The new brown blend of Plaswood lumber is likely to appeal to local authorities, landscapers and construction contractors. It complements the popular Jet Black and six other colour options to provide long-lasting materials for boardwalks, decking, jetties, fencing, furniture and structures exposed to wet or harsh environments.
Plaswood lumber does not degrade or rot with age, nor does it require any painting or chemical treatment prior to use or as maintenance. Tough and durable, the product will not splinter, crack or dry out and it is resistant to insect attack. Due to its surface it is also reportedly more resistant to vandalism such as graffiti.
"Plaswood offers customers great value for money over a long period," says BPI Recycled Products director Mike Baxter. "It is just a case of fit and forget. Once it is installed, you don't have to worry about degradation, painting or preserving the material. Architects and contractors are increasingly specifying Plaswood as an environmentally supportive direct substitute for wood, concrete and steel sections. We are also seeing more builders' merchants ordering Plaswood as they look to grow their eco ranges."
