Over 150 million square metres of DuPont™ Plantex® landscape fabric have now been laid worldwide, an impressive global milestone which means it has eradicated around 120 billion weeds*, according to UK distributor TDP Ltd. The company has been the leading supplier of Plantex® in the UK for 20 years and cites the product’s flexibility and sustainability as key factors behind its ongoing success.
Rob Barlow, managing director of TDP commented, “Plantex® is the original weed control fabric and remains the first choice of professional landscapers and builders. It is a high quality fabric with a long life span, making it the sustainable choice for a range of building projects.
“Its flexibility allows it to be used as a non-chemical barrier for weeds in soft landscape schemes, but it also has the tensile strength to be used in hard landscaping applications such as paths and patios. So instead of requiring two products to cover these applications, Plantex’s flexibility is a real benefit because it means that merchants only need to stock one product and consumers don’t need to worry about choosing the wrong grade of material for their project.”
Reinforcing its expertise in sustainability, TDP has also just launched a new range of street furniture and landscaping materials for decking, fencing and walkways which is made from recycled materials.
This is a rapidly growing market and TDP’s expertise in products and marketing will help merchants maximise their opportunities in this profitable sector.
All the products are manufactured from UK generated plastic waste that would otherwise be destined for landfill and are also 100% recyclable in their own right.
The new Street Furniture range includes posts and rails, benches, seats and picnic tables, planters and litter bins in a variety of sizes. Already used by major organisations in both the private and public sector, this sustainable range of products offers significant benefits compared to the use of traditional materials, being strong and durable, impact resistant and rot proof.
This new range also features landscaping products including decking, boardwalks, porous paving, fencing and many others that will enhance any park, garden, town centre, school, leisure or play complex.
Rob Barlow said
“Recycled plastic technology has advanced enormously and now offers a very attractive proposition. This new range not only looks and feels great, it will enhance any location and last for many years without the need for costly maintenance or replacement.”
Merchants will benefit from TDP’s extensive stockist support package which includes point of sale, technical back up and marketing.
The products are available from builders’ merchants nationwide.
