The Audio Bench – Iroko Hardwood integrates our solar electronics with a commercial grade Iroko Hardwood bench, providing outdoor audio interpretation of up to 6 messages which can be accessed incrementally by 2 buttons (to discuss other button options please contact us). The great thing about the Audio Bench – Iroko Hardwood is how seamlessly the audio electronics are integrated, not detracting from the traditional aesthetic of the bench in any way.

Note: We also supply an Oak Audio Bench of a more modern and heavy duty design.
