Enduroplank™ takes visitors straight to the action

Tomato Lake Park in Kewdale, Western Australia, features a 7.4 hectare lake supporting a wide variety of birdlife. The new installation of a 104-metre Enduroplank™ boardwalk allows visitors to observe the birds at close proximity, whilst the installation of Replas Podium signs displays details about birdlife found in the park.

The City of Belmont has also used these Plank signs in a number of other parks and playgrounds in the community, demonstrating their commitment to environmental sustainability. Well done!

Composite fibre the icing on the cake

Composite fibre is the latest innovation that councils just can’t get enough of. Composite fibre structures allow pedestrian bridges and boardwalks to be used in conjunction with Enduroplank™ recycled plastic decks.

These structures can now be constructed without using any timber products, resulting in maintenance-free boardwalks that will last over 40 years! These structures take half the time to assemble, due to the pre-fabricated and uniform trusses, joists and planks, creating a sustainable and affordable solution for councils.

Dee Why goes Kakadu

Ranger Chris Buckley from Warringah Council in New South Wales has been using Replas products for years. Recently, nine free-standing Kakadu 1.8m seats have been installed throughout the Stony Range Botanic Garden in Dee Why, blending beautifully into the native surrounds. These seats will require little to no maintenance, outlasting timber alternatives by many years.

Warringah Council has also installed a large Plank sign at Manly Dam, in Manly Vale. This sign is constructed from recycled-plastic posts, with two-tone sheeting board between. Painting can be kept to a minimum, as the text is etched onto the outer surface, allowing the middle colour (in this case, beige) to show through.

Text can be painted onto the outer surface (as seen here in blue), to create extra emphasis or highlight certain parts of your message.

City of Casey finds the solution

Victoria's City of Casey had a problem with a badly eroded walking track alongside a local park and soccer field. Four deep depressions had formed along the path, and each winter they filled with mud and water, making the track unusable.

To fix the problem, the council decided to build a bridge over each depression, using composite fibre structures and Enduroplanks™. Installation and material costs came in under budget, and the council can now enjoy a maintenance-free solution to their problem.

Blue lagoon

 

New South Wales' Narrabeen Lagoon is the largest of four coastal lagoons within the Warringah Council area, and has a surface area of two square kilometres. The lagoon supports an important aquatic ecosystem and is used extensively by the community and visitors for a wide range of recreational activities, including boating, fishing and swimming.

Given these conditions, the council chose to install recycled plastic signs to display lagoon information. Whereas a wooden or metal sign would quickly deteriorate, the recycled-plastic sign is unaffected by the harsh coastal conditions, and the blue colour of the sign highlights the coastal nature of the area.

 

Replas thrives in harsh conditions

 

After floods devastated the Gippsland region in June 2007, the Victorian State Government injected funds into the area to help repair some of the destruction.

One area badly affected was the coastal town of Loch Sport. The foreshore area was underwater for some time, resulting in extensive damage to the parkland and wooden walking track along the lake’s edge. When considering how to repair the track, Wellington Shire Council looked at various options, requiring a product able to withstand the harsh coastal conditions.

As shire residents are strong supporters of recycling and sustainability, the council decided that Enduroplank™ decking was the perfect solution, as it is maintenance-free and will outlast any alternative in such extreme conditions.

 

Multiple uses for retaining panels

Wonga Beach Caravan Park is located on a beautiful coastal area north of Mossman, in Far North Queensland. Cairns Regional Council wanted to make the caravan park more sustainable and eco-friendly, so they decided to use our recycled-plastic retaining panels as garden edging.

As these gardens beds will be constantly moist the plastic retaining panel was a much better alternative to a wooden retaining wall, that would no doubt rot away.

Blue bollards make a splash

 

Townsville Council, Queensland, recently decided to install a row of blue bollards in Blue Water Park. This vibrant colour is now available across much of our recycled plastic range, injecting a splash of colour to the location.

In addition to the benefits of recycled plastic, grass maintenance has become a simpler task as the cord cuts of a whipper-snipper do not cause splintering and rotting, as they did with the timber posts!

 

Coastal environments perfect for recycled plastic

Port Stephens Council, New South Wales, has recently installed a beach access staircase in Shoal Bay. Using timber or steel in a harsh coastal environment results in a relatively short life span for the product, making recycled plastic the ideal option.

The new staircase will not rot or splint, as the plastic does not absorb water, and there is no need for painting maintenance as the colour does not fade.

A walk down history lane

Tasmania's historic Richmond Village prides itself on maintaining a heritage look and feel. With the township’s oldest buildings dating back to the 1820s, Clarence City Council is particularly careful to ensure that any new installations enhance the traditional street-scape.

When new bollards were required recently, the council challenged Replas to create a uniquely appropriate design.
