Heavy Duty Modern Bench

The Audio Bench – Heavy Duty integrates our solar electronics with a modern timber (Opepe) bench, providing outdoor audio interpretation of up to 6 messages which can be accessed incrementally by 1/2 buttons (to discuss other button options please contact us). The great thing about the Audio Bench – is how seamlessly the audio electronics are integrated, not detracting from the heavy duty and modern design of the bench in any way.
