1800 REPLAS 

1800 737 527


We asked Fraser Coast Regional Council in Queensland why they turned to recycled plastic bollards after the Mary River area flooded in 2013 and this is what they had to say:

'Prior to the 2013 floods an array of different bollards were used within Petrie Park, comprising of timber, composite & recycled plastic. While the timber & composite bollards were either rotting or splitting apart after the waters receded the plastic was unaffected. All damaged bollards have now been replaced with recycled plastic. We now have a much more uniform look while effectively reducing maintenance.’  Bruce Brischke, Open Space & Environment Officer, Fraser Coast Regional Council.

Nigel Melzner, Manager Community Infrastructure at the City of Port Lincoln was so pleased with his new Replas bollards that he sent us some fantastic photos. 24 of our brown 145 mm bollards were installed along the Port Lincoln Heritage Trail. Stainless steel caps pop riveted to the bollards add an elegant touch and are etched with the Heritage Trail emblem creating a quality finish.



Seats, manufactured by Replas New Zealand distributor, Metal Art, were installed at Milton School in Otago by Cook Brothers Construction over a year ago. The seats which incorporate brown recycled-plastic slats still look as good as the day they were installed. Ian, the caretaker at the school, said, ‘The seats are a perfect match for the outdoor cloakroom area and we are delighted that the slats can be so easily cleaned’.

Parks Victoria recently completed a 170 m long berthing area/boardwalk at Patterson River, Carrum, in Victoria. Recycled-plastic fenders, capping and decking were chosen with brown Enduroplankâ„¢ used for the decking. This thriving canal system is extremely popular for fishing with the car park filling up by 4.30 am. The new addition to this major boat launching facility will handle the traffic with ease and provide a long-lasting result.


The new Science Learning Centre at Xavier College, SA, was designed using sustainable building principles and incorporating energy efficient materials.
The addition of three recycled-plastic Premier settings to the external veranda has created a beautiful outdoor learning area. David Costin, Property Services Manager, says, ‘This area overlooks our horticulture area and provides a pleasant environment for our students’. David says the look and style of the new settings not only complement the new building, but will also educate students about the use of recycled products.

Brisbane City Council has been one of the first to take advantage of our new range of brown products. The council wanted to create an outdoor lunch and meeting area, but any solution needed to be mindful of the heritage listed tree root system.

Replas was able to provide a floating, two level deck, which has no piers going into the ground. Brown was chosen as the colour for the Enduroplankâ„¢, and black was used for the edging, creating a clean, stylish look. Because of the unusual shape of the platforms, furniture was custom built to accommodate the angles and lengths.

Council staff now has an outdoor area that is not only neat and comfortable, but helps protect the integrity of the trees.


 If you’re looking for a bench with a little extra style our new Oval Bench may be just the thing. Designed to lend a relaxed yet modern feel to your outdoor area the Oval is perfect in any setting.

The Oval is available in a variety of lengths up to 3.6 metres and is wide enough for people to sit on both sides making it the ideal choice for your outdoor area.



There’s nothing we like more than heading down to our favourite beach to soak up some summer sun.

Clovelly Beach, NSW, is a small and tranquil beach, popular with family groups and the elderly. When its old timber disabled ramp was in need of repair, Randwick City Council chose to use recycled-plastic materials to refurbish the deck, kick rails and posts.

The council said they wanted a ramp that could, ‘withstand long term damage caused by sea water, and offer a safer surface for beachgoers’.

The use of our new brown Enduroplankâ„¢ has produced a stunning result and will be enjoyed by the community for many summers to come.
