Enviromental benefits

At F-Board we believe that good ethics make great business sense. By using F-Board you are clearly exercising your social and environmental responsibility.

Currently millions of tons of plastic go to landfill or incineration each year in the UK. We’re making a dent in this by manufacturing our boards from 100% recycled plastic. And, at the end of their lifespan, we’ll buy them back and recycle them into new boards*. So, it’s a sustainable loop: unlike the life of most wooden boards.

F-Board not only makes good business sense, it’s ethically sound too.

How it works

F-Board is a safe, trip-free scaffold platform system.

The ends of the boards are connected to each other by a simple retainer which ties down to the ledgers, using bungees or zip ties. Retainers can also join boards together along their full length – ideal for specialist work.

Testimonials & Gallery

“My experience and findings with the FBoards provided are a safe and level working platform and completely fulfilled the requirements of the scaffolding deck. I therefore would have no hesitation in recommending the use of FBoard for any scaffold requirements.”
Brendon Schooling, Site Manager

Also look at the FSC Scheme; non-timber boards could be advantageous for those seeking full FSC Certification.”
Chris Kennedy, Contruction Manager, Lend Lease

“Various trades that have worked on this product have all found it equally as good as a wooden board, with the added benefits of reducing trip hazards.”
Stuart Beesley, Site Manager, Mi-Space

“Packham Engineering carries out work within the food industry and as such it is a requirement that we use composite scaffold boards. We have used FBoards recently on projects within the food industry and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other companies working within this market.”
Roger Packham, Packham Engineering

“Initially we used them within the food industry which has been very successful and will now be used as our preferred scaffold board for any food industry works we undertake. We have also used the FBoards on general building works whereupon we have found them to be consistent, and with the added benefit of the Board Retaining System in place, this has proved advantageous in exposed weather conditions and reduced trades moving boards. FBoards are welcomed improvement to the scaffolding industry.”
Leigh Cornick, Clayson Scaffolding Ltd.

“If anybody needs plastic boards go to F-Board. Half the price, much better and they are a decent company to deal with. You can use them with wooden board clips instead of the special ones for the plastic boards. We have had 200 already and the lads love them.”
Russ, Rutland Scaffolding
