At Procter Street Furniture we offer a full range of standard and bespoke products including seating, bollards, cycle sheds and trolley enclosures, plus are able to deliver projects as part of much wider contracts which include our fencing and automatic gates divisions.
Although we frequently deliver projects which purely involve street furniture, our unique strength is that street furniture is one division of Procter Contracts which also includes divisions for Fencing Systems and Automatic Gates.
See the other procter Division on BPi:
- Procter Contracts - A wide range of Fencing Solutions
- Procter Cast Stone - A leading manufacturer of Cast Stone
Full range of standard and bespoke street furniture products:
Few street furniture projects would be complete without an element of benches or other seating, and indeed some of the projects we carry out very much have it as a focus. Tables are also often required with the seating, and perhaps in parks and other open spaces for picnicking.
Bollards have a largely functional purpose which will often include security, but in most cases there is still an opportunity to take into account aesthetics. This can be important on projects where a balance needs to be struck between practical security measures and creating a pleasing space for the public to use, and we’re able to take such considerations into account when proposing options for different types of bollards.
A well-known sight around the UK, the traditional litter bin is manufactured from medium density polyethylene. Highly durable, these bins are UV stable and ideal for high traffic public areas such as high streets and parks.
We supply and install a wide range of shelters, including those for people and cycle storage. Of course the main purpose of a shelter in a street furniture context is protection from the elements, though even with this functional purpose in mind it is still possible to create a structure which is aesthetically pleasing.
As with all types of street furniture, bin stores and plant screens can be designed and manufactured to be aesthetically pleasing. Often we will work to architects’ drawings, and in other cases we will be asked to come up with the design.
We supply a wide range of shapes and sizes for Tree Grilles. Suitable for all applications.
For our parking range of street furniture, we offer every possible type of product including parking posts, Armco barriers, retractable posts and one-way plates. With such an extensive range of parking and vehicle-related street furniture, we’re able to supply and install a complete package for any public or commercial site.
High visibility impact protection products are designed to a) visually standout, and b) provide protection for something. They are typically painted in black and yellow, with the frame constructed in galvanised mild steel. We can create bespoke designs if required to suit the individual aesthetic and functional requirements of the application.
All retail developments – and in particular out-of-town retail park and supermarkets – use a wide range of street furniture, including trolley parks and protection for lamp posts and columns etc. At Procter Street Furniture we offer a full range of standard products, plus can design, have manufactured and install bespoke products.
The Door Stop is designed to protect walls from being damaged by swinging doors, while the integrated rubber stopper protect the door’s surface from any damage. Ideal for commercial and industrial sites, they are suitable for internal and external use and can be installed either individually or in pairs.

What Is Acoustic Fencing And Does It Work?
Acoustic fencing, does it work?
First things first, what is acoustic fencing and what does it do? Acoustic fencing is a type of soundproof fencing method used by many industries to reduce unwanted environmental and external noise pollution. Our design engineers at Procter Contracts have developed an array of highly effective soundproofing fences that reduce the acoustic sound pressure of noise pollution going into a person’s ear.
In other words, acoustic fence panels reduce noise. Our acoustic fencing systems can be installed to use against the environmental sound waves that are generated by excessive and unwanted levels of noise vibration – these noise vibrations are typically caused by high volumes of vehicles, people and machinery. Noise pollution can be found in and around many urban UK cities- from excess residential garden noise, ear-splitting commercial & Industrial machinery noise, to extremely loud sports venue, railways, airports and motorway road noises.
Noise pollution is a potential and costly health hazard.
Busy roads and motorways have a large number of vehicles that move simultaneously, and can cause an enormous level of noise to surrounding industrial and residential areas. Unbearable noise pollution from whistles and engines of railway trains can be extremely harmful to human ears. As well as noise associated with building construction, mining, road building, industrial and manufacturing. Noise pollution such as these can be associated with and become a health hazard that can lead to hearing loss or at worse deafness.
How effective are our Pro-Acoustic fencing products?
Procter Contracts acoustic fences work by soundproofing and reducing environmental and external noise pollution that would otherwise affect residential streets, commercial & industrial buildings, sporting venues, railway and motorway facilities.
To explain to you how effective Procter Contracts acoustic fences are – when wearing hearing protectors in combination with earplugs and earmuffs, the combined hearing defence would provide a noise reduction rating of approximately 32-decibels – the same noise reduction level as our Pro-Acoustic fencing products.
Reduce the noise with Pro-Acoustic fencing!
By using our Pro-Acoustic fencing systems you would be able to reduce a typical 90-decibel (extremely loud busy road) noise pollution down to a moderate to faint 32-decibel noise level.
Over the years Procter Contracts have designed many acoustic fencing and barrier products that provide up-to 32 decibel attenuation and are designed to satisfy stringent standards – tested and complaint with BS EN 1794-1 and BS EN 1794-2 British Standards.
Using Procter Bros’ 275-year heritage Procter Contracts have engineered, designed and built a number of different types of acoustic sound barrier fencing for an array of prestigious clients. One of our recent acoustic fencing client projects involved BBC Studio –Procter Contracts where commissioned to design, build & install an exceptionally strong, custom built seven-metre tall – acoustic sound barrier screen. The acoustic barrier fence was built to keep out environmental noise (high winds) as well as external noise pollution (caused by the surrounding people, vehicles & machinery). For more details about our BBC acoustic project and other acoustic fence projects click – Acoustic barrier fence case study – BBC.
Procter Contracts offers a choice of either – timber acoustic fence designs or maintenance free composite (reinforced recycled fibre – plastic acoustic fencing). And material specifications can be provided in either reflective or absorption noise control.
