Sleek, uber-modern, and yet also highly functional, DELTA CUSTOM planters are made from a proprietary, patent-protected form of Fibre Reinforced Cement [FRC] branded 'Eterplan'.
Eterplan is manufactured as a densely-compressed FRC board for building applications such as walls, ceilings and sub-roof constructions, and the material has significant benefits:
- An exceptional strength-to-weight ratio – planters are strong, yet easily handled
- Suitable for all environments, from public realm to weight-restricted interiors
- Guaranteed frostproof, and UV stable
- Resistant to mould, fungus, termites and other vermin
- Certified Class A2-s1,d0 fire retardant
- Breathable yet completely watertight
- Can be drilled and modified on-site with standard tools
Eterplan is manufactured in sheets of Length 2840mm x Width 1200mm, and this limits the maximum dimension of any face of the planter. For example, a square tree planter of L 2000 x W 2000 x H 1200mm can be manufactured; but a square tree planter of L 2000 x W 2000 x H 1500mm cannot be manufactured.
DELTA CUSTOM is available in the 13 standard RAL colours listed below. (Note: Planters can also be custom-coloured to any other RAL reference, or physical colour sample, but a surcharge will apply).
