Recycled Plastic Gates - trouble free and Easy to maintain
Recycled plastic wood, which is a dense version of blown, extruded polystyrene foam, has the same density and weight as some South American hard woods, and has even been mistaken for wood by some of our customers, as it has quite a close resemblance to the real thing. We use it both for plastic gates and fencing as well as Recycled Plastic Garden Furniture.
It can be made in any RAL colour and appear like any type of wood, including golden oak or wood with white or grey tones. The colour is all the way through and will never need paint or preservative as it will never rot. The highest UV protection you can get against fading colour is 8 and Kedel's plastic wood is 7-8.
We also make gates in Recycled Plastic Lumber derived from most of what families throw away every day into their recycling bin - plastic milk bottles, plastic bags, buckets, paint trays etc. In the UK we tend not to sort our plastic very well, so this makes getting bright colours more difficult, so generally our mixed plastic will only be found in black or nut brown colours. We often choose to combine both types of plastic in our products.
The black double gates above are made from 100 x 18mm recycled plastic wood tongue and groove planks, and these are attached to the walls at each side via 100 x 100mm recycled mixed plastic posts. The overlap is a 120 x 20 Plastic wood profile. We also combine both in some of our school outdoor play and learn furniture and multicoloured picnic tables and benches which have plastic wood tops which we can make in bright colours often preferred by children. You will almost certainly never need to pay them much attention. Once installed they stay beautiful and low maintenance for years on end.
WHY RECYCLED PLASTIC?
Recycled plastic as a building material is one of the greatest innovations; it's affordable, lightweight, sustainable, low maintenance, durable, and retains its color and clean appearance for decades. Recycled plastic gives household waste such as plastic shampoo and milk bottles a new life. Your purchase of our recycled and recyclable gates is actively helping us combat the scourge that is plastic waste pollution. Once in the landfill, plastic can take decades to biodegrade. Further, it endangers the animals that might mistake it for food. The benefit of recycled plastic gates specifically is the true value; at an affordable rate comes a durable and beautiful addition to your enclosure that is designed to fit with an existing wall or post. Lightweight, available in endless design options, easy to install, and great for the environment, recycled plastic gates are hard to turn down.
