How Classic has been improving public safety across all sectors, with versatility and agility

Whether it’s installing tactile indicators for railway stations, stair nosing for workplaces or custom commercial entrance matting for large sports and recreation facilities, Classic offers comprehensive expertise and certainty in supply. We can complement your goals with proven service including consultation, design, manufacture, supply and installation.

Transport Sector

safe access for railway projects

Public transport hubs, such as train stations, bus stops and tram stops, are busy, high-traffic areas with thousands of commuters on a daily basis. The installation of tactile ground surface indicators (TGSIs) play a crucial navigator and environmental cue, particular for those with vision impairments.

Classic supplies warning tactile indicators to alert pedestrians to impending hazards, as well as directional tactile indicators to provide directional orientation, empowering confident mobility within urban environments.

Education Sector

From childcare centres to universities, our team ensures safe access for our future’s upcoming, bright stars and their facilitators. We’ve supported large-scale redevelopment projects, new builds and enhancements to existing spaces, providing safe passage for teaching staff, students and onsite visitors.

Health Sector

Healthcare facilities see a high volume of foot traffic, but also require safe wheelchair access for patients and visitors of all ages and abilities. Aged care facilities, hospitals and nursing homes require entrances and stairs that promote hygiene, safety and easy access.

With heavy footfalls expected, main entrances, exits and walkways require heavy-duty commercial entrance matting that maintains the building’s presentation while retaining dirt, grit and moisture. On the other hand, non-slip stair treads and tactile indicators ensure smart looks and safety for access stairs and ramp areas.

Work Places

Government offices and places of work provide employment opportunities and long-term job growth for local communities. Employers and employees are responsible for maintaining the health and safety of workplaces, minimising work-related injuries and potential risks.

Investing in the future of regional Victoria, the Victorian Government recently established a new GovHub in the City of Ballarat. A one-stop shop for customers and a hub for local activity, the Development Victoria project was a joint effort between John Wardle Architects, Kane Construction Pty Ltd and Nicholson Construction. Classic Architectural Group was proud to play a role in this significant project, supplying and installing public access and safety solutions. Products implemented included our Classic Tredfx GKR030, SBR104, DKR104, SH10N and PT30A stair nosings and tactiles.

Sports & Recreational Facilities

A central sports precinct of international standing, the Sydney Cricket Ground hosts nearly 100 sports and concert events, attracting more than 1.5 million visitors each year. Classic was engaged to supply our Integra Vantt entrance matting, ensuring hard-wearing durability against the traffic load while offering unparalleled performance in dirt and moisture removal.
