Anyone interested in manufacturing this with me

Around 25 years ago, long before the concerns that waste plastic would bring, I developed an overlap Garden Fence Panel and Post with a fixing spike made entirely out of Re-Cycled Coke Bottles. At the time it received a lot of interest from the local and national press, James Dyson and from the BBC (these are the only 2 clips I can find) 

Unfortunately I failed to raise the necessary capital to get the project off the ground and ended up losing my house.
Maybe its time to resurrect the project in view of the single use plastic plight the world is now facing.
At the time I could manufacture a plastic panel for not much more than a cheap wooden one with all the advantages of a longer life, no creosoting/painting and saving trees.
I believe it would be a very competitive product now due to the amount of raw material available.
I can be reached on or

Thanks for your time,
Kevin Wheatley


Hey, the manufacturing  is rather less interesting to me but the project definitely since it requires some machinery we are always interested to develop & build at low-cost.

If you’re around Catalonia, our doors are always open, send me private message for the details.

I started some designs to recycle difficult plastic via hydraulic presses and a heat module, far from any prototyping yet but I assume there is something by the end of the year. We’d happy to have a first customer for this since higher volumes isn’t exactly covered by PP.
