Innovator of the Year
Smart Urban was awarded Innovator of the Year by the Department of Commerce for the development of the Smart Sustainable Foundations
Worksafe Award by Dept Occupational Health and Safety for succesfully addressing the major cause of workplace injury
These ideas are just so simple…it’s almost embarrassing nobody thought of them before
Our selection is not based on price alone
We also considered the safety & saving aspects of the products.
The Smart Sustainable Foundations allow the quick replacement of posts, with no further effort required to the base.
The sustainable foundations provide a significant cost benefit by re-using the existing footing and reduces risk to our employees by reducing time spent on islands exposed to traffic.
We highly recommend Smart Urban bollards
We were finding it very difficult to keep up with the constant damage to bollards, especially in the busy city centre where they are being hit on a daily basis. The Smart Urban bollards have made the job just so much easier. We also use them to protect new trees and we relocate the bollards when they are no longer required.
We are happy to provide a verbal reference
Winner Department of Occupational Health & Safety Worksafe Award for successfully addressing
The major cause of workplace injury (body stressing), by removing the need for digging & heavy labour
The major cause of serious workplace injury – by substantially reducing time working in dangerous locations
