    The short answer is ‘yes’.

    Draffin Street Furniture design products with Australian Standards AS1428.2:  Design for Access and Mobility Pt.2 in mind.

    Our products are 100% Australian made in our 3000sqm factory in Bayswater, Victoria.

    304 grade stainless steel is adequate for outdoor applications in non-corrosive environments. 316 marine grade stainless steel is suitable for applications where outdoor furniture is installed in more corrosive environments (Coastal, Heavy Urban etc). Electropolishing either of these materials further increases the resistance to corrosion.

    Draffin Street Furniture is continually on the lookout for sustainable materials for use in our products. Read about Draffin Street Furniture’s sustainable materials here.

  5. 05.

    Mild steel does not have a corrosion resistant layer, and if directly painted, and left out in Australia’s harsh climate, will start corroding under the paint within weeks of installation. The galvanising process adds a protective layer that allows the furniture to last a very long time in Australian conditions.

    We use the highest grade of Australian Spotted gum, selected to last in all weather for a very long time. Routine maintenance may be needed in order to maintain the timbers appeal. Composite timber is an engineered material, made from a mix of recycled timber pulp and recycled plastics. The effect is a convincing substitute for timber that needs little to no maintenance. Timber-Look Aluminium is a new material offered at Draffin. Reinforced aluminium extrusions with a special photo-film baked into the powdercoating gives this material a natural look, very similar to timber in appearance yet little to no maintenance is required.

    Yes, we manufacture commercial grade street furniture, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be installed in the backyard. Keep in mind this is commercial grade furniture and may be more expensive than lighter duty products not designed for public use.
