Moodie Outdoor Products recently supplied two custom park elements for a nature themed play area at Shark Park, Cronulla, NSW. The plans required a colourful solid shade structure that would be surrounded by seats covered by rubber softfall in the shape of red toadstools.

Benefits of using FRP materials for custom projects

Moodie Outdoor Products has extensive experience in combining diverse materials for your custom project, including our Roocycle recycled materials, FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer), along with traditional metal, wood and plastic materials.

In this article, we look at the benefits of working with FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polymer) and possible applications in outdoor infrastructure products.

Safety and maintenance

FRP members are extremely strong and have a long history of use in public infrastructure. The material doesn’t suffer fatigue or corrosion effects leading to a long life-span. These aspects contribute to a high engineering safety level.

FRP has a reputation for low maintenance costs, an important consideration over the life-time of a public infrastructure installation. FRP is not affected by UV radiation, temperature changes, or marine environments. FRP has vandal resistant qualities as well.

Installation

FRP products can be assembled on-site or arrive factory assembled. FRP members are easily drilled and normal hardware can be used to connect members together. FRP is light-weight which may lead to other cost savings in terms of site preparation. FRP is also a good sustainable material to choose.

Applications in public infrastructure projects

Moodie Outdoor Products has delivered custom projects solely in FRP, as well as integrating FRP with recycled plastic and traditional materials. Our capabilities cover:

Pedestrian and bicycle bridges

Pedestrian access ramps

Boardwalks

Boat ramps

Shelters

Stairs

Project completion – custom walkway to bridge connection

Moodie Outdoor Products successfully designed and installed a custom walkway and bridge connection in Granville, NSW. Walkway was constructed using Roocycle recycled plastic as bearers, and FRP for the joists and decking.

Custom walkway made from Roocycle recycled plastic bearers and FRP joists and decks with cycle rails.

The site was challenging being situated alongside a storm water channel. The soil was loose fill and required screw pier foundations down to as much as 6 metres to meet engineers specifications. The bicycle compliant rail was a Moddex galvanised steel BS45 bike rail balustrade.

Roocycle ET Pedestrian Bridges – The Kokoda Memorial Walkway

008

Moodie Outdoor Products has recently completed an upgrade to The Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway in Concord. The Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway covers more than 800 metres from Rhodes Station to Concord Hospital in Sydney’s inner-west, and runs along the mangrove-studded shores of Brays Bay on the Parramatta River. The walkway is a unique tribute to the bravery of Australian troops who fought through atrocious conditions and against vastly superior enemy numbers in the Papua-New Guinea campaign of July 1942-January 1943.

009

The two old timber bridges along the track had significant termite, and dry rot damage. They needed to be replaced with a strong, durable, long lasting building material that required no maintenance. Roocycle ET was the obvious choice for a complete rebuild with it’s ‘raw charcoal’ colour blending nicely into the natural bushland environment.

Large ET posts (250x250mm) were produced to replace the old existing ones and 230x130mm beams were used to span the creek beds. Roocycle ET commercial Tri-Deck (190x55mm) was used for decking.
