Playgrounds

Structural recycled plastic lumber can lengthen the life of your playground system while providing a safe and fun environment for children. Kids don’t need to worry about falling through a cracked board or catching a painful sliver because recycled plastic lumber doesn’t rot, mold, or splinter like traditional wood. It also requires no painting or staining because color is manufactured through the entire product. Plastic lumber cuts, saws, and drills like traditional wood, and with a 50-year warranty, once you build it, you can forget it. It’ll keep working so the kids can keep playing.

Plastic Lumber Works Hard, so You can Play Hard

Structural recycled HDPE plastic lumber can lengthen the life of playground equipment and provide a safe and fun environment for children to let their imaginations run wild. Poly lumber requires little to no maintenance or upkeep, elongating the project life-cycle and reducing overall costs. Plastic lumber doesn’t rot, mold or splinter like traditional wood, and it also requires no painting or staining because the color is manufactured throughout the entire product. Not only is it safe for children to play on, but it also helps keep millions of pounds of plastic out of landfills. All Bedford Technology playground building materials are manufactured using recycled HDPE plastic, which is especially appealing to consumers looking for environmentally-friendly building material options.

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.

Provide Safe and Durable Structures for Your Animals to Enjoy

Zoo facilities are astonishing due to their ability to go from one climate to another in a matter of seconds. From freezing tundra of the Arctic to the scorching desert, each animal lives in a unique habitat that is created for animal health and safety, and visitor education and enjoyment. Inside each habitat, structural zoo applications can include the surroundings like platforms, rest areas and play structures for the animals, and outside the habitats, projects can include boardwalks, benches and tables, site amenities, gates and fencing.

Traditional building materials for structural zoo applications, play structures and public applications include wood, metal and concrete. While these materials are commonly used, they can break down over time due to changing weather conditions, and exposure to rain or moisture can cause them to mold and rot. Metal can corrode and rust, which requires replacement because it can be harmful to animals, and concrete can crack and deteriorate.

Consider using an environmentally-friendly building material that is durable and built to last: HDPE plastic lumber.
