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 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, Neenah Foundry’s TWSI’s are made from cast iron materials that don’t wear, peel or crack.

Q:What are Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI’s)?

A: Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI’s), are devices with defined sets of patterns that have been agreed upon by International Accessibility Experts, that either provide persons with visual impairments a) warning of a hazard or b) following a direction.

Q:Where did Tactile Walking Surface Indicators Originate?

A: Tactile Walking Surface Indicators were originally developed in Japan in the 1960’s when a member of the Royal Household was visually impaired, and every effort possible was initiated to assist this person’s mobility in the public realm. Since then Japan has spearheaded many initiates for assistive devices, and TWSI’s are still more common than anywhere else in the world.
