Powder coating is an excellent design choice for benches that will protect them for years to come. The holidays are full of accidents and outside playtime. Make your metal benches perfect for family gatherings by using powder coating.
What Does Winter Do to Metal?
As the temperatures drop, metal becomes freezing to the touch. Metal furniture that lives outside may become unbearable cold. Powder coating is an excellent way to make your metal furniture usable in the winter. Powder coated benches will be cold but will not be freezing to the touch like other painted metals. Additionally, metal furniture that is left unprotected can accumulate rust throughout the winter. Unless the temperatures jump well-above freezing, any water or snow left on metal will turn into rust. Powder coating will protect your metal benches from rust and decay.
Create a Backyard Oasis
Winter is usually the time to stay indoors. However, if you have a family with kids, you know that cold weather will not stop them from playing outside for hours. Give them a safe place to rest during their time outside with powder coated benches. Avoid pulling all their warm layers off whenever they want to sit down on something not frozen. Enjoy your hot chocolate from the safety of your powder coated benches and watch your kids revel in the snow.
Easy to Clean Snow From in Winter
As we already talked about, water will adhere to metal in freezing temperatures. In the holiday classic, A Christmas Story, a child is triple-dog-dared to lick a metal pole during recess. Unfortunately, his tongue gets stuck to the pole. The moisture on the surface of his tongue turned to ice when he touched the pole. Because the body warms the tongue constantly, it sends blood to where the ice is on his tongue. Metal absorbs heat, making it impossible for his tongue to melt the ice that is adhering his tongue to the pole. Pour warm water over it, and the ice will melt, freeing the tongue. Avoid any mishaps with your metal benches by investing in powder coating. It helps keep water and snow from adhering to the metal, making your bench usable throughout the winter.
