WATER LABYRINTH - FORREST PLACE
Perth’s re-developed Forrest Place contains a unique interactive water sculpture called ‘Water Labyrinth’.
Designed by renowned Danish artist Jeppe Hein, the installation uses recycled stormwater cleaned by sand filters and chlorinated to swimming pool standards.
The water feature has become the focal point of the square, however the splash of the fountain created problems for pedestrians.
Designers needed to integrate a second barrier to prevent water reaching pedestrians who became too close to the water feature.
To fit into the topping slab and to integrate with the pavements construction joints, the additional drainage run needed to be less than 80mm in depth.
ACO’s stainless steel channel and grate with internal fall provided the ideal solution for designers. ACO custom manufactured each channel so that they integrated with the expansion joints. Furthermore, the slip resistance rating of the
Heelsafe® Anti-Slip grates met the water feature’s design criteria.
