Sustainable Solutions For Outdoor Living

HDPE can be more easily recycled than any other polymer and has the number “2” as its recycling symbol. HDPE releases no toxic gases or dioxins contained in many traditional building materials. HDPE panels help eliminate the use of scarce wood resources and helps keep other materials out of the waste stream and incinerators. HDPE panels have molded‐in color, avoiding secondary finishing processes that often release VOC’s into the atmosphere/building. HDPE is very durable and requires no maintenance. HDPE never needs painting, therefore they do not contribute to VOC emissions, improving both indoor and outdoor air quality. In addition, can be power washed or steamed cleaned, eliminating the need for harmful chemical cleans.
