The Brolga Bollard recently took on a new challenge, supporting a car park barrier post. Especially designed in our Replas Queensland manufacturing plant the barriers are tough and long-lasting. The rail, an 8 meter width made of composite fibre, is confidently held by the bollards.

This material is extremely lightweight in comparison to other traditional materials, meaning easy handling and installation by one person. Extremely low-maintenance, the barrier is painted a bright yellow, ensuring visibility and safety for drivers.

The Queensland Government and the Charters Towers Regional Council recently completed a joint initiative, the Towers Hill Walking Track. In June 2014 the walking track was built to connect the Charters Towers City to the iconic towers hill, featuring an 800 metre path and a recycled-plastic boardwalk. A covered area, seating, solar lighting and drinking fountains completed the functional plans.

The features on the track reflect the councils commitment to environmental and financial sustainability within the local community. The recycled-plastic and other low-maintenance materials combined with climate appropriate vegetation has created a versatile, environmentally friendly track for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.

  

Daintree National Park is a tropical area of wilderness, home to many popular walks in North Queensland. The Dubuji Boardwalk in particular is a cool, coastal mangrove swamp adjacent to the coast of Myall Beach, south of Cape Tribulation. 

The boardwalk is shaded by enormous fan palms, strangler figs and vines, a peaceful area home to various diverse plants and animals. Incredibly well signposted, the walk is a safe, terrific means to discover the tropical oasis and mangrove within. Absorbing the mangroves adaption to salt water and the ecosystem it supports is a complex discovery on the charming walk.

The CFA Training College in Bangholme, Vic often holds training sessions for 40-60 fire fighters and the two existing timber picnic tables just weren’t sufficient for groups of this size. The annual maintenance was also something these busy volunteers just didn’t have the time for.

Now the outdoor area features five recycled-plastic picnic settings and a Big Bench which can comfortably accommodate our brave fireys. According to Craig Aiton, P.A.D Operator at the college, ‘The new Replas product only requires wiping down and will not fade and lose its colour even though it spends 24 hours a day in the weather’.

  

 

Moreton Bay is made up of stunning blue waters, whether you’re after relaxation or adrenalin, the area has something for everyone. The paradise is well known for its beautiful white sandy beaches, a popular spot to holiday.

On occasion the popular beach was inaccessible due to wind sand erosion leaving a drop off from the adjacent pathway. Moreton Bay Regional Council recently found a solution, installing a new beach access leading to the Moreton Bay aquatic playground. Replas Enduroplank™ Beach Access has ensured residents and visitors can have access to the beach all year round.

The slip resistant material is hard-wearing and particularly suitable for the marine environment. The material refuses to corrode, even when submerged, remaining sturdy and lasting for years to come.

  

Replas pickets were put through their paces at Wade Park in Orange NSW when council tested them against other options for a new picket fence. Throwing cricket balls against the samples soon dismissed two candidates. A metal picket suffered denting and paint chips while a PVC model smashed on impact. In contrast the plastic picket stood up to the test and passed with flying colours.

'The recycle plastic pickets look brilliant, are able to withstand the punishment that cricketers inflict on fencing and the fence elevates the appearance of Wade Park to a premier playing facility for Central West NSW. Council has received positive feedback from users of the facility.’ Nigel Hobden, Manager City Presentation, Orange City Council.
