Industrial Strength Where You Need it Most
Industrial applications including cribbing, pipe supports, equipment mats and pallets, speed bumps, dunnage and scaffolding are complex, and the equipment used in these projects can be quite substantial. Equipment manufacturers and commercial organizations need a heavy-duty solution to common design and building challenges that doesn’t incur long-term maintenance costs, and is durable enough to support these large machines.
Important project requirements for these applications include a durable and strong material that can withstand heavy loads and provides dimensional stability. The material must also be structurally sound because it is common for machines and other large equipment to bump up against these applications.If the project will be outdoors, it’s important for the material to be able to withstand weather conditions like rain, extreme heat and cold, and must remain intact and functional through these types of environments.
Traditional building materials like wood, metal and concrete have been common in these types of industrial applications, but may not be the best long-term solution. Traditional wood can splinter, crack and degrade with heavy loads, and if exposed to moisture, can mold and deteriorate, causing the need for replacement. Metal can corrode and rust and when corrosion occurs, harmful chemicals can pollute the air, and concrete is used for heavy, usually immobile applications, and often crack and break down when exposed to constant moisture over time. A great alternative to traditional building materials is structural recycled HDPE plastic lumber.
Benefits of Structural Recycled HDPE Plastic Lumber
Structural recycled plastic lumber offers many benefits and is ideal for industrial projects where harsh weather conditions occur. The building material is manufactured using recycled HDPE plastic, and is a strong and durable product that doesn’t rot, mold, splinter or degrade like traditional building materials. It can withstand moisture and heavy loads and will not crack under pressure. It is ideal for cribbing, dunnage, equipment mats and pipe supports (among other applications) because the material is structurally-sound and can absorb energy from large equipment and will not break. It comes in many standard and non-standard profile sizes and lengths to meet your specific project design requirements. Plastic lumber is also ideal for speed bumps because it will hold up with constant vehicular traffic and can be easily transported to different locations.
Our Products are a Solution, Not a Band-Aid
Our products can withstand year round weather conditions. They can endure the harshest of environments including rain, snow, extreme heat and extreme cold.
Due to our manufacturing process, the color is engineered throughout the entire process so you will never have to worry about painting, staining or sealing our products.
Our products simply don’t need to be chemically-treated like wood does. Our product will never rot, splinter or degrade over time like wood can.
Impervious to Moisture
You can be confident in Bedford products because they can withstand high levels of moisture and are resistant to marine borers and crustaceans.
