Why choose the original Linea over reproductions?

Successful products are often followed by copycats. Over the past year we have become aware of an increase in reproductions of the Linea range attempting to create a similar aesthetic at a lower price. This can compromise the overall durability and environmental credentials of projects being delivered, affect ongoing maintenance requirements, and in some instances pose a risk of injury to the public. The design of Linea is deceptively simple while delivering exceptional attention to detail. Details matter not only for beauty, but also for providing durability, and safety, that will last decades. Linea strictly uses the highest quality and sustainable materials, has passed rigorous strength tests, and is designed for longevity, with easily replaceable parts. The product range is the result of hundreds of hours of research and development …

Earthy Pastels: now with boosted UV resistance

You can now specify Street Furniture Australia’s popular Earthy Pastels colour range with the assurance of brilliant colour for years to come. That’s because the UV resistance currently applied to the Durabright Range has been added to Earthy Pastels as standard. The Earthy Pastels range was introduced in July 2022 to meet popular demand for contemporary muted hues. As Earthy Pastels were increasingly specified across a wide range of landscape design projects, it was important to ensure the full range of colours would retain their brilliance in the harsh Australian climate. The Earthy Pastels range includes eight colours inspired by the Australian landscape. Muted shades in Mustard, Dusty Pink and Pale Eucalypt green are inspired by the desert. The blue ocean and sky are represented by the hues Horizon Blue …

A City in Focus

As part of the CM+ Talk Series 2015, Phil Raskall, Strategic Research Manager, City of Sydney, delivered his talk, ‘Transforming the City’s Economy: Implications, Opportunities and Challenges’, at the CM+ headquarters in East Sydney on Thursday, 13 August. The City is undergoing a profound transformation. Over the most recent five-year period, the City of Sydney economy created over 50,000 jobs and grew at twice the rate of the rest of Sydney. The majority of this growth was in the areas of professional and business services and the digital economy. Attracted by job opportunities, over the last two decades the City residential population has increased by over 100,000 people. “Sydney doesn’t rely on one or two ‘tricks’ to maintain its appeal,” Raskall says. “It performs well at all levels.” With a …
