The project amounts to the renovation of Hill and Monaghan streets in this historic town (and recently city) known for its popular trade industry and the Newry Marathon. Hartecast’
Says Harry Harte, Managing Director of Hartecast: “As continuous trade and tourism is essential to the city, a speedy implementation with as little possible public disturbance was of the essence in this project. Add to this the annual Newry Marathon, which sees hordes of runners occupying the main streets, and the Olympic Flame Procession both in June this year, and the need we had for a carefully planned installation phase is evident.”
Hartecast’s contribution to the aesthetically pleasing new look of the two main streets and public areas in Newry Public Realm consisted of bollards, seats, cycle stands and litter bins. The bins were a light grey version of the very popular HC2023 with its fantastic ability to withstand mechanical impact, anti-vandal hinge mechanism and a heavy duty sealed plastic liner which prevents liquids from leaking out. These features and their stylish appearance which easily blends into the rest of the decor made it the ideal bin for the job.
The seats are a combination of the HC2023 and a new addition to the range, the HC2026C. This ductile iron bench in light grey and teak stained hardwood timber features anti-tamper, 316 grade stainless steel fixtures and fittings, as well as surface mounted supports. These attributes once again making it the perfect piece of street furniture to deliver aesthetic appeal and durability in this densely utilised public area.
Adds Harte: “Our range of quality street furniture is stylish, versatile, robust and designed for durability. We use the highest standards of manufacturing techniques and have a passion for excellence in product engineering.”
