Snap Edge Environmental Info
SEK strives to offer the highest quality products using the most environmentally friendly material and processes that maintain a threshold of product performance expected by our customers. Our products and services are engineered to reduce the environmental impacts compared to similar products and services used for the same purpose.
SEK products are manufactured to last well beyond the industry expectation. By increasing the “in use” life span of our products, it eliminates the need to consume additional raw materials and the energy/fuels needed to make and transport new product.
All edge restraints produced by SEK (Snap Edge, Snap Edge Low Profile, Barrier, Sta-Right) are made from 100% recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE). The recycled HDPE comes from both post-consumer and post industrial material. HDPE is an inert material, versus PVC which is not, eliminating the concern of environmental contamination into the soil or atmosphere.
Our spikes, both steel and composite, are made from recycled steel and post-medical monitor casing and instrument trays.
SEK has a sustainability leader who actively explores ways for us to incorporate new practices, processes, materials, packaging, etc. to improve our environmental position. We integrate economic, environmental and social decisions into our decision making. We are committed to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
