Hybrid FRP & WPC Cantilevered Boat Deck – Adelaide City Council

The Adelaide City Council in South Australia required a replacement boat deck for a decades old timber structure used by Prince Alfred College and Seymour College rowing clubs on the River Torrens in central Adelaide. Given bedrock was as far as 67m under ground level, driven piles were not an option and SIS were required to design a highly engineered cantilevered structure to suit the application. Council also required that high performance materials were used with no maintenance requirements. To fulfil this brief, SIS designers used an innovative mixture of our StructuralComp FRP and WPC products for a structure that would serve council and stakeholder needs for decades to come.

SISCo-FC Composite Fixings for Aquaculture Applications

Aquaculture, the farming of aquatic animals, is the fastest growing animal food-producing sector. SISCo-FC Composite Fixings made in the USA are ultra high performance plastics that are now entering vast and untapped markets and applications in regions around the world including ASIA, the Middle East and Australia. For a component replacement for steel that will not corrode in Aquaculture farms and marina / floating dock systems, to ultra light weight components for Sikorsky helicopters & satellites. SISCo-FC Composite Fixings are the answer to problems found when using traditional alternatives.
