High visibility notice board, advertising display, meeting place,
charging station & illuminated seating - all in a single compact unit.

'Taiyo' Solar Charging Bench

Two large, illuminated display panels and the large slatted composite wood seat define the primary benefits of the 'Taiyo' charging bench. More than just a highly visible medium for displaying community information, event notices or paid advertising, the ‘Taiyo’ bench includes all the expected functionality of solar bench seating - phone charging, WiFi access point and night lighting. 

‘Taiyo’ is a unique solar bench that encourages community interaction, serves as a city information point, acts as a highly visible meeting point or simply provides a handy place to relax while charging your mobile device. 


Display panels can be configured in a variety of ways to suit the application:
Front and back panels, illuminated or non-illuminated
Front panel only, illuminated or non-illuminated
34” ePaper display to deliver live information or advertising
Back panel with printed graphics, logos etc.

Typically only the front panel will be illuminated (depending on the region) to avoid excessive power consumption.

The Taiyo bench is supplied in three sections for assembly on-site with the supplied bolts.
