Deck Your Playground with Durable Plastic Lumber that Lasts
Playgrounds are much more than just slides, swings and play structures. Many playground projects are installed outdoors, receive heavy wear-and-tear and are exposed to a wide variety of weather year-round. All of these projects must be durable, structurally sound and able to withstand harsh weather conditions.
Durability is an important project requirement because it helps increase project life-cycle and decrease the amount of maintenance time and cost after project installation. The consistent wear-and-tear also requires the material to be easy to clean, graffiti-proof and safe for children and animals. With any outdoor project, Mother Nature can bring about some harsh and sometimes severe weather conditions, so using a building material that can hold up against moisture like snow and rain, heavy wind and extreme heat and cold will also increase the life of the playground equipment.
Traditional building materials for these types of applications include wooden timbers, metal and concrete. However, these materials have a tendency to break down and deteriorate over time and don’t meet long-term project requirements. Environmental conditions will cause wood to rot, mold and degrade, metal will rust and corrode and concrete can crack and break down causing the need for repairs, or even worse, replacement. Also, these conditions can be unsafe for humans and animals. Graffiti can also occur in playgrounds and parks and undoing this type of damage often results in replacement, or a fresh coat of paint.
Instead of spending time and money repairing and replacing damaged structures, consider using an alternative building material: Recycled HDPE plastic lumber.
Benefits of Recycled HDPE Plastic Lumber
Unlike traditional building materials, recycled HDPE plastic lumber is a truly low-maintenance building material in that it will not rot, mold, splinter, crack or deteriorate in outdoor weather conditions. It also doesn’t require painting or staining because the color is manufactured throughout the entire board and UV stabilizers are added to help keep the color intact over time. It is environmentally-friendly because it is engineered from post-consumer and post-industrial recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles, and is safe for both animals and humans. HDPE plastic lumber comes in varying degrees of strength depending on your project needs and is available in over 40 color options and standard and custom profile lengths and sizes.
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.
