Part of a cleaner and healthier future, here at Furphy Foundry we’ve released the next generation of our innovative Aqua-Hub Drinking Fountains. Our Touch-Free Aqua-Hub comes with built-in sensors to activate the Bubbler, Bottle Filler or Pet Drinking Panel – providing a more hygienic experience.
We are proud to participate in the Victorian Level Crossing Removal Project, by supplying 80x Fulcrum Seats across 50 train stations as part of the upgrade. A total of 50 train stations have been transformed with a further 50 seats in the pipeline yet to be completed.
Furphy Foundry is now manufacturing its full range of products using a Clean Energy Source, made possible with the installation of solar panels across its various plants in Shepparton, Victoria. The manufacturing company that produces street and park furniture and open space structures, has also modernised its casting plant with the implementation of a new electric induction furnace.
Our new Precinct Seats are made in Victoria with environmentally friendly 100% recycled High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic panels. HDPE is lightweight and super strong making it a most versatile product manufactured from industrial sources, pallets, car bumpers with little to zero waste as scraps or off-cuts are recycled / re-recycled which greatly reduces the impact on the environment.
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.
Furphy Barbecues with Hand Sanitisers provide an acute alignment of food handling areas and community hygiene with 5000 sprays per bottle and refills readily available and easy maintenance – adding to cleaning contract or stand alone servicing.
Outdoor products are constantly competing with Mother Nature, which means not only do they have to have high quality finishes, but their finish and colour also has to last. We understand the long term investment that our clients make when purchasing our products.
Environmentally friendly, versatile and durable were at the top of Moreland City Council’s urban design wish list and Furphy Foundry delivered. Our solution was our 100% recycled and highly durable Promenade Seat to meet the specific brief.
