Erlau AG founded in 1828 in Aalen, is a leading manufacturer of outdoor furniture (open space equipment). Erlau is a subsidiary company of RUD Ketten Rieger & Dietz GmbH u. Co. KG, which produces top quality chain systems and components.

Erlau outdoor furniture offers customers a great degree of functionality and design combined with versatility and durability. Its furniture range consists of a variety of innovative benches, seating systems, litter bins, bicycle parking systems to planters and bollards to name a few.

All Erlau furniture is IS0 9001, produced exclusively in Germany can be expanded, extended or completely refurbished even many years after being purchased and comes with a ten-year anti-rust protection guarantee.

Wire mesh and pagwood benches for railway platforms

The user-friendly railway platform bench range was developed in accordance with the specifications of Deutsche Bahn and tailored to meet the requirements of railway stations. Resistance to vandalism and durability, paired with appealing design, were the specifications that Erlau managed to best fulfil, according to a statement from the product development department of DB AG.

Erlau’s long-term contract confirms its quality. A ten-year anti-rust guarantee, a brake dust-resistant and solvent-resistant surface with a 350µ Rilsan coating and concealed wire ends are just a few of Erlau’s quality criteria.

Designer furniture for public waiting areas in stations

As a market leader in high-quality and innovative designer furniture for public waiting areas, Erlau has been a trustworthy partner to Deutsche Bahn for 15 years. In addition, Erlau has once again been awarded the contract for a framework agreement with the Austrian Federal Railway (Österreichische Bundesbahn, ÖBB).

The benches and seating groups designed especially for the ÖBB will now be installed as part of a step-by-step process in all newly-built, and modernised railway stations and their platforms throughout the entire ‘Alpine Republic,’ thus finding a large distribution.
With similar market success in Germany followed by the conclusion of the updated framework agreement with DB, Erlau is expanding its strategic position of market leadership consistently and systematically.

Flexible outdoor seating systems for public waiting areas and pedestrian zones

Erlau has outdoor furniture for every outdoor challenge due to its functionality, longevity and the varieties available. The offering includes everything from child-friendly playground benches and water-resistant park benches to the airy styling of seating opportunities in public waiting areas and pedestrian zones. As varied as the demands may be, the flexible seating systems and transparent designs correspond harmoniously with every possible type of surrounding.
