CLEARFIELD, Utah, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifetime Products, manufacturer and inventor of the first table with a blow-molded tabletop and the first picnic table with a blow-molded top, has unveiled yet another revolutionary lawn and garden table by introducing the Lifetime Convertible Bench.
The Lifetime Convertible Bench is a simulated wood garden bench that converts from bench to table instantly. One person can single-handedly convert the product into a table by simply squeezing the built-in handle and tipping the bench back. Additionally, when two Lifetime Convertible Benches are placed together in the table position, they create an instant, full-sized picnic table.
"This is a very versatile product that allows consumers to maximize their outdoor living space," said Lifetime Product Marketing Manager Darrin Gunnell. "We've made it aesthetically appealing to use as a cozy park bench for day-to-day use and decor, but we've added the convenience of being able to quickly convert it into a table with bench seating for a spontaneous dining or work area."
As typical with Lifetime branded products, the Lifetime Convertible bench is constructed with a powder-coated steel frame. The simulated wood seat and back slats are made from weather-resistant polystyrene- a material that looks and feels like real wood, but unlike wooden benches, the simulated wood will not splinter or warp, and never needs to be painted or varnished. In addition, the seat is UV-protected to prevent fading, and the individual wood textured slats are aligned to allow for quick water drainage.
The Lifetime Convertible Bench is designed to comfortably accommodate two adults, with a 57-inch seat and a 14.25-inch deep tabletop. It also features easy in and out access of the seating area when in the table position. It is backed by a two-year warranty and retails for approximately $99. Currently, the Lifetime Convertible Bench is available at Costco Wholesale stores.
Lifetime invented the first blow-molded polyethylene tabletop in 1995- a picnic table designed to fold flat. The fully-assembled picnic table was an instant success. Later in 1998, Lifetime utilized the same technology and invented the first blow-molded polyethylene banquet table, which is now considered the standard for modern utility tables.
Established in 1986, Lifetime Products, Inc. is a privately-held company headquartered in Clearfield, Utah. Lifetime is the world's leading manufacturer of polyethylene folding tables, chairs, and residential basketball hoops, and has products sold in 58 countries. With other offerings from outdoor sheds and carts to kayaks and soccer goals, Lifetime continues to develop innovative products For the Way You Live™.
