Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic College in Alice Springs, NT, have included recycled plastic profiles in their playground area as a capping on top of bricks to be used for seating. “I was searching for a safe and durable product, resilient in the harsh Alice Springs environment with ranges from -5°C to 45°C most years. I wanted something safe and smooth for the children to sit around a sand play area, which wouldn’t scratch or have a sharp edge if a child fell and hit their head,” explains Ian Clarke, Business Manager – Operations for Our Lady Catholic School. The 200 x 40 x 1800 mm profiles have worked seamlessly, “low maintenance, minimal risk of injury, easy to install, longevity, sustainability,” continued Ian when describing the benefits of the Replas product. Recycled plastic profiles from Replas come in a huge range of colours, widths and lengths and are available either rectangular or square. They are suitable for a range of uses such as furniture, signage, boardwalk kick rails and to create many other outdoor products. “Replas has a good range of sustainable recycled products,” said Ian, “Australian made and a supportive, communicative company to work with.”
