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.
Furphy’s Foreshore Drinking Fountain has a 316-grade stainless steel material construction with electro polish finish which provides durability and anti-corrosive properties with low maintenance requirements.
The Foreshore has a self-draining capability which sets it apart from other drinking fountain models. This is made possible by using two connections running inside, an inlet and outlet. The inlet allows water to flow from the mains to the bubbler, the unused overflow drains down to the attached dog bowl to provide clean drinking water to pets. When the bowl reaches its water level limit, it has a drain hole which automatically drains it down through the outlet where it can be connected to the stormwater. This minimises accidents caused by water spillage on the ground at the same time keeping the dog bowl clean without daily maintenance requirements.
The Foreshore drinking fountain also incorporates a wheelchair access design which makes it easier for people with impairments to use the facility. With its contemporary-modern design, this would be a great addition to any open public space or environment.
