Fibergrate Solves Plastic Pollution Problem For A Leading Supermarket

Litter is an environmental and ecological nightmare. Over time our rubbish breaks down into fragments of plastic that are washed into our water courses, poisoning wildlife and choking the ecosystem. An estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans annually, a high percentage of which is transported by main rivers out to sea.

The Solution

With a strict design brief stating we had to adapt pre-existing structures, Fibregrate partner, OnSite were commissioned to design a barrier system that would upgrade the current fencing to become 100% more effective in stopping litter and waste from leaving the site. OnSite achieved this by installing 21 12ft green glass reinforced plastic panels onto the front of the existing fencing structure. These panels have a minimum 25 year lifespan and are UV & impact resistant. This means they are maintenance free, never need to be painted and will add strength to existing road side structure. Bespoke anti-tamper fixings were designed to secure the panels in place and 75m of fencing was erected during the course of one day.
