Replacing Traditional Wood with Plastic Lumber

There are many benefits to using plastic timber and recycled plastic building materials instead of traditional wood. With plastic lumber, you get a longer life-cycle and lower maintenance costs. Composite structural lumber products by Bedford Technology are truly low-maintenance – they don’t need to be painted or stained and graffiti comes right off with a pressure washer. Our recycled plastic lumber can withstand extreme environments because it doesn’t rot, splinter or degrade and structural integrity is built into the product. Plastic lumber does not leach chemicals and is not chemically-treated so there are no harmful effects on the environment. Below are a few more reasons why plastic lumber is a great solution for your project needs:

SelectForce® by Bedford Technology

Bedford Technology uses recycled HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic to manufacture durable plastic lumber. The manufacturing process keeps millions of milk jugs and other household plastics out of the landfills and is an environmentally-friendly product that can also be recycled. As the foundation of Bedford Technology’s other product lines, SelectForce® by Bedford Technology fits a wide range of applications because it is available in custom shapes and colors, and can have added strength and rigidity depending on your project requirements.

Helping Save the Environment

Standard plastic lumber is also the foundation of Bedford Technology’s effort to help conserve the environment. Our material is sourced from post-consumer recycled plastics like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles. Not only is the material recycled, the plastic lumber end-product is also recyclable. Over the last 20 years, Bedford Technology and our customers have helped save millions and millions of pounds of plastic from going to the landfill.

Projects using standard recycled plastic lumber also meet sustainability practice requirements by the USGBC, which can qualify for the LEED Certification Program. Using plastic lumber will not only make you an innovator in the construction market, you can even earn points for your green construction efforts.
