Parkes Shire Council just can't get enough!

Forbes, located in the Lachlan Valley South West of NSW, just can't get enough of Replas!

They have recycled-plastic picnic settings, bins, track markers, several bench seats and even an Enduroplank™ on the walk way over to the stunning lake.

Many thousands of plastic bags have been saved from landfill as a result, go Forbes!

All of these products are low-maintenance and designed to last as they're resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture.

Enduroplank™ decking in particular is a long lasting construction containing no timber or metal (other than fixings and brackets) and is robust and durable.

An enormous environmental impact has been made by Parkes Shire Council and Replas' recycled-plastic initiative.

  

Enduroplank™ bridges the walkway gap

After decades of being synonymous with Auckland's wastewater treatment Puketutu Island in Auckland, New Zealand, is now a place people want to visit.

As part of the redevelopment of the area, Watercare Services Ltd chose recycled-plastic to create bench seating and used Enduroplank™ decking to bridge a spillway for the convenience of cyclists and walkers along the Manukau Coastal walkway.

By using recycled plastic on the project, Watercare has saved the equivalent of 658,000 plastic bags from ending up in landfill.  

  

Upcycling inspiration

This St Kilda boardwalk has taken recycling to a whole new picturesque level.

Replas took the offcuts from the Enduroplank™ decking and made it into outdoor furniture, creating this exceptional Daintree Seat.

The seats are very versatile, available in free-standing or in-ground options, easily installed in this existing Enduroplank™ decking or any other structure.

Anti-slip eco friendly decking for Sutherland Shire Council residents

A public walkway in Gymea, a suburb located within Sutherland Shire Council, southern Sydney, is situated between the rail line and the shops.

Approximately three and a half metres wide by 35 metres long and with a kick rail on both sides, the Enduroplank™ that has been installed there has been very successful and is used as the main decking.

Council increased the slip rate component by having the walkway coated with an anti slip product which increased the rating to V14, the highest rating.

 

Overcoming obstacles

Replas team-members were approached by a client who wished to build a set of stairs and landings using the infamous Enduroplank™ product. The council that he was quoting for had decided to change their tender to show the recycled-plastic Enduroplank™ instead of the previously specified timber decking, due to the longer life span and higher quality of the product.

The product’s width did not meet the relevant standards for the stair tread depth; however, Enduroplank™ can be cut and modified in order to satisfy individual needs.

Team-members from around the country were more than happy to help with producing photos of various ways in which other people have overcome this challenge in the past.

  

 

Protecting the view

Yarra Ranges Shire Council has chosen to protect the native foliage using a raised Replas' deck.

The Enduroplank™ recycled-plastic decking ensures easy access for workers and visitors and no damage to the valuable environment.

The decking completes a calm, peaceful backdrop in an otherwise busy facility. 

The material is long-lasting, providing a refreshing alternative to traditional timber.

  

Sun, sand and recycled plastic

No trip to the beach is complete without the elaborate hot-sand tribal dance as you try to make your way from the car down to the water without burning your feet.

Beach goers at the South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club on the Arthur Byrne Reserve in Maroubra, New South Wales, can put their screams and flailing arms to rest with Replas to the rescue. With the installation of a beach access pathway and 145 millimetre bollards locals can get down to the beach with ease. Both of these products are made with recycled plastic and look fantastic sitting between the sand and bushland reserve. The pathway is about 160 metres long, two metres wide and was made with Replas' slip-resistant and easy-to-install Enduroplank™. The bollards are virtually maintenance-free, come in a variety of different colours and can be converted into signs.

The South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club provides water awareness education for children, surf sports and lifesaving services and has continued its commitment to environmentally-friendly products and a sustainable future.

Easier access for better learning

Paluma Environmental Education Centre Principal Linda Venn and Maintenance Officer Barry Smith demonstrate the durability of one of the centre’s two new Enduroplank™ decking access.

Now the centre is more easily accessible for everyone wanting to learn more about our environment.

The centre is located about 80 kilometres north of Townsville, Queensland in Paluma and gives visitors the opportunity to observe one of nature’s most beautiful ecosystems at its most diverse.

Kings Canyon gets the royal treatment

In January 2013 a bush fire swept through Kings Canyon in Alice Springs, NT, devastating a timber boardwalk in the area. Instead of repairing it with timber which is vulnerable to further damage the decision was made to use Enduroplank™ decking.

Replas Diamond Club member Bullant Building, installed a magnificent new floating boardwalk made from recycled plastic. The pathway will provide a more durable solution in this harsh environment as it will not crack, split or rot and most importantly in this outback environment, it is resistant to termites.

On the trail at Boorowa

When the Replas display trailer pulled into Boorowa, in NSW, council staff didn't let bad weather stop them from coming out to view the range of recycled-plastic products. The trailer is piled high with decking, furniture, bollards, signage and traffic control items all made from plastic waste that would otherwise have gone to landfill.

If you would like to view the Replas display trailer call us on 1800 REPLAS to arrange a visit.
