Eco Friendly Recycled Plastic Gates & Fencing

Date: 19th April 2021 Agriculture & Equestrian

An increasing number of consumers are taking an active interest in the environment. As a result, more and more people are assessing the environmental credentials of a business when deciding whether or not to enlist their services or buy their products.

Centriforce has been one of the early adopters in this revolution, with our range of innovative 100% recycled plastic products being made available as alternatives to traditional materials in an ever increasing range of applications.

One area where our recycled plastic materials offer a plethora of benefits, in addition to environmental support, is in the construction of gates and fencing. Read on to learn how the use of our materials in such applications offers the potential for cost savings as well as supporting your business’s environmental and sustainability policies.


Built To Last…

One of the problems with traditional wood based materials is the fact that they offer very little protection from water when used to build gates and fencing. This doesn’t just lead to higher rates of decay, but can also bring additional complications such as swelling which can make it tricky to open and close gates whenever the need arises.

This is where recycled plastic fence panels have the advantage. Our Stokbord® Sheet and Duraplas ® Profiles are constructed from 100% recycled plastic and are now often being used as an alternative to traditional woods such as timber and plywood when constructing recycled plastic fence panels and gates.

Not only does the use of our Stokbord ® Sheet and Duraplas products support our customers’ in achieving their environmental policies and sustainability goals, but the fact that it is waterproof makes recycled plastic fence panels and posts far less prone to swelling and are also longer lasting. Many of our clients therefore find that opting for recycled plastic gates and fencing brings long term cost savings when compared with constructions made using traditional wooden materials.


Agricultural Benefits

The benefits brought about by our recycled plastic fence posts and panels are applicable in a wide range of industries, with the agricultural and equestrian sectors being one of the most notable.

A large number of our clients in these sectors have opted to create recycled plastic gates, fencing and animal habitats as opposed to relying on non-renewable materials such as plywood and timber which will ultimately be more susceptible to wear and swelling.

One additional consideration which is sure to be appeal to those operating in the agricultural sector is the fact that our recycled products are chemically inert. This means that they will not distribute chemicals into the surrounding habitat which can negatively impact on any wildlife residing in the surrounding area.
