Restaurant Barrier: Plywood Seating
This simple barrier and seating system is made from framing members and plywood. The barriers have the required 18” base but taper to a thinner profile at the top to provide more room inside of the dining area. The barriers are attached to each other and the bases can be weighed down with sandbags or CMUs in the open internal cavity. A pole secured between the units can be used for lighting. Tables are supported on one side by the barriers and on the other side by legs and are spaced the required distance apart. They also have umbrella holes drilled through them so that shading can be provided when desired
A similar system can be used for a simple wayfinding system that integrates waste collection and menu/map holders. The back of all of the signs would have slots to accept recycling, waste, and possibly food scraps.
