Aesthetically pleasing, crash-tested street furniture: why functional will no longer do

Aesthetically pleasing, crash-tested street furniture: why functional will no longer do

This Marshalls-sponsored trend report examines the market for crash-tested street furniture, specifically procurement trends and the views of architects, security professionals and other specifiers on the importance of aesthetics.

Recent terror attacks in Paris and Berlin, as well as periodic incidents of drunk or reckless drivers veering off the road, have tragically highlighted why crowded places such as shopping centres, plazas and sports stadia perimeters increasingly need crash-tested barriers that can resist the force of moving vehicles.

But Marshalls, the UK’s leading hard landscaping manufacturer and street furniture specialist, believes that traditional forms of protective street furniture can often be too imposing and have a detrimental effect on a landscape’s visual appeal. To test this assumption, we polled hundreds of architects, consultants, security professionals, facilities managers and specifiers on three key areas:

  • Their procurement habits
  • Their perception of the products on the market and how things are changing
  • And what kind of products they would like to see on the market

Analysing the results IFSEC Global and Marshalls have put together a report: ‘Aesthetically pleasing, crash-tested street furniture: why functional will no longer do’.
