“The C-Bar is one of the many buildings owned by Townsville City Council on the Strand sea front and was due for some external maintenance,” explained Matt Knight of Knight Constructions, who recently upgrade the C-Bar with recycled plastic profiles from Replas. The installation consisted of 70 x 20 x 1500 mm grey profiles for the palings on the fence of the C-Bar. “The Replas product was chosen due to colour requirements and the location,” said Matt. Like all recycled plastic products, these grey profiles will not rust or rot in the salt water environment, so close to the beach front. “All slats were fitted with 316 stainless steel countersunk head bolts through the face, for longevity. The solid recycled slats were easy to cut and drill, with the old fence being removed and the new fence installed with a short turnaround due to no requirement for the tedious job of painting slats,” Matt explained. Recycled plastic profiles are made of 98% recycled material, with the remainder being a UV stabiliser and coloured additives. Another feature of recycled plastic products is the resistance to termites allows the harsh environment of the Queensland elements to be no match towards Replas products! As Matt Knight said, “Great product and service.”
