Govawall® sustainable fence system
Network Rail carried out refurbishment of Llandudno rail station and extended the park and ride.
Part of the perimeter fence of the new park and ride section was backing onto a school, so the challenge was to find fencing that could provide the following requirements:
- Strong and durable material
- Good noise abatement qualities
- Requires minimal maintenance
- Robust enough to withstand strong coastal winds
- Sustainable development
Govawall® is a complete post and board fence system manufactured from Govaplast® - the leading brand of recycled plastic. It has solid tongue and groove boards and has gained a high rating certificate for noise abatement qualities.
It was felt by both Network Rail and the school that Govawall® would be the solution to all requirements on this project.
Darfen Fencing was the approved installer.
Govawall® will not rot, shrink or break, so will remain aesthetically pleasing for many, many years with no need to replace or maintain.
Recycled plastic requires no maintenance and offers a life span of approximately 40 years (WRAP statistics 2007 paper).
