Perth Children’s Hospital
Safe and Vivid Coloured Shared Pathway
for Bicycle and Pedestrian Traffic
Slip Resistant & Low Maintenance
The Kids Bridge was designed to create a pedestrian link between the Perth Children’s Hospital and Kings Park facilitating access to WA’s premier parkland allowing a place for relaxation and reflection for hospital staff, patients and visitors.
The bridge extends over the tree canopy providing a tree top walk and viewing platform across the park towards the city.
The designers wanted users to be treated to a highly colourful structure reflective of the colourful Perth Children’s Hospital logo with visual aspects that change as users move across or underneath the twisting forms.
Antiskid’s expert staff liaised closely with the designers, Main Roads WA and the builders to provide a solution.
Antiskid Industries recommended installing the OMNIGRIP Deco Surfacing System to the shared pathway. We then worked closely together with our suppliers and the designers to specifically manufacture the correct colours for the project.
Deco is not only economical and ensures optimum safety for users but is also aesthetically pleasing, and in harmony with the surrounding environment.
The Omnigrip Deco has been topped with a UV Sealer to promote long design life and assist in maintaining the cleanliness of the installation. This solution is low maintenance and will continue to be a dynamic feature for many years to come with minimal maintenance requirements for the Perth Children’s Hospital.
All told, an outstanding solution.
