IMPACT AND COMMUNITY PROTECTION FURNITURE
Furphy Foundry is the quintessential Australian company. From its humble beginnings over 150 years ago as an agricultural implement manufacturer, Furphy has grown into a modern foundry that produces high-quality street furniture and urban design products.
The history of the Furphy water cart is part of Australian folklore, and the word ‘furphy’ part of the company's vernacular. Furphy’s street and park furniture are embedded in Australia’s cultural fibre — in parks, streets and open spaces across the country.
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Furphy Foundry’s impact and community street furniture is purpose-designed to secure safety for crowded places or areas where pedestrians are present near roads.
According to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), terror-attack planning in Australia will continue to involve tactics that are low-cost and low-capability, with devastating effects. In response, Furphy has developed an infrastructure range that offers versatile solutions designed to stop unauthorised hostile vehicular access to pedestrian areas, and at the same time maximise the visual appeal of open spaces.
The range includes:
Seating | Versatile, stylish security seating, adaptable to any landscape. Includes seats, benches, connecting modules and ottomans
Planter boxes | Built from precast concrete, provide security and public safety with a touch of green
Security and removable bollards | Maximum pedestrian protection with minimum obstruction
Planter boxes, Fitzroy Street mall upgrade | Tamworth NSW
