Going all (recyclable) plastic

Dramatic increases in prices and lead times for metals have proved a catalyst for product development for Marine Civils exhibitor Melba Swintex, specialists in temporary traffic management systems.

The latest products to be overhauled are the Thor and Hammer barrier systems which both implemented steel legs and rivets within their construction. Melba Swintex has developed its very own HDPE leg which provides the same high performance and strength as the original metal, but with additional safety in Barrier collisions

A new barrier foot has also been designed and engineered in-house and is also manufactured from HDPE at the Melba Swintex factory, providing the same high-quality performance as its metal counterpart.

Melba Swintex has made a solid commitment to the environment; all products from Melba Swintex are manufactured from recycled material, or contain recycled material in some form, with a company-wide ban on single use plastics. Cone Bases, Barrier Feet, Q-Signs, and Speed Ramps are just some products that are manufactured from recycled material.

Melba Swintex currently recycles over 90 tonnes of PVC itself per day.
