This expression has become the Replas motto, when we recommend products from our range to replace rotten and damaged timber signage, outdoor furniture, traffic control products and decking.
Pictured here is the recently refurbished boardwalk at the beautiful Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve in the Northern Territory. The existing wooden structure had become unsafe due to its exposure to damp conditions during the wet season, and required urgent replacing. Rather than replace the timber decking with more timber, the NT Parks and Wildlife Service sensibly decided to invest in a recycled‐plastic boardwalk.
Recycled‐plastic will last for more than 40 years without maintenance and won’t split or rot, making it the perfect choice for these extreme conditions.
At 1.2 kilometres long, the boardwalk is Australia’s longest recycled‐plastic structure, winding its way through a variety of habitats, including monsoon and paperbark forests.
