When safety and style meets...
Furphy Foundry's expertise in custom manufacturing in-house is what sets us apart from other suppliers. With over 150 years of experience in the industry, we have earned the trust of councils, architects and other institutions, through providing hundreds of stylish, high quality products that were customised to suit specific project requirements.
St. Kilda Foreshore Promenade is a recent project which Furphy Foundry has collaborated with to provide custom bollards. This promenade area plays a significant role in the City of Port Phillip with its foreshores and beaches. The St. Kilda Foreshore boasts high levels of tourism while remaining a very popular choice for locals. With the city council’s continuous effort to enhance the area’s amenities, the Promenade and adjoining Pier areas were recently renovated to provide better services to visitors.
The newly renovated area along the pier allows people to stroll, jog, rollerblade or cycle. This makes pedestrian safety a primary concern. To address this concern, Furphy Foundry provided council twenty five custom-made bollards which were used in the open space area to help direct traffic. Our custom bollards were manufactured from high strength steel with a long lasting coating of hot dip galvanise coupled with a 2 Pac paint system in Black for longevity in this seaside environment. Then, they were highlighted with two White strips to create high contrasting visibility in the area.
