Guaranteed for 35 years to never crack, rot, or splinter. This is our own secret family recipe for plastic lumber that surpasses all others. We have over 35 years of design expertise and plastics engineering experience that enable us to supply you with furniture you can rely on.

Quality BY DESIGN Tried and true American craftsmanship combined with modern technology to produce unsurpassed quality that you can see and feel. We use Recycled High Density Polyethylene aka HDPE, commonly found in milk and water jugs. We take pride in the fact that we use NO FILLERS.

Durability and comfort combined HDPE is a naturally flexible polymer that molds to your body for exceptional comfort. Our unique recipe doesn’t allow the plastic to break down or become brittle. You never need to worry about cracking, rotting or splintering…if Mother Nature can’t biodegrade it in less than 450 years, neither can you. Our plastic lumber is as dense as wood and approximately 20% heavier than cedar, making it a perfect substitute for wood – without the maintenance.

Colorfast The fact that our material is considered colorfast sets us apart from other manufacturers. We only offer colors that have the highest percentage of UV stabilization. We work closely with the largest color concentrate supplier in the world to ensure our colors will resist fading over long periods of time. The colorant runs throughout each piece and the added UV-inhibitor incorporated into each piece minimizes the chance that your furniture will become brittle or discolored.

made in america

We are an American, family-owned and operated business and we are proud to say we manufacture all of our products and plastic lumber in the USA.

CARE AND CLEANING Water will remove most soil. You may use any non-abrasive cleaner, including bleach, if you feel it’s necessary to sanitize. High-pressure washing (or a trip to the car wash) is recommended for white pieces. The material is non-porous and won’t absorb spills that may stain.  

Versatility Our furniture is made to withstand extreme climates and temperature changes. From freezing Minnesota winters to the dry desert of Arizona or the saltwater climate of the Florida Keys; our furniture can take it all and ask for more!
