The mouth of the Murchison River is a much loved spot for Kalbarri locals to fish. The Shire of Northampton has now provided the perfect spot to cast a line in safety with the addition of a new platform made from recycled plastic and composite fibre. This timber free structure is perfect in this location as it is resistant to moisture and microorganisms and will not rot, crack or split.

Nambucca Shire Council, in NSW, required a strong, durable pedestrian deck to be installed next to an existing road bridge. An existing timber and bitumen surface had deteriorated due to floods that had gone over the bridge seven times in five years. The surface was refurbished by laying an Enduroplankā„¢ floating deck over the top. This provided the perfect solution and will easily cope with any future flood waters.

An 8m bridge at Wallaman Falls National Park, Mount Fox, in Queensland was built by a contractor in Townsville using Enduroplank decking.
