We’ve talked before about how plastic extrusion is one of the most economical manufacturing options for plastic parts and products. It’s a highly efficient process that doesn’t generate a lot of waste and is also extremely versatile; plastics can be produced as rigid, semi-rigid or flexible, with a completely bespoke cross-section to suit the purpose. It’s no wonder that we come across plastic extrusions daily in office furniture profiles.
Extensive use is made of plastics in an office environment, because:
- Plastics are more lightweight than other furniture materials
- They’re highly durable and can last for a number of years without damage if treated with care
- Plastic parts are easy to produce, particularly through processes such as extrusion
Generally speaking, plastic extrusions have two main uses in office furniture profiles. They provide a protective function, helping to prevent wear and make furniture or other profiles last longer, or they help enhance aesthetics; plastics can easily be coloured to match the company branding, or colour schemes of the office, so it’s common for doors, office furniture and partitions to feature a plastic trim or shell.
