Fencing systems used for animal containment serve many purposes. They help protect animals from venturing into dangerous areas, keep predators and other unwanted creatures away from your animals and help confine your animals to designated areas. These fencing systems must be durable, sturdy and low-maintenance in order to contain, corral and protect your animals.
Benefits of HDPE Plastic Lumber
Recycled HDPE plastic lumber is a long-lasting building material that won’t rot, splinter and crack, and it is chew-resistant. Plastic lumber also includes deflection properties, making it more flexible and better able to absorb energy and impact from large animals. HDPE plastic lumber fencing systems can withstand extreme heat, cold and moisture without breaking down over time. It is an environmentally-friendly wood-alternative that doesn’t leach because it doesn’t require chemical-treatments and is inherently resistant to chemicals, salt, oils, fungus and insects. It secures, drills and cuts like traditional wood and has a limited 50-year warranty for long-term fencing solutions.
Why Traditional Building Materials Fall Short
Traditional wood is the most common building material that is used for animal containment fencing. While wood is dense and strong, it doesn’t necessarily perform the greatest for outdoor weather conditions. When animals crib and chew on fencing, if ingested, splinters can damage the animal’s digestive system. Wood can also harbor bacteria which can be life-threatening if ingested by animals when they chew on it. It can degrade over time from moisture, causing the need for repairs and replacement. Not to mention the maintenance time and cost to keep the wooden fencing system looking fresh and new. Instead of dealing with repairs, choose a long-term solution with plastic lumber.
