Banksia Reserve Sports and Community Facility, Melbourne, VIC

The new Banksia Reserve Sports and Community Facility is a multi-purpose facility for Bayside City Council in Melbourne which caters for football, cricket, tennis clubs as well as community arts groups.

Project Design Brief

Player, first aid and umpire change rooms; a kiosk, an upper-level kitchen, meeting rooms and social spaces were part of the project’s scope. Designers wanted a floor and drainage grate that would provide slip resistance for people working in the kitchen area. The drainage channel also had to prevent food solids from blocking the pipes.

ACO's Solution

  • Custom channel with Stainless 5 Star Heelsafe® Anti-Slip grates


  • The stainless steel channel had a 1:100 built-in fall enabling efficient drainage to outlets.
  • The Heelsafe® Anti-Slip grate with R11 slip resistance (AS 4586) ensures worker safety even after wash-down operations. The narrow slots also stops food solids from entering the drainage system.
  • All channels were fitted with a vinyl seal profile which provides a superior seal between stainless steel channels and vinyl flooring.
