-Pinnacle Rubber Mulch Provides the Classic Appearance of Wood Without the Drawbacks -
PITTSBURGH, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Pittsburgh-based LTR Products, a subsidiary of Liberty Tire Recycling, the premier provider of tire recycling services in the United States, is rolling out an innovative alternative to traditional wood mulch for landscaping and playground surfacing - Pinnacle Rubber Mulch. Whereas wood mulch requires yearly applications because of its rapid rate of decomposition, recycled rubber mulch saves money by remaining bright and plush for years with minimal maintenance.
"Pinnacle Rubber Mulch not only saves trees from the shredder, but provides an outlet for the millions of scrap tires that Liberty Tire Recycling collects and processes annually," said Brad Pittam, General Manager of LTR Products. "As a truly innovative green product, our rubber mulch actually outperforms the less environmentally-friendly product we are seeking to replace."
Unlike wood mulch, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is resistant to wind and water erosion, bug and rodent infestation, fading caused by sunlight, and decomposition. Rubber mulch will not compress like wood mulch, providing a thick and luxurious base material for landscape beds. As safety surfacing, a 6-inch layer of Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will cushion a child's fall from as high as 12 feet. Available in various colors, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will not rub off on children or pets. Plus, rubber mulch is clean, minimizes airborne dust and particles, and will never splinter like wood mulch.
"Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is available in just about any amount - by the pound, ton, cubic foot and cubic yard - and we distribute anywhere in the U.S. from convenient coast-to-coast shipping points," Pittam said.
In addition to the products sold by LTR Products, Liberty Tire Recycling is a leading provider of crumb rubber - a unique rubber particle manufactured from recycled tires and designed to enhance the performance of athletic surfaces. Distributed as infill amongst synthetic grass, natural grass and sand, crumb rubber adds cushioning and springiness to protect athletes and enhance their performance. Common applications include football fields and equestrian arenas. Crumb rubber performs better than traditional infill by draining moisture, drying quickly, reducing dust and mud, and minimizing freezing. No matter the weather, a field comprised of crumb rubber is always ready for action.
