Spring is prime time for seawall construction, and Everlast Synthetic Products, a national leader in the design and manufacturing of seawalls and bulkheads, is encouraging the use of lasting materials like co-extruded vinyl.

“With the spring season upon us, people returning to their waterfront homes and marinas are gearing up for the busy season,” said company co-owner Brad Lund. “We anticipate a huge increase in demand this year from all areas and we will work three shifts, seven days per week, in our state of the art facility to meet this demand.”

Everlast has introduced a superior vinyl seawall system that utilizes co-extruded vinyl. This type is stronger, more environmentally friendly, and super-resistant to color fading from ultraviolet rays. The new technology uses a procedure in which an ultra UV-resistant cap stock is applied to a strong layer of vinyl to form interlocking sheet piling. A top finishing cap is then applied after the seawall is in place. This process creates a product that can be used in the successful construction of stronger and higher walls to separate land from water.

“Waterfront property owners are interested more than ever in protecting their investments,” said Lund. “This breakthrough in seawall manufacturing increases drivability and strength. It allows seawalls to achieve heights that were not previously possible.”

Co-extruded vinyl products have become the choice of engineers and architects, not only because of their resilience, but also due to their uniformity of color and extreme longevity. The traditional mainstays of the industry – wood, concrete, steel and aluminum – are vulnerable to different forms of natural degradation. Co-extruded vinyl is impervious to anything nature can deliver.

This product is also excellent for lakefront, riverfront and water retention areas, and it creates an effective barrier against sudden flash flooding after heavy rains.

“Environmentalists have showed overwhelming support for vinyl seawall construction. It is the ideal material for protecting marine life from fertilizers, oils, silt and debris while also protecting the land from erosion,” Lund said. “The products we use are warranted for 50 years, and will keep on protecting the water for generations.”

Everlast Synthetic Products, as a manufacturer, offers engineering assistance to anyone who needs professional guidance with any product application. They provide seawalls and other marine products for customers throughout the US and worldwide.
