Since the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act in 1992, accessibility has become a major consideration in open spaces and the design of Street & Park Furniture. Today, we see a growing trend with Picnic Settings and Barbecues to provide accessibility for inclusive communities.
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.
