Polymer Coated Products

For ultimate longevity, have your wood components coated with Polyshield polymer coating. It encapsulates the wood surfaces coated, protecting your wood components from moisture, insects, and even UV rays. Coating wood products with the poly coating can easily double the life of materials used outdoors — even for structures built in water. Over the years, we have coated many zoo and theme park products such as:

  • Handrails
  • Trash Cans
  • Recycling Bins
  • Timbers
  • Pilings
  • Dome Top Guide Poles
  • Fence Posts


If longevity is important for your project, ask your project consultant about coating your wood components with the polymer wood coating.
