Our Material Selection

Lightweight durable plastic composites are replacing steel, aluminum, and fiberboard in the manufacturing of recreational and playground equipment. Plastic materials are more durable, more cost-efficient, and can be molded and decorated for use in a wide range of recreational products. The versatility of plastics makes them an ideal solution for replacing metals and woods that rust, warp, and generally degrade over time. Powder coating and paint chipping issues can be eliminated with plastics, while providing an extensive color palette.

Plastics are used in a large variety of applications within the recreational industry, from exercise and sports equipment to outdoor products for hunting, fishing, skating, and boating. UV stability and ease of cleaning and fabrication make plastics a perfect choice for modular playground systems, ice rinks, skate parks, and more.

Plastics for Recreation
