Benefits of Plastic Lumber
Recycled HDPE plastic lumber is a long-lasting building material that won’t rot, splinter and crack. It is resistant to moisture and can withstand extreme heat, cold and moisture without breaking down over time. It is an environmentally-friendly wood-alternative that 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 trailer flooring, ramps and bump boards, plastic lumber will outlast whatever Mother Nature and large animals can throw (or kick) at it.
What Bedford Technology Products for the Job?
SelectForce® by Bedford Technology is a durable building material that is more flexible than traditional wood. It can withstand harsh weather and is available in many color options. It has a smooth texture finish and comes in standard and customized profile lengths and colors.
Why Traditional Building Materials Fall Short
Traditional wood is the most common building material that is used for trailers. While wood is strong, it doesn’t necessarily perform the greatest for outdoor weather conditions. When animals crib and chew on stalls, 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 stalls looking fresh and new. Instead of dealing with repairs, choose a long-term solution with plastic lumber.
