RSPB Rainham Marshes

What We Did

Creating Marsh Resistant Boardwalks

Using our highly durable, weather resistant, elegant material, Smartawood™, we provided recycled plastic boardwalks for RSPB Rainham Marsh – over 500 metres of it! Our client needed a material that was rot resistant and likely to last indefinitely. The surface had a low-slip risk which is perfect for this substantial project.

Several years on and the boardwalk is as cosmetically attractive as the day it was first installed. RSPB Rainham Marsh are now a regular customer, returning for more Smartawood™ products whenever there is demand and budget.

Really impressed

We were particularly impressed with Plastecowood’s offering of suitable products made from waste plastic that would otherwise be going to landfills. This chimed with our own environmental values. The product itself was extremely competitively priced and the cosmetic finish is attractive and of high quality and its timber-like finish blends well with our existing installations. We are really impressed with the non-slip quality of the product which is obviously important on a boardwalk which is used by a wide range of people including the disabled, the young and the elderly and is open to the elements in a very unsheltered environment. The product has been relatively easy to use and install, especially given the nature and robustness of the product and the raw material from which it is made. All in all, we are very happy to recommend Plastecowood’s Smartawood product.

We are also very pleased with the service we have received from Plastecowood who have offered constant communication and support during their manufacture and our installation of the product and have been transparent and ethical.
