Public seats provide people with the functions of rest, conversation and entertainment, while flower boxes not only play an important role in keeping the public environment clean and comfortable but also reflect the good appearance of urban civilization. Therefore, it is of great significance to the design of seating and floral boxes in the public environment. In the process of design and use, it is especially important to select materials, which plays a crucial role in the service life and user experience of seats and flower boxes. At present, plastic wood composite materials are widely used in various fields because of their many excellent properties. In order to provide some reference for the application and promotion of plastic and wood composite materials in the design of a public building environment.
Design And Materials of Public Seats
The form of public seat is divided into strip seat, square seat, circular seat, single concave seat, multi concave seat and arc seat, etc. Different types of seats have different functions and occasions. For example, a single concave seat is composed of two bar seats, with the two bar seats at 90°. It is more suitable for two or more people to communicate, and will not block traffic. The multi-concave pedestal can be regarded as composed of several single concave pedestals. It is suitable to be placed in spacious and crowded places such as parks, and suitable for communication and relaxation of multiple small groups. The combination arrangement means that different types of seats are combined with each other to form a group arrangement, showing a relatively relaxed atmosphere. The design principle accords with the best scale of human morphology and the material with the best performance and perception. On the one hand, the seat should accord with the optimal scale of human body morphology, the scale design should pay attention to the height, area, the Angle of the back of a chair, the height and radian of the armrest on both sides. On the other hand, the garden bench should give priority to the selection of materials. As public seats are in the outdoors for a long time and are subject to the erosion of wind, sun, rain and snow for a long time, if there are big defects in the material itself, the life of seats will be shortened, and seats cannot be used to the maximum extent to meet people’s demands for life and entertainment. The seat material should be stable in thermal performance, not easy to be affected by external temperature, breathable and environmental protection, not easy to absorb water, water and other characteristics.

Wood Plastic Composite Public Seating Features
Want to improve the quality of outdoor seats, increase humanistic care, the unique type of outdoor plastic wood leisure chair is the best choice. Now, a large number of parks and scenic spots, residential areas are willing to choose plastic wood seats, because not only beautiful style and generous, more reliable quality, but also more suitable for the leisure environment. All kinds of plastic wood outdoor leisure chairs, appearance design is unique, beautiful, diverse styles, stool article USES plastic wood composite material or plastic wood reinforcement reinforced material, add the UV resistant, healthy environmental protection, not only appearance is close to natural lumber, close to nature, does not rot, not faded, insect-resistant eat by moth, paint-free, long service life, and high strength, creep resistant, impact-resistant performance is good and beautiful and durable. It is the first choice for parks, squares, streets, communities, schools, shopping malls, factory areas, scenic spots, playgrounds, beaches and so on. At present, plastic wood flower boxes appear in people’s vision of the frequency of more and more, municipal road greening on both sides of the use of wood plastic flower boxes colourful. Flower boxes, with natural and realistic performance, add a strong artistic atmosphere to the whole city. Changing the traditional single plant planting and multi-plant integrated planting, it creates an elegant and atmospheric view with the overall aesthetic feeling and can be designed in combination with the local traditional culture to enhance the affinity. Customizable Flower Boxes With the enhancement of people’s environmental protection consciousness, the voice that asks to protect forest resource is rising day by day, choose plastic wood material to replace the lumber before, used plastic wood to spend box surface impermeable water, do not fade. Acid and alkali resistance is the future of environmental protection life of the main substitute products.
Plastic wooden flower box has excellent performance:
  • Texture — Compared with metal, stone, glass and other materials, wood has excellent visual and tactile texture.
  • Good insulation – wood is one of the better electrical insulation materials because of its poor electrical conductivity.
  • High strength – Plastic wood has a higher strength to weight ratio than some metals.
  • Good processing – can be easily sawed, planed, nail, soft and hard moderate, convenient processing.
  • Good decoration — natural wood grain, beautiful and full of ecological atmosphere, is a rare pure natural decoration material.
  • Have heat preservation — the thermal conductivity of plastic wood is very small, flower box compares most material heat preservation to want a lot of taller, energy-saving value is very high.
The design of seating and floral boxes in the public environment plays a crucial role in the service life and user experience of the seats and flower boxes under the premise of satisfying the comfortable scale and optimal material selection. Plastic wood composite material has stable thermal performance, good corrosion resistance, strong resistance to microbial degradation and not easy to absorb water, water, and many other advantages. Therefore, there is a broad market prospect for the use of plastic and wood composite materials in the design of public environment seating and floral boxes.
