When choosing changing room bench seating it is very important to select the correct seating for the environment the seating is being located. If you select the correct locker room bench seating it will provide years of good service, select the wrong seating and it will at best be overpriced and at worst fail to perform extremely quickly. The main item to consider when choosing bench seating is whether the changing room is wet, filled with stream if the water contains chlorine it will make the environment more aggressive.
If you want to prevent rust then the only seating that will provide trouble free use in an aggressive environment including outdoors and industrial environments is plastic bench seating.

Once you move away from plastic bench seating rust will always be an issue, stainless steel seating will be the best option though this is very expensive and is not completely rust free.
Most steel seating that is sold as wet specification will rely on plating the best being zinc plating. The plating to make it effective should be done after the seating has been welded. This method relies on the seating then being painted the best being Plascoat a non-brittle form of epoxy powder coating. Plascote reduces chipping and cracking of the painted surface.
Seating slats the best product for wet areas are compact grade laminate such as Formica or Arpa this material will not rot or degrade easily by chlorine or water and is very hard wearing.
