In the 1950s, cast aluminium manufacturers realised that they could replicate iconic Victorian outdoor furniture that was originally produced in iron. Aluminium is rust free, much lighter, but still robust.
UK aluminium foundries, such as Jardine Leisure, Brambley, Freegate and Ashworth Leisure, cast benches, chairs and tables that were influenced by the designs of the 19th century. At Coalbrook, we also make the vintage-style furniture that first began production in the 1950s, such as the Sandringham chair and bench.
The Sandringham Chair is based on the Andrew McLaren & Co. Lion garden bench, design no. 281316, which was registered at the Public Records Office in 1874. Our chair version has solid aluminium slats that are fixed into a frame to avoid any lateral movement.
Our reproduction Victorian furniture is etched and then colour powder coated before being baked at 210 °C. This allows the powder coating colour to super adhere into the aluminium surface to create exceptional colour longevity.
Sandringham Chair Upgrades 2023
Screw In Feet – All of our chairs, benches and tables now have screw-in nylon feet to protect the powder coating from scratching or chipping.
Lateral Movement Eliminated
To arrest any lateral movement we have upgraded the Sandringham chair with the following improvements.
Solid Cast Aluminium Slats – we use solid aluminium so there is no maintenance, unlike wooden slats, and we can powder coat the seat and back to match the rest of the bench or chair.
NB – We do not use extruded aluminium slats that are hollow and susceptible to bending.
Welded Slats – the chair slats are not simply bolted to the seat ends, they are welded to a frame.
Slat Support – our Sandringham chair is further strengthened with a seat support that keeps the slats in position.
Brass Nuts – Coalbrook now specifies solid brass dome nuts for the sides of our chairs and benches.
