Hot Dip Galvanized Finish:
Selected Pilot Rock bench and table frame components, lantern holders, trash receptacle holder components, bike racks and two grills are available with a hot-dip galvanized finish that is applied after fabrication and welding to ASTM A123 specifications to maintain an average zinc coating of 2.0 oz. per sq. ft. of surface area. Use /G in model number for hot dip galvanized finish.
Powder Coat Finish:
Selected Pilot Rock bench and table components (steel and aluminum), lantern holders, trash receptacle holders and bike racks are available with baked on lead-free TGIC polyester powder coat finish that is applied in a multi-step process of material preparation and finish application. This process includes: detailed chemical cleaning; application of a corrosion inhibiting iron-phosphate high pressure, high temperature bath; rinse; seal rinse; high temperature dry time; electrostatic application of the powder coat paint; chemical bonding to metal substrate in 400 degree industrial oven. The tough 3-4 mil thick coating offers a superior finish to liquid paints.

Several select picnic tables and benches can be equipped with seats/tops or seats/back of aluminum planks. These planks are extruded 6063-T6 aluminum, equivalent in size to 2" x 10" (nominal) lumber planks. Four structural ribs provide rigid support and strength. The aluminum is clear anodized to specification 204 R1 for a clean, maintenance free finish. All plank ends are covered by an extruded, clear anodized aluminum end cap fastened into place. Table tops are made into single units (at the factory) by connecting the planks with one-piece end caps fastened across each end of the top. Aluminum planks are provided with precision fitted aluminum brackets and galvanized carriage bolts to attach planks to table or bench frames. Use AL in model number for aluminum
Optional: Aluminum components are also available with powder coated mill finish aluminum planks with clear anodized end caps. See Powder Coat Finish description for details.
Construction Heart Redwood:
Construction heart redwood is a popular alternative to pine. Select planks are made from the interior grain of American Redwood. Redwood naturally resists decay. It is available in several common lumber dimensions. All lumber is precision drilled to facilitate assembly. All exposed edges are removed to a 3/8" radius. NOTE: other species of lumber such as cedar, fir and clear redwood may be available when in stock. Please inquire. Use CO in model number for construction heart redwood.
Exotic Imported Lumber:
Exotic imported hardwoods exhibit high resistance to decay, water damage and physical damage without the use of chemical treatments. Their features often imitate redwood. All of these hardwoods are imported from managed forests. Currently available only as 3" x 4" (nominal) timber for Pilot Rock benches. Species may vary depending on availability and cost. Please inquire. Currently using an Indonesian Balau wood (as of 10 2004). Use IB in model number for Indonesian Balau wood.
Untreated #1 Southern Yellow Pine:
Untreated #1 grade Southern Yellow Pine, kiln dried to reduce moisture content. The lumber is ready for you to water seal, paint or stain. All lumber is precision drilled to facilitate assembly. All exposed edges are removed to 3/8" radius. Use UP in model number for untreated pine. Tables use 2” x 10” planks. Benches can use 2” x 4”, 3” x 4” or 2” x 10” planks (varies by model). Trash receptacles use 2” x 4” slats. All dimensions are nominal.
Treated #1 Southern Yellow Pine:
Treated #1 grade Southern Yellow Pine is pressure treated and kiln dried after treatment (KDAT) to reduce moisture content. Wood preservative gives superior protection against termites, insects and decay. The lumber is clean to handle, dry and ready for you to water seal, paint or stain. All lumber is precision drilled to facilitate assembly. All exposed edges are removed to 3/8" radius. Use TP in model number for treated pine.
Vinyl Coated Expanded or Perforated Steel Products:
All Rock Vinyl Coated steel products are covered after fabrication and welding with a coating of vinyl Plastisol formulated with high impact additives and UV inhibitors. Vinyl coating is permanently heat-fused to the steel to an average thickness of 125 mils (1/8") for an overall average thickness, including top and bottom coatings, of 250 mils (1/4").
All of the D-Type and V-Type expanded steel that we use is 3/4-#9 material with a short longitudinal stretch. A shorter stretch means smaller “diamond” openings, which leaves more material (steel) per foot. The more diamonds there are per lineal foot is your indication that there is more steel left in the structure. Therefore, the top and seats will be stronger. It is also called the “long way design, non flattened expanded metal”. “Non-flattened” means the steel is “on edge” around the diamonds. This provides a stronger, more rigid material.
The R-Type and H-Type perforated steel is 14 ga. with 9/16” diameter holes punched on 13/16” straight line centers. Expanded steel and perforated steel components are assembled and reinforced with formed steel edge bands, angle irons and bars as appropriate to each product design. All components are single piece welded construction.
Two types of Expanded Steel tops and seats:
D-Type: This standard duty rectangular table top/seat design is built for your most common public applications. (It is not available on the SQT Series and PQT Series square tables.)
V-Type: This design incorporates wider edge banding and more structural supports to create a table built for applications and locations that can be more abusive to the product. It is especially suited for high elevation areas where winter snow load can destroy average tables. The V-Type design is available on both square and rectangular tables.

100% Recycled Plastic Timbers, Planks Flat Lids and Frames:
100% recycled plastic materials are available for use on: picnic table seats and tops; bench seats and backs; slats for round and square trash receptacle holders; round and square flat recycling lids; bench frames and table frames. This 100% recycled plastic material is formed using a combination of post consumer and post industrial waste plastics. These components are molded into solid dimensional shapes corresponding to nominal lumber dimensions. A solid color is formed throughout and a UV stabilizer is added for ultraviolet protection. This recycled plastic is a dense, durable product, offering a long lasting, attractive appearance. Recycled plastic components are available in your choice of colors.
