ASF are unique in the street furniture industry in that they are part of WB White Foundry, a UK based, working engineering foundry that has a long history of producing not only great street furniture, but also cutting edge engineering components, sculptures and bespoke pieces of art, design and decor. ASF therefore have the capability to not only make you a standard range product in a range of materials at prices direct from the factory, but also work on any project from the ground up, from the very start to the very end.
The term 'concept to reality' is widely used in this industry - but ASF can actually offer this in a completely hands-on manner.
Building on over 150 years combined experience of casting, ASF (Architectural Street Furnishings), have for over 20 years been expanding resources and skill base to off a diverse and flexible range of products in a complete range of materials and styles.
From traditional hand castings, to the use of 21st Century materials creating modern and dynamic spaces, ASF captures and reflects the environment it inhabits.
Products are all made to order and to customer specifications, even standard range products. These can all be adapted to be DDA compliant as well as strengthened for security and ram raid protection, to house signage, or be adapted for other uses. Bollards, for example, can be fold-down, removable or telescopic, ASF can also add lighting units to make many of their bollards illuminated, they can be converted into post and rail, post and panel, cycle stands, door protection - the list goes on. This kind of flexibility combined with customer specificity makes ASF's product range for all intents and purposes inexhaustive.
