Using recycled plastic offered several key advantages over wooden decking for the centre. Firstly the decking is maintenance free – the decking boards will not rot or degrade, and do not need the periodic treatment associated with wooden decking.
The decking boards were fixed to standard recycled plastic profiles used as bearers at 600mm centres. 5mm gaps were left between decking boards to allow for water run-off. Decorative extras were added by the team, who cut, plained and sanded the recycled plastic profiles. The balustrades were made from edging boards with 100 x 100 posts used to support the roof section. The great strength of the profiles, a result of the recycled plastic mix and the intrusion moulding process, makes it fit for this purpose.
