I’ll have mine battered

On the Redcliffe Peninsula, in Queensland, the local council has found a unique application for Replas recycled plastic wheel stops, using them as a barrier at the edge of a local boat ramp. They take a battering from the harsh coastal conditions and wayward boat trailers day in and day out, but this high performing product still looks in pristine condition.

Randwick gets beach ready with Replas

South Maroubra beach, in NSW, is a popular surfing spot. Randwick Council recently installed 145 mm bollards from Replas along the beach access near the Surf Club to help protect the vegetation surrounding the pathways. Recycled plastic is perfect in this coastal area as it is resistant to salt water and requires minimal maintenance. According to one of the council’s installers they have installed hundreds of these bollards and find them to be a great product.

  

  

Surfing the environmental wave

National surfing Reserves are ‘iconic’ places of intrinsic environmental, heritage, sporting and cultural value to a nation. NSR is an organisation that recognises and dedicates surfing sites throughout Australia. The natural and rugged section of coast between Red Bluff and the Murchison River mouth in Western Australia is an area that is surfed and enjoyed by all. The aim of this reserve is to keep this unique area in its present form for all future generations.

The site of this dedication is marked by two recycled-plastic surfboard shaped seats from Replas. These sustainable Beachcomber seats are a perfect complement to this site as they are environmentally-friendly and will last beautifully in this harsh coastal location.

        

High on the hill

Lighthouse Beach is seven kilometres south of Port Macquarie, NSW, and is a favourite with surfers and holiday makers. A simple sign made from recycled plastic bollards and profile looks perfect in this coastal setting. Looks don't tell the whole story though, because this sign is also a high achiever when it comes to performance. Waste plastic collected throughout the community has been used to create this beach themed sign that will not rot, crack, split or need painting and will proudly announce the beach entrance to visitors for many years to come.

A big bench for a big view

Shoalhaven Shire Council, in NSW, has purchased numerous recycled-plastic signs to direct people along various walking tracks and paths. But when it came to the stunning view at Bannisters Head in Mollymook they knew it all had to come to a stop. A stunning view like this called for a pretty spectacular seat to stop and enjoy the scenery.

A Big Bench from Replas fit the bill beautifully. This virtually maintenance-free structure offers a viewing platform, a place to throw out a picnic, or simply an opportunity to stop and appreciate a product that has saved waste plastic from going to landfill.

Maritime for Ulladulla

Replas Maritime Bollards offer a beautiful complement to the coastal theme at the entrance to the lighthouse on Warden Head in Ulladulla, NSW. They are perfect in this environment as they are resistant to moisture and microorganisms, and will never rot, crack, or need painting.

Sutherland Shire ramps up commitment to the environment

Conscious of environmental issues, Sutherland Shire Council, in NSW, not only has a desalination plant, but they also recycle their plastic. Less than 3 kms from the plant, at Bonna Point, Kurnell, this boat ramp is made from Enduroplank™ recycled-plastic decking which is not only environmentally friendly, but also perfect in a marine environment as it is resistant to moisture and microorganisms.

 

Get ready to rumble

Replas Rumble Bars are popping up all over South Australia. On this steep incline they slow drivers down and protect the busy walking lane recently installed.

I'm still standing

When lightweight bollards were installed at Southend in South Australia they continually suffered damage from vandals. After searching for a better solution, Wattle Rangers Council chose to install several 145 mm bollards from Replas. Installed for more than a year, they not only still look good, but have also proved too tough for vandals to damage.

Miles better

In 2011, Great Lakes Council in NSW, created beach access at the south end of One Mile Beach, Forster, using a combination of Replas’ Enduromesh, composite fibre and hardwood timber. A beach shower was also added. While this proved extremely popular, increased use created a mud patch around the shower. No problem. The council simply extended the Enduromesh. Now the grass is growing back and visitors have clean feet!

According to the council, residents are now asking when they will see more access ways of this type on other beaches.
