Restoration & Installation Services

Unfortunately nothing lasts forever & at times some items of outdoor furniture require the need to be restored to their original beauty.

Branson Leisure provides a restoration service in addition to the supply and installation of new furniture.

We can remove damaged benches, clean and re-powder coat metalwork, revitalise existing timber where possible, and replace new slats or parts where needed. We will even deliver the refurbished item back to site where it was collected from.

Please take some time to admire some of our restored benches pictured below.

Installation

We offer a professional & efficient delivery and installation service on all our standard and bespoke items. This will be arranged on order and appropriately priced.

Camel Before and After

Branson Leisure restored the hardwood slats for these listed Camel benches which can be found on Victoria Embankment. Most people believe they are there as part of the Cleopatra’s Needle display, but there is the possibility that later additions are to support the Imperial Camel Corp commemoration that stands in Embankment Gardens, unveiled in 1916. Branson Leisure restored and replaced the hardwood slats for these benches, originally produced in the 1870s and they are now a listed feature on the Victoria Embankment.

Of the original 10 benches, nine remain, but were badly in need of restoration. The slats were repaired where necessary or where they were missing, replaced with sustainably grown Iroko hardwood. The castings were cleaned and all slats tightened after being treated with a teak colour water repellent.

We were very proud this year to take on the challenge of refurbishing these two benches donated to the Worshipful Company of Lightmongers. The benches required many man hours to bring back to life especially in the fine detailed back sections.

Once repaired and finished with three coats of fresh oil these beautiful benches were installed back in their pride and place directly outside the Royal exchange, City of London.
