A succesful grant application and new outdoor shelter for Port Kembla FC
Find out how Felton helped Port Kembla FC secure grants funding to purchase a new sheltered grandstand to protect spectators from the harsh Australian sun
Approximately eight kilometres south of the City of Wollongong, lies the seaside suburb of Port Kembla. Located at the heart of Australia’s “Steel City” region, Port Kembla is known for its major steelworks.
Despite its economic importance to the region, sometimes steel alone just isn’t the right product for the job. So, when Anthony Timillero, president of the Port Kembla Pumas Football Club, needed spectator seating for his team’s home games, he contacted the team at Felton Industries regarding our range of premium, aluminium outdoor furniture.
In this case, choosing the right outdoor furniture manufacturer was only part of the job. To fund their desperately needed seating, The Port Kembla Pumas needed help. Fortunately, the Felton team have a great understanding of the grants process available to sporting clubs and was able to work through the process with Pumas management to secure funding.
When it came time to choose the best seating for the job, Felton’s Sunsafe Select Grandstand proved to be the perfect choice. Constructed from premium, Australian aluminium, each Sunsafe Select Grandstand can seat up to 40 spectators in comfort. The structurally engineered roof is made from Colorbond steel to provide long-lasting shelter from scorching sun or drenching rain. And because the Sunsafe Select Grandstand is manufactured to benchmark-setting standards, with 20% more aluminium than competitive products, it’s immensely strong and durable while being virtually maintenance-free. Rated to withstand the extremes of a Category 3 cyclone, it’s as tough enough to handle Australia’s toughest conditions with ease.
While the club is extremely happy with their purchase of four Sunsafe Select Grandstands, the spectators are thrilled. With a capacity to seat up to 160, the fans from “Steel City” now have the perfect vantage point to support their team.
