Landmark Manager transitions into Neenah Foundry role

TWSI's (Tactile Walking Surface Indicators) or DWP 's (Detectable Warning Plates "USA") are by no stretch of the imagination something new on the market, as they have been used around the world in various other countries for over 60 years. Here in Canada, these products have been included in certain installations for the past 10 years.

Stronger focus on growing Landmark division in place for 2016

With a New Year, comes a change in direction for Crozier Enterprises as we focus on expanding the Landmark by Crozier division and its growing product lines. 

Effective December 1, 2015, Crozier Enterprises closed its Play! by Crozier division and all its product lines, with the exception of RockCraft, the leading manufacturer of concrete climbing rocks for bouldering (manufactured in BC, Canada's rock climbing capital). See our unique, natural looking boulders that offer fun for children and fitness for all HERE! 

To provide a seamless transition with the change in representation of GameTime products in Ontario and Manitoba over to Park N Play Design Co. Ltd., Crozier Enterprises has tried to ensure that any and all open quotes and designed/committed projects through 2017 are honoured and completed as planned with no interruptions in service.

cast iron

Cast iron Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI's) durable for Canadian winters

Winter is coming. And there’s no avoiding it. It might still be sunny and fairly warm outside but as the last leaves fall, a chill will creep across the ground and soon there will be snow. 

Number one priority when winter hits- keeping the roads safe. This means winter tires and snowplows. As far as pedestrians with vision loss, they rely on the durability of Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI's) to withstand harsh weather conditions and safely alert them of upcoming street crossings. 

While plastic plates have been shown to crack over time from the impact of snowplows (see example below of a plastic plate with obvious signs of wear), Neenah Foundry’s TWSI’s are made from cast iron materials that don’t wear, peel or crack.

Neenah Foundry's traditional bollards make a comeback

As communities strive to improve the look of their downtown core through new developments and revitalization projects, many are cycling back to traditional designs for inspiration. 

Traditional bollards have made a huge resurgence across North America in recent years, with bollards reminiscent of the 1800’s being requested in landscape projects. In addition to wanting a cast iron bollard that’s durable and long-lasting, many people are requesting bollards that include traditional-style, with round finial embellishments.

Neenah Foundry’s New Family of Bollards Brochure highlights this “old is new” look of bollards. As seen in the brochure, Neenah offers 71 bollard configurations to choose from, including the popular interchangeable finials.
