Beach Access Walkways

Beach Access Walkways

Mr Boardwalk

Mister Boardwalk is a roll-out walkway system. This durable and long-lasting product is manufactured in Teak as well as Trex, a wood and plastic composite. Offered in 4′, 5′ and 6′ wide, Mister Boardwalk provides a safe and firm beach pathway the minute you installed it on the beach, while blending perfectly to your beach landscape. These modular walkways are made of two different materials: Trex® (wood & plastic composite) and TEAK (wood).

They are designed for high traffic public use at the beach for permanent and temporary installations. Mister Boardwalk products have a unique patented design. They provide a safe, flat walking surface that smoothly transitions from one section to the next. Unlike typical wood boardwalks, there are no nails to rust, deteriorate, pop out or get hot. It is easily installed, re-positioned or removed by Public Works or Maintenance personnel. Mister Boardwalk has some great winter features as well as it won’t show signs of buckling & cracks. Our Mister Boardwalk products are made in the USA and offered in 36” and 60” widths, with 42”, 48”, and 72” width available by special order.

 

TREX® (Wood & Plastic Composite)

TREX® is the most popular recycled or “plastic-type” deck lumber by far. TREX® re-cycles Hardwood Sawdust and Plastic Shopping Bags into deck lumber. We recommend TREX® for many reasons. Most competitors can’t show you a successful project that’s been around for many, many years. TREX® has been around for more than a decade and can point to several successful, long term, high profile projects around the USA. To our knowledge TREX® has always stood by their product, replacing defective material at no cost and has always put the customer first. We think, as do most others, that TREX® is a great product, although expensive. However with this cost comes great advantage:

• No splinters
• Expected to last more than 20 years
• Nearly maintenance free
• Great traction
• Meets all ada standards
• No rotting or cracking
• Environmentally friendly & made with recycled material


TREX® first got going (in a serious way) in our area (New Jersey), so we can check on high profile projects nearby that have held up well for over a decade, even at the oceanfront, and still look nearly new. For PUBLIC WORKS & COMMERCIAL PROJECTS, we strongly recommend TREX® and particularly at the beach where splinters are a huge liability.

TEAK (wood material): We have used the terms TEAK so that the general public will better understand the nature of the material we are offering. We actually supply a product marketed as DIAMOND DECKING® (sometimes called IPE or Pau Lope), a responsibly harvested (no damage to the Rain Forest!) South American Hardwood that we believe is superior to both Teak & Mahogany (& Pressure Treated Pine, for that matter). Diamond Decking® will probably out last Teak & Pressure Treated Pine and will surely out last Mahogany (It actually rivals “old growth” cypress & cedar heartwood for longevity!). Yet it retains the best qualities of a fine wood. First, it’s natural with a beautiful grain that is tight & elegant and the color is rich & warm, virtually the same as Teak. And it weathers to an attractive silvery gray, if you like. Also, Diamond Decking® is the strongest of the wood materials we offer, sometimes exceeding the strength of the other materials by as much as 100%–it’s very tough stuff!
