Installing cycle parking areas:
This kind of furniture benefits smokers and non-smokers alike. By encouraging smokers to use designated smoking shelters, you can prevent people congregating by your entrances and exits, which can deter non-smokers from using your business. Additionally, smokers can have shelter from the wind and the rain, improving their smoke-break experience. Finally, using a shelter in conjunction with an ashtray/cigarette bin can be key to keeping your floors free from unsightly ash and cigarette ends.
These strong and sturdy posts are a great way of protecting buildings and personnel from the dangers of reckless drivers. Using traditional metal bollards or stainless steel bollards along the side of a footpath or pedestrian zone will minimise the risk of cars hitting staff or customers.

First Mats street furniture is available in different styles and colours to ensure the right aesthetic finish for your environment.
