- We use the purest grade of Type-2 HDPE recycled plastic in the industry today. It is made primarily from post-consumer material, milk jugs. Each pound of lumber is made up of 10 milk jugs. As the purest grade of recycled plastic, it can be recycled again extending the product life-cycle.
- Premium Grade Resins and Ultra Violet Inhibitors are added to the lumber to prevent fading from sun exposure and the weathering.
- When called for, openings are to be clearly identified with pictures that are mounted to UV Stable Polycarbonate. Identifiers are to be interchangeable and recessed into material.
|Marine-grade hardware, fasteners and hinges
|Tongue & Groove joinery on all corner posts
|All door panels are reinforced with aluminum tubing
- Manufactured in the USA
- Rigid heavy-duty liners included
- Optional Header is easily removed and interchangeable
- Restrictive openings accommodate Cans/Bottles, Paper, Organic material, etc.
- Our lumber lasts for decades, and thanks to our full line of engineered products built with commercial-grade building techniques, the furnishings themselves last just as long.
- The lumber won't absorb moisture, which can lead to rotting and won't harbor insects. It offers many of the characteristics of wood, but requires virtually no maintenance!
About Plastic Lumber:
When it comes to recycled HDPE (#2) plastic, purity makes a world of difference. The purity count in this Type2 Material drastically increases the long-term performance of the product, and at 97 percent recycled material, our plastic lumber is so pure it can be recycled a second time. Products with 35 percent recycled content can't say that.
In the end, plastic is just better. It's better than wood, concrete and steel. Recycled plastic is color-stable, doesn't rust or crack, and costs less than the alternatives. It's environmentally-friendly too—recycling plastic diverts waste from going to landfills and reduces our dependence on fossil fuels.
Type2 Material is impervious to insects, moisture and mold, meaning it won't rot, splinter, or become dinner for pests as wood often does. Added UV inhibitors keep its colors stable, while bonding agents create complete molecular linkage for optimum structural integrity.
Here's how it works:
- Recyclables get collected right from your curb; soda bottles, milk jugs or that empty bottle of aspirin. They're then hauled to a material recovery facility to be sorted, crushed and baled.
- Plastic reclaimers then grind the containers into flakes, clean them of any residues and contaminants, and send them along the recycling chain. Manufacturers buy the clean plastic flakes and melt them into pellets adding colorant, UV inhibitors and bonding agents.
- Finally, Type2 Material is extruded to shape, ready to be built into furnishings that close the loop on needless waste. Demanding recycled plastic reduces the use of virgin plastics and our dependence on fossil fuel as a result.
