BuildTuff launches TuffSlab equipment bases

BuildTuff has long produced polymer products for the construction trade. Now the company has developed a new take on an accepted method of AC mini-split installations.

“Other polymer bases are either imported, made from virgin material or not made in consultation with the OEMs and tradespeople to make it as efficient, durable and environmentally friendly as possible,” says BuildTuff general manager Alan Brady.

“We have spent 12 months designing, testing and working with OEMs to develop the best product possible. All feedback from the trade and OEMs was built into the final design.”

The TuffSlab Eco + is manufactured solely from post-industrial waste pipes, recycled in Australia at BuildTuff’s sister company Resitech – now Australia’s largest polymer recycling plant.

According to BuildTuff, the black matte finish removes the need for additional dyes, chemicals, powders, and washing.

Additional features include low visibility, added fastening points, sloped water run-off channels, and ventilation points. The company has also launched TuffMount Eco+ for smaller units.
