The best thing about getting to March is the realisation that the worst of Winter chills are behind us and brighter, warmer days are ahead. That means people out enjoying the better weather together. Taking a stroll through the town or the parks and taking a pause here and there to just enjoy being out. It’s time to get those public spaces ready and talk to Killeshal about Durable Street Furniture.
We have surely reached the point where we realise that we all need to take steps to add more green or eco-friendly thinking into our daily lives. Increasing numbers of commuters and those looking for a healthier lifestyle are taking to cycling to do just that. That increases the demand for bicycle parking and fortunately Killeshal have a comprehensive Bicycle Stands Range ready to fit any budget or location type.
We have been trying to let everyone know that Killeshal provides so much more than just precast concrete components, but we are so well known for our concrete products that it’s easy to miss our other lines, like Stainless Steel Bollards… and these classy, durable bollards should not be missed! Also available as Lockable/Removable.

Line Drainage Systems and that old Eurythmics song, Here Comes The Rain Again, often come to mind at this time of year. I so often seem to have that song going around my head because even though we’ve just had another wet and wild winter, you just know the rain will keep falling into April and beyond. And of course, channel drainage systems from Killeshal come to mind because something will need to handle the resultant surface water, particularly where high capacity or heavy load-bearing drainage channels are required.
