® and Timberpol®, both materials contain a large proportion of recycled materials and come with a host of other benefits.

    Enviropol Material:

First introduced by Glasdon in 1993, Enviropol material predominantly contains post-consumer and industrial polythene. Due to the significant advances in the control and separation of waste, Glasdon maintains strict controls over the recycled waste materials used to produce Enviropol to ensure that they only use those with the required physical properties to manufacture premium recycled content.

Containing 98% recycled content, Enviropol is strong, weather-resistant and ensures a long, virtually maintenance-free service life. Resistant to chemical attack and impervious to water, frost, and most corrosive substances, Enviropol is an ideal alternative to virgin materials and is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life.

Enviropol slats are available in black or brown.

    Timberpol Material:

Made from 95% recycled and sustainably sourced raw materials, Timberpol is a wood/polymer composite containing 55% wood (reclaimed sawdust) and 40% polymer (post-consumer HDPE).

Designed to have a wood-like appearance, Timberpol doesn't splinter and is knot-free. Timberpol will also never require painting or varnishing.

Timberpol slats are available in dark grey or light brown.

Durable and Long-Lasting

Designed to be durable and long-lasting, the Vistra Seat utilises a steel support frame and rigid construction to provide overall strength, reduced likelihood of bowing and protection against vandalism. An Armortec coating finish on the cast aluminium seat ends limits the impact of scratches while offering a long-lasting corrosion and weather-resistant seating solution with minimal maintenance requirements.

The seat also features plastic anti-vandal cover caps to protect it from vandalism and comes with concrete surface fixing bolts as standard.

Personalisation

As with most Glasdon street furniture, the Vistra Seat allows for personalisation, offering the option to incorporate a laser-etched commemorative plaque if required. Laser etching offers greater flexibility for messages and can even incorporate small and simple graphics.
