A new and exciting beach access is currently being installed at North Narrabeen on the northern beaches of Sydney. The new point will ensure easy access for residents and visitors from the Surf Club to the beach.

Enduroplankā„¢ is a perfect decking for the area, due to its ability to withstand the harsh salt water. It's an ethical alternative to timber, which is promised to remain maintenance-free and long-lasting. Not only will the material not corrode, even when submerged in salt water, it also refuses to split, rot, crack or need painting.

Each 3 metre length of Enduroplankā„¢ is equivalent to 4350 plastic bags. Once the project is completed a total of 609,000 plastic bags will have been saved from landfill. What an excellent recycling achievement! You simply can't go wrong with a stunning, easily installed Enduroplankā„¢ beach access.

The City of Victor Harbor was after a robust, long-lasting staircase with little maintenance.

Replas happily obliged with the installation of a staircase using Enduroplankā„¢ and composite fibre.

The Enduroplankā„¢ is a strong, timber-free option which allows easy access to the beautiful beach and to the harbour, only increasing the attraction that is the favoured holiday destination just one hour from Adelaide.

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.

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 councilā€™s installers they have installed hundreds of these bollards and find them to be a great product.

National surfing Reserves are ā€˜iconicā€™ 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.

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.

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.

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 Enduroplankā„¢ recycled-plastic decking which is not only environmentally friendly, but also perfect in a marine environment as it is resistant to moisture and microorganisms.
