Cycle lane separator Zebra

Curro Claret para/for Zicla

Description Technical file

This cycle lane separator features a discreet yet sufficiently visible design that ensures that its presence is perceived by motorists, thus keeping them from invading the lane. It includes six irregular reflecting strips so that, once installed, they generate an intermittent reflecting grid.
The piece is made from 100% recycled plastic from recovering the copper and aluminium in electrical wiring. This recycled material is the result of a complex treatment that makes it suitable for outdoor use. In addition the piece is 100% recyclable, as it can be reused and new pieces injected at the end of its useful life.
The reality is that the material that coats electrical wires ended up in landfill. The Zicla company, specialised in recycled materials, together with the designer Curro Claret, developed this project thinking that this type of material could be given a second life. This produced the 100% recycled and recyclable cycle lane separator, as it reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfill sites while promoting the use of the bicycle in urban environments. By using recycled plastic instead of new material, each piece saves 5.7 kg of CO2, the equivalent of driving 31 kilometres in a conventional automobile.
