We manufacture a range of different plank and pole profiles and are constantly adding to our range as the need arises. Please see our plank and pole price list for a comprehensive list of the various profile dimensions we manufacture.

Our recycled plastic planks are manufactured from a formulation of recycled HDPE (High density Polypropylene) LDPE (low density Polypropylene) and PP (Polypropylene) through a process called “flow moulding”

We colour sort our incoming material and blend these with pigments or master batches to achieve the desired colour plank. We do not add any wood flour (or calcium carbonate) into our product as fillers (this is called Wood Plastic Composite or WPC). Due to the usage of recycled plastic in manufacturing these planks, the colour will always vary from batch to batch depending on the availability of our feed stock.

By pre-sorting our incoming recycled material, we are often able to supply our customers with some stimulating bright primary coloured planks for use in children’s Jungle Gyms and furniture and toys. Our standard colours are Brown, Green and Black.

Whilst we utilize the best pigments and colour master batches on the market, the harsh African sun’s Ultraviolet rays will eventually attack the colour pigments and the plank will fade (much the same as leaving your car outside in the sun) This does not mean that the plastic polymer is defective and will break, it just means the colour is being “bleached” out of the plastic.

Our recycled plastic poles and planks are designed to replace wooden equivalents as they are longer lasting and require no maintenance. Recycled plastic planks are a great alternative to using wood, but do come with some limitations…. Plastic planks are not as rigid as wood and will require more bracing and reduced spacing between supports and are generally thicker than wooden planks used for the same application.

Recycled plastic planks also expand and contract with temperature fluctuations. This needs to be factored into any design application.

Please call us and discuss your proposed project utilizing our products prior to ordering, as in some situations, our product may not be suitable for the proposed application.
