Recycled Mixed Plastic Fence Pales 100 x 25mm
Although the initial outlay is obviously more for recycled plastic compared to wood, the comparison isn't like for like.
Recycled mixed plastic pales are highly cost effective (See WRAP Cost Comparison Study) and will outlast any wooden equivalent by decades.
In addition it will never require the expense of paint and the labour that goes with regular maintenance. Pay back of the initial installation costs takes just 2-5 years.
Housing associations such as Your Housing, who have 33,000 houses and properties across the North West, and Whitefriars, a member of the West Mercia Housing Group, with over 27,000 properties around the Midlands, have begun replacing all their wooded fences with our recycled plastic.
They began a trial of recycled plastic fencing about 5 years ago to see if it would make savings over the lifetime of the product, as well as maintain the appearance of their housing estates up and down the country.
Paul Stanning, Your Housing's Manager on their Partington Estate in South Manchester initially thought the cost was rather high, but after 4 years he says they have not had to replace a single recycled plastic fence panel, and of course there are no longer any expenses for going on maintenance.
