Bankwest Stadium

Bankwest Stadium

The new Western Sydney Stadium, known as Bankwest Stadium, in Parramatta delivers the ultimate in a live sports experience with the design of its seating bowl taking intensity and atmosphere to a new level. The 30,000 seat rectangular stadium is part of the New South Wales Government’s strategy to recognise the expansion and growing importance of Sydney’s West.

The Problem

Western Stadium needed an effective, flexible and reliable queue management system for their new food court area.

The Solution

Barrier Group recommended and installed Neata Belt Post In-floor Flexi for this job. Unique in-floor sleeves mean these posts can be deployed, removed or repositioned at any time by staff while remaining tamper-resistant for improved public safety. When the posts are removed, the flush stainless steel in-ground sleeves leave a smooth surface without trip hazards.

Neata Belt Post In-floor Flexi offers a world-first impact-absorbing design that allows the post to tilt on impact by up to 10 degrees in any direction and return to its original position without damage. As Neata Belt Post In-floor Flexi is mounted In-floor there is no base required so the design increases available floor space by up to 30%, improving disabled access and reducing tripping hazards.

Western Stadium also ordered a Neata Storage Trolley to store posts when not in use.

While Western Stadium opted for classic black belts for their food court, don't forget that we can custom print belts in any colour, with your logo and business name to suit many of our retractable belt products. Just contact our friendly sales staff for details.

The Challenges

Neata Belt Post In-floor Flexi comes typically with a two-metre belt as standard, but Western Stadium requested three-metre belts for this up-sized job. The food court is also open-air, so premium 316 stainless steel was required. All three hundred of the posts needed for this job were custom made to the customer's requirements.

Client Response

The customer was delighted with the quality and flexibility of the Neata Belt Post In-floor Flexi and impressed with Barrier Group’s ability to customise the product to their needs.
