Safe beach access for all

Enduroplank™ beach access was installed at Otaki back in 2011. Since then, Kapiti Coast District Council has been keeping an eye on how the product is fairing. Three years on the structure is still impeccable, despite the weather it's been subject to. When the council decided to improve public beach access down the coast at Waikanae, reliable Replas was the first choice.

Visitors of the west coast beaches no longer have to trek through the dunes to get there. At two spots on the foreshore, the Enduroplank™ allows easy access to the car parks. The original structure continues to look brand new, proving the longevity of recycled-plastic. The Kapiti Coast has saved 540 kilograms of plastic waste from landfill. These unique sustainable access points will be around for the long-term.

  

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.

 

Playground pair

Eight years ago the Shire of Northampton, in Western Australia, installed a Premier Setting and Kakadu Seat. at the playground on the beach at Horrocks. Today, they still add a splash of colour to this coastal location and look as good as the day they were installed.

Island living

Cocos Islands is a territory of Australia, located in the Indian Ocean, southwest of Christmas Island. In the early months of the year cyclones can occur. In these harsh conditions the timber on a local jetty wasn’t lasting. Replacing the timber with recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ has produced a stunning result that will withstand the exposed environment without any problems.

Ramp it up

A new ramp at Sandon Point Surf Life Saving Club, in Wollongong NSW, was constructed using recycled-plastic capping, Enduroplank™ decking and a composite fibre sub-structure. The ramp meets the Australian Standards for up to a two-tonne load rating and will be used for light vehicle traffic and small yacht trailers to access the beach along with other beach goers.
