Awakening people to the amount of plastic in our seas, our limited edition ‘Ocean’ material celebrates marine beauty.
By collecting and recycling waste plastic, we can preserve the natural world whilst also creating something lasting and beautiful for ourselves.
Every Ocean panel is unique and colours and patterns may vary from sheet to sheet. If you strictly need to minimise colour variation, discuss your needs with us prior to order to make sure all your material comes from the same batch.
We try very hard to make our sheets as blemish-free as we can, but they are not perfect; for example they may have dimples and minor marks which are outside our control. Please call us to discuss this if it could be a problem.
The listed panel thicknesses are nominal. Thermal expansion of some sheets can be 2mm per meter over a 10 degree (Celcius) range.
200x100cm, though often the panel will arrive slightly larger with unfinished edges (approx 209x109cm).
5mm, 12mm, 20mm
