Kauri Dieback Standard Station

Kauri Dieback Standard Station

Excluding GST

Our stations have been designed with two things in mind - the trees and the people. Our priority is to use design to combat the spread of dieback disease by people . We have created a station that allows people to clean their shoes efficiently and effectively by providing sheltered stations at the entrance of NZ forest tracks. 


Hikers are able to remove any dirt on their boots on the brushes mounted to the floor grating, before stepping onto the foot treadle, which triggers it to spray a fine mist of diluted Sterigene (a chemical which disinfects and kills bacterial organisms) onto the soles of their shoes. If their boots are caked in mud, hikers can sit on the provided seats and use a hand brush and drench gun to remove any excess dirt before disinfecting with Sterigene.  

DOC’s public usage study shows a massive 98% compliance by visitors both on the way in and out of the Tane Mahuta trail since installing the station as opposed to a previous 30%.
