Pointed post BROWN 70mm x 70mm x 1.5m

It would be a pleasure to give you feed back. The whole transaction was a pleasure from start to finish. I spoke to a gentleman prior to ordering and he was exemplary in his handling of my enquiry. The original delivery was as smooth and problem-free as I would wish. Even your transport contractor acted over and above my usual experience of truck drivers. The material has worked well and I have had several compliments about the sign system of which your posts are a part. So much so that I ordered some more posts for collection and, apart from getting a bit lost, that went well too. It is refreshing to be able to give SUCH positive feed-back.

Recycled plastic plank Brown 25mm x 150mm x 3m

I’m very pleased with the planks I received.  I used them to make something similar to a raised bed, but actually for our dogs to dig in, and wanted something that was safe and non treated should they decide to chew on it. I found it much easier to work with than wood of a similar size and found it simple to cut with a circular mitre saw and easy to drill.

Square Ended Plank BLACK 25mm x 100mm x 3m

I’m giving a good feedback, great material and service. I have used the plastic in an unconventional manner. I used it as a fascia board on my own home extension. Couldn’t get a black plastic fascia board in the thickness required and didn’t want painted wood etc.

Square Ended Plank Brown 25mm x 100mm x 3m

The planks were perfect – they were used as edging for laying a new artificial lawn. As they were being laid directly into the ground and back-filled with sand they were the perfect choice to guarantee no rot. Great service, thanks again.

Recycled plastic plank Brown 50mm x 100mm x 3m

I found the Recycled Plastic Planks surprisingly easy to use, once I have got over the fact that they are about 3 times heavier than the same size of timber! I used them to replace some rotting timbers in a pergola and as you can see from the attached ‘photos, they have worked really well and have blended in perfectly. When I was cutting them with a chop saw or portable circular saw, I had no problems. However, when I used a jig saw, for some slots that needed cutting, I had to be very careful with the speed, so that it was fast enough to cut, but not so fast that the planks melted from the friction.

Brown 18mm x 67mm x 3m Narrow Flexible Edging Plank

The edgings were great, we had to create some very tight bends and they worked really well, so much better than timber edging. The small size was also useful as we were creating paths among and around trees so we had to try not to disturb any roots and they allowed this.We’ve used you edgings a few times and they have always performed very well and look good too.

Curb planks

Quite a while ago I ordered some “Curb Planks” from you to build raised beds in my garden – I did say at the time I’d try to send some picture over when finished, so now we’ve got them planted up, here they are. The beds are 2.5mx1.25m and made up of a “curb plank” on top a 4×2 with 2” square posts in the corners held together with 10mm carriage bolts.

Product:

Recycled plastic otter holt kit

I was very happy with the service I received from FILCRIS and the otter holts are excellent. I wasn’t expecting them to be already assembled so this was a pleasant surprise when they were delivered (looking back at the website it clearly states that they are so I must have missed that bit!). They are lighter than anticipated and sturdy enough to withstand the elements and the brash piles on top of them. I am pleased to say that both holts are now installed on separate nature reserves and already have evidence of otter activity. The only slight negative comment I would make relates to the cost of the structure although I appreciate recycled plastic composite material isn’t cheap. Would just have liked to buy more for my money! Overall, very pleased.

Brown 18mm x 67mm x 3m Narrow Flexible Edging Plank

The delivery of my order was completed within the agreed time slot and the driver was very helpful. So far I have installed some 90 meters of edging. (See attacked images) The material is consistent, attractive, strong and flexible.  It has proved very quick and easy to work with. It cuts well with both hand and electric saws. The only other tools needed were garden line, club hammer and battery drill with drill bits, countersink bit and screw-driving bit. When my raised beds need the wooden edging replaced I will not hesitate to use this material. Thank you for your reliable and efficient service.

Colin, Thetford
