IPL group provides a competitive source for high-quality road products and
street furniture. Our RETENTION SYSTEM foundation sockets and Rivers
range of street furniture are made in Ireland and are widely used throughout
the country in the design, maintenance and management of public realm
infrastructure from rural villages to urban streetscapes and national roads.
In Ireland, we have long-established relationships with all local authorities and
public transport agencies. Together we have worked on many successful
projects which include active travel, pedestrian and cycle infrastructure, to
meet the continued modal shift from car to either walking or cycling. IPL
group is constantly sourcing new products and developing solutions for the
reallocation of road space and junction modification to facilitate mixed-use
commute corridors, safe segregated cycling lanes, raised pedestrian crossings
and reduced road width at crossing points. We also have solutions for
greenways, safe routes to schools, school warning systems, bicycle parking
and school spill-out and drop-off areas.
To ensure the success of your active travel projects and sustainable
infrastructure design, we make it our job to understand local area aims,
critical issues and future development plans in order to identify and
implement integrated solutions of real value.
IPL group gets the best road products and street furniture working for you.
CYCLE LANE SEGREGATION
Active Travel & Public Realm Solutions
CYCLE & PEDESTRIAN LANE ESSENTIALS
Flexible Bollards and Lane Segregation
Quick-Flex reboundable bollards are suitable for temporary or permanent
installation and widely used for delineating pedestrian areas, mixed-use commute
corridors and cycle lanes. X-last flexible bollards are intended for permanent
installation and offer increased safety, strength and resistance. Their strong rigid
design bends under applied force or impact and returns 100% to their original
shape. For protected cycle lanes, IPL group can provide moulded recycled plastic
separators that can be joined together to create a continuous segregated lane to
protect cyclists and prevent other vehicles entering the cycle lane.
RETENTION SYSTEM SOCKETS
Foundations for Public Realm Street Furniture
Installing street furniture in IPL group’s RETENTION SYSTEM sockets recognises
the seasonal demands, maintenance needs and lifecycle of street furniture in the
public realm. Active travel items such as pedestrian guard railings and bollards
used in traffic and pedestrian areas are subject to vehicle impact and require
regular maintenance. If damaged, these items can be safely and easily replaced
without any further excavation and at a fraction of traditional costs once installed
in IPL group’s high-quality RS sockets. Event management and pedestrian areas can
also be managed effectively, and seasonal street furniture moved and stored away
when not required.
IPL group’s passive safe Hydro aluminium poles include a range of signposts,
CCTV and lighting columns, cantilever and traffic signal poles that are designed
for all sizes and types of dedicated cycle lanes and mixed-use junctions. Raise
and lower lighting columns and CCTV poles allow maintenance from ground
level and are ideal for cycle tracks with restricted access. All poles in the range
can be installed in IPL group’s RS socket foundations for routine maintenance or
replacement, essential for asset management in high-traffic junctions prone to
damage from vehicle impact.
The Modupost is an illuminated, high performance, vandal-resistant
pedestrian crossing solution. It comprises a robust corrosion-resistant base
section, an LED illuminated stem and a post top Midustar LED Belisha
beacon. This combination of illuminated post and beacon achieves
substantially improved visibility of the pedestrian crossing for approaching
drivers both day and night and ensures a greater level of safety for those
crossing the road. The installation of Moduposts in high-strength
RETENTION SYSTEM socket foundations makes for easy post
replacement if damaged, to give additional maintenance safety and
sustainability to new raised pedestrian crossing designs.
PEDESTRIAN SAFETY & ACCESS CONTROL
IPL group supplies a range of railing types, including galvanised pedestrian
guardrail for widened path designs, traffic islands, pedestrian crossings and other
urban areas. Within our Rivers range we offer embellished railing designs with
powder-coat painting suitable for streetscapes demanding a high standard of
finish. All railing can be installed in RS sockets for easy maintenance and removal
as necessary without further excavation. IPL group’s bollard range also provides
effective solutions for pedestrian zones, access and parking control with options
that include stylish automated retractable bollards and an extensive choice of
fixed or removable bollard designs with features such as reflective strips,
chain-link and heavy-duty impact protection.
SAFE ROUTE TO SCHOOLS & GREEN SCHOOL SOLUTIONS
Pencil Bollards, School Warning Systems
IPL group’s colourful pencil bollards have all the strength, flexibility and high
quality associated with our range of X-last bollards. Ideal for school
set-down, spill-out and drop-off points, they clearly define and protect
children and pedestrian areas. In addition to their safety design and testing,
these polymer bollards are also a popular choice with drivers for protection
against the usual wear-and-tear of restricted school parking spaces and car
door opening. When installed in reusable RETENTION SYSTEM™ sockets,
this bollard gives all road users a new level in safety over traditional metal
bollards and is an attractive and sustainable design option.
INTEGRATED STREET FURNITURE
Cycle Stands & Bespoke Designs
IPL group understands that successful public realm infrastructure needs to evolve
with community demands and the seasonal changes in how public spaces are used.
We manufacture locally and can create bespoke items to suit and integrate into
existing streetscapes. Outdoor seating areas can be designed with a mix of
planters, bollards and screens, all of which can be removed and seasonally
installed in RS foundation sockets. Streets can be pedestrianised with removable
street furniture and IPL group has a range of modern and heritage style street
furniture designs. Cycle parking solutions include the trusted Sheffield ‘staple’ bike
stand, which can be supplied galvanised or in stainless steel and in individual units
or grouped together in a ‘toast-rack’ solution.
IPL group provides an environmentally sourced mix of natural and rustic
pedestrian path and cycleway solutions to complement the development of
Greenway routes. Our Irish-made Rivers range of classic style bollards, railings,
signage, plaques and hanging baskets features in towns and villages throughout
the country and at many heritage sites, parks and natural amenities. We also
supply attractive, durable and eco-friendly picnic benches and seating options,
including hardwood, pine wood, recycled plastic, aluminium and corten steel
designs. Other items suitable for Greenways and nature trails include rustic style
bins, bollards and information display plaques and signage.
