Our ambition for a sustainable future, discover more on our environmental footprint.
At Window Widgets we are committed to doing our part for the environment, we minimise our waste and run an extensive recycling programme. It makes both commercial and ethical sense to recycle and use less energy. We take great pride in applying a common sense approach to this topic.
When you break down each category there are subsections of recycling. For instance, in the case of card, we reuse boxes where we can. Where we cannot, we pass it through a machine which turns it into a product suitable for us to reuse as layers between PVC and stillages. Where this isn’t possible, it gets crushed into bundles and sold for recycling.
Most of our injection moulding and extrusion machines are highly energy efficient, saving energy by storing electricity via inverters. This means we are able to save up to 80% of energy usage in some cases. Where we can we make products from recycled material.
Our Werbar for example is made from 100% recycled windows and doors and our corner protectors come from recycled Polypropylene. We also rechip and reuse our mould sprues in-house.
We are continually investigating ways to reduce our environmental impact.
Our work will never be finished!
