The Raffles Hotel in Western Australia is an iconic building in Applecross, south of Perth. The recent installation of Replas’ Knox bollards have transformed the building, defining the edges of the property.
Reflectors have been recessed into the bollards to enhance visibility, and the recycled-plastic is a sustainable, practical application that creates an attractive finish to the garden area.
The Parks and Wildlife Service in the Northern Territory develops and manages more than 90 parks and reserves, specifically for conservation and nature-based recreation and tourism.
Recently, the Parks and Wildlife Service selected Replas’ round-topped recycled-plastic bollards as their preferred bollard for the region. As termites are a huge problem in the Northern Territory, traditional wooden bollards are only a short-term solution.
Replas is proud to supply the area with a low-maintenance, termite-free solution.
At Rossmoyne Primary School they take their commitment to the environment seriously. When the school needed new seating, bollards and signage they realised the only responsible choice was to use recycled plastic products.
Geoff Anderson, principal at Rossmoyne said, ‘We chose Replas as a consequence of our strong environmental /recycling focus and decision to search for recycled products for school use whenever possible’.
He says, ‘all three components have been well received,’ and he is particularly happy with the seating, adding, ‘it has a much warmer feel than the previously used aluminium products’.
Geoff says the school will continue its search for recycled products and is committed to using them in the future.
Add a stylish touch to your bollards with the addition of our new custom designed stainless steel caps. We use marinegrade stainless steel, with a number four finish, which is highly durable and resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The caps are glued to the bollard with a special adhesive which will not come apart even in extreme temperatures. Treat your outdoor area to a touch of steel today!
Last year, the Essendon Football Club went green with the installation of our recycled plastic ‘Bomber Bollards’. In 2010, it is the Adelaide Crows who are leading the way, with the purchase of our 25mm Knox bollards.
Crows players Richard Douglas and David Mackay were amazed to learn that the equivalent of nearly 30,000 Farmers Union milk bottles had been used to produce the bollard installed outside their home base.
‘They look so good, no one would ever know they were made from recycled materials,’ David commented.

‘I was looking for a product that was low maintenance, long-lasting and would withstand the harsh conditions of the tropics. Replas was able to arrange for delivery from one side of Australia to the other. Installation only required spacing and attaching end capping to the planks, a job I was able to undertake myself. What great service.’ Ian Hunter, home handyman, Northern Territory.
