HousingWe can offer standard material options for housing construction such as MDF, wood composites and plywood, as well as unique circular options that use natural cellulose based materials together with reversible adhesives to enable separation and reuse.
Worktops & PanelsWe can provide vibrant handcrafted worktops & panels from a variety of recycled materials
Internal Walls & PartitionsFor a one storey-high internal walls or partitions, we can offer a product that is made from clean renewable materials, that provides sufficient freedom of design and finish and which can be reused or refurbished
Signage, Graphics & DisplayWe can customise appearance to your exact requirements, with options for the use of 100% recycled and recyclable materials, 2D finishes in laminate or print, as well as raised or flat cut lettering, logos or custom shapes to create a striking 3D effect. You send the design and we make it happen!
Tailored FinishWe can offer a great range of décor finishes to choose from – please see our colour swatches below
Custom MaterialsWe can provide a bespoke service to create new custom made circular materials from the waste you produce, providing you with your own unique sustainability story and driving further compliance from your customers.
Most housing is generally made from a wood composite such as particle board, medium density fibre (MDF) or plywood, which are then laminated with a plastic-based product to provide an easy-to-clean surface.
However, the use of toxic substances to bond all of these elements means that they cannot be separated after disposal and then reused, or easily recycled, unless using a specialised process.
Instead, we have the option to use natural cellulose based residual fibres together with a reversible adhesive, providing you with a product with healthy base materials that do not contain any volatile organic compounds.
This means that all of the materials used in our bespoke-designed recycling & reuse infrastructure can be separated and reused, once the housing is no longer required, allowing us to recover and repurpose for future projects.
We can also offer a number of veneer options that are made-from post-consumer and/or genuinely recyclable materials, whilst we can also custom design and manufacture cellulose-based custom panels to your specification.
In numerous discussions with consumers, we often hear that they do not have the required level of assurance, or are provided with sufficient tangible evidence, that a downstream recycling process actually exists after they perform the required action. The ability to quickly and easily communicate this message at the point of disposal is, therefore, fundamental to the success of any recycling system.
One simple way of achieving this is to visibly incorporate the materials you are looking to recover into the actual bespoke-designed recycling & reuse infrastructure. The consumer can then immediately associate material capture with subsequent reuse, resulting in a positive outcome for all stakeholders, as a result of compliant behaviour.
The use of post-consumer materials in well designed functional and attractive infrastructure also demonstrates that upcycled materials are as, if not more, valuable than those made from virgin materials. This not only drives further compliance from consumers, but also significantly increases the value of disposed material.
We have experience in designing and developing bespoke recycling processes to create a variety of new materials, including, but not limited to:
- Plastic, various polymer types & composites
- Fibre & fibre composites
- Organic material
Please note that there is a charge for the development of any process and/or product for which specific research and development is required.
Creating Custom Materials – The Process
Provide us with a brief of your requirements:
- Material(s) to be upcycled
- Source of material
- Proposed application
- Required dimensions and technical properties
- Estimated production volumes
We will assess your project and respond with a proposal based on:
- Technical feasibility
- Commercial feasibility
- Research & Development costs *
- Finished production costs
- Timescales **
3. Research & Development
We will create samples of the new material and test for both the proposed application and large-scale production (if required).
We will manufacture the new material and where required, incorporate it into your wider infrastructure requirements.
* Costs will vary substantially depending on the ability to replicate an existing process or develop a new process
** There is usually a lead time of 2-6 months for bespoke projects
Signage, Graphics & Display
Cellulose panels are also an ideal substrate for wide format printed signage, graphics and displays. Whilst offering greater strength, durability and structure, it often also results in lower costs for materials, logistics and installation.
We can partner with you, and your supply chain, to design and implement a bespoke-designed recycling & reuse infrastructure solution that ensures all printed material is not only made from 100% recycled materials, but is also 100% recyclable following use, via our closed loop system:
The digital era provides the ability to create an innovative, high quality and visually aesthetic interaction with consumers to drive behaviour change, as well as communicating your own sustainability credentials and achievements.
With our bespoke customisation service, we can provide both 2D finishes in laminate or print, as well as raised or flat cut lettering, logos or custom shapes to create a striking 3D effect. Prior to production, we can provide you with the following
- Technical drawings
- 2D & 3D visuals
- AR & VR visualisations
- 3D printed prototypes
Following sign off, all designs will be applied to, or printed onto, the chosen material and expertly finished, before being collated and assembled into your final product
Wide format printing applications:
- Point of sale
- Indoor signage
- Portable and modular displays
- Panel displays
- Wall graphics
Through our partner, Egger, we are able to offer a comprehensive range of décor finishes, which are which are available to view here.
Egger’s Eurodekor melamine faced MDF board is extremely durable, due to its high bending and edge strength which makes it ideal for use in the manufacture of bin furniture. It is also extremely suitable for mounting additional accessories, such as blue-roll and hand sanitiser dispensers, whilst the surface is very easy to maintain and clean.
We can also supply a range of flame-retardant decors suited to public and hospitality environments. These products are classified according to the European standard EN 13501-1 and meet the strict requirements for Euroclass B products.
Customised finishes are not included on standard models and are priced on application.
