What is Recycled Polycolour?
Recycled Polycolour is the latest material to be used in the construction of our notice boards.
It is manufactured from 100% PET plastic, which depending on the colour of the finished material, contains up to 90% post-consumer material, plastic bottles in the main!
The Polycolour FR sheets need to be stored horizontally and kept as clean as possible during storage and manufacture and must be stored indoors in a dry cool, well ventilated area and avoid exposure to heat 65°C or greater.
Before cutting we inspect the whole sheet for any defects, damage or soiling, we always wear clean gloves when handling the sheets to offer the best finish possible for our customers. The surface texture is very similar to felt and measures 9mm in thickness, messages may be attached using pins. It is flame retardant and has a 0.8 noise reduction rating making it perfect for schools, hospitals and offices.
This material is the best choice for those wanting to be environmentally conscious whilst still needing a notice board!
Our Polycolour notice boards can be mounted on walls and hung from ceilings using standard fixings, adhesive tapes or hook and loop. The acoustic rating also allows the boards to be used as noise reduction screens and at the end of their life they can be recycled in your PET waste stream.
The class B fire rating makes them suitable for schools, offices and public buildings, as explained below.
European Standards Class B (Highest Rating)
