Save Taxpayer Money
With the use of resin products for planters and light poles cities save up to 70% of the cost of conventional materials.
How can your community keep up with the green movement, remodel public areas with attractive site furnishings AND save your citizens’ hard earned money in budgets? The answer is Resin.
In these times of advanced science and technology, there are so many choices for materials and products. Resin stands above the rest because it is perfect for outdoor applications. It’s affordable, durable, maintenance free, and virtually indestructible.
In an age when “being green” is taking the world by storm, everyone wants their life and their city to be green too.
TerraCast® uses up to 100% post-consumer recycled material to make our products and they are forever recyclable.
We use sustainable practices in our factories including natural gas heated ovens and reclaimed-water cooling chambers. We are avid supporters of the US Green Building Council’s LEED Initiative.
TerraCast® resin products are formulated for outdoor sitescapes. A courtyard, public plaza, park, and other gathering places are ideal locations for resin. We can help you create a beautiful redevelopment plan that will qualify you for LEED credits, save taxpayer money and add style and to your community.
From the initial design phase to installation and maintenance, the resin is the most cost effective option. All of our planters are backed with a ten-year warranty. You’re not only saving money on the initial purchase, but your future budgets will have a surplus generated by the savings on care, maintenance, repair, and replacement costs. Unlike products made from concrete, clay, stone, or metal, Resin does not chip, crack, fade, corrode, stain, or pit and never needs to be painted.
An average 40-inch planter made of fiberglass retails for over $1,000.00. TerraCast®’s Resin 40-inch Planter retails for around $500.00, a 50% savings just in the material.
Accordingly, a site project filled with resin would cost a fraction of what it would cost if filled with other materials. A concrete planter needs extra packing and padding to ship and possibly a forklift to move it. Resin weighs ten times less than concrete and is easily arranged and installed by one or two people.
TerraCast® products are virtually impervious to damage, so there’s only minimal packing and padding to prep for transit.
Our products are lightweight so the shipping costs less and it takes less manpower to move them so the handling costs are as well.
Additionally, the care and maintenance of stone, metal, and fiberglass (which are susceptible to mold, discoloration, pitting, cracking, rusting, chipping, and decay) are an ongoing cost that taxes the annual budget. A site plan done in those materials will have to be replaced much sooner than a site plan done in resin.
Resin boasts durability and lasting beauty unrivaled by any other material. It’s impervious to damage from animals, weather, and accidental or intentional human abuse be it a car accident or graffiti.
TerraCast® products require no maintenance as they are weatherproof and worry-free. Even if the resin piece does sustain a nick or scrape, the color is blended all the way through so any blemish caused by damage would be virtually invisible, preserving the integrity and beauty of the piece.
New York Department of Transportation had our step planters in their original spec designs and TerraCast® is their preferred vendor for resin products.
Large cities like Los Angeles and Philadelphia have also installed our products in their pedestrian areas. Many areas’ DOT and local governments watch and learn from the Big Apple.
The reason for this is that not only are TerraCast®’s planters attractive and tasteful, but also strong and durable. General abuse from people, animals, bikes, cars, and the environment do not damage the resin.
TerraCast®’s resin is also vandalism and graffiti-resistant. The non-porous nature of the Linear Low Density Polyethylene means that paint, spray-paint, gum and other undesired potential markings and blemishes on the face of your sitescaping pieces will fall away. A household cleaner and scrub brush will easily remove any markings.
Another benefit of resin is that it’s absolutely worthless to metal scrapyards so thieves have no reason to try to take a chunk out of a TerraCast® piece.
The peace of mind that comes with our products is an added bonus. On top of the monetary savings, our products will remain as beautiful and strong as the day they were installed, saving money in the budget and preserving the beauty, class, and style of your scape for years to come.
The Donate a Park Bench Program
The Donate a Park Bench Program was developed to help local governments save tax dollars on site furnishing products. Once the local government sets up the program for its community, it allows individuals, companies, and charity groups to donate specified items such as tables, benches, bike racks, and trash receptacles. They can be used for parks, walkways, bike trails, city streets, schools, or other public spaces. Each item can be personalized with a plaque or custom engraving for recognizing the donor or a community group or as a memorial bench for loved ones. It provides a great opportunity for local companies to promote their businesses, and there is no cost to local governments or coordinating agencies. Contact us today to learn more about the program!
All of our products are made in America. All offices, warehouses, facilities and factories stand proud on US soil. Originally founded in 1969, we have remained an American owned and operated company.
A Terracast® product is designed to beat out the competition in every conceivable way. Our products are customizable, lightweight, weather/graffiti resistant, eco-friendly, and almost indestructible.
