Cleaning Outdoor Products

Cleanliness is one of the most critical elements for your home or business today. Public areas or high touch areas require routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. While the CDC recommends using diluted bleach solutions, many materials may have a negative effect from applying bleach. The TerraCast® resin material is safe for applying bleach. Unlike other materials, our planters will not fade or degrade when disinfecting surfaces. They are a great solution to businesses to separate areas to allow for social distancing, without unsightly barriers or high maintenance work. From installing to cleaning, our planters are easy to handle!
