A progressive local council has provided sun protection at a popular bathing beach using the recycled plastic/wood known as Evertuff™.
The Bathing Boxes are clad in Evertuff™, a composite wood/plastic slat made from Australian recycled co-mingled materials. Evertuff™ is extruded into useful shapes, such as squares, rectangles and circles.
Evertuff™ has been used as roof slats, wall slats and decking slats in the bathing boxes. The Evertuff™ slats are screw-fixed to recyclable steel supports which have been brightly coated in marine paints. The bathing boxes are anchored to the ground using “ground anchors”.
Consulting Engineers used testing data to certify the use of Evertuff™ composite recycled plastic/wood profiles for beams, bearers, and decking. Additional uses are for piles, posts, beams, bearers, joists, purloins and decking.
It is now possible to use Australian made Evertuff™ in structures such as pedestrian bridges, boardwalks, shelters, pergolas and viewing platforms.
Evertuff™ profiles are:
• love water
• can be driven
• can be bolted
• can be field adjusted with wood working tools
• can be painted
• can be extruded in long sections up to 6m
Evertuff™ is an Australian recycled resource which has been diverted from landfill and processed in an all Australian extruding factory. The extruding process ensures a constant grade of material, allowing quality control testing of output to engineering specifications. Evertuff™ is maintenance free, resistant to being eaten by insects and will outlast the natural alternative product.
