Simple, standard, discrete: Mall Seat with plinth bracket

A simple solution inspired by popular demand, Street Furniture Australia’s new plinth bracket allows seats and benches to fix straight onto concrete and eliminates the need to design and fabricate custom parts.

After being inundated with requests to mount our seats on plinths, SFA production manager Christopher Morgan used our in-house 3D printer to create a model for a bracket to match our benches and seats.

The new plinth bracket now joins our standard range, received with interest by councils and landscape architects.

The bracket is available, at no extra cost, for our Galleria, Concourse and Mall benches, slim benches and seats, with battens in Jarrah, anodised aluminium or powder coated in any colour.

A discrete solution, ready to order. Enquire now.

Street Furniture Australia is launching a new Integrated Management System to include ISO certifications in quality, OH&S, sustainability and the environment.

Trend Watch May 2019

A guide to surveillance in the city: Google sister company Sidewalk Labs has created a system of urban signage that reveals the technologies it is using to track people in public spaces. The signs are intended to be a visual representation of the privacy policies the company is developing to go along with its data collection technology. While the project goes some way to address privacy concerns around data collection, there’s still no way for people to opt out of being tracked in public. The signage is being trialled in Toronto, Canada, but could be taken up in other cities. To find out more about the signage design, purpose and placement, see the article by Fast Company.
