Our automated shipping calculator is based for delivery to Australia, New Zealand and other South Pacific nations. We ship worldwide but are limited to products under one metre x one metre based on a weight of 20 kilograms or less.
Like all good businesses we like to be progressive in the products we sell and the materials we use.
For example, the 12mm black, oyster grey & off-white sheets used to manufacture our tackle storage components, storage drawers etc is made from recycled HDPE & PP. It has a less dense core with a solid embossed outer skin. What this means is, the edges aren't as smooth as some of the non-recycled plastics but is far lighter and maintains its UV Stability, Mould Resistance etc.
Helping the Environment, whether small or large, is a wonderful thing.

Although, we would like to point out that the HDPE found in our Filleting & Bait Board inserts is approved for food applications (it is the same plastic used for making chopping boards.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic made from material that can be melted and reformed. It is rugged, flexible and durable with a high strength-to-density ratio.
Type 2 HDPE recycled plastic are considered Eco-Friendly and are recyclable at the end of their useful life. HDPE plastic is the most environmentally stable of all plastics giving off no harmful fumes into the environment.
HDPE creates no harmful emissions during its production or during its use by the consumer. Also, HDPE leaks no toxic chemicals into the soil or water.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer that is recognised for its strength, stiffness and resistance to heat. This plastic can be co-polymerised to increase its strength and durability. It is generally used in products that are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Type 5 PP is recyclable and considered safe.
PP does not present stress-cracking problems and offers excellent electrical and chemical resistance at higher temperatures. While the properties of PP are similar to those of Polyethylene, there are specific differences. These include a lower density, high softening point (PP doesn't melt below 160 degrees celsius, Polyethylene, a more common plastic, will anneal at around 100 degrees celsius) and higher rigidity and hardness. Additives are applied to all commercially produced polypropylene resins to protect the polymer during processing and to enhance end-use performance.
EVA Foam is a closed cell foam made from Ethylene Vinyl Acetate and blended co-polymers. It has a high level of chemical cross linking. The result is a semi-rigid product with a fine uniform cell structure that is suitable for use in a wide variety of situations and applications.
Benefits of EVA Foam include: Impact and vibration absorption, Weather and chemical resistance including splash resistance to oils and fuels, Acoustic and thermal insulation properties, Buoyancy with low water absorption.
EVA and polyethylene are similar forms of closed cell foam; however EVA is softer and more resilient than polyethylene, and has greater recovery characteristics after compression.
EVA Foam is consider safe by the ACCC and has no or little amounts of Formamide
Marine Decks are easily cleaned simply with warm soapy water with general purpose cleaners, for stubborn grime areas use items like white scourer pads. Marine Decks can be high pressure cleaned, though caution has to be taken to how close you place the nozzle and what fan type and pressure is used. Do not use acid based products such as TR 50 floor cleaners.
We use 3M adhesive on Marine Decks, so you know their reputation in the business is second to none. Your decking is going to stick really well, but even better starting with clean surfaces prior to installation.
It can be removed with a little effort depending on how clean the surface was prior to installation. The best source of information on how to remove a product and adhesive residue is by researching 3M adhesive product removal.
In a nutshell, Yes. For obvious reasons we don't hold all the colours in stock. If there is a colour you have in mind and can't find it on our website, please get in touch with us. If you live close by we can make a suitable time for you to come out and have a look at the colour swatch. Otherwise we can take a photo of the closest colour you have enquired about and email it to you. Once you have made your selection, we can put together a price and an approximate delivery date.
Unfortunately we can't send prospective buyers samples. We are happy though, to send photos via email of the different colours that we don't generically keep in stock. Or, if you live close by, we are more than happy to make a mutual time for you to come see us and take a look at the EVA Foam.
