The Safer-By-Design Bin has been designed to pre-empt terrorism and negate perceived threat without disruption to other services in the proximity. The bin incorporates a number of attributes to achieve this goal including:
- High visibility front and side panels which, combined with the shallow depth, ensure easy natural surveillance of content.
- Profiled front face which draws the eye not only to the advertising or signage but by virtue of its shape encourages natural surveillance of the contents of the bin.
- Fast decommissioning capability and easy x-ray facility for ease and safety of use in high alert situations.
The bin also features anti-graffiti finishes, restricted aperture to constrain the size of items to be inserted and a 90 litre capacity. The modular system has a quick release to reduce replacement cost and make maintenance easier. The bin can be wall mounted or free standing in single, double or quad configuration.
The Safer-By-Design-Bin was developed by researchers from the UTS Designing-Out-Crime research centre and led to the development of the bins that can be seen in many major train stations in Sydney.
The Safer-By-Design-Bin is patent pending in the USA and Australia.
We are seeking manufacturers with an interest in licensing the manufacturing rights to this innovative design.
