Made responsibly to make a difference
Our recycled fabric ducts look and perform in an identical way to our standard range of fabric ducting – and they don’t cost much more, either. The only difference is that the polyester they are made from has come from melting down recycled plastic water bottles.
The water bottles are collected from the usual recycling points. The bottles are then chopped into plastic chips and melted before being filtered to extract impurities from the contents, printing or other contaminants. The clean polyester material is then spun into fibres for us to use for fabric ducting in exactly the same way as fibres made from virgin polyester.
This makes the material in our recycled fabric ducting 100% post-consumer recycled material. We have used materials that have previously been discarded and could have headed for landfill or found themselves in the world’s oceans.Get A Quotation Today
Sustainable – Genuinely!
By reusing a previously manufactured product, we are not having to use new precious hydrocarbons to make the polyester material. We also reduce the energy consumption required to manufacture the fibres by 66% whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions by over 34% and reducing water consumption by nearly 50%.
We know that we save 13 x 500ml plastic bottles for every m² of material we use. That means a 10-metre long, 630mm diameter fabric duct would save over 257 plastic water bottles. We’ll tell you how many bottles you could save when we send you your quotation.
Once the fabric duct has finished its useful life, there is no reason why it can’t be chopped up and recycled again. It need never be wasted creating a virtuous circle of supply, recycling and reuse.
Our recycled fabric ducting has the same qualities as the standard products. It is:
- Flame retardant
- Non fibre shedding cleanroom compatible
- Available in a range of 9 stock colours
- 10-year warranty
