Plastic Extrusion For Construction And Building Projects

The construction sector depends heavily on the plastics industry as PVC products make a major contribution to the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of building materials, as well as contributing to a more positive environmental impact of construction projects. Apart from the obvious products, such as soffits, wall cladding, guttering, pipework, cable sheathing and insulation, plastic extrusions in construction are used in everything from the concrete foundations to the final interior finishing.

D W Plastics’ well-equipped factory has a wide range of extrusion equipment which allows the manufacture of a great variety of bespoke plastic extrusions for the building & construction sector. We work closely with our customers in the design and production of their PVC building profiles.

Plastic extrusions are used for many different areas of application in the construction industry.
