Considerations for Manufacturing Military Furniture

When it comes to manufacturing military furniture, it is important to consider the environments it will be used in. From barracks furniture to specially-designed furniture for brigs and medical units, these items need to be designed to tolerate continuous-use and intensive environments.


The majority of military furniture is fabricated using .05 aluminum and steel and finished to a high standard using smooth semi-gloss solvent-based paint. For military furniture that will be used outdoors, robust and weather-resistant materials are essential. Any stackable furniture that will be used for military dayrooms or areas where groups gather needs to be highly durable and easy to lift and stack quickly.


Durable and Easy to Clean


Whether you are considering new furniture for barracks or you are looking for new ammunition lockers, this furniture needs to be able to withstand continuous use and be easy to keep clean.

Metal furniture is also less likely to become a breeding ground for common pests seen in shared accommodation, such as bed bugs or lice.





Clean Lines and Smart Appearance


Metal, while being durable, is also one of the smartest options when it comes to keeping barracks tidy and common rooms neat. Offering clean lines and smooth painted finishes, metal military furniture helps to maintain the status quo in an often chaotic environment and ensure all rooms can be made ready for inspection at a moment's notice. Military furniture can be produced in a variety of colors and finishes and repair kits are available to repair damaged surfaces easily and quickly. In an environment where costs need to be kept to an absolute minimum, repairs are always favorable over replacement.


A Sensible Investment That Will Last For Years


In areas that have a high concentration of people, you need furniture that is as affordable as it is durable. While metal furniture might cost more than other materials, this is an investment that will pay huge dividends over the years. Metal is unlikely to tarnish, corrode, move out of shape or sustain damage through continuous use. Whether you are looking to invest in sleeping berths with storage drawers or an ammunition locker, this is furniture that is built to last.


Easy to Move and Transport

Many items of furniture are fabricated with .05 aluminum or steel, making it durable while lighter than many other materials, for example, wrought iron.


Ability to Withstand Extreme Temperatures


Depending on where it will be used, many items of military furniture are required to withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures, especially when used outdoors. Whether used in extremely hot or freezing conditions, furniture made from aluminum or steel will not warp, buckle or rot. When finished with high-quality solvent-based paint, it will stay looking and performing its best over many years.
