Replas Construct Composite-Fibre Boardwalk

11 September 2009

Ferntree Gully, 20 miles north-east of Melbourne, has seen the application of a 75 metre boardwalk, which boasts steps made from composite fibre and recycled plastic.

The structure provides a pedestrian right-of-way on a steep incline that links the upper and lower sections of Beech Close.

The brief required the construction to be environmentally sustainable, long-lasting, low-maintenance and for local residents to traverse. According to representatives, Replas selected carbon fibre due to its strength to weight ratio, along with additional beneficial properties such as its resistance to rust and splitting.

Replas offers sturdy fibre composite structural components for a variety of boardwalk projects, including footbridges, decks, cycle paths and jetty applications.
