Kardinia Park (Simonds stadium)

Entrance Matting
Victoria | Sports & Entertainment

Project overview: Kardinia Park (formerly Simonds Stadium) is a sporting and entertainment venue located within Kardinia Park, South Geelong, Victoria. The stadium, which is owned and operated by the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust, is the home ground of the Geelong Football Club. The capacity of Kardinia Park is 34,000, making it the largest capacity Australian stadium in a regional city (i.e., outside a capital city).

With hundreds of thousands of footfalls expected annually, the infrastructure needs to be built with due consideration for facility access to people of all ages and abilities (including those with some form of physical impairment). In addition, the entrances and stairs need to ensure safe passage for people during wet days, while keeping the facility aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Classic solution:

Tapping into the wide range of floor safety products, Classic was able to provide a solution for enhancing the safety and access at the Kardinia Stadium that included Vantt 5500 as the entrance matting of choice to ensure increasing retention of dirt and moisture, DKR104 heavy duty aluminium stair nosing complete with yellow carborundum inserts enhancing the safety on stairs across the stadium, 300x300mm Poly and Stainless Steel individual tactile (SH10N) to provide adequate guidance for the visually impaired and stainless steel folded cover strip to avoid tripping.

Products: Entrance matting, Stair Nosing, Tactile, Cover strips

Application highlights: External application of stair nosing, External and internal application of tactile, Internal application of entrance mat for medium to high level of foot and wheel traffic.

Access and safety enhanced (Key benefits)

– Despite high level of foot/wheeled traffic, moisture and dirt removal at entrance, keeping the facility clean and safe for fans, players and employees

– Safe passage for fans, players and employees in the stands and on stairs across the facility

– Enhanced access experience for visually impaired
