Extra, Extra! Read all About it… For Generations to Come
Signage is all around us. From road and traffic signs to advertising and billboards, we encounter these messages everyday. There are many different types of signage, but let’s focus these projects to parks and recreation, landscaping and golf course signage. These applications include mile markers, trail markers, informational signs, hole markers, traffic signs and safety signs. 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.
Depending on the type of sign, the importance of aesthetics may vary, but no matter what the use is, signage must be durable. For parks and recreation, landscaping and golf course signage, important requirements include easy installation, durable, graffiti-resistant and easy to clean. Since these signs are mainly installed in natural surroundings, animals are prone to bite and chew the material (to see if it tastes as good as it looks).
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 deteriorate from animal chews and bites, and graffiti can 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 also cause metal corrosion, which will degrade and break down the metal, which can cause project failure.
Instead of going the traditional route for your next signage project, look to the modern counterpart; recycled plastic lumber.
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 composite 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 and biting 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 so you don’t have to worry about future paint touch-ups. You can customize your sign to meet any aesthetic requirements or preferences you may have.
