Light-Duty Piling with Heavy-Duty Performance
Small water piles are installed on docks and piers to protect and support the foundation against damage from boats and vessels. These piles are often installed below sea level and provide structural integrity. Light-duty piling includes small-water applications like private and public docks and recreational marinas.
Important project requirements for light-duty piling includes structural integrity, the ability to hold up without deteriorating in wet environments and energy absorption capabilities. Traditional building materials for these piles like wood, metal and concrete can break down over time. Wooden piles can splinter and crack from repeated bumps and small impacts, causing a decrease in the strength in the pile and increasing the need for replacement. This decreases the project material life-cycle, and the maintenance and repair costs can accrue over time, creating more hassle than a long-term solution. Consistent exposure to moisture can rot, mold and decay traditional wood, causing the need for replacement and chemicals found in seawater can deteriorate metal and concrete.
Consider structural HDPE plastic lumber for light-duty piling as an alternative to traditional building materials.
Structural Recycled HDPE Plastic Lumber Benefits
Recycled plastic lumber will outlast whatever Mother Nature can throw at it. Able to withstand extreme heat, cold, snow, rain and moisture, plastic lumber is a structural-grade building material that is built to last. The material does not need to be chemically-treated for increased longevity, leaving harmful chemicals out of the seawater that can damage the environment. The material itself is chemical-resistant and is manufactured with additives like UV stabilizers to keep the color intact. The composition of the plastic itself allows this product to truly be a long-lasting and durable solution. It is also impervious to marine borers, fungus, salt, oils and crustaceans.
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.
