VOLTAN PLANTERS Voltan planters are available in three formats - Round, Rectangular and Square. Semi Round and Hexagonal versions are also available to special order. All are produced from perforated steel sheet which has a substantial wall thickness to ensure maximum durability for on-site performance. This material has proved to be extremely durable and many other co-ordinated products are offered in the Voltan range including seating and litter bins. Planter liners are of the utmost importance and Townscape have paid great attention to their strength when filled with soil for planting. The liners are

constructed from hot dipped galvanised metal sheet to give as much protection as possible from rusting and on the larger units, reinforcement is added. In fact liners for the larger planters are made in segments to allow for ease of site handling. Adequate drainage holes are provided in the base of the liners. Many accessories are available for Voltan planters including self-watering devices, security fixings, lifting hoops for site handling and fork lift bases on some designs for manoeuvrability. Please refer to the Voltan Range brochure for details of other products available.

BALTIMORE PLANTERS The Baltimore range offers two Square and two Round formats as standard although it is possible to amend these sizes to larger or smaller as required. The styling of the planter features the circular porthole which is carried through the entire Baltimore range of products including seating units, tables, litter bins, tree grids and guards.

plants cannot be easily reached by vandals. The baskets are generally ordered in conjunction with a Townscape extended bollard as illustrated or alternatively, they can be supplied with a wall bracket. To special order, we can also produce the basket in a half round version for wall fixing or with special clamp fixing for mounting to a post.

The planters are manufactured from mild steel, the outer frames an all welded construction making the unit extremely robust and vandal-resistant. The inner sleeve is permanently fixed to this frame and can be finished in a different colour to the frame to achieve a striking colour combination if required.

Liners are manufactured in hot dipped galvanised steel to resist corrosion whilst being robust enough to take the weight of the soil required for planting. Drainage holes are provided. Self-watering devices can be supplied to customer requirements.

The Baltimore hanging basket offers a high level planting facility which has become very popular as the

Baltimore Square

TIMBER PLANTERS The Toledo timber planters co-ordinate with the Toledo seat, bench and litter bin. Three standard sizes are offered although these can be altered to special quotation. The Toledo is a very strong, large capacity planter constructed with extra thick slats and heavy-duty steel corner posts mounted on a steel frame to eliminate any bowing problems. The visual effect from the use of contrasting hardwoods is unusual and sets off plants and shrubs against a natural material. Each planter has hot dipped galvanised sheet steel liners as well as ground fixing points for added security although it must be said that these planters are very heavy and it would be difficult to move them once they are filled with soil. In line with Townscape’s stringent Environmental Policy, all timber used is carefully selected from husbanded forests and is treated with three coats of Sadolin prior to despatch.

PLANTER SURROUNDS The Planter Surround is ideal for situations where shrubs are planted directly into the ground in an ‘open’ landscape but still require protection from pedestrians and dogs. The main advantage of this type of planting is that larger or deeper set roots can develop naturally below ground. The Surround is based on a bollard post and rail system, almost any design of bollard can be used and shortened as necessary to achieve the height required in proportion to the shrubs or trees planted.

CONCRETE PLANTERS

Warwick Major

Townscape precast concrete planters are designed to be both decorative and functional. They are also practical in that they allow a good depth of soil for roots and are a convenient height for planting. Concrete planters are produced from natural materials and will therefore weather naturally over many years in the environment. The other main advantage of concrete as a raw material is that it is very heavy and once placed, these planters will be difficult to move by gales, floods or vandals.

Warwick

The Warwick planters shown here are available in three circular sizes, all having an integral plinth with four drainage holes, two of which can be used for permanent fixing to the ground if required. This planter can easily be used as a litter bin and the use of the different Warwick modules as planters and litters bins looks most attractive.

The Bloc Stacking planter is now available in five module sizes; 500, 770, 1000, 1200 and 1800. These units can be used singly or in multiple tier heights. The 1800 Bloc Split Level is also offered with a 770 unit stacked on top to give a split level effect which can look very attractive when planted with plants trailing over the top level. To ensure stability, the rings are designed to locate positively by an anticapillary lip when stacked on top of each other. The stacking rings can be supplied with or without a plinth base. Sometimes when a tree for example is to be planted, it is better to omit the plinth base so that the roots can be accommodated directly in the ground. Another optional feature is the fork lift plinth base which has access points to take fork lift truck forks thereby allowing the planter to be moved around on site without difficulty.

The Square and Windsor are designed with an integral plinth which has four drainage holes, two of these can be used for ragbolting to the ground if required. The Hounslow, which is most effective when supplied in clusters, is supplied with or without base. The Quartet has a separate plinth and its oblong shape makes it ideal for forming a barrier when used in multiple runs. The Roman planters add a classical design to the range. The attractive fluted design is available in square and rectangular modules and is particularly suitable for more traditional or prestigious sites. Standard finish is smooth white concrete to highlight the fluting. All planters can have a smooth surface or an exposed aggregate finish. Standard aggregates are Ballidon or Natural Round however the units can be produced in any aggregate to special order and indeed the units can be considerably upgraded visually by the use of a white marble aggregate blended with coloured glass. Generally, the most popular finish is Ballidon, as the creamy coloured aggregate is well set off against the colours of the flowers and shrubs chosen for planting.

Cottage Trough

A trough is a traditional shape for planting and is a shape which is visually acceptable in all types of environment. Townscape offer a high level Farmyard trough which is parallel sided and a low level Cottage trough which has tapered sides. Both units are very heavy and robust, particularly when filled with plants and soil and can therefore be used as anti-ram raid barriers or as ‘open’ barriers keeping vehicles away from pedestrianised areas whilst allowing pedestrians access.

Farmyard Trough

This Planting Kerb is best used in conjunction with Townscape’s 600 x 400mm paving module. Each stacking kerb is made up of two pieces which, when placed together, form a 798 x 598mm outer edge to fit into a 800 x 600mm planting area. The kerb pieces are 200mm high by 65mm wide and can be stacked to a height suitable for planting. The kerb pieces are held together by a mortar joint. These units are handmade and supplied in a smooth white finish as standard.

RETAINING WALL This utility concrete element is available in a choice of exposed aggregate or simulated brick pattern face. A left and right mitred unit enables external 90 degree angles to be achieved making it possible to use these units as raised flower bed features as well as a purely functional retaining wall. This is a very practical product when used as a retaining wall as it takes up the minimum of ground or raised surface level. Also of importance, adequate draining channels are incorporated into the side joints. A larger size unit is also available for engineering applications.

METRO LITTER BINS The Metro litter bin is a companion product to the Metro Seat. Together they are the forerunners of a whole group of Metro products currently under development. The outer skin is formed by two matching perforated sheet metal components bearing the distinctive Millennium punching. These are joined and supported by a mild steel U-form echoing the theme of the broad seat armrests. Security for the liner is provided by a lightweight, hinged, aluminium top, controlled by a restrainer. The top locates to a locking device concealed within the U-form support. The 64 litre capacity zintec liner’s location is controlled by the interior profile of the outer container and has handgrips which project above the level of the liner contents, thus providing optimum safety for the servicing operative. The dimensions of the product have been carefully governed for ease of lifting the liner from the outer container. Both in-ground and on-ground fixing options are available, as are finishing choices, where the three major components can be matched or contrasted in colour to meet individual preference. Metro Townscapes extensive standard colour range of electrostatically deposited finishes offers a wide choice of possible combinations.

STEEL LITTER BINS This range of steel litter bins is designed with strength and durability as the foremost factors whilst maintaining a pleasing aesthetic appeal. By nature of the raw materials and manufacturing methods employed, the bins have a high level of both fire and vandal resistance. The Sheffield litter bin is an all steel construction in a neat and simple style to suit all types of application. The Bradmore bin has a hardwood slatted container body mounted on a steel pedestal. The pedestal is finished in antique brown as standard to enhance the richness of the Malaysian timber slats. Co-ordinating seats and benches are available. The Commander bin is a heavy-duty steel bin parallel sided to the ground. It has three recesses which can be painted in a contrasting colour to the rest of the bin to give a very smart appearance. This bin is popular when used in conjunction with the matching Commander seat and bollard range.

The problem of safe cigarette disposal is of major importance in many areas, particularly indoor sites such as shopping malls. Townscape offer several litter bins combined with ashtray facility but can also modify their square bollard to offer a slim, neat and attractive ashtray/cigarette disposal unit. The unit is purpose made for cigarettes only and will not accommodate other litter. The Dallas, a robust litter bin combining the strengths of cast iron, steel and wood. The bin is designed to be mounted directly into the ground or alternatively onto suitable floor surface. The supporting post is manufactured from substantial square section mild steel. The amply sized body frame is again fabricated in steel and then clad with vertical Sapele hardwood slats to give a soft look to a large capacity bin. The bin is capped with a cast iron frame, with square aperture for loading, that is firmly fixed into position and, can, if required, be painted a contrasting colour to the steel elements. A concealed push lock will allow access through side opening panel to remove / replace galvanised steel container, this has a capacity of 77 litres.

BALTIMORE LITTER BINS This litter bin is available in four versions, Major, Major Half Round, Minor and Minor Half Round. All four incorporate the circular porthole feature which can be used for mounting a customised plaque. The bins all have an inner sleeve fixed to the frame which can be finished in a contrasting colour if required. Fixing points are standard in the base of the frame for securing the bins to the ground. The Half Round is wall-mounted; to ensure stability. The Major and Minor have various optional tops including a G.R.P. canopy, or ashtray facility. All the bins have galvanised steel sheet liners to ensure resistance to corrosion. For additional details of the litter bins and other coordinated products, please refer to the Baltimore brochure.

TRUMPET LITTER BINS This range of four designs in two capacities is based on the distinctive trumpet containers. The flared top of the container from which the range derives its name adds strength as well as contributing to the stylish appearance of the designs. These products are suitable for interior or exterior use, are easy to service and have a functional versatility. The design Slick is the simplest of the units, having a container permanently fixed to a base ring mounted to either an in or on ground post. A mild steel ring is supplied to retain a plastic liner bag within the circumference of the Trumpet top of the container. Gripper is a variation of Slick in that it has a container retained in the base ring by a locking clamp which co-incidentally also secures the plastic liner bag retaining ring. As an optional extra Gripper can be provided with a stainless steel lift up flap mounted to the locking clamp to conceal the bin contents. Tipper has a stainless steel gravity top that conceals the litter contents and is pivoted between two upright pedestals. The proximity of the container to the gravity top provides security for the plastic liner bag and its contents. A lock concealed within one of the pedestals locates with a keeper on the container, locking it in the vertical position. The tipping action facilitates the easy removal of the loaded plastic liner. In or on ground fixed models are available.

Slick

Topper is a variation of Tipper in that a plain steel plate closes the top and the pedestal legs are extended in height to allow side entry of the litter. The pivot action and the locking device is identical to that used for the Tipper. As an optional extra the unit can be supplied with an ashtray to add to its functional versatility.

CAST IRON LITTER BINS The York Major and York Minor litter bins have many features making them ideal for use in a high vandal risk area. The litter bins have a distinctive style and make maximum use of the interior space to give extra capacity to the liner. Manufacturing in non-breakable ductile cast iron allows for a much finer detail in design which would not be possible in ordinary grey iron. The front opening door on both units pivots on two stainless steel hinge pins to ensure smooth operation and long life. The York Major has a camlock type of lock whereas the York Minor has a push lock. The solid sheet liner is galvanised and offers a 140 litre capacity in the York Major and a 80 litre capacity in the York Minor. The liner sits on two runners in the base of the bins to facilitate easy emptying. There are also fixing holes in the base of the bins for ground fixing if required. Standard finish is black polyester powder coating with gold highlighting decoration. Other colours are available to special order. York Major

TIMBER LITTER BINS The Toledo bin is an unusual timber litter bin manufactured from alternating emery and sapele slats mounted on an internal steel frame with steel corner posts ensuring absolute rigidity, because of this method of construction, the bin is extremely strong and heavy. The Toledo design follows the sturdy line of the co-ordinating seat, bench and planter and is supplied complete with galvanised liner which has holes in the base to ensure adequate drainage. The Maldon litter bin has a slatted outer mounted on an internal steel frame. The unit can be wall-mounted or mounted on a concrete plinth.

RECYCLED PLASTIC This robust but elegant 70 litre capacity litter bin is formed from square sections of recycled plastic mounted to a steel sub frame that has four fixing holes for bolting to the ground if required. As standard, the recycled material is a charcoal black with a colour feature showing between the slats accentuating the corners. As an optional extra this feature could be continued between each intermediate slat. The steel plinth and top rim are polyester powder coated to match. The top rim is left open as standard although an optional cover with a hinged lid combined with ashtray section is also available. The removable liner can be supplied in sheet steel, wire mesh or fibreglass. The latter is supplied coloured black as standard although other fibreglass colours can be supplied depending on the quantity required. The steel zintec liners can also be supplied (to special order) in a polyester powder coating. This bin forms part of the Eco range and therefore offers matching products. Please refer to the Eco range brochure for full details.

BIN 2000 This new concept has originated from Holland and is being marketed in the U.K. exclusively by Townscape. The litter bin is an all steel construction and it has a unique emptying method. This method has been extensively researched throughout Europe to devise a way of removing litter from a container without the operative having to touch the bin or its contents and without the need of having a lock and key to secure the liner to the bin. With a single, simple movement, a lightweight (polyethylene and aluminium) collecting liner is hooked to the base of the litter bin releasing the lock. By pulling the collecting liner forward, the litter falls out of the Bin 2000 into the collecting liner (total volume 90 litres) which is then unhooked. The Bin 2000 falls back to lock automatically and the litter in the collecting liner is disposed of into the waste vehicle. This new method of emptying a litter bin requires considerably less effort as there is no inner liner to put back into position, this also has the advantage of less handling and no hand contact with the litter. The collecting liner is bright yellow making it highly visible to traffic and increasing the operative’s safety. This design is currently pending patent. The bin is post mounted and has a capacity of 60 litres or two bins can be mounted back to back on one post.

CONCRETE LITTER BINS Concrete bins remain a popular choice as the exposed aggregate finish is difficult to deface and this material weathers naturally in all types of environment even coastal. The Standard Round Bin is a design most favoured by Local Authorities whilst the Bloc 750 and Bloc 900 Mark II offer a square format for fitting into a right angle. The Highwayman is a large capacity bin consisting of a mild steel bulkhead frame clad with concrete panels and G.R.P. lockable doors. The Duo and Single Tier with their G.R.P. gravity feed canopies offer the choice of a large or small litter capacity. The Braunton and Sutton are competitively priced but at the same time offer a large capacity unit. Drainage holes are provided through the base of each precast concrete unit, two of which can be used for permanent fixing to the ground if required. Additionally, drainage holes are provided in the sides of the units to allow drainage in the case of the bins being fixed permanently into the ground.

Braunton

Certain concrete bins can be produced to incorporate a sponsorship or customised plaque. All bins produced in precast concrete are supplied complete with a wire basket which is plastic coated in white as standard. The basket is of robust construction and features a solid sheet metal base to prevent litter falling through the bottom of the basket. The basket can be secured to the bin by a security chain if required. If preferred a solid sheet metal liner can be supplied to special order. The Braunton and Sutton bins have alternatives to a basket in the form of an internal fitting ring to use in conjunction with a disposable bag.

G.R.P. canopies have been designed to fit certain litter bins. A circular canopy with three side apertures is available for the Braunton and Sutton, in which “push-in� locks are incorporated during casting. This allows canopy attachment with original delivery or later uprating of litter bins on site. The Bloc 900 MK II and Bloc 750 are offered with a gravity feed design of canopy, and likewise for the Single and Duo Tier on which the canopy also has the word LITTER. All G.R.P. canopies can be produced in a RAL colour with a smooth, wipe clean surface. They are extremely durable and robust, and can also be reinforced if extra strength is required. Many of the concrete planter designs can be provided with a liner for use as a litter bin if required. Bloc 750

LOCKS AND LINERS All Townscape precast concrete litter bins are supplied as standard complete with a wire basket type of liner finished in white plastic coating. The steel, cast iron and timber litter bins are supplied with either a galvanised or zintec solid steel liner which also has a galvanised appearance. Liners supplied with perforated steel litter bins will be powder coated in pale grey as standard. All types of liner, have a fully plated bottom to prevent litter falling through, and drainage holes. Where the design includes a door opening system for emptying, a lock is fitted as a standard feature alternative styles of litter bin can be supplied with locking devices if required. Concrete bins can have their wire basket secured to the bin unit by use of a chain. For specific details on locking mechanisms, please contact our sales or technical department.

A.B.B. ANTI BOMB BIN For many years, Townscape has manufactured an anti-bomb litter bin which has a proven track record from both official testing and daily use on the streets of South African cities. This concrete bin is manufactured with a specially formulated material which is currently the subject of a patent. The surface finish of the bin gives the appearance of fine textured concrete which can be left plain or painted to any RAL colour. Alternatively the bin can be produced with a rugged ribbed pattern on the outer surface, this version is known as the Baltic bin. The Sutton and Braunton bins are usually produced in this formula as standard however other concrete bin designs can also be provided.

CITIZEN RANGE The Citizen Plantas have generous chamfers and radiused corners which have been designed to show off the Prestige concrete mix which can be toned or contrasted with the steel collars finished in a choice of colours. The Planta forms are made to a common section based on three plan sizes 750, 1000 and 1500mm. The plinth sections, finished in fair-faced concrete to match the matrix of the mix, incorporate a shallow reserve for moisture retention. Self-watering units are available as an optional extra. All components have lifting points on the Plantas interior faces cast into the body of the unit. Lift components one at a time not as assembled units. For greater design flexibility, seats and planters can be coordinated, by mounting the seat or bench components to a special beam-mounting between two Planta container units. The Citizen range offers seating units, litter bins and bollards to co-ordinate with the Plantas. Treated hardwood, polyester coated mild steel and aluminium accessories are complemented by units made in Townscape’s unique Prestige concrete mix. This subtle blend of 6mm aggregates adds a new aesthetic dimension to the material. The metal collars on the Plantas are finished in electrostatically deposited powder which is stoved to a hard durable finish. Citizen Mainline The Quadra litter bin forms part of the Citizen range of planters, seats, bench and bollards. This 60 litre capacity

bin has a non-breakable (ductile) cast iron plinth bolted to in-situ anchors in the concrete container. This container can be finished in a choice of exposed aggregates to contrast or co-ordinate with the colour of the plinth. The top of the container can be left open for conventional loading of litter, or as an option, a steel lockable, removable cover and ashtray can be fitted. The steel cover is polyester powder coated to match the plinth colour and the ashtray facility is stainless steel. Alternatively a dual side-entry steel canopy top with an optional ashtray is offered.

CONCOURSE RANGE This range relies on the use of two basic units, a circular unit and an interlocking unit, linking together horizontally. The interlocking unit is of similar dimensions to the circular unit, but with two equal and opposite arcuate portions removed allowing it to mate two adjoining circular units. The concave surfaces of the interlocking unit engages with the convex surfaces of the circular unit, preventing lateral movement, providing stability, and allowing flexibility in layout. The interlocking design is protected by British Patent No. 2077796. Each of the circular and interlocking units comprises a base, bottom ring and extension ring. These rings are designed to receive component parts such as seats and litter tops. The horizontal joints are formed with a unique profile that provides rigidity when units are stacked on each other, and prevents capillary action when used as planters. Seating is designed to bolt onto interlocking and circular units. Hardwood or G.R.P. squab seats can be added to a single circular or interlocking unit which is at the ideal sit-upon height. Alternatively a hardwood straddle bench can be fitted between a pair of circular units, although the method of fixing will restrict the degree of flexibility. A litter bin is formed by fitting a G.R.P. circular top onto either a single or double circular base depending on how great a litter capacity is required. The top is also of a gravity feed design which helps to eliminate overflow of litter. The word litter is moulded into the G.R.P. top. A solid G.R.P. top for the circular unit allows for a multi-functional purpose. The fitting of solid tops allows a row of units to act as walling in lieu of planters. These tops can double up as seating or can be used as bases for posts carrying direction information, traffic signs or as a mount for lighting components from proprietary sources. In pedestrian precincts a unified layout can be obtained providing secluded seating areas with decorative physical barriers to guide pedestrians and prevent vehicular access. Their flexibility allows them to follow a curved carriageway edge serving as a guard-rail and planting display.

22


Self-Levelling Plinth Units A problem that has to be overcome in setting out most street furniture, such as planter units, is the natural highway gradients and crossfalls provided to facilitate surface water drainage. The Concourse Suite self-levelling plinths (British Registered Design Nos. 1038018 and 1038019) have been developed to give an added dimension to a linked system of street furniture, in that the plinth can be laid onto any slope up to 1:10 gradient and the ring section will self-level to horizontal. The design utilises the principal of a ball joint, the external surfaces of the plinth having the contours of a sphere on which rests the bottom circular ring of the container or walling unit. At the top edge of this spherical surface is an almost vertical circular rim, which limits the extent of movement of the circular container unit in any direction, retaining its bottom edge to the spherical surface of the plinth. On most highways and paved areas a gradient or crossfall of 1:10 would be considered the maximum on which this type of street furniture would be suitable for use. When installing planter units on site the circular container unit is located onto its spherical surfaces of the plinth, and adjusted to its horizontal position. The unit is held in position by filling with mortar, the gap formed between the inside of the circular unit, the spherical surface, and the circular rim. This gap will vary in width depending on the angle at which the plinth is laid. The interlocking plinths have a spherical surface of similar design over their external arcs, allowing the bottom interlocking unit the same degree of movement to be levelled horizontally. The portion of the plinth adjoining the two opposing arcs that mate with the circular units is reduced in thickness to avoid obstructing the bottom edge of the unit above it when taking up deviations from the horizontal.

STANDARD COLOURS A standard range of 18 RAL colours is available as illustrated here, black and white are also offered as standard colours. Other RAL colours can be supplied subject to special quotation. It should be noted that all manmade or natural materials will lose some of their original qualities over a period of time due to the effects of exposure to the sun or ultra-violet rays (UV). The pigment and paint system researched and developed by Townscape are to the highest specification and will give exceptional retention of original colour for many years. The resins are UV stable and the pigments are UV fast. Typical results for intensive testing show the white paint to satisfy a 3 year Florida test with no creaming or chalking.

MATERIALS AND FINISHING Steel All steel parts conform to BS4360 43A or 43C. Mild steel is a very versatile material that retains its properties after manufacturing processes such as cutting, bending and welding. It is these properties that allow the basic design features to be recreated throughout. During their finishing process, steel products will be shotblasted to SA 2.5/3.0 or acid cleaned prior to electro zinc plating. This process will provide an even deposit of zinc and zinc alloy over the whole surface of the material. The product is then chrome passivated and rinsed, this improves the surface finish and ensures maximum chemical adhesion of subsequent polyester finishes. Plating is applied to a minimum thickness of 15 microns. The sacrificial and sealing action of the zinc prevents any rust staining if severely damaged.

Cast Iron Cast iron products undergo two fettling and two shotblasting processes to remove all surface imperfections and surface contamination. A two pack epoxy grey primer is then applied with d.f.t. of 50/75 microns. This paint conforms to BS 5493 and BS4652 Type 3. It will withstand exterior exposure for three years and will not break down at 2000 hours salt spray testing.

Polyester Powder Coating Following their priming process, steel and cast iron products are polyester powder coated by electrostatic process which ensures complete coverage. The powder will give a d.f.t. of 75 microns. The polyester powder has been thoroughly tested under controlled conditions. Samples tested for resistance to salt spray, humidity and water soak at 40 degrees centigrade showed no breakdown and were resistant to most acids, alkalis and oils. Exterior exposure tests to BS 3900 Part 2 showed minimal loss of gloss and colour after 2000 hours. Similar results were obtained with a 12 month Florida exposure (45 degree angle). The standard range of colours offered by Townscape has been developed combining the latest polyester resin and pigment technology to produce a product with excellent decorative effect and superior outdoor durability.

Timber All timbers are machined from quality hardwood originating from carefully husbanded forests of Africa and Malaysia. The timber is exceptionally smooth grained, however, all hardwoods are susceptible to splits and shakes appearing over the course of time. All timber components are coated with high quality wood treatment before assembly and despatch.

35


Concrete Mineral rocks, gravels and sands used in Townscape concrete products come from natural sources and are obtained and used in a crushed or graded form to achieve the desired colour or texture in the final finish. Cements used in manufacture are Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) or White |Portland Cement (Snowcrete) all of which comply with BS12;1991. Aggregates are naturally occurring materials, crushed or uncrushed, complying with the quality requirements of BS 882 : 1992 or alternatively coarse aggregates which comply with clause 5 of BS 1047 : 1983. All quarried materials vary from time to time in colour and texture, these variations however do not affect the technical soundness of the product. Colour of aggregates may also vary when in a wet or dry state. The batching of concrete is carried out in modern weigh-batching machinery, computer controlled, with probes in all aggregates to ensure careful control of water content. The result is consistent batching to uniform specification. The accuracy of the products is ensured by the use of high quality master patterns and then moulds used in the casting operation. Each product is vibrocast and subsequently hand finished ensuring conformity of surface finish. Mild steel bar or mesh reinforcement is used in some street furniture products for the purpose of holding together larger fragments of concrete in the event of impact to the product.

MAINTENANCE All Townscape products require a minimum of maintenance and aftercare. A regular inspection to verify ground fixings and inspection of the finished coatings of both metal and timber components is essential. Damage to paintwork can be remedied by application of a suitable primer and topcoat with compatible products. It should also be noted that after outdoor exposure, all treated timbers can fade through the action of sunlight, rain and stain migration. To restore timber components to their original condition and maintain the level of wood preservation, a regular maintenance programme must be established.
