This service is the fixing of anchors to the bench and the anchors into the paving slabs. We first use a Scope to check for electrical cable underground. We fix anchor brackets to the bench leg, drill 5mm holes into the concrete, insert rawplugs into paving slab, insert screws through bracket hole into rawplug, tighten. The anchors can be fitted on the inside or outside of the leg, fitting on the inside is more time consuming so we charge more. Please choose how you want your anchors fixed.
The service includes anchors to paving slabs and is in addition to the delivery charge. The paving slab anchor kit comes with 4 anchors for anchoring all bench legs.

Installing your bench on a paving slabs is more expensive that fixing to grass but the bench will last longer maintenance around the bench will be easier.
A properly constructed paving slab base should be at least 100mm longer each end of the bench and be a minimum of 1000mm front to back - we do NOT lay this slabs for you, you need to arrange this yourself before we come to install the bench. Please make sure the paving slabs are level. Its best to lay the slabs on concrete NOT just sand/cement mortar. The bench will only be level if the base is level.
Whilst we make every effort to avoid hitting electricity cables (we use a Scope electrical cable avoidance tool), please note it is the customer’s responsibility to alert us of their presence. No liability for any damage is accepted or implied as some cables are difficult to detect. We cannot take responsibility for any damage to services (gas, electricity, fibre/telephone cables, water). No liability for any damage is accepted or implied as some cables are difficult to detect.
We cannot undertake works on the Highway or Pavement.
It is your responsibility to get get the landowners written permission for the bench to be installed.
The installation charge is non refundable if the installation fitter arrives on site on the agreed date but is unable to carry out the installation because the surface is not level, the site is locked, there are cables/pipes in the ground and there is no other suitable location or for any other reasons beyond our control.
You will be asked to provide photos, a location drawing and sign out installation agreement before work is carried out.
Please note this installation service is only available for mainland England and Wales with standard delivery option.
