The timeless Reposa planters are made of recyclable materials with a beneficially minimal CO2 footprint. The planters are available in two sizes and have specially designed inner pockets. The pockets are made to measure and are therefore very easy to place and use in the planters.

MATERIALS AND TREATMENT
Planter: corten steel
Corten steel is a special steel alloy. Its composition differs from that of regular steel. Corten steel products are supplied in rustless or limited rust versions. The corten steel oxidation process can take up to two years, depending on the location.
Natural vinegar or saltwater (max. 50 grams per litre) can be used to accelerate the oxidation process. It can be applied with a moist cloth or plant spray. Any rust stains on paving will fade slowly. Stains can also be removed using a rust stain removing agent.
Panels: pressed and impregnated bamboo, sustainability category 1
VelopA uses bamboo of the very highest quality, a material that offers many advantages. That’s because it is an environmentally-friendly product that benefits a healthy ecosystem. Bamboo grows very quickly, absorbs four times more CO2 during its lifetime than the trees used for tropical wood and it even gives out 35% more oxygen. It is also stronger than wood and retains its shape. And, like wood, it has a warm, natural look. Bamboo is durable and has a long lifespan, so it’s the sensible choice. In short, Bamboo is a perfectly viable alternative to sustainable FSC® certified hardwood.
Inner pocket: polypropylene
The polypropylene used to produce the inner bags in Reposa waste bins is high-quality (160 grams per m2), very strong and 100% recyclable. The material is water and air permeable and keeps sand and greenery together.
Volume: 500 L
Width: 900 mm
Depth: 900 mm
Height: 650 mm
The bottom has two openings in the centre for drainage. The inner pocket is also permeable.
Bamboo: VelopA's bamboo planks are oiled with bamboo oil as standard. We recommend cleaning the boards at least once a year with a tarnish remover and treating them with a water-based bamboo oil to prevent ageing and tarnishing.
The Reposa planter can only be placed on a solid surface. The planter stands on adjustable feet so it can be slightly adjusted to a sloped surface. Anchor bolts can be used for anchoring.
