Our newest line, EcoPremier, is recycled porcelain and can be a 100% direct replacement of aggregate in our concrete-based products. With as much as 43% recycled content by weight.
We use recycled metals to produce our line of metal site furnishings that include planters, benches, tables, waste containers and snuffers. Wherever steel rebar reinforcement is used throughout our concrete manufacturing, it is made from recycled steel.
We recycle and reuse our own plastic waste to manufacture our waste container liners and bench componets.
Our Terra-Tabs and Terra-Shims, used with our roof deck pedestal systems, are made from 100% pre consumer recycled rubber.
We reduce the amount of cement necessary in our concrete products whenever possible by substituting a portion of the cement with fly ash.
A specially formulated applied finish on our roof deck pavers and concrete benches allows for a SRI (solar reflectance index) of over 79.

Our exclusive reservoir wick system can be used with our concrete planters to maintain root moisture and lessen water consumption.
Recycled glass aggregatescan be used in all of our concrete and epoxy based products.
Water Filtration System
Filter presses have been installed in the manufacturing of our concrete products to reduce particles in wastewater.
Recycled water is used in all phases of our manufacturing process.
Roto Mold Plastics Oven
