Fibre-reinforced plastic steps ensure long life-span
Bull Creek Wetland is a rare commodity – a wildlife corridor only kilometres from the heart of a capital city.
Home to a wide variety of native wildflowers, birdlife, as well as several types of frogs, snakes and lizards, the wetlands attract sizeable crowds of nature lovers throughout the year.
With such appeal and potential high levels of foot traffic, Melville City Council sought to replace an aging, increasingly dangerous, set of timber access steps.
Landmark Products designed and manufactured an attractive new set of steps, that combine aesthetics with longevity.
Just under 10 metres long, the staircase includes two landings (top and middle), and 16 steps, all two metres wide and made from Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP). The meshed finish of the FRP steps and landing, allows dirt to pass through reducing the need for maintenance.
The FRP posts are joined by an FRP mid-rail, and a stainless still handrail.
Landmark install team removed the previous steps, and installed the new structure, all completed within 1.5 weeks.
