Outdoor furniture manufacturers understand that these projects come with very high expectations; high-quality materials, durability, aesthetics and comfort. Traditionally, high-quality materials refer to different types of hardwoods. Teak, cedar and acacia are common types of wood used for outdoor and patio furniture due to their density. However, using high-quality wood can cost a bit more and require regular maintenance to hold up over long periods of time. Maintenance routines include staining and painting, chemical treatment and repairing and replacing rotted boards.
Another expectation that comes with outdoor furniture is the ability to hold up against harsh weather conditions like rain, snow, extreme heat and cold and strong winds. Outdoor furniture oftentimes is kept outside year-round, so standing up to these elements is extremely important. Traditional wood breaks down over time, and when exposed to moisture, can rot, mold and break down.
There is an alternative: recycled plastic lumber. Recycled HDPE plastic lumber is a durable and long-lasting material that should be considered as a wood-alternative.
Benefits of HDPE Plastic Lumber
Premium-grade recycled plastic lumber is an environmentally-friendly material that is manufactured from HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) plastic. It is sourced from post-consumer recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles. The result is an ultra-strong and durable building material that will last. Able to withstand extreme weather conditions like snow, rain, heat, cold and wind, plastic lumber by Bedford Technology is your go-to solution for outdoor projects and projects exposed to inclement or changing factory climates.
Plastic lumber doesn’t break or splinter like traditional wood and is resistant to mold, insects, harsh chemicals, salt and oils. This product will help you lower maintenance costs over time and outlast whatever Mother Nature or your project can throw at it.
