TDP Recycled Plastic Profiles

The requirement was for a maintenance free fence that was strong and safe enough to withstand boisterous children, but also one that would blend into the landscape so colour became an important part of the brief.

After doing some research, the school chose to use TDP’s recycled profiles as these fitted the requirements and the green and brown profiles blended nicely into their area.

As the profiles are made from recycled plastic that would otherwise have gone to landfill the school is also helping the environment, and with out free poster and recycling story it explained to the children to encourage them to recycle plastic waste. For the children it shows that recycling can be give back fantastic and useful products.


We also supplied a number of benches and picnic tables in the same material to help revitalise the area.

As part of a grand school playing field refurbishment at Wirksworth Infant school the teachers wanted to create a quiet area for the children. To do this it was decided to fence off a small area at one end of the playing field.


In all 16m of fence was erected which we supplied in 1m pre-made panels along with recycled plastic posts that were cemented into the ground. Steven Maskery, the school grounds man, erected the fence and was very pleased with how easy it was to work with, plus there were no splinters or misshaped profiles or posts.
