Advanced Plastic Recycling offers a sustainable composite fencing solution for open space project specifiers and rural property owners looking to move away from more maintenance-intensive timber.
Given the harsh Australian environment, many regional property owners and open space project specifiers are seeking alternatives to traditional timber without the ongoing maintenance costs.
Wood plastic composite (WPC) from Advanced Plastic Recycling (APR) offers a recycled material alternative that is, strong, enduring and virtually maintenance free.
Made in Australia from locally sourced recycled kerbside plastic and untreated timber waste, wood plastic composite (WPC) is the ideal solution for sustainable rural landscapes in farming and vineyard applications.
- Water resistant | won’t rot, crack or rust
- Safe | no sharp edges or splinters
- Low maintenance | no painting or staining required
- Termite resistant
LOCAL MANUFACTURER’S SUSTAINABLE FENCING SOLUTION
Due to the recent bush fires in Australia, there will be a significant impact on the availability of timber supplies required to rebuild post and rail fences in fire affected areas. APR have been operating for 16 years on a state-of-art continuous extrusion line, and have the capacity to produce up to 7000 standard 1.8 metre posts (12,600 metres) each week – ensuring an ample and consistent product supply.
THE BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN DURABLE WPC MATERIAL FOR RURAL, AGRICULTURAL AND CIVIL APPLICATIONS
Durability and Long-Life Span| WPC material delivers the best of both worlds with the longevity of plastic and the rigidity of wood, which is vital in the harsh Australian environment.
Environmentally sustainable solution to Australia’s plastic problem| Production of 7000 posts each week would consume approximately 84 tonne of WPC, including 42 tonne of waste plastic. That’s equivalent to 462,000 milk bottles from the council kerbside collection!
Boosts to local employment and local economy | Every 10,000 tonnes of materials recycled creates 9.2 full-time jobs, compared to only 2.8 jobs if the materials were sent to landfill.*
