Entrance Installation

PDC Scaffolding supplied scaffolding for the front entrance feature at Grand Designs Live.

Embracing the shows eco-ethos the entrance installation materials were carefully selected to ensure they are from a recycled source.

The four hero products represent the sections of the show, each product is made from recycled plastic, and are recyclable after they have outlasted their functional use.

Product: Plastic Lumber

Manticore Lumber is a highly versatile wood alternative, made from 100% recycled plastic using plastic waste that is unusable in conventional recycling processes. This completely maintenance free material can be worked like wood and has the added benefit of saving you over the years having to replace and treat old timber. By taking unrecyclable plastic waste and turning it into a long-life product, we are diverting this material from landfill and giving a second life to materials which are routinely thrown away.
