Sixteen months on since opening day, staff of EA Networks Centre, Ashburton are delighted with the performance of their Lyrebird benches. David Folley, plant and maintenance officer of the New Zealand town’s aquatic centre has been evaluating the bench seating. When we visited Ashburton recently, David told us that the benches are “very easy to clean and also to move around as required. We are very happy with the product!”

Further proof that recycled plastic is the perfect material to use in humid situations, in fact anywhere water has an effect on asset maintenance needs.
