In a world first, Mitre 10’s Frankston store will sell Replas recycled-plastic products, made from its own plastic waste. In conjunction with Replas, Mitre 10 has launched a range of bollards and Enduroplanking™, which will be sold in direct competition to its traditional timber products.

‘We believe that once our customers realise there is a viable alternative to traditional wooden bollards and decking, they will be keen to give it a go,’ said Trade Supervisor John Betts. ‘Mitre 10 is proud to be involved in this innovative project, and looks forward to recommending the range to our market as a fantastic, environmentally-sustainable solution.’

In keeping with Mitre 10’s commitment to the environment, the Frankston store has also installed Replas speed humps in the car park, rather than metal, concrete or rubber alternatives.

The Penguin Parade at Philip Island Nature Parks in Victoria is one of Australia’s premier tourist attractions. Hundreds of visitors gather at dusk each day to enjoy the spectacle, as the world’s smallest penguins waddle up the beach to the safety of the dunes. Until now, those seated in the main viewing area perched only on hard and frequently chilly concrete steps.

Recently, Enduroplanks™ have been fitted to these concrete steps, resulting in a much more comfortable viewing experience for visitors − particularly on those cold winter nights.

This simple, inexpensive and effective solution is a great example of how our products are being used in innovative ways.

Toowoomba, like many towns, was devastated by the recent floods. Structures were destroyed as vehicles and debris were carried downstream in the huge tsunami-like walls of water.

The Toowoomba Bird Habitat stood right in the path of this destruction. Made from Enduroplank™ and composite fibre, the viewing platform was inundated, yet after the flooding abated, stood unscathed.

 

Beautiful Lizard Island, situated off the coast of far north Queensland, features some of the best marlin fishing in the world. It also boasts some of the most hostile weather conditions, with temperatures hovering in the mid-thirties throughout the year, complete with monsoon rainfall.

That’s why Queensland Parks and Wildlife chose Replas’ Enduroplank™ decking, bollards, stair treads and signage to build their new boardwalk; these sturdy products will not need constant maintenance to retain their stylish appearance.

 

Located just off Davey's Bay Road in Mount Eliza, this jetty faces north and features a fantastic view of the city of Melbourne on the opposite side of Port Philip Bay. The Davey's Bay Yacht Club members chose Enduroplank™ decking to update the jetty, as the recycled plastic is perfect for extreme coastal conditions.

Whilst the old wooden planks needed replacing every five years, the Enduroplanks™ will show no signs of wear after ten years.

 

When the timber decking at the lookout at Royal Park in Tasmania needed replacing, Launceston City Council wanted to find a more sustainable solution. The forward thinking Parks team decided recycled plastic was the answer.

The longevity of Enduroplank™ will ensure that the decking looks as stunning as the views of the beautiful Tamar River for many years to come.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified the need to upgrade the Kulki Boardwalk and viewing platform in Queensland, in order to allow public access to one of the most spectacular viewing areas in the Daintree National Park.

The EPA realised the value of using our Enduroplank™ decking, providing them with a lasting, low maintenance and sustainable product.

The Kulki boardwalk begins in the car park, crosses a salt marsh area and winds its way up a slight incline on the side of a hill, finally revealing the sensational platform view of Cape Tribulation.

Enduroplank™ decking is the ideal choice for beach access pathways, as salt water will not corrode the material when submerged. To create the beach access, recycled-plastic slats are used as floating bearers, sturdy Enduroplanks™ are screwed into place, and the sand does the rest.

The grooved finish of the Enduroplank™ ensures a non-slip surface which doesn’t heat up in the sun, due to airflow movement between the raised fins on each plank. Beach access pathways help reduce sand erosion, as they encourage visitors to stick to the official beach entry corridor.

Shown here are several of the eight recycled-plastic beach pathways that have now been installed in Ballina, New South Wales.

Brisbane City Council has been faced with a problem in the Mount Coot-tha Botanical Gardens for some time. The original bitumen pathway had been damaged by the park’s extensive tree root systems, requiring constant maintenance.

The solution was to use Replas Enduroplank™ decking, as it is flexible and allows for movement. The end result looks fantastic, and visitors can now enjoy a stroll in the garden for many years to come.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service decided to trial the use of Replas Enduroplank™ material on a section of Bribie Island, popular with four wheel drivers but continually damaged by erosion.

The track was built by laying bearers on the sand and attaching the Enduroplanks™ upside-down. This gives enormous traction to vehicles, allowing them to cross the area without becoming bogged and damaging the tracks. The ranger in charge, David Johnson, reported that since the installation around 1000 vehicles had traversed the planking, none becoming bogged.
