Allplastics Engineering was engaged by a Dee Why school on Sydney’s Northern Beaches to create a colourful surrounding for the students' playground.
Allplastics collaborated with the installers LaCava Concepts to select the most appropriate materials for the application, and custom fabricated the colourful acrylic panels as well as clear polycarbonate sheets to site requirements. Professionally installed by LaCava, the panels bring stunning vibrant colour and safety to the school playground.
Tinted acrylic sheets in various colours were installed on the outer perimeter of the fence while the abrasion resistant polycarbonate clear panels were placed on the inside. Acrylic panels offer outstanding weather resistance with no discolouration as well as impact resistance and optical performance, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.
The polycarbonate panels installed on the inner side are virtually unbreakable and protect the tinted acrylic panels against damage from accidental contact during ball games. The abrasion-resistant coating maintains the clarity of the polycarbonate while also providing extra UV protection against sunlight in the summer months.
The school authorities were extremely impressed with the results. Arianne McCombie, Special Ed teacher at DET said, “Absolutely thrilled with the work. It looks fabulous! The staff and students love it!”
