Why switch to recycled plastic fencing?

Why switch to recycled plastic fencing?

Whether you’re planning on updating your current fencing, or strong winds have forced you to find a quick replacement, recycled plastic fencing is a great choice. Our recycled plastic material has been used to create strong, durable fencing posts and gates, a smart solution for all commercial and domestic properties. We believe that our recycled plastic fencing is a better, safer choice for any fencing project, offering a low-carbon, eco-friendly alternative to wood, plastic or other traditional fence materials. 

Let’s take a look at just some of the benefits of switching from traditional fencing materials to recycled plastic products. 

It’s Incredibly Durable

Unfortunately, wood and moisture are two things that do not mix, especially outdoors; even modern composite materials will eventually start to deteriorate due when exposed to the elements. Traditional wood fencing may look the part when first installed, but after a few years, it will soon start to age and rot, even if treated. By switching the recycled plastic fencing, you don’t have to worry about signs of ageing or damage caused by moisture absorption. Our materials are designed to withstand even the harshest weather conditions, from rain and snow to bright sunshine.

It’s the Eco-Friendly Choice

Whether you’re trying to reduce your own carbon footprint or make your workplace more eco-friendly, recycled plastic products are a great place to start. Our fence posts and gates are made entirely from recycled plastic waste that at one time would have been destined for landfill, incineration or even the ocean. As well as being incredibly long-lasting, these fencing products keep plastic waste out of dangerous landfills, giving you peace of mind that you’re making the greener choice while still enjoying high-quality products. 

It Looks the Part

For many, the appeal of wood or composite fencing lies in the aesthetics. Whether it’s a commercial or domestic project, it’s understandable that you want your new fence or gate to look the part and live up to expectations. Our recycled plastic fencing is designed to look just like wood, with a wide range of styles, colours and variations available to match your requirements. Unlike wood, our materials will not splinter, fade or rot, so by switching to recycled plastic, you can enjoy a fence that looks brand new for a lot longer! 

It’s Very Low-Maintenance

Traditional fencing materials, such as wood or timber, need upkeep. For many, this means factoring in time to treat, clean, repair or even replace fencing boards to maintain their fence's look and safety. Recycled plastic fencing is different; it’s designed to be installed once and remain looking as good as new. No more painting or staining your fence each summer; our recycled fencing boards have colour manufactured throughout, plus they are impervious to any fading caused by UV lights. Moisture will also be kept at bay, meaning that you can avoid any rot, cracks or warping. To maintain recycled plastic fencing, all you need to do is keep it clean, saving you time and money (as well as saving the environment!)

It Deters Insects

While we’re keen to promote insects enjoying our gardens, we don't want them invading our fencing or gates! Wooden fences can quickly turn into a haven for all kinds of insects, from beads and wasps to spiders, termites and ants, and once they set up shop, the damage can be insurmountable. Insects gravitate to wood fences that are starting to rot and crack, making themselves at home as they quickly bore into the material. By switching to recycled plastic fencing, you won’t have this problem, mainly because our materials do not crack or rot. If the insects have nowhere to go, they’ll quickly move on, mainly because they cannot bore into the material. 

If you’re planning on replacing or upgrading your fencing, there’s no better time to do it. Let’s take a look at all of the advantages of switching to this eco-friendly material!
