EKOply Backing Board


EKOply Backing Boards are an alternative to plywood and intended for use in pairs with the Groundforce Vertishore system for use in stable, self supporting ground. The whole system can be man handled outside of the trench to provide a safe and quick method of support. 

As well as providing additional support, the use of EKOply is preferable to using other materials and has the following benefits: 

  • Made from recycled waste plastic and fully recyclable at end-of-life
  • Requires little or no maintenance
  • Longer lasting compared to timber and plywood
  • Rot and weather proof
  • Tough and durable
  • No maintenance costs
  • Non-toxic to animals
