We understand that every project is unique, with its own particular challenges and requirements. To ensure that we offer the best solution for your specific needs, our sales and engineering teams will guide you through our time proven product specification process.

  1. 01.

    Our products are 100% Australian made in our 3000sqm factory in Bayswater, Victoria.

  2. 02.

    304 grade stainless steel is adequate for outdoor applications in non-corrosive environments. 316 marine grade stainless steel is suitable for applications where outdoor furniture is installed in more corrosive environments (Coastal, Heavy Urban etc). Electropolishing either of these materials further increases the resistance to corrosion.

  3. 03.

    Mild steel does not have a corrosion resistant layer, and if directly painted, and left out in Australia’s harsh climate, will start corroding under the paint within weeks of installation. The galvanising process adds a protective layer that allows the furniture to last a very long time in Australian conditions.

  4. 04.

    We use the highest grade of Australian Spotted gum, selected to last under in all weather for a very long time. Routine maintenance may be needed in order to maintain the timbers appeal. Composite timber is an engineered material, made from a mix of recycled timber pulp and recycled plastics. The effect is a convincing substitute for timber that needs little to no maintenance.

  5. 05.

    All our products can be modified to suit your application. Need the height of a table changed? No problem. Need one of our bench models 5 metres long? Can do! Alternatively, we can work with you to create original designs that will work with your space. Our sales team, engineers, machinery processes and talented floor staff all show flexibility in their approach to our products, that makes us the best in the industry!

  6. 06.

    As all products can be modified to suit the application, materials, colours, dimensions etc.. we make all orders from scratch. The manufacturing process starts after the goods are ordered. This allows us to tailor our products to your exact needs.

  7. 07.

    Yes, we manufacture commercial grade street furniture, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be installed in the backyard. Keep in mind this is commercial grade furniture and may be more expensive than lighter duty products not designed for public use.
