Reinforce Your Coastline with Strength & Durability
Keeping shorelines safe from erosion and deterioration is no easy feat. Many contributing factors like waves and currents, storms and rising sea levels overtake beaches and remove sand, changing the coastline. These are natural environmental occurrences but can become damaging for marinas and beaches when landslides take place and dunes are formed.
Shoreline maintenance projects like retaining walls, groynes and wave attenuation can help diminish the impact of beach erosion by regulating water current energy to reduce the effects. Groynes act as barriers built into the water from the shoreline to protect beach drift. Retaining walls are commonly used where elevation occurs to stabilize sand and dirt and wave attenuation includes low walls or fences located underwater to dampen wave and current energy from coming to shore.
Erosion can cost a lot of time and money to fix, and finding the right building material for shoreline maintenance applications can be difficult because these projects have many performance characteristics that must be met to achieve success. The material must remain intact when submerged in water and not have a negative impact on marine life. Traditionally, these projects are constructed using wooden timbers, concrete and metal. However, conventional building materials can fall short and require long-term maintenance and cost because the performance characteristics don’t meet all the requirements.
Bedford Technology’s structural recycled plastic lumber offers performance characteristics perfect for heavy-duty marine applications that require increased strength properties. Able to withstand extreme weather conditions like ice, 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.
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.
