South East England
RhinoGuard™ 75/30 shallow-mount protective bollards; Igneo seating; Giove protective planters
Land Securities completed a large outlet village in the South East of England. As a key part of the public realm aspect of the project, the client sought protective street furniture solutions which would not only offer the required level of protection but would also complement the surroundings of the shopping centre.
Advice was sought from Marshalls on what solutions would work best, bearing in mind that the development sits on top of a major road tunnel and therefore only products which require shallow installation would be appropriate.
The client was also seeking solutions which would suit the modern aesthetic of the development and enhance the surroundings.
Land Securities opted to use a range of different types of protective street furniture solutions on this project.
Marshalls recommended the use of RhinoGuard™ 75/30 shallow-mount protective bollards, as well as Igneo seating and Giove protective planters with integrated Rhinoguard™ technology to break up the line of the bollards.
The RhinoGuard™ 75/30 shallow-mount protective bollards only require a depth of 152mm for installation; they have been successfully crash-tested in accordance with the BSI PAS 68 Standard, creating effective hostile vehicle mitigation measures and protecting people, places and existing infrastructure.
The Giove large protective planter features a large capacity which is designed to accommodate the rootball of a tree.
The Igneo modular seating system offers unique styling, combined with functionality and exceptional impact performance. It has been successfully crash-tested in accordance with PAS 68 Standards as set by the Government and is manufactured from Marshalls’ fibre-reinforced precast concrete.
The chosen products offer the required level of protection, however they do not look like protective items; instead they are attractive additions to the shopping centre.
The large Giove planters house mature trees which not only attract biodiversity but also offer shade and a pleasing aesthetic. The protective seating, ultra modern in design, is highly durable and offers areas for shoppers to rest.
