Pic­nic tables, benches, and so much more made from tough re­cy­cled plas­tic!

Fu­sion Marine’s out­door fur­ni­ture range made from re­cy­cled plas­tic of­fers a much longer last­ing yet en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly al­ter­na­tive to wood.

The Bar­cal­dine based com­pany is per­haps bet­ter known as a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of poly­eth­yl­ene equip­ment for the aqua­cul­ture industry, but in re­cent years it has ex­panded this plas­tics’ ex­per­tise to cover a range of out­door leisure prod­ucts that is sup­plied by its sub­sidiary, Fu­sion Re­cy­cled Plas­tic Prod­ucts.

This in­cludes pic­nic tables and benches, as well as walk­ways, fences, bridges, way-mark­ing posts and other re­lated prod­ucts. All th­ese items are ideal for car­a­van and hol­i­day parks, na­ture re­serves, town cen­tres, ur­ban ar­eas, vis­i­tor cen­tres and many other recre­ational uses. Me­mo­rial benches are also sup­plied – and the com­pany even sup­plies deck­ing made from re­cy­cled plas­tic!

The tables and benches, and other prod­ucts are much tougher than wood and are avail­able in colours that blend in nat­u­rally with the en­vi­ron­ment.

Re­cent cus­tomers in­cluded the Kil­bowie Res­i­den­tial Out­door Cen­tre near Oban where Fu­sion Marine sup­plied eight pic­nic tables. Th­ese pic­nic tables were the ‘Gana­van’ model and are coloured dark brown, pro­vid­ing a sub­tle and nat­u­ral ap­pear­ance. Fu­sion Re­cy­cled Plas­tic Prod­ucts also sup­plied The Rock­field Cen­tre in Oban with benches and pic­nic tables form­ing a great sit­ting out area. The ad­van­tages of re­cy­cled plas­tic for such out­door prod­ucts in­clude:

• Tough and durable

• De­cay re­sis­tant

• Low main­te­nance

• En­vi­ron­men­tally friendly

• Slip-re­sis­tant sur­faces

• Will not crack or split

• Non-toxic and in­ert

• Weather re­sis­tant

• Im­per­vi­ous to wa­ter

• Re­sis­tant to mi­cro-or­gan­isms

• Bet­ter chem­i­cal re­sis­tance

• Will not leach chem­i­cals into the soil.

Fu­sion Marine also man­u­fac­tures marine pon­toons that pro­vide con­ve­nient ac­cess for small craft. Th­ese pon­toons are in­cred­i­bly ver­sa­tile as they can be sited on tidal shores, pro­vid­ing con­ve­nient marine ac­cess.

Th­ese pon­toons are ideal for a wide va­ri­ety of busi­ness and leisure ap­pli­ca­tions and have the ca­pa­bil­ity to trans­form a shore lo­ca­tion. Typ­i­cal uses in­clude: ho­tels look­ing to at­tract leisure craft; moor­ing associations and yacht clubs; com­mu­nity associations; out­door ac­tiv­ity cen­tres; coun­try es­tates; angling and leisure boat op­er­a­tors; and pri­vate home­own­ers in wa­ter­side lo­ca­tions.

A num­ber of com­mu­ni­ties around Ar­gyll have al­ready in­stalled th­ese pon­toons and are reap­ing the ben­e­fits. Th­ese in­clude the Stra­chur Bay Moor­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, Lochgoil Wa­ter­sports Club, Craig­nish Boat Club and sev­eral oth­ers.
