Play Panels

Our range of play panels are made from durable HDPE (High-density polyethylene). The versatile properties of the material including being UV stabilised, makes it resistant to fading, moisture, weather, stain and graffiti resistant. The perfect choice for outdoor environments.

HDPE has many features including that it will not fade, rot, delaminate, splinter or crack and it is stain and graffiti resistant for easy cleaning. HDPE is high impact resistant so it is ideal for the playground and they are recyclable and no toxic.

We also have a fantastic range of picnic tables and benches. Our Bleabury and Robinson picnic tables and the Lakeside and Burneside bench ranges are made from recycled materials.

Most of the recycled materials used to produce the products are manufactured from post consumer waste (PCR); including HDPE milk and detergent bottles that could have otherwise gone into landfill sites. This PCR material is subject to various processing cycles which include a thorough cleaning and grinding before being remanufactured into the high quality materials used to make these products. Our bench and picnic table ranges as mentioned above are made from 569 – 1440 plastic milk bottles.

Our bench and picnic range requires no painting and are virtually maintenance free. They are made from high quality recycled plastic support frames and stainless steel fittings. The benches and picnic tables are UV stabilised for fade resistant outdoor use, they have a high impact resistant and are fully recyclable and non toxic. The picnic tables are umbrella ready.
