Our Vision Shaping Outdoor Spaces

Working closely with landscape architects, local authorities and contractors - our products help build communities, improve our environment and keep people safe.

Designers and manufacturers of street furniture, we are pioneers of cleverly engineered modular solutions than can be combined in different ways to achieve endless possibilities. From cycle stands and bollards to planters and complex seating configurations, our products are made in the UK from recycled steel and FSC Iroko Timber - enabling us to maintain our high quality standards, minimise lead times and reduce our impact on the environment.

Whether you are shaping a small public square or a large scheme, we’re your one-stop-shop and we’ve got you covered from concept through to delivery.

Get in touch; we’ll collaborate with you to make sure you achieve your vision.

Furnitubes thrive in the outdoors and we are on a mission to get more people outside, safely.

choose Furnitubes? Why


We design everything inhouse. With years of combined experience in the landscaping industry, our design team focus on developing innovative, well-considered and high quality modular solutions that can be configured to meet your vision. Though we still appreciate the variety and challenge of bespoke designs.

Manufacturing Made in Britain

Our factory is based in Kent. With recycled steel being at the core of many of our products, having in-house fabrication capability puts us firmly in control of our operations. Not only ensuring products are delivered on time and to the best standard – but significantly minimizing our carbon footprint too.

Customer service

We want to make your life as easy as possible. Our sales and design teams are always on hand and happy to help you with product selection, technical information, CADs & other files or quotes you can build into your scheme costing plans.

How we do things

Recycled steel

We only use recycled steel to produce our steel products. This significantly reduces our waste and energy consumption all the while maintaining our high standards – at Furnitubes we never compromise on quality.

Triple process coating

Triple Process Coating is our independently tested, robust finish system for steel products. Providing a superior finish quality to galvanising with the same protective properties, it combines shot blasting, a protective primer and a PPC finish coat. The three stages of our triple process coating work to eliminate any chance for adhesion issues and uneven coating to ensure a smooth high quality outcome.

FSC timber

Outdoor furniture should be inviting and it should be fit for purpose, but not at the expense of our planet - which is why we produce our products with FSC sourced Iroko hardwood. Classified as “very durable”, Iroko is known to last more than 25 years making it extremely durable, stable and cost effective in the long run. As standard, we offer a smooth planed finish that will typically fade to silvergrey within 12 months. To retain its original colouration, ask our team about the treatments and finishes we offer.

Modular is the future

So in 2015 we launched our journey into modularity, investing in smart, high quality and versatile modular products that can be combined in any number of ways to achieve different outcomes.

Since then we have collaborated with dozens of landscape architecture firms across the UK, to shape outdoor spaces and bring people together outside safely.

Why go modular ?

• Standard pieces maximum possibilities

• More sustainable, less waste

• Cost-effective and fixed lead times

• High quality, tested and proven durability

• Easy to assemble

• Scalable, with retrofitting options

After decades shaping outdoor spaces, we saw a need in the market for contemporary, high quality street furniture that can be produced quickly, on a budget without compromising on quality.
