VISTA FURNISHING BENCHES
Lake Superior is the largest fresh-water lake in the world. It is only fitting that Vista’s Superior series is equally as all-encompassing. Benches in the Superior line come in a large assortment of styles, and can be tailored to fit a wide variety of spaces and aesthetics.
The Superior series of benches combines sophistication, comfort and durability, all at a very competitive price. This series offers customization in terms of vertical or horizontal metal slats, curved frames, arched-back or straight-back, even multiple types of wood are available, so there is certain to be a Superior bench for everyone.
The second-largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Huron is both majestic and cosmopolitan. So too is Vista’s Huron series of benches. With a timeless, elegant style, Huron benches are right at home in even the most refined areas but can be used to add a touch of old-world charm to any space.
Metal Huron benches offer the choice of either vertical or horizontal slats and are mounted on a classic solid cast-aluminum frame. Choose ipe hardwood for an extremely durable, pastoral charm.
For an even more dignified look, arched and curved benches can lend graceful, fluid lines, greatly underscoring these benches’ cultured appeal.
Nestled quietly in the Sierra Nevadas, Lake Tahoe is as peaceful and awesome as its mountainous surroundings. Benches from the Tahoe series are just as monumental, with their understated dignity and permanence.
Comfortable as a cool, high-altitude breeze, Tahoe benches are perfect for enjoying a tranquil afternoon amid a regal copse of conifers, but in truth, they situate well in any environment.
Tahoe benches are available in several options, including arched-back, straight-back, and even backless models. Also available is the option for Brazilian ipe hardwood, obtained as always, from ecologically monitored forests. And for a slightly urban touch, opt for a Tahoe bench with steel slats or even recycled wood instead.

The Rideau Canal spans an impressive 202 kilometers in length, connecting the capital city of Ottawa with Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence River. Rideau is the French word for curtain, an apt description for the signature twin waterfalls that occur where the Rideau River joins the Ottawa River.
Rideau benches are architecturally well-designed with a modern look. These extremely durable and inviting benches feature seat and back portions constructed from Brazilian Batu hardwood, obtained from ecologically monitored forests.
Lake Erie is known for its changeable temperament, and so it is only fitting that Vista’s Erie series is equally dynamic. The Erie series is predicated upon a singular infinity steel laser-cut pattern that is as artistic as it is universal.
As such, the Erie series can be paired with other Vista frame ends from the Tahoe, Superior, and Huron series for greater versatility in style and placement.

Features and Benefits
Vista is an attractive product line that can complement any environment, from scenic parks and trails to urban streets and shopping malls. Not to be understated, however, is Vista’s commitment to quality and ecological sustainability. Vista is dedicated to conserving the environment; superior quality recycled materials and environmentally conscious methods are used during fabrication, including lead-free and solvent-free powder coatings, and wood sourced from ecologically managed forests. Many of the finished products themselves can even be recycled, ensuring that Vista looks confidently to the future. Vista’s construction quality is unmatched. Comprised of strong, durable materials, every product in the Vista line is built to last. Vista uses the same heavy-duty materials in all of its benches, so choose from straight, curved, arch-back, backless, or even a customized version, and regardless of style, rest assured that Vista has got your back. The full and final Vista allure is only possible through the application of an extremely high-quality finish, which is present on all of our products. After every surface is carefully prepared, exacting detail goes into each stage of the coating process.
Inline Production Quality Process
1: Sand Blasted
All metal is sand-blasted to remove any impurities and to etch the surface in order to promote excellent adhesion of the subsequent layers.
2: Zinc Primer
The products are then sprayed with a zinc-rich primer, and allowed to partially cure. E-Coat primer available when required.
3: Powder Coat Application
Next, a TGIC-free polyester topcoat is administered over the zinc primer.
4: Curing Powder Coat
The final stage occurs in a state-of-the-art infrared oven, where all of the combined coatings are cured and altogether hardened into a positively incredible finish.
5: Wrapping and Shipping
Finally, each product is carefully packaged using heavy-duty shrink wrap, and then physically bolted down for stability during transport. The end result is something that looks gorgeous no matter where it rests, and maintains its strength and appeal no matter how long it stays there.
