The natural characteristics of polymer are utilised to manufacture hard-wearing, smooth-faced, versatile boards suitable for a variety of applications in agriculture, construction and beyond. EcoSheet is engineered to perform as an alternative to imported plywood, or to virgin plastic panels, yet in turn are fully recyclable at end-of-life.
Colin Bucknell from Devon, an animal housing manufacturer, is using EcoSheet in his chicken arcs: “Whereas plywood rots easily, EcoSheet doesn’t and it is easier to jet wash clean, making it more disease resistant. This is certainly true in the case of red mite, which has really been cut down as a result of using EcoSheet.”
Charlie Hughes, senior project manager in Wynnstay comments: “EcoSheet is proving to be a successful product for us. The many applications EcoSheet has for our agricultural customers is proving to be the reason for its success. Farmers are increasingly looking for products to give longer service life to keep costs down, when comparing EcoSheet to plywood its lifespan makes it very cost effective, plus the benefits of being able to wash down and disinfect compared to wood which can harbour bacteria and disease makes EcoSheet an attractive product”.
Mr Wilson, Ireland who has used EcoSheet for show stands and cubicle dividers states: “EcoSheet is perfect for my applications because it is 100% waterproof, easy to use and hygienic, it is strong and looks smart”.
Llangorse Sailing Club, Wales has used EcoSheet as a water dam and says: “EcoSheet is ideal in aquatic situations as it is 100% waterproof, durable and requires no maintenance. It is easy to work with and we will definitely be using it for future projects”.
Mr James, Farmer from Fishguard says: “EcoSheets lifespan outstands all other products I use. It is strong and resistant to flurry and silage. It withstands pressure from implements and is far superior to the wood and metals that I have been using because it is solid, maintenance free and easy to handle. It is easy to clean and still looks new and smart – very successful”.
Peter Ball, 2K Manufacturing: “EcoSheet has a number of advantages over plywood in practical terms, including the fact it doesn’t rot, doesn’t contain adhesives and preservatives and is easier to clean improving animal welfare. It is more durable and can be recycled again and again”.
Animal housing manufacturer, Richard Rees from Wenvoe, South Wales says: “My customers have been asking for more sustainable materials and EcoSheet is the ideal solution as it is made with waste plastic and can be recycled after use. On top of that it’s a fantastic product to work with and keep clean.”
Windsor Howells from Newport, South Wales also extols the virtues of EcoSheet: “I’m using it in the construction of sheds and also for horse stable panelling. I like the fact it doesn’t rot and can be painted easily. Long term, I want to use it to make sheep and cattle feeders because it is such a durable material.”
