Train station furniture – a simple essential for UK stations

Railway and Train Station Street Furniture

Train station furniture is an essential part of UK train stations for passenger comfort and convenience. From clean, well maintained and comfortable seating to litter bins for rubbish disposal to bicycle racks for cyclists to secure their bikes – every element of train station furniture can add to the overall passenger experience. Passengers won’t comment on these items or think of them as attributing to the overall enjoyment of their travel experience, but without these items your passengers’ travel experience would be far from enjoyable.

These train station furnishings should quite simply be ‘part of the furniture’ for UK train stations. Your customers may not comment on them, but they will appreciate them.

Types of platform furnishings you need to make your station comfortable and inviting for all your rail passengers include:

Litter Bins – litter bins help to maintain clean, tidy and hygienic station platforms. Platform litter bins should be secure and robust to cope with exposed weather conditions and vandalism. Bins provide a receptacle for passengers to throw away food wrappers, drink cartons and other rubbish items before boarding the train.

Seats and Benches – seating provides comfort for passengers waiting for their train. Benches need to be secure and easy to clean and maintain. Seats should be constructed from corrosion-, rust- and vandal-proof materials like hardwood timber, stainless steel and ductile iron and finished with a protective coating to keep them looking good and lasting long .

Planters – planters provide a secure place to house plants, flowers and shrubbery which make stations more visually attractive and welcoming for rail passengers. Planters should be made from ductile iron, stainless steel or other highly durable materials.

Cycle racks – bicycle racks give cyclists a place to dismount and securely store their bikes for safe keeping during their journey. Cycle racks need to be made from durable stainless steel and securely fastened with bolts to the ground.
