A Recycled Plastic Wood Post will last, at the very least, 5 times longer than treated wood and probably much longer than that.
Plastic waste, when is disposed of in landfill, takes a long time to breakdown. Scientists estimate that the recycled polystyrene, the material used to manufacture this post, takes around 450 years. No one is really sure, but it's definitely a very long time.
As a building and construction material this is a great asset since it offers a long term maintenance free life.
No replacement materials and no associated labour costs for maintenance and replacement translates in savings of up to 80% annually.
Using recycled plastic instead of traditional materials is a no brainer from a purely economic standpoint and it will also reduce the carbon footprint of any project substantially.
Recycled plastic posts and other related materials for new build and refurbishment projects are attractive to clients, financially, and being sustainable meet European and UK goals for sustainability.
100% recycled and recyclable.
