IOTA’s Manhattan fiberglass planters enhanced this residential complex in Taringa in QLD. The clean white colour added a nice contrast to the green foliage making the view more appealing to the complex’s residents.
The trough and cube planters helped to add form to the courtyard which also allowed for an assortment of colourful feature plantings. Previously the courtyard was plain. It had green grass, a few plants and steel bars but not much else. The addition of the cube and trough planters added both style and function.
In terms of functionality, the planters became a means of guiding people along the path from the parking lot to the building entrance. The planters also help keep people from walking on the grass. This helped keep the grass green and healthy.
The fiberglass planters are painted with a matte finish. It makes use of class A industrial UV-resistant polyurethane paint. This means that the colour will last longer when exposed to harsh sunlight and weathering. To keep the planters in their best condition, an annual coating of wax is recommended.
