Maintenance annually and replacement in about 7 years. This has been the accepted tradition till now.
Recycled Plastic Decking changes everything, from maintenance requirements, which will completely disappear, to replacement, which is unlikely to be needed in our lifetimes unless we start having earthquakes in the UK.
You see chicken wire in use here at Moses Gate Country Park near Bolton, which is meant to help prevent slipping on the green algae that builds up over time. The chicken wire was not installed initially be became essential after about a year. Unfortunately, you can see that it soon becomes a trip hazard itself with regular breakages in heavy traffic areas.
Algae beds into wood grain and for this reason is difficult to eradicate as even after cleaning the remaining algae embedded in the wood soon returns. Recycled plastic is impervious to mould. It cannot penetrate the surface and is easy to completely remove with a stiff brush or jet spray even if it eventually appears on the surface. Customers tell us it takes about 3 years before it appears and this is because there is nothing substantial for it to adhere to on a Recycled Plastic Decking Profile.
Recycled plastic decking can be used wherever you might expect to see wooden decking boards.No Maintenance Required - reduced lifetime cost
Wood is expected to lose its good looks and struggle to survive for more than a few years.
Like all our recycled plastic decking boards, 150 x 38 boards are impervious to moisture, mould and insects and will maintain their appearance for decades without any maintenance other than cleaning with soap water and brush or jet spray.
The type of recycled plastic used for manufacture of this recycled plastic decking comes from all the plastic waste thrown out by British households every week and is made to Kedel's ULTRA Specification or Robust Specification standards.
100% British Recycled Plastic
Kedel mixed plastic decking is 100% British Recycled Plastic. Plastic milk bottles, old plastic buckets, and other assorted plastic containers are first cut into flakes, and then melted down and mixed, before being forced under pressure into a steel mould.
The finished product is a solid, heavy duty, robust material widely used for decking by local authorities and other institutions for public areas which take heavy traffic all the year round.
No maintenance required.
No painting, varnishing or preservatives.
No splintering or cracking.
Never gets waterlogged and is immune to the ravages of frost and water that destroys most other materials.
Long-Life and Low Carbon Footprint
This means that investment in refurbishment using recycled plastic decking of this type has a long-term value, requires little or no additional maintenance, looks good throughout its 50+ years life, AND has a low carbon footprint which will become a building and refurbishment requirement by 2016.
Use of Recycled Plastic for Decking has the added advantage of keeping a wide variety of plastics out of a landfill.
Why pay for expensive landfill when 30% of what we are putting in it is plastic that can be turned into something genuinely useful with a long list of financial and ecological advantages.
Use of recycled plastic decking in new build and construction projects or for refurbishment of existing facilities is both highly economical as well as ecologically sound.
Unaffected by most chemicals and acids
Better slip resistance than wood even when wet
