Bedford Technology’s Plastic Lumber used in Park & Rec Industry (Boardwalks)

Bedford Technology’s recycled plastic lumber products are used frequently in the Parks & Recreation departments across the country. This blog explores commercial boardwalks and larger walkway projects within the parks industry.

The parks and recreation industry calls for strong, durable plastic lumber products that will last and take a beating, but be easy to clean. They also need lumber products resistant to graffiti, weather and insects, withstand rot and decay, and are splinter free.  We have seen many instances where our plastic lumber products are replacing contemporary wood in boardwalks. Boardwalks are a great application where plastic lumber can be used as an alternative to wood. Plastic lumber is weather resistant and is proven to hold up to heavy daily use. Bedford Technology proudly supplies a “green” solution in the form of recycled plastic lumber to parks all across the U.S. for use in a variety of applications. Plastic lumber products are available in both SELECTFORCE® (non-structrual applications) and FIBERFORCE® (structural applications).

Our SELECTFORCE® and FIBERFORCE® Hard Tool products have a foamed core end-cut appearance, textured surface finish and comes in a variety of colors, making it more useful in commercial playground equipment, park and recreation applications, signage, boardwalks, decks, piers, parking curbs, landscaping boards and any harsh weather environment application. SELECTFORCE® and FIBERFORCE® Hard Tool Plastic Lumber looks great and is long lasting and resistant to: rotting, splintering, water damage, termites (pests), etc.  SELECTFORCE® and FIBERFORCE® plastic lumber also doesn’t require painting and are very low maintenance (compared with traditional wood.)  SELECTFORCE® and FIBERFORCE® Hard Tool products are a high quality, carpenter friendly product that can be drilled, sawn, cut, routed and worked just as wood lumber.

Bedford Technology’s SELECTFORCE® and FIBERFORCE® recycled HDPE plastic lumber serves as a replacement to traditional parts made from injection molding, rotational molding, vacuum forming, aluminum extrusion, lumber profiles and wood profiles. Bedford Technology can also design a plastic lumber product to suit your specific application, including custom molded products (ie: pipe supports, bench frame shapes, lids).
