Type Recycled plastic lumber
 
 
 

When choosing sustainable street furniture, All Black is a responsible alternative to hardwood. This recycled plastic product has many advantages, in terms of both sustainability and maintenance.

  • Ink and paint hardly adhere to the surface
  • Cold, heat and UV radiation have no impact on the beams
  • Complies with NEN 6065 fire class 3

It is extremely suitable for use in demanding environments such as playgrounds and coastal zones.

Manufacture

All Black is made of recycled plastic (PE and PP) from, for example, bottle caps, crates and agricultural plastics. Reusing these products helps not only reduce the enormous plastic waste stream but also cuts down on the need for transportation due to the local availability of these resources.

No chemicals are added to the raw material, only soot for the colouring, All Black has a very low carbon footprint and can itself be recycled.

Features and benefits

  • Durable - does not require maintenance
  • Will not splinter or warp
  • Material is black throughout - damage is therefore barely noticeable
  • A matt appearance and rough texture means it does not look like plastic
  • Minimum 50-year lifespan makes it more durable than wood

Applications

All Black is a standard feature in the Streetlife Collection, and all products within the Rough&Ready Range can be made with these black beams: landscaping elements from benches and bridges to tree planters and picnic sets. This offers the architect unique freedom to combine elements within a single, uniquely coherent collection.

Rough&Ready Range

The Rough&Ready Range owes its cohesion to the distinct, standardised R&R beam size of 7 x 15cm. The steel supports of the products can be delivered in galvanised, coated or corten steel. All Black beams, with their deep black finish, allow for the creation of beautiful contrasts, an aesthetic feature that underlines just how unique the material actually is.
