EKOply - recycled plastic plywood alternative
If you are looking for a supplier of EKOply then you have come to the right website.
Our EKOply recycled plastic plywood alternative product range is the only current sheet on market that is almost identical to Ecosheet in its structure, appearance & specification.
As well as being one of the most innovative new building materials to hit the UK market in recent years, it's also one of the most environmentally-friendly and economical.
Each EKOply sheet is manufactured from 100% waste plastic which typically ends up being land-filled or incinerated. Each sheet is engineered to perform as an alternative to imported plywood, or to virgin plastic panels, yet in turn are fully recyclable at end-of-life.

Where to buy EKOply
Charlie Hughes, senior project manager in Wynnstay comments: "EKOply is proving to be a successful product for us. The many applications EKOply has for our agricultural customers is proving to be the reason for its success. Farmers are increasingly looking for products to give longer service life to keep costs down, when comparing EKOply to plywood its lifespan makes it very cost effective, plus the benefits of being able to wash down and disinfect compared to wood which can harbour bacteria and disease makes EKOply an attractive product".

Site Hoardings - Bath Abbey
On this project EKOply is being used for construction hoarding around the perimeter of Bath Abbey. This renovation project is estimated to take 3 years and once complete the hoarding can be removed from the site and re-used on another project, because unlike traditional wooden hoardings EKOply will not deteriorate and rot.
How EKOply was used to replace extend the life of plywood sheeting.
On this project a customer purchased EKOply to replace existing plywood which had started to deteriorate and rot. The following image timeline shows how EKOply sheets are being used to replace the existing plywood. Starting in the corners, EKOply boards are placed over the existing plywood boards ensuring that they will never have to be replaced in the future.

EKOply was used to create this feature living wall.
EKOply sheets were used to provide a ventilation duct at a European manufacturing site dealing with harsh weather conditions. In winter the temperature is + 40oC inside and – 20oC outside during manufacturing and – 20oC inside and – 20oC outside when idle. Summer temperature is + 40oC inside and + 20oC outside during manufacturing and + 20oC inside and + 20oC outside when the site is idle.
MGA car enthusiasts
If the product was available in the 1950's I am sure MG would have it on their production line" EKOply main advantage over Wooden Ply: In the year 2018 I see no point in using a product that was invented in 1865 - that is not waterproof - in a situation where the main purpose is preventing water ingress into a car.
EKOply also has the main advantage of being a 'finished' product - no treatment needed - just cut and fit!
