POLYboardwalk™ GRP Wood Effect Boardwalks


  A POLYdeck product

POLYboardwalk™ is a long life (life expectancy in excess of 100 years), composite GRP system consisting of a GRP substructure and non slip wood look planks. The planks are manufactured from structural GRP with a recycled bottle core and have an 8mm thick highly wear resistant gritted surface. The surface is very low maintenance unlike timber boardwalks which constantly provide a challenge to keep them non-slip and also are very prone to rotting. This product does not deform and deflect like 100% recycled plastic materials, has an integral strength and is indistinguishable from wood with different colour options available.

There are many benefits around the adoption of POLYboardwalk™ on right of way schemes and it has proven very useful for Section 108 planning approvals with housing developers as the local authorities preferred solution for boardwalks. 

Arboriculturalists recognise POLYboardwalk™ as a means of preventing damage to tree roots through soil compaction on footpaths through wooded areas. 

  • Highly aesthetic
  • Long life
