Bollards are a great addition to road sides, storefronts, shopping centres, school zones, urban nodes and wherever pedestrians share road spaces. Installing bollards in an area visualizes to both vehicles and pedestrians that caution is required.

Furphy Foundry offers a wide range of standard bollards designed for cost-efficiency and longevity. We can also modify our designs or manufacture a custom solution for your particular project and location.

Drinking fountains are an essential addition to all open space environments and locations such as schools, parks and sporting facilities as they provide clean and safe drinking water to the public.

With potable water readily available, people need not to carry around bottled water and canned soft drinks which reduces the accumulation of waste. While drinking fountains are beneficial to people and the environment, they may impose a safety hazard.
