Christie manufactures the original, iconic Australian public barbecue for shared use. We design and engineer our energy-efficient gas and electric commercial grills explicitly for use by the community in outdoor urban and park environments, since 1965.
Commercial barbecues for communal spaces
Our award-winning gas and electric barbecue cooktops are self-contained commercial cooking appliances. You can order them with our pre-fabricated cabinets, or install them in into your custom specific outdoor kitchen project.
We explicitly design our barbecues for repeated and continuous use in outdoor public spaces. The heavy-duty stainless-steel grill plate offers a versatile cooking surface that meets diverse cultural and dietary needs.
Because public barbecues are used by large groups, our cooktops use the least possible power to cook large quantities of food quickly and evenly. They strike the optimum balance between energy efficiency and cooking performance.
Our barbecue cabinets save you time and money. They are a cost-effective alternative to building an outdoor kitchen. Delivered flat-packed for easy site access and low freight costs, they are easy to assemble and sturdy enough to last for many years.
Christie cabinets are famously durable, proven to withstand marine, alpine, desert, and tropical locations. They also meet all relevant standards for public safety and universal access.
Our cabinet materials are sustainable, durable, and easy to clean. Our wheelchair accessible stainless steel A Series is 90% recycled. Together with our ICON cabinet, they set the benchmark for eco-friendly, inclusive design.
Fixed public barbecue benefits
Our commercial grills provide a safe and hygienic alternative to open flame barbecues in shared public spaces.
They offer an environmentally sustainable solution that eliminates the environmental hazards of fire, smoke, pollution and waste from disposable grills. Engineered for safety, they also reduce the risk of personal injury from flames and coals.
Convenient to use
Fixed barbecue facilities eliminate the need to transport domestic barbecues or buy disposable grills and fuel. Explicitly designed for shared public use, operating our grills is very simple.
A simple push-button starts the cooking cycle, and the grill switches off automatically after a preset time. Press the button, cook and leave.
Easy to maintain
We engineer our barbecues for high use in harsh outdoor environments. They are durable, cost-effective, and simple to clean and service.
With fixed communal barbecues, you can easily monitor and manage cooking, cleaning, and maintenance requirements. Save money while providing safe, clean and functioning cooking facilities.
Outdoor living has many physical and mental health benefits, particularly in high-density urban environments.
Community barbecues encourage people to participate in healthy outdoor living. They bring people of all abilities, ages, socio-economic, and ethnic backgrounds together and create a sense of connection and wellbeing.
