Tackle the smart technology market head on with the iLEVEL Bin from SPARK Furniture. Thanks to the fully customisable Smartsensor solution, this bin incorporates the idea of smart infrastructure to create a piece of street furniture that adapts to the needs of the space.
‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Smart Infrastructure’ are all the buzz this year as designers, manufacturers and government administrators look for future innovations that improve liveability, productivity and sustainability in public spaces nationally.
SPARK Furniture has developed a product that utilises their unique set of manufacturing capabilities and incorporates the market leading ‘Smartsensor®’ technology to create completely custom smart waste networks. Aptly called the iLEVEL bin, SPARK’s design incorporates a fullness level sensor that alerts waste managers when a bin requires servicing – the point of difference being it is retrofittable to your existing network and won’t require a complete network upgrade.
SPARK launched the iLEVEL bin at Sydney’s 2018 Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo, where the bin received outstanding feedback from stakeholders all around the country. Partnering with Smartsensor®, recent winners of the ARN Internet of Things award for ‘Emerging Technology’, SPARK have refined a new cowl that houses the sensor securely in the prime location for monitoring the bin’s contents.
With real-time and historic data displayed through the customised and intuitive user platform, the iLEVEL range enables users to completely manage their smart waste network. The result is greater financial efficiency through reduced instances of servicing empty bins; reduced carbon emissions through network service improvements; improved environmental efficiencies with less bin overflows and better vermin management; an increased understanding around how public spaces are used, leading to improved planning and future development requirements; and improved productivity and consumer satisfaction.
With offices now in Victoria, Queensland and South Australia, SPARK Furniture has been making high quality street furniture for the Australian market since 1986, with their partner, Rowlands Metalworks, an ISO 9001 certified sheet metal manufacturing facility. With a team of inhouse industrial designers, estimators and project managers, and over 100 years combined experience, creative, fully customisable and cleverly designed street furniture is a daily reality.
The iLEVEL bin can be supplied as a complete smart bin enclosure solution, custom designed to user specifications or retrofitted to an existing bin enclosure.
Waste is a growing global concern. In Australia alone we produce over 50 million tonnes of rubbish each year and the population continues to expand. A lack of detailed network information can lead to bins being underutilised if installed in the wrong locations or overflowing with waste if requirements are not met, leading to environmental damage, a poor user experience and increased operational costs.
The data provided by Spark’s iLEVEL bin enclosure range, in partnership with Smartsensor®, is a game-changer that will revolutionise the future of waste management.
