Marshalls plc, the UK’s leading manufacturer of superior, innovative hard landscaping products, has responded to the requirement of designers for affordable inspirational paving by launching the Marshalls Metropolitan Collection.
The new Marshalls Metropolitan range uses the latest face-mix technology to produce blocks in six subtle traditional colours, combined with five integrating plan sizes. This unique blend now provides the designer with the opportunity of bringing together a wide range of plan sizes, from small element block paving, right through to larger flags, to transform Britain’s landscapes even on the most restricted budget.
To support the Metropolitan paving launch, Marshalls has created a bespoke web site called the Metropolitan Visualiser. Here the designer can start to explore the new range in detail plus begin to create their own unique designs. This can be found by visiting:
On the site in three simple stages, designers can experiment with Metropolitans colours and plan sizes to create customised bond pattern designs which can be viewed and manipulated in 3D. A bespoke PDF can then be generated, which includes a visual of their created design, as well as the specific colours and blocks sizes chosen.
Gareth Jones, Marshalls Commercial Marketing Manager, said:
“The core purpose behind the new Marshalls Metropolitan range is to give the designer increased hard landscaping solutions through integrating the broad ranging elements of the collection all within a reasonable budget.”
“Research conducted by us (Marshalls) has indicated that due to some projects being heavily constrained at the latter stages of the construction, the opportunity to create inspirational landscapes was limited. Metropolitan is now the cost effective solution for them to achieve this, supported by the outstanding quality and service Marshalls offer the customer.”’
”To illustrate the dynamics of the range the Metropolitan Visualiser was developed to demonstrate the versatility of the product by providing the user the opportunity to create their own 3D designs in a few simple steps. Here base patterns can be manipulated with colour and size giving designer the opportunity to create new landscaping themes time and time again. It can then be saved as a bespoke PDF document for their future reference.”
Injecting innovation into new product development and investing in revolutionary manufacturing techniques cements Marshalls’ market leading position. Its vision of, to deliver the products customers require, on time, every time, is supported by Marshalls teams of design, technical and customer service experts, ensuring the company can service clients’ needs from project and design conception right the way through to installation and maintenance.
