Freedom Strategies is a 10-year-old company, founded by Mark Fyfe, who saw an opportunity to help architects and contractors empower the 30,000 strong vision-impaired community in NZ.
The 'freedom' in Freedom Strategies refers to the accessibility products we provide to make like easier for the vision-impaired community to move safely through public places that the rest of us use every day and take for granted.
So the first products were the tactile indicators, and now our product range has expanded to include stair nosing, entrance matting and car-park products - all consistent with that theme of safety in and around public traffic areas.
You'll also notice a lot of yellow in our branding; yellow is one of the last colours that goes from a vision-impaired persons vision. Hence yellow being very important to the Freedom Strategies team.
Furthermore we are fully aware that when it comes to detailed design for the architect... what isn't keeping them up at night is stair nosings, entrance matting, tactile indicators and car-park products - so we've tried to create products that are easy to use, easy to understand and look great.
Our entire process is streamline with less room for error, and ease of flow throughout design, manufacture and installation.
And in keeping with the 'ease of use' narrative - our products are all on the Masterspec specification and are available on our website with the 2D and 3D Revit files, and are in Archicad, DXF, DWG.
