Our current economy is linear, take-make-waste! A circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. It entails gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system. Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular model builds economic, natural, and social capital. It is based on three principles:
The benefits of using a leasing scheme are many.
Urban can review your individual needs and develop a leasing program for you. Leasing is an effective way to manage capital costs as well as future proofing against major technology or legislation change. Leasing can also help ensure asset life is maximised and provide a “hassle free” experience.

The short answer is that not all of our fountains are AS1428 compliant, but all of our Apollo range of fountains are disabled accessible. We do not state disabled compliant as we do not believe that the AS1428 standard is sufficient to cater to the needs of all disabled users.
There is no one size fits all approach to disability and wheelchair access. Wheelchairs can range from low sporty and child size wheelchairs to large bulky electric wheelchairs which would not fit easily under the current height in the standard.
All of our original fountains have been designed with input from the Paraquad society who believe the access code is discriminatory and not suitable for a majority of disabled users. Therefore, we have designed a range of fountains that suit a range of disabilities and various wheelchair access heights.
We supply hundreds of fountains each year to Councils throughout Australia and most agree that the access code needs to be considered when choosing a fountain but a practical approach needs to be taken to ensure that the fountain is suitable to the majority of its end users.
We are able to finish in timber, aluminium, composite or recycled plastic battens on most products. Some limitations apply, please contact us for more information.
