The cost of recycled products have tended to have a higher procured cost compared to tradition solutions but their longevity and durability results in them being a more cost effective option over the long term.

Whole Life Cost Comparison for 100m of recycled plastic decking or walkway: £242 per annum vs. £808 per annum for timber.

Features & Benefits

  • Extremely durable – The walkways have an expected life expectancy of at least five times that of timber alternatives, with little or no visible wear

  • Rot and algae proof – Very little or no maintenance is required and no painting nor preservatives need to be applied

  • Crack proof and insect resistant – Recycled composite material will not crack or dry out and is impervious to attack by insects

  • Non slip – The surface texture created in the manufacturing process produces a low slip risk surface and does not require the addition of chicken wire.

  • Splinter free – Recycled composite materials do not splinter

  • Less flammable – The walkways are more difficult to ignite than timber equivalents

  • Whole life costs – Whole life costs are considerably reduced

  • Reduced frost/ice hazard – Composite materials also retain latent heat efficiently resulting in a reduced frost/ice hazard for users of walkways or hard standing during cold periods

Environmental Benefits

  • Their purchase stimulates demand for recycled raw materials, closing the loop and diverting material from landfill
  • 1500 plastic bottles diverted from landfill for every 1.5 metre section of a typical raised walkway
  • No preservative required therefore complies with the requirements restricting the use of Copper Chromium Arsenate
  • Recycled composite materials are completely inert and will not leach any chemicals into water or soil even in wet conditions
  • Recycled plastic products are completely recyclable at the end of their useful lifespan
  • Reduction of energy consumption by 66%
  • Production of only a third of the sulphur dioxide
  • Production of only half of the nitrous oxide
  • Reduction of carbon dioxide generation by two-and-a-half times
  • Reduction of carbon dioxide generation by two-and-a-half times
  • Conservation of non-renewable fossil fuels
  • Conventional plastic production uses 8% of the world’s oil production, 4% as feedstock and 4% during manufacture
