Recycled Plastic Boards
Recycled Plastic Sheet or Board comes in several varieties - HDPE sheet both as a multicoloured sandwich and solid colours, Stokbord, Recycled Mixed Plastic Sheet (a combination of HDPE and LDPE) and Stormboard. Some are 100% recycled waste plastic sheets in the UK, but the brighter colours are more difficult to achieve in this country because we do not sort plastic as well as in the USA or even as well as the rest of Europe. Nevertheless, our HDPE multicoloured sheets are up to 80% recycled plastic material. The lower carbon footprint of recycled plastic makes our products very green, and they can of course be recycled again.
Our coloured boards have very high UV protection, and we use them for outdoor play equipment and accessories, as well as for signage. Stokbord and Mixed Plastic Sheet is great for equestrian applications or for animal shelters, agricultural purposes and general building use. Stormboard is great for advertising as it is smooth and takes acrylic print very well and can be re-sited and used repeatedly both for site building hoarding or indoors for advertising. All our recycled plastic is non-toxic and neither animals nor insects will eat it. Recycled plastic requires no treatments or preservatives and will last for decades, making whole life costs considerably less than wood or even concrete. Check out our recycled plastic sheet prices. This independent WRAP study shows significant whole life cost savings compared to wood.

The Durability and Sustainability of Kedel Products
At Kedel, we pride ourselves in providing the best products at the best price. Our plastic wood sheeting products are extruded from either recycled polystyrene, or recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE).
These are maintenance free, sustainable, and very environmentally friendly materials. Kedel s help reduce the mountains of waste thrown away daily in the UK - packing materials, cups, milk bottle containers, etc.
Only 7% of the plastic produced each year is currently recycled, with polystyrene waste taking up about 30% of landfill space. No one currently knows how long polystyrene takes to degrade, except to say that it takes a very long time. Recycling it as high quality plastic wood not only makes it useful again, but prevents vast amounts of waste ending up in expensive, increasingly scarce landfill sites. Recycled plastic products like these sheets have such a wide variety of applications - way better than ending up in the ocean.
Due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions we are experiencing unusually high volumes of orders, plus Royal Mail and hauliers report up to 5 times more packages than normal. Delivery times given are therefore our best estimates. We also regret that customer collections from our Burnley unit are by appointment only.
