Flexi-Boll – bollards that bend over backwards

Oct 23, 2012 Comments Off

CIS Street Furniture is pleased to announce Flexi-Boll to the UK market.

Flexi-Boll

This truly unique, flexible but rigid bollard is designed to outwardly look like a standard bollard, however when a force is applied to it special compounds in the polyurethane will deform allowing the bollard to bend up to 90 degrees. In fact the whole bollard can be run over and will self right in a matter of seconds. All this with little or no damage to itself and minimal or no damage to vehicles.

Flexi-boll is also available as an illuminated bollard with all of the above properties remaining intact along with an option for solar power in lieu of mains electricity. This makes the product ideal for remote roads and utilities allowing the use of energy saving carbon credits.

Flexi-BollThe Flexi-Boll range is offered with traditional or contemporary styling and a wide choice of colours with a base material of the same colour meaning minimal or no maintenance is required. This product is ideal for areas where vehicles come into contact with bollards marked for demarcation of traffic and either obstacles or pedestrians.

For extra security (such as outside shop fronts) a steel core filled with concrete can be added giving ram raid resistance to sensitive areas whilst retaining the material properties of the standard more flexible bollard elsewhere on your development. This product is ideal for the following areas of use:

  • Supermarket Car Parks
  • Airports, both air-side and non air-side
  • Ports, for vehicle holding areas
  • Roadside junction demarcation
  • Industrial Estates
  • Retail Parks
  • Town Centres
  • Cycle Lanes
  • Bus depots and Bus Stations
  • Train Station Car Parks and Drop off Points
  • Park and Ride Sites
  • Theme Parks and Visitor Attractions

In fact the permutations are almost limitless; why not download our PDF brochure (link at bottom of this page) to find out more regarding this truly remarkable product.

Street furniture package for North Ormesby

Redevelopment of North Ormesby Market Square

Following the recent developments around the Market square, a developer’s contribution has been secured to fund environmental improvements to the market place and surrounding areas. After detailed consultation with partners, traders and the local community, plans have been agreed for the design of the square, and work begin on site in February 2011.

The Market Place layout must combine functionality with attractiveness. The design is based upon creating an area that can operate well as a market place by combining sufficient numbers of well laid out trading pitches with some associated parking, whilst also providing an attractive, multi-purpose public space when the market it not taking place. The relationship of the market to Kings Road will be strengthened which should benefit the local economy.

The works will comprise:

  • Resurfacing of the square, with the introduction on contrasting materials, and creation of more formalised parking bays to the perimeter of the square
  • Limited tree planting within the new parking areas to add some vertical elements that are currently lacking
  • The introduction of bollards and street furniture to ensure the centre of the square will be traffic free on non-market day, which will have the added benefit of controlling traffic movement within the area
  • Demolition of the existing unsightly amenity block, and the formation of replacement facilities in an existing shop unit at 36 Market Place
  • New lighting will be installed throughout the square and along Kings Road. Banners will be installed on the lighting columns and replaced with Christmas lights during the festive period

New siganage for Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne

Jul 23, 2010 Comments Off

Sovereign Harbour Marina is one of the UK’s largest marinas and a natural first port of call for international visitors crossing from the continent. Nestled within the picturesque town of Eastbourne at the foot of the South Downs, Sovereign Marina Harbour is a great place to visit. The marina boasts superb accommodation for boat owners with a comprehensive range of facilities, boat mooring for vessels up to 24m in length and 24hour lock controlled sea access, which is not tidal dependant.

Lacking in clear contemporary signs Sovereign Harbour approached CIS Street Furniture to produce a range of contemporary signage for the project. Large cast aluminium entry signs were designed to replicate the flowing lines of the Sovereign harbour logo. This theme followed on for further signage throughout the development. Shoppers needed clear concise signs to direct them to the shopping facilities. These were placed at a relatively low level to aid the disabled and partially sighted.

Directory signs were also placed within the shopping areas in an effort to direct people to relevant shopping areas. These signs were extruded aluminium with screen-printed graphics and included both wall mounted and post mounted signs. These signs had to have a degree of interchangeability about them, as some companies change from year to year. Sovereign harbour were also given a number of blank signs, this would enable them to get individual signs screen printed locally at a later date.

At last Sovereign harbour had the clear contemporary signage it had always wanted, courtesy of CIS Street Furniture.

A new look to March Market Place

Jul 23, 2010 Comments Off

Spring/ summer 2000 brings a new look to the centre of March. Throughout 1999 Artist Zoë Chamberlain has been working with Fenland District Council in the development of designs for a floorscape feature and integrated range of street furniture for the Market Place area that will be unique to the town. The aim, to preserve and improve the function of the space and to provide an enhanced social setting.

The overall scheme has been planned in a way which respects history and tradition, but which also looks to the future. The strong influence of the road, river and rail on the development of the town and market in particular has been established as a starting point for the development of ideas. March was the home of one of the biggest Marshalling Yards in Europe at one time, and was a central part of the life of the River Nene, which flows adjacent to the Market Place. The scheme aims in some way to reflect the important connections March still has beyond itself today.

CIS Street Furniture were chosen by Zoë and the client Fenland District Council to turn her designs into reality. Fabricated from cast iron and wood, the seating is designed to hint at railway architecture, with the tapering effect also suggesting lines disappearing into the horizon. Cast-iron bollards have been incorporated into the scheme, based on the idea of a ‘Buffer’ bollard. A hinged door allows the ‘buffer’ to be opened for access to services by traders. Smaller buffer bollards were designed to allow people to sit on them, giving a perch type seating arrangement. Railings were to show gentle tapering curves, a common theme throughout the Road, River, Rail designed project.

More information on the scheme can be found at www.zoechamberlain.com
