Most public space managers and designers understand the dangers inherent in providing standard domestic barbecues for public use. Exposed flames and sharp edges pose a serious safety risk.
The DA Christie Parksafe barbecue offers an array of safety features. There is a protection zone around the hotplate and a perforated mesh barrier under the hotplate to keep the benchtop cool. A six-second ignition delay stops children turning the barbecue on. The design employs rounded corners with polycarbonate inserts and a one-piece, easy-to-clean, seamless, stainless steel hotplate to stop bacteria and contaminants lodging on the cooking surface.
