Sourcing locally manufactured products dramatically improves the carbon footprint of any construction project, this is then compounded when factoring in the use of recycled materials.
Allproof pride themselves on supplying premium products to the plumbing and drainage industry. When designing, planning and developing products Allproof will explore opportunities to use responsible processes and materials. Allproof’s Domestic channel and pits are moulded at their factory on the North Shore of Auckland using locally sourced (where possible) recycled Polypropylene (PP) material. This plastic is ideal for this product range and is also used in various other products in the Allproof catalogue because of its responsible sourcing and physical characteristics. PP is tough with good impact resistance, chemically resistant and when combined with UV additive it can withstand all of New Zealand’s conditions.
Allproof are undertaking various other initiatives to reduce the impact of product manufacturing on New Zealand’s environment and do their part for sustainability. These initiatives include removing heavy metals from wastewater through an approved filtration system and internal recycling of products that don’t pass a rigorous Quality Assurance process (re-grinding of plastic injection moulded products). Allproof is also BEP (Best Environmental Practice) certified for their PVC manufacturing as per AS/NZS 1260:2017.
