Street and park furniture specialist Urban Fountains and Furniture (UFF) was once again engaged by Busselton Shire Council to develop unique items for a community park in Dunsborough, Western Australia.
As part of the redevelopment of Lions Park in the heart of the town, UFF was approached by the council to supply products that reflected a contemporary style. Working with Busselton Shire, UFF designed and manufactured water drain grates for an existing water feature and a custom table tennis net for the concrete playing surface.
UFF chose durable stainless steel materials with a sleek polished finish to manufacture both items to meet the client’s project requirements.
The water grate was screwed into a custom made C-channel frame that was designed to be compact, yet strong enough to support pedestrian traffic.
The table tennis net included welded pins that were anchored into the polished concrete playing surface with Chemset to ensure strength as well as prevent the net from bending if vandalised.
Both products were designed by UFF’s director, with the pattern influenced by modern street art and existing furniture on the site. Both products were fabricated from laser cut 316 marine grade stainless steel, and delivered with a smooth polished grit finish.
