The Luke Hughes Windsor church bench is the latest addition to our range. An adaption of our standard bench first commissioned by St Paul's Church, Covent Garden, they are named not after the House of Windsor, but after Barbara Windsor, the famous actress.
Available as straight 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5-seaters, the Windsor church bench range provides an in-filled back panel. See how St Paul's Church, Covent Garden has used these to great effect for the commemoration of benefactors.
Windsor stackable benches are the ideal replacement for solid Victorian and early 20th Century church pews, which are almost always fixed and, therefore, completely inflexible. Stackable benches revolutionise the flexibility and versatility of churches. Stackable benches are therefore the central investment in any re-ordering, with a clearly identifiable return on investment and wonderful opportunities for fundraising from individuals and members of the congregation. Unlike church pews, Windsor stackable benches are easily carried, stacked and set out by two people - meaning these beautiful stackable benches can quickly be reconfigured or stored away using our bench dolly to provide clear areas for different activities.
Clearing even a large church or cathedral of Windsor church benches takes just minutes when our uniquely engineered bench dolly is used. This offers safe stacking, transport and storage of five stackable benches, whether curved or straight. When budgeting for stackable benches, therefore, it is advisable to budget for one pair of bench dollies for every five benches of the same length. Please note that, with the exception of the 1-seater stackable version, benches with arms can only go on the top of a stack.
Like all our products, the Windsor church bench is engineered for a lifespan of 50 or more years, which makes them comparable with church pews in terms of length of service, but clearly they provide much greater flexibility. All our benches are also designed to be refurbished, helping to ensure that they last for decades. This also helps ensure that carbon remains locked up for as long as possible. Larger synagogues, churches and cathedrals can find that they have ten or more pairs of bench dollies and the question then arises as to where and how to store them when they're not in use.
Made from solid European Oak of the highest quality and sourced from sustainable forests, Windsor stackable church benches come in five different sizes and five different finishes as standard.
Clients, architects and designers can specify linking/ganging brackets and custom stains on special request. Felt glides can also be specified on the Windsor church bench.
