ENCAT is an Australian manufacturer of aluminium bus shelters that are suitable for roadside use. Our aluminium bus shelter product is made in our factory located in Wollongong and has been designed to withstand Australia’s harsh outdoor conditions.
The bus shelter we manufacture and sell can reduce local maintenance requirements with its simple, but tough, design and construction.
- Modular design that can seat up to five people in a single unit or be built with multiple units for greater seating capacity where required.
- Shelter from the rain, wind or sun for commuters.
- Clear visibility to the side and rear to maximise security & help bus drivers see waiting passengers.
- Can include an outdoor advertising panel if required.
- Can be made in a variety of colours.
- Specially designed roof shape to aid rainwater being dispersed quickly without needing extra guttering.
For architects, designers or civil contractors we can custom design our aluminium bus shelter to suit individual requirements and locations. We make a range of different bus or passenger shelters that are designed to accommodate multiple people to keep them dry and safe.
We can help custom design a bus shelter to accomodate things like lighting, guttering, drainage, seating or advertising. As a local Australian manufacturer we can adapted our designs to meet any of your exact requirements.
As we well know, bus shelters play a crucial role in improving safety and making life easier for commuters in Australia. First and foremost, bus shelters provide protection from the elements, such as sun, rain, and wind. This can greatly improve the comfort and well-being of commuters waiting for their bus, especially during extreme weather conditions. Additionally, having a shelter can help prevent accidents and injuries caused by slip and falls on wet or slippery surfaces.
Bus shelters serve as a gathering place for commuters, providing a sense of community and social interaction. This can improve the overall experience of public transport, making it a more attractive option for commuters.
Installing bus shelters instead of just having a bus stop sign can improve road safety for pedestrians in several ways:
Protection from weather: Bus shelters provide a covered area where pedestrians can wait for the bus, which can protect them from harsh weather conditions such as rain, wind, or extreme heat. This can make waiting for the bus a more comfortable and safer experience.
Increased visibility: Bus shelters can be brightly coloured and prominently located, making them easier to spot from a distance. This can help drivers see where the bus stop is and be more aware of pedestrians in the area.
Reduced distraction: When pedestrians are waiting for a bus, they may be more likely to be distracted by their phones or other distractions. By providing a sheltered area with seating, pedestrians are more likely to stay in one place and be less distracted, reducing their risk of being involved in an accident.
Improved lighting: Bus shelters often have lighting that can improve visibility at night and reduce the risk of accidents.
Another important thing that bus shelters can deliver is the provision of information. Bus shelters often display information about the expected arrival of buses, as well as route and destination information. This helps commuters plan their trips more efficiently and reduces wait times.
ENCAT has been supplying bus shelters to local councils for many years. Our products are designed and manufactured to meet Australian standards and safety requirements.
