With dwindling wood reserves and the high costs of wood importation, South Africa needs an alternative to natural wood for the fabricating of:
*Jungle gyms and school decks
*Construction and custom fits
Using recycled plastic not only creates a superior product; it allows for a big reduction of carbon emissions and supports recycling.
Although more expensive to produce than wood, the longevity of the plastic product counters the initial capital outlay, with considerable savings over time – a real value for money product.
