Long Use Cycles
Our products are durable and have long use cycles, which reduces replacement costs and maximizes material usage efficiency.
Our products are very low maintenance and require no treatments, stains, solvents, varnishes or preservatives that may contain contaminating chemicals.
Our aluminum products are strong, yet lightweight, using less raw material and allowing easier handling and lower shipping costs.
Our Feeney Trellis kits, as well as CableRail cable assemblies, can be used to create energy-saving trellis and landscape shading panels and partitions that support cooling foliage in the summer, yet allow maximum sunlight and warmth during the dormant winter months.
On January 19, 2011, our manufacturing facility in Oakland, California, switched on a new 380 panel (over 5,000 square foot) photovoltaic solar array that can produce as much as 90 kilowatts direct current (DC) of clean, sun-generated electricity. It’s enough “juice” to potentially offset the facility’s entire energy needs.
Our Oakland plant utilizes a fully automated, computerized machining center programmed to continue running and producing high-precision parts after hours during non-peak electric usage periods and without the need of lighting or technicians.
The powder-coating facility we use in Tekamah, Nebraska, features a new, state-of-the-art powder-coating line that emits no V.O.C.s or heavy metal waste, uses a non-chromium pre-treatment wash, and reclaims 93% of the wastewater via a reverse-osmosis membrane filtration system.
We have an ongoing company recycling program that includes paper, cardboard, cans, bottles and all residual metal machining shavings.
Our outgoing shipments use heavy duty cardboard boxes that can be reused or recycled, and our packing peanuts are made from biodegradable, non-toxic cornstarch that quickly dissolves in water and can be reused or composed. They are even FDA approved.
