Repurposed

  Beach boardwalk before and now a nature boardwalk? No problem. Our materials are designed to withstand all of the natural elements, no matter where they are placed.

  We believe in our products. We offer a 100-year lifetime warranty on our boardwalks. If, for any reason, your boardwalk needs to be replaced, the design of our product makes that as easy as replacing a boardwalk can be. 

The prefabricated, galvanized structural steel frames help the boardwalks to withstand natural elements without damaging the nature itself. The Posi-Loc hinge and Posi-Trus system which allows boardwalks to be flexible. Our boardwalks are durable. They are adjustable. They are built to last, in any environment, whether that a swamp or lake, or the forest or the beach.
