Recycled plastic sheeting is a tough, high density polyethylene product used for farm, home or leisure construction. It’s ideal for dairy barns, kennels & commercial /industrial applications. Recycled plastic sheeting outlasts most conventional construction materials; compare this maintenance-free product to conventional building materials which require constant maintenance to prevent yellowing, splintering, rotting, delamination or rusting. A budget-friendly product, when factoring in how long it will outlast conventional building materials that need eventual replacement.
Installation Instructions: Allow sheeting to rest in building for at least 24 hours before install. During this period, maintain the building at normal operating temperature. This allows the product to assume the temperature characteristics of the building, minimizing expansion or contraction after installation. Install boards at normal operating temperature. Drill oversized pilot holes through the sheet for each fastener (1/4″ diameter hole is usually adequate). Keep holes at least 1″ from any edges of the plastic. Closer than 1″ will cause weakness and possible splitting at the edges. Always leave 1/8″ gap between flat boards. Install using stainless steel bugle head screw with flat ¼” stainless washers. Note sheeting is slick when wet, so the product is not recommended for flooring applications.
