Point Cook, near Melbourne, is the birthplace of the Royal Australian Air Force and home to the RAAF Museum. Being the second oldest air force in the world, the RAAF has a proud tradition and the RAAF Museums’ extensive collection of memorabilia and stories regarding Australia’s military aviation expeditions attracts many visitors. The museum is fortunate to have the support of a wonderful group of enthusiasts known as the Friends of the RAAF Museum. This volunteer group donates their time and much more, to advance the role of the museum in the preservation and display of aircraft and equipment of significance. In this capacity, they undertook a project to provide seating in a covered outdoor area for the comfort and convenience of the museum’s plentiful patrons.
With key priorities of comfort, durability and the right aesthetic fit, the Friends of the RAAF Museum contacted the team at Felton Industries. A survey of the site by Felton’s product specialists identified our FELPS Park Settings as the ideal choice to balance a large seating capacity with the added amenity of a table top. Constructed from premium Australian aluminium and featuring rounded frames and edges for comfort and safety, the Park Setting is an inclusive design that incorporates wheelchair accessibility. Ensuring a perfect fit with the museum’s design theme, the frames were powder-coated in Blaze Blue while the benches and table tops retained their marine-grade anodised finish.
With a total of 12 Park Settings installed, the museum’s undercover area now caters for up to 96 guests in comfort. Lined up in tight formation, the Park Settings make a striking impression and will serve the museum well for many years to come.
