Safeguard Your Bridges with Structural Recycled Plastic Lumber
Many project components, including piles and dolphins, create secure structures that help guide vessels and barges through channels away from bridge supports. Bridge pier protection systems keep the bridge intact and out of harm’s way by absorbing energy when boats and barges knock up against the structures.
Traditional building materials like wood, metal, and concrete can break down, degrade and corrode in marine industry applications because they’re submerged in water. Treated lumber can leach chemicals into the water, which is harmful to marine life. Rust from metal can find its way into drinking water, and concrete won’t hold up because seawater includes calcium, potassium and other chemicals that can break down the material over time.
Consider a wood-alternative building material instead of using a short-term solution that will need to be replaced and repaired; look to the long-term environmentally-friendly solution: structural recycled plastic lumber. Bedford Technology has over 25 years of proven experience in manufacturing marine-grade structural HDPE plastic lumber bridge pier protection systems.
Structural Recycled Plastic Lumber Benefits
Bedford Technology’s structural recycled plastic lumber offers technical properties and performance characteristics perfect for marine applications. Able to withstand extreme weather conditions like snow, extreme heat, cold and high levels of moisture, structural HDPE plastic lumber won’t mold, rot or degrade and is resistant to marine borers and crustaceans. Bedford Technology products are sourced from post-consumer and post-industrial recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles. So far, Bedford Technology has helped keep millions of pounds of plastic out of landfills by repurposing it into a durable and tough building material that is perfect for bridge pier protection systems.
