When the RSPB created a 500m flat (ground level) and raised boardwalk at its Ham Wall Reserve Visitor Centre in Somerset, It chose recycled plastic for its suitability in a wetland environment, where structural decay and leaching are major concerns.
The facilities are used by the blind, less able and wheelchair visitors. The recycled plastic from Centriforce with its unique roughened surface provides a safe, slip resistant decking. Handrails can also be extruded in a smooth finish so that they do chaff the skin.
"We are very please with this safe, secure and economic installation" Sally Mills, RSPB
