British Recycled Products

Recycled mixed plastic lumber

Recycled mixed plastic lumber—also known as recycled composite profiles (RCPs)—is the basic building block from which the British Recycled Products range of environmentally friendly maintenance-free furniture and sustainable construction products are made.

Unlike the majority of recycled plastic material that is imported from Holland, Germany, France and Poland, they are exclusively manufactured in Britain using only British waste plastics that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

Designed to replace traditional construction materials, RCPs are impervious to water and will not rot. They allow for the easy and quick construction of fences, revetments, boardwalks and pontoons, to name but a few applications, where the area could be subject to flooding or standing water. They are also incredibly strong, impact resistant and vandal proof, making them a long term zero maintenance solution.

This allows significant commercial and technical benefits, not least, lowering the carbon footprint of construction projects compared to traditional solutions.

Coupled with the major positive environmental benefits, RCPs can be used for any application traditionally solved using timber, concrete or metals and provides an economical and environmentally sustainable alternative to these materials.
