longer use 150x150

Steel and aluminium products are discarded due to wear, breakage or obsolescence of function or style, but often the definition of end of life is subjective and opportunities exist to carry on using the product with additional upgrades or maintenance. Additionally, during the lifetime of the products there are periods when they are not fully utilised.

Can we use products more effectively?
