Recycled Building Materials
Cavalok was the first in its field to offer 100% post-consumer recycled cavity closers – and we continue to lead the way in recycled building materials
Keen to adopt leading environmental best practice, we conducted extensive research and development into the use of post-consumer PVC-U, and were able to secure a reliable source of this waste material.
Cavalok is a brand with environmental principles. The company pioneered the use of recycled post-consumer PVC-U waste and, today, all of our cavity closers are manufactured from this sustainable material.
Using a waste material to produce an energy saving product makes Cavalok cavity closers the ideal sustainable product.
What is post-consumer PVC-U?
Post-consumer PVC-U is derived from old window and door frames that have been removed from buildings. The components of the window are separated for recycling. The PVC-U is granulated, cleaned, reprocessed and extruded by Cavalok to create new cavity closers and other recycled building materials.
A truly sustainable solution
It means that all Cavalok products are manufactured from material that would otherwise end up in landfill sites. PVC-U can withstand repeated recycling, enabling it to deliver hundreds of years of service through re-use.
