Structural boards made from recycled Igus energy chains

Structural boards made from recycled Igus energy chains

The Igus ‘chainge’ program has officially begun in the UK. Igus energy chains are now been recycled in a circular way, allowing them to be reused in the company’s own innovation display stands. Working in collaboration with recycling partner MyGroup in Hull, old energy chains were remanufactured into storm boards – versatile structural recycled plastic boards.

Storm boards are used in a variety of applications; from furniture and shop fittings to replacing timber in various constructions. Seeing the potential, Igus decided to reduce its carbon footprint and use them in its display stands. These display stands are available for any Igus customers completely free of charge They are delivered at the customer’s premises, fully stocked with a range of specifically tailored Igus products.

In the past the panels and shelves were made from energy intensive aluminium but now Igus is replacing these with its storm board panels, containing the recycled energy chains.
