“ Our selection is not based on price alone, we also took into consideration the safety and saving aspects. ZERO WASTE Unbreakable Foundations allow quick replacement of items with no further effort required to the base, (providing a significant cost benefit in replacing the damaged item by re-using the existing footing) and reducing risk of injury to employees by reducing time spent on traffic islands exposed to traffic.”

THE OLD WAY

This is an example of MRWA traditional methods

ZERO WASTE INSTALL

These posts were installed on ZERO WASTE Foundations more than 25 years ago and the foundations remain in pristine condition.

ZERO WASTE FOUNDATIONS

Main Roads WA has been using ZERO WASTE Foundations for more than decade to improve resilience of the network and efficiency of replacements

The implementation of ZERO WASTE Foundations has seen a marked improvement in the cleanliness and safety of our roads in WA.

Shown here is a ZERO WASTE Foundation in asphalt that remains in pristine condition after more than a decade, following multiple impacts.

ZERO WASTE TRAFFIC ISLANDS

Shown here is a ZERO WASTE Foundation in a traffic island in the middle of one of WA's most busy roads.

 

The Keep Left sign has been removed and the ground socket capped off.

 

After more than a decade you can see that the traffic island remains in pristine condition, after more than ten years and multiple impacts

ZERO WASTE KEEP LEFT SIGNS

CHS and FRP posts are approved for use by MRWA contractors, providing not only improved efficiency, but enormous savings.

 

Shown here, directional signage installed using ZERO WASTE Foundations protecting the surrounding paving and concrete from damage for the entire lifespan of the development.

This ZERO WASTE Foundation has been installed for three decades and remains in perfect condition today.

ZERO WASTE HAZARD MARKERS

Small Traffic signs are installed using ZERO WASTE Foundations protecting the surrounding paving and concrete from damage for the entire lifespan of the development.

Save even more using FRP Posts.

ZERO WASTE GRAB-RAILS

Grab-rails are frequently installed on ZERO WASTE Foundations by both state and local government authorities for both new works and retro-fits.

They are easy to spot - not only are the foundations neat and tidy, but because they are installed using friction they do not become loose or unstable over time, remaining perfectly aligned, safe and secure year after year

ZERO WASTE BOLLARDS

ZERO WASTE Traffic and pedestrian bollards are secured on ZERO WASTE Foundations and are easily removed by authorised persons to allow access; for wide loads or maintenance.

The ones shown here were installed more than decade ago and remain pristine condition (despite several major impacts). Click below to see photos of projects and updates on this project.

ZERO WASTE STOP SIGNS

STOP Signs are vital for safety on our roads and damaged or missing signs must be quickly replaced to avoid possibly fatal accidents.

ZERO WASTE Foundations enable Main Roads operators to remove the damaged sign and replace it within seconds of arriving on site, greatly improving the safety and efficiency of their workers and our roads.

Flexi-posts now approved (FRP) for use on MRWA Projects - secured using ZERO WASTE Foundations

DOUBLE POSTED SIGNS

No sign is too big for the ZERO WASTE Foundations. The ground socket forms protective shield in the concrete footing and when a post is impacted the energy is initially absorbed by the ZERO WASTE Foundations protecting the footing from damage.

 

The energy is then transferred to the footing that must be large enough to ensure it is not dislodged 

ROUNDABOUT SIGNAGE

Main Roads WA has installed thousands of ZERO WASTE Foundations to secure signs from small Keep left to large double posted signs. 

For signs such as this (often vulnerable to clipping by vehicles or trucks) MRWA has begun installing our ZERO WASTE Flexi-posts to further reduce maintenance

NO DAMAGE WHEN IMPACTED 

No damage to footings when posts (up to 5mm wall thickness) are impacted by a vehicle.

 

Shown here is a row of 2.9 walled post that was severely impacted at high speed. The footings remained in tact and the bollards were simply levered out and replaced in less than five minutes.

More than decade later- they remain in excellent condition.

 

* Footings must be installed according to instructions

EVEN PAVED AREAS

Shown MRWA grab rail after impact- you will notice no damage to the pavement. The grab rails is simply levered out using an ergonomic tool, and the self-locking taper can be removed from the damaged item and re-used to install a new grab rail.

 

When installed correctly, items that are impacted will bend at ground level without damage to the pavement or traffic island. At higher speeds the post will bend more easily, making ZERO WASTE Foundations suitable for any speed.

In paved areas we recommend a maximum of 4 mm wall thickness steel.

INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR

At last sustainability makes good business sense

Built in obsolescence is standard practice - but we decided it's time to put an end to this madness.

 

Previously only used in the Aerospace industry, we have utilised the latest advanced materials and manufacturing processes to  produce a range of products that are designed to continue working impact after impact, year after year, saving you thousands over the life of a development
