How Poly Outdoor Furniture is made

High density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic is used in the manufacture of poly outdoor patio furniture. 

Outdoor furniture made from high-density poly is high end outdoor patio furniture you will be proud and pleased to own - maintenance free - for years. 

Appearance and comfort features such as rounded, curved backs and seats are modeled after fine wooden furniture. Poly outdoor furniture is assembled using traditional wood-type joinery and counter sunk stainless steel fasteners. It appears to be substantial and heavy ... and it is.

POLYWOODŽ Furniture from Shop-NC
How Poly Outdoor Furniture is made:

Furniture starts out as HDPE pellets - up to 100% recycled from blow molded plastic bottles collected at recycle centers. The pellets are vacuumed into extruder machines that melt and mix colors with UV stabilizer agents. The extruder forms uniform boards of lumber with desired dimensional widths and thicknesses.  
Like wood, the boards have a grained finish. The lumber is heavier than wood and has solid color throughout.  Computerized routers precision cut each piece of poly lumber, including mortise and tenon joins, to assure a solid fit. Parts are stock piled waiting for your order. All poly lumber furniture from Shop-NC ships factory direct to you!

After being built, pieces are "knocked down" and shipped flat. Most furniture ships via UPS or FedEx ground. Larger tables and benches ship by common carrier.
Because it is so strong and durable, poly wood lumber performs extremely well in commercial settings.
