Leda specialize in the provision of perimeter security hardware for the construction industry. Its range of gates, bollards and bicycle parking are used on nearly all commercial building sites. During 2008, Leda supplied 30 gates and 2000 metres of fencing to the Redfern Park redevelopment in Sydney.
Leda’s range of new Bifold gates are of particular interest as an alternative to traditional roller shutters for apartment buildings and commercial office developments. Roller shutters can be slow and noisy. The bifold gate can operate in 3 seconds with virtually no noise so specifiers and the property management industry are taking note. It is the only Australian manufactured bifold gate to date. Leda is installing a robotic welder and cutter in October 2008. This will lead to significant cost savings on a range of metal prduct such as gates and fences.
Leda urges construction company’s to look at simplifying contract management and winding up a range of suppliers into one to generate efficiencies in managing projects as well as volume costs savings.
