|STOP THE CYLE OF DAMAGE AND WASTE
Road-side and urban infrastructure maintenance creates an on-going cycle of damage, disturbance and landfill, growing more environmentally damaging and problematic every year.
Current methods result in tonnes of carbon intensive waste and the on-going consumption of carbon intensive materials for repairs.
Now there’s a simple solution for reducing waste and landfill to zero for the life of a development.
|FUTUREPROOF YOUR DEVELOPMENTS
Current methods of maintaining infrastructure provide no future benefit, costing more every year to maintain
Each year as our populations grow so does the impact upon our roads and streetscapes, making it increasingly costly and difficult to maintain our roads effectively within the limited budgets.
Simple technology is now available for futureproofing your developments
|IMPROVE EFFICIENCY & REDUCE MAINTENANCE COSTS BY 90%
Using new simple technology you can eliminate risk of cost overuns and reduce the cost of maintaining infrastructure by aroud 90% for the life of a development.
“Efficiency in infrastructure investment must form a central focus for Australia’s governments, as they seek to close the infrastructure gap. After all, every dollar saved by eliminating cost overruns and inefficiencies can be invested in new, productive infrastructure.” Options for Reform Report
|SMARTER TRAFFIC INFRASTRUCTURE
Road-side infrastructure is subject to on-going damage caused by vandalism, impact from vehicles and on-going environmental effects.
Items of road-side infrastructure are unlikely to last the life of a development without being damaged, or simply growing tired and requiring removal or replacement creating an on-going cycle of damage and repairs.
Now you can reduce the cost of maintenance by 90%, eradicate variables and insure your company against future cost increases
Bollards by their very nature are subject to impact from vehicles – yet surprisingly are not designed to be impact resistant, creating a costly cycle of damage and replacements.
We have developed a simple system that makes any hollow bollard resisant to impact, protecting the surrounding foundations from damage, and making bollards re-usable following impact
Now you can reduce the cost of maintenance on bollards by 90%, eradicate variables and insure your company against future cost increases
|SMART TRAFFIC SIGNAL COLUMNS

These Smart foundations enable traffic signal columns to be quickly removed, replaced or even re-located for wide loads, events, maintenance or future upgrades: requiring no digging or heavy labour and no disturbance to the foundations for the life of a development.

At the forefront of change are some of Australia’s leading mining companies, seeking to reduce their carbon footprint.
To reduce the financial and environmental cost of re-locating a site Smart re-usable foundations have been used that are protected from damage by the Smart self-healing ground socket and can be removed and relocated when the site closes, leaving behind no waste, no landfill and no carbon footprint.
Seeking to reduce risk of injury to workers and to keep our roads in good working condition.
We had signs that were being hit on a regular basis (once or twice a week we were having to replace this sign). Since installing the Keep Left on a Smart Taper and Spring return post we haven’t had to replace it once. We highly recommend using the Taper and Spring Return Posts if you have similar problems with vulnerable signs- especially when dealing with wide loads
Smart technology is especially suitable for coastal locations where rust and corrosion is a major problem.
We use the Smart Taper to secure signage, grab-rails, bollards, bins and fencing at Hillary’s Marina and Fremantle Boat Harbour. The Smart Taper saves us so much time and money, we now use it everywhere as it is the only system that keeps working year after year on the coast.
