REII’s Plastic Thatch roofing material is superior to other current roofing options not only in the performance of our roof, but because of the positive environmental and economic effects. This roofing can be used where natural thatch would be used and provides the additional benefits of longer useful life, reduction of solid waste that must be “land-filled” and day-lighting of interior spaces. The REII roofing product provides superior ventilation similar to natural thatch and a quiet, secure roofing solution in tropical rain, unlike many solid roofing products (such as metal or fiberglass roofing) that have replaced thatch and create very hot, dark, and uncomfortable interior space. Furthermore, while PT roofing can match the durability of metal, because it is translucent, it allows for brighter, more useful and productive interior spaces. Our PT roofing material offers lasting value and outstanding quality to homeowners and it will find markets wherever people need affordable housing and use PET bottled beverages.
Landscaping fence offers homeowner a way to protect their home gardens from deer and other plant-damaging animals without obstructing the beauty of the landscaping. Our fence is as effective as other fence but superior because it does not obstruct the view and reuses waste plastic bottles.
Snow fence can be used for public or private use to keep snow from drifting. As with our landscaping fence, the transparent quality of our fence does not obstruct scenic beauty or visibility, while providing the same advantages of other snow fencing products.
Construction fence will be made out of colored bottles and be used in the same manner as other construction fence products.
Green house roof covers the reclaimed plastic bottles will be used to create continuous plastic sheets that will be purposed for covering greenhouses. These can be made to order in sizes required.
REII is conducting product tests to ensure our products meet appropriate standards– including ASTM and Living Building Challenge requirements.
The plastic fencing industry was estimated to be a $44 million industry for home use in the U.S, according to a Dartmouth University study in 2012. In Pennsylvania alone there are 97,680 miles of Interstate highway that need snow-fence annually to reduce drifting on roads and that would translate into $4.8m in sales (based on the wholesale price of $50/unit).
