What are the special features of RECYFIX?
The raw material for RECYFIX channels comes from recycled goods used in everyday life, such as packaging, freezer bags and disposable plastic bottles. In this way, valuable resources such as crude oil are conserved and the amount of waste is reduced for the benefit of the environment. RECYFIX channels are also PVC-free and can be fully recycled following lifetime use.
The use of recycled composite in the production of RECYFIX linear drainage systems has achieved the prestigious Blue Angel eco-label, a recognised award in Germany for resource-saving use of materials. Products carrying the Blue Angel label are certified as being environmentally friendly and reliably considered to help reduce pollution.
Capable of coping with different environmental influences, the polypropylene drainage channel retains its appearance even when different environmental influences are present (e.g. frost, de-icing salts, UV light and chemicals). They are 100% corrosion-free and can provide permanent reliable surface drainage.
All channels can easily be manoeuvred, transported and installed without any heavy lifting machinery. They comply with single-man-lift which makes for efficient and cost-effective handling on-site.
RECYFIX has exceptional strength and durability as it can withstand dynamic forces and high traffic loads up to an F 900 load class.
