Permadoor Reinforces its Green Credentials
Published: 30th April 2008
Specialist composite door manufacturer Permadoor has launched its new greener product range which uses an innovative system designed to bring old post-consumer waste back into use.
Manufactured from 100 per cent waste PVC-U, recycled composite material (RCM) is the only approved product of its kind in the government-backed Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) Construction Product Guide. By replacing steel or aluminium reinforcements in the door manufacturing process, the new RCM reinforcement fully closes the loop on the recycling system.
Adrian Wyatt, sales director, Permadoor, said: “Permadoor is committed to supporting the social housing sector deliver not only warmer and more secure but more sustainable homes as well.
“With the introduction of RCM, Permadoor is addressing its environmental responsibilities by bringing back old post-consumer products into use that would otherwise have gone to landfill.” This facility is delivered through Permadoor’s sister company, Dekura, which is uniquely placed to recycle not only factory off-cuts but also old post-consumer windows and doors into a new generation of advanced and durable PVC-U products.
Adrian added: “As part of our next generation of advanced products we are delivering improved-performance doors that are making homes warmer and more energy-efficient.
“And by intercepting what could amount to thousands of tonnes of waste PVC-U material, Permadoor is also assisting RSLs in meeting new strict ‘green’ government targets.” As specialists in the supply of low-maintenance exterior entrance doors to the social housing market, Permadoor has more than 18 years of sector experience, bringing unparalleled support and expertise to social housing refurbishment and new build projects. Permadoor continues to expand its comprehensive range of low-maintenance, durable and sustainable products which can deliver life time savings to social housing projects.
