All our slatted fence panels are made from a wood-plastic composite (WPC), which is a combination of hardwood sawdust and recycled plastic. The timber used is generally from furniture and joinery shops – which is all FSC certified. The HDPE plastic comes from used milk/water plastic bottles that are cleaned up and turned to pellet form – creating a product that is 95% recycled.
WPC has many benefits in comparison to traditional timber fencing. The WPC panels do not require sanding, oiling or painting, and maintain a newer look for much longer.
WPC lasts up to twice as long as traditional fencing and is cheaper to replace should it be damaged. It is also highly resistant to rot, corrosion and decay.
WPC also has good resistance to UV rays, so it will not change colour or fade the same way traditional timber fencing.
The team at Ecoscape UK are on hand to help with all commercial and domestic quotations.
We appreciate it can be difficult to visualise how your slatted fencing project may look with a complete change of material/colour scheme. Take a look at our inspiration gallery showcasing projects that use Ecoscape composite fencing.
