Mother Nature vs. Plastic Lumber

By November 1, 2019 No Comments

Nothing destroys wooden structures like ports, piles, boardwalks, docks, outdoor furniture and fencing like Mother Nature. Fortunately, there’s a champion that can combat Mother Nature – even at her worst. Plastic Lumber by Bedford Technology saves the day every time, here’s why:

Structural Integrity:

Our structural plastic lumber utilizes fiberglass strands to increase rigidity. This added rigidity creates a product that is suited for many structural applications where a wider span, dimensional stability, increased flexural strength, or higher rigidity is required. Due to the increased strength and its resistance to environmental elements, structural recycled HDPE plastic lumber is well suited to combat the beast that is Mother Nature; even through wind, rain, snow, extreme heat, extreme cold and more!

Environmental Elements:

Our plastic lumber is impervious to environmental elements such as moisture, bacteria, mold, insects and marine borers. These environmental elements run rampant on traditional building materials like wood because it is not moisture resistant and is fibrous allowing them to permeate the surface. Mold and mildew thrive in damp and wet environments, they fester in wood and cause it to rot and decay, causing pricey repairs and replacements. Plastic lumber avoids that hassle, truly making it a low-maintenance product.

Environmentally Friendly

Our boards don’t need to be treated like wood does. Therefore, our products won’t leach chemicals into the environment. Also, our plastic lumber uses recycled HDPE plastic, like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles, saving millions of pounds of plastic from entering landfills and sparing trees in the process. #BeBedfordGreen

As you can see, plastic lumber wins in the battle against mother nature.  With four product lines to pick from to suit your specific project needs and green building requirements, choosing structural recycled plastic lumber by Bedford Technology has never been easier!
