Located in mid-Wales, Llandrindod Wells Lake is one of the most scenic and peaceful locations that Wales has to offer. Thanks to its sheer beauty, Llandrindod Wells Lake attracts countless visitors each year, and the Polydeck team are proud to provide our services to Powys County Council to improve this beautiful area.

In our latest case study, the Polydeck team provide details on how we were able to help Powys County Council, and explain how we can provide you with the perfect non slip solution too.

Llandrindod Wells Lake required an accessible boardwalk solution

To help increase visitor numbers, Powys County Council wanted to install a fully accessible boardwalk at the Llandrindod Lake Park. As part of a whole regeneration scheme the council’s aim was to get the community closer to nature. The boardwalk needed to be wheelchair and pushchair friendly, meaning a surface that is hard wearing, long– lasting and anti– slip.

Polydeck were able to help meet all their criteria.

Polydeck provided the perfect anti slip viewing platform

Polydeck suggested the use of their glass reinforced polyester (GRP) boardwalk. Polydeck’s boardwalks are constructed using GRP, allowing for outstanding durability, and it’s polyethylene terephthalate (PET) core gives the boardwalks superb strength. The PET foam is used for the core of the deck, posts and rails. Each post contains approx. 47 recycled bottles. This means the boardwalks are a great alternative to timber. They re more durable, long– lasting and safer for public use. The boardwalks won’t rot, have an anti– slip surface and will last in excess of 30 years with minimal maintenance.

Available in two different colours, Powys CC chose a darker timber effect design so that it looked fitting in the rural environment.

Manufactured in Polydeck’s Bristol factory, the boardwalk materials were produced, delivered and fitted quickly– all within Powys CC timescales. Take a closer look at non slip boardwalks from Polydeck.

Most importantly, children, adults and wheelchair users will be able to bird watch, fish and generally get closer to nature thanks to this regeneration scheme.

Stephen Gealy, Countryside & Outdoor Recreation Officer for Powys CC commented; “together we have produced a safe and aesthetically pleasing lookout, and the public so far seem to be enjoying being able to get so close to.
