What are Picnic Settings?

Picnic Settings are seats or benches combined with a table that is used for a range of outdoor purposes such as socialising, eating, learning or relaxing with family, friends, classmates or colleagues. Picnic Settings are commonly used in council reserves/parks or educational facilities for eating areas or outdoor learning environments.

  • So what picnic setting would best suit you? There are many aspects to consider when choosing a picnic setting. These could include:
  • Proximity to salt water – if near salt water or salty air you are likely to require stainless steel frames.
  • High UV rated areas – You may require aluminium slats or some other slat that will not breakdown with extended exposure to high UV sunlight.
  • The Demographics of users – small children may require lower benches, older students may require heavier duty benches, public areas should have low maintenance benches and table tops.
  • The aesthetics of the area – Aluminium Settings look more industrial where timber slat styles will give a more modern look. Within the Area Safe range we have a variety of modern, traditional and industrial styles to choose from.
  • DDA compliance – The ‘Disability Discrimination Act 1992’ which covers all aspects of disabled access in public places includes indoor and outdoor furniture. Mostly if the picnic setting is to be installed in a public space it will require wheel chair access. See here for further info on DDA compliant picnic settings.

AS Urban also provide a great range of café umbrellas that are compatible to most of the picnic settings.

Custom fabricated picnic settings are also available from Area Safe. This could include change in slat colour or style (timber, composite plastic, aluminium), slat size change, overall setting size change or framework colour or size change. In the past AS Urban has changed the colour of the steel frames to various different colours which look great, especially in school environments.
