Smart Taper

 

Make the transition from working hard to working Smart!

All roadside items are vulnerable to damage, with over 200,000 concrete footings, traffic islands and pavements repeatedly replaced year after year

MRWA is now encouraging contractors to install roadside items on Smart sustainable foundations (and retro-fit one foundation at a time)

On new works you can install the infrastructure (posts/grab-rails/ bollards/columns) for an entire development, in a single day - Make the transition from working hard to working Smart!

"The solution is so simple"

“ Our selection is not based on price alone, we also took into consideration the safety & saving aspects. 

The Smart Sustainable Foundations allow quick replacement of posts with no further effort required to the base, (providing a significant cost benefit in replacing the damaged sign post by re-using the existing footing ) and reduces risk of injury to employees by reducing time spent on traffic islands exposed to traffic.”   MAIN ROADS DEPT WA

We repeatedly replace more than 200,0000 concrete footings year after year with 100% of the concrete going to landfill

Yet all this waste and hard work provides no future benefit 

We repeat what we do not repair- So each year the amount of damaged items, the disturbance, the consumption of carbon resources and resulting landfill, the costs and the risks continue to grow

FAST EFFICIENT INSTALLS

_____________________ 

Smart Ground sockets can be installed by simply positioning upright when when pouring concrete footings, (or retrofitted) creating a perfect finish that remains in pristine condition for the entire lifespan of a development

SAVE TIME & MONEY
__________________

Items are simply dropped into the ground socket, automatically locking in, perfectly aligned, remaining safe and secure year after year

Instead of taking weeks, the infrastructure for an entire development can be installed in a single day

 

 

 

 

NO DAMAGE WHEN IMPACTED
_____________________

Posts bend at ground level with no damage to surrounding asphalt, paving or concrete foundations.

Flattened and sheared off posts - not a problem! Items can be easily levered up enough to break the seal and removal tool used as usual to remove the item

All work is performed quickly and efficiently from a standing position, using ergonomic  tools, substantially reducing the costs and risks associated with maintenance

OVERCOME COMMON PROBLEMS
________________________________

Eradicating many variables that can ruin any well planned budget, improving your ability to deliver projects on time and on-budget. 

No major traffic management, digging or heavy labour, no disturbance to underground services, no costly delays, no waste or tipping fees. 

Once Smart Sustainable Foundations are installed, the only cost is labour,  greatly reducing the risk of cost overruns
