Extra, Extra! Read all About it… For Generations to Come
Signage is all around us. These applications carry important messages and can include mile markers, trail markers, informational signs, hole markers, traffic signs, safety signs and more. These applications must remain intact for long periods of time and be able to withstand outdoor environments and serious weather conditions, all while looking aesthetically pleasing.
Benefits of Recycled Plastic Lumber
Plastic lumber is manufactured from recyclables like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles, which is engineered from HDPE plastic lumber. HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is an ultra-strong plastic building material that is durable and will withstand extreme weather conditions. It also doesn’t rot, mold or degrade and is perfect for golf course, parks and recreation and landscaping signage. Recycled plastic lumber is graffiti-resistant. In fact, most chemicals will not adhere to the material, and it can easily be cleaned with a soapy water mixture. It is resistant to animals chewing the material and won’t splinter. It also comes in many color options, profile lengths and shapes. Bedford Technology offers secondary work including CNC engraving and embossing, which eliminates the need for paint because the message is engraved into the plastic lumber. You can customize your sign to meet any aesthetic requirements or preferences you may have.
Traditionally constructed using wood and metal, these materials can break down over time. Since Mother Nature reigns supreme in these environments, sometimes frequent and unexpected weather conditions like rain, snow, temperature fluctuations and wind can occur. Signage must be resilient to all types of weather, and must be sturdy and dependable. Traditional wood can splinter and animals can damage and deteriorate the material. It can also break down due to extreme weather conditions like rain and snow and is susceptible to termite and other insects. Graffiti can also damage this material, or become a permanent addition to the sign. Metal will corrode and rust and deteriorate in extreme weather conditions, and air pollution can cause metal corrosion, which will degrade and break down the metal, leading to project failure.
Instead of going the traditional route for your next signage project, look to the modern counterpart; recycled plastic lumber.
