Whether you need bumpers for your go karts or playground equipment, we’ve got it all taken care of!
Lightweight robust plastic composites in the production of recreational and playground equipment replace steel, wood, and fibreboard. For use in a wide range of recreational products, plastic materials are lighter, more durable, more cost-efficient, and can be moulded and decorated.
The durability of performance plastics make them a perfect alternative to replace metals and woods that rust, warp and decay over time. Powder coating and paint chipping problems can be eliminated while providing an extensive range of colours. UV durability, cleaning and manufacturing convenience make plastics an excellent option for portable playground structures, bumper protection, and more.
At BCJ Plastic Products, we have a team of experienced master craftsmen who utilise a wide range of machinery and techniques to fulfil your requirements. Our capabilities include fabrication, CNC routering, thermoforming, infrared heating, vacuum forming, drape forming and edge finishing. We also have a design service which can work with a client’s design team to achieve the product desired.

Kart Bumper Protector
In the world of electric karting, where the action can get intense and collisions are part of every race, protecting the vehicle’s expensive OEM bumpers is crucial in optimising operational cost.
BCJ Plastic Products worked with our partner PowerPlay to create an innovative solution for bumper protection, specifically designed for their electric karts. Our solution aims to give racers the edge they need while ensuring the longevity of the kart’s bumpers.
Using lightweight yet durable materials which can withstand the rigours of the track, utilising advanced plastic materials and state-of-the-art fabrication techniques was all part of the solution for PowerPlays kart fleet.
There is a selection of plastics that BCJ Plastic Products can supply to create sports and recreational products. Here are some;
ABS has low toxicity and easy pigmentation which make it an ideal material to manufacture toys. Couple that with its high and low-temperature resistance and shock resistance and it’s easy to see why ABS is used for outdoor use.
HDPE offers many benefits for use within the leisure industry. It does not sustain bacterial growth and is easy to clean. It resists wear, is abrasion resistant making it durable. Nor will it corrode. It has a high impact strength, warm to the touch and is virtually unbreakable.
Polypropylene is widely used within the sports and leisure industry. It’s tough, has good fatigue, chemical and heat resistance.
