The Church Porch – A difficult space to manage.
The church porch is an odd environment. Neither wholly inside nor outside, this transition between the secular and spiritual worlds, frequently becomes a neglected hinterland, of windblown debris, mildew and damp paper. Even churches which otherwise pay great attention to first impressions, are often guilty of falling at this last hurdle on their threshold.
In truth it is a tough environment to manage, in many cases still more suited to its original purpose of storing visitor’s weapons than to its more mundane modern roles of providing shelter from the rain, offering a place for meeting and greeting, and displaying copious amounts of information.
As a result this latter function, walls are often covered in damp and rotting pinboards, most of which are ill-designed to cope with the environment in which they are located. And it is for this very reason that Greenbarnes have developed a purpose-made range of unglazed notice boards for church porch applications.
Framed either in oak or, for completely maintenance-free performance, in Man-made Timber, (a recycled plastic with the appearance of timber), these boards have a weatherproof rubber pinboard, are available in a range of standard sizes, or can be made to measure.
