The EcoPile is the first piling that is truly engineered for the marine construction industry. It is designed to outlast all other pilings, and to meet all the rigors of harsh marine construction and is engineered for the exacting needs of walkways, boat lifts and boathouses. The EcoPile is the most environmentally friendly option when selecting a piling for your project, and it is also the most economical over your dock’s lifetime.

Piling Repair and Preservation
There has never been an easier way to preserve and repair rotting marine pilings than by using the SnapJacket. Using its patent pending design, the highly durable, UV-protected, PVC-based product simply affixes over an existing piling and locks together. The next step is to fill it with concrete and you’re done. No more spending thousands of dollars and waiting weeks on expensive barges, cranes or heavy equipment. Thanks to our innovative SnapJacket design, there is now a better method of dock piling repair.
Protective Piling Barrier
The DuroSleeve provides exceptional marine piling protection throughout its lifetime. The Durosleeve is a marine piling sleeve comprised of a standard CCA treated piling that is completely enclosed within durable and UV protected PVC. The DuroSleeve is heat shrunk to the piling with no seams. No water ever has a chance to touch the wood as there are no holes or points of failure, unlike the thin black plastic wrap. The Durosleeve is ideal because wood destroying organisms cannot penetrate the impermeable and durable PVC.
Shoreline Plastics’ Products Are the Most Environmentally Friendly Solution
The timber pilings used for marine dock construction are often treated with a protective coating of chromated copper arsenate (CCA). This coating is supposed to help preserve the wood against deterioration from fungal decay, termites, and other wood-boring marine life, but it’s only temporary. The wood beneath the water’s surface, and especially the wood that sits between the high and low tides, gets ravaged by waterborne marine organisms once the coating begins to fade. This could be offset by a greater application of CCA, but the amount used for the treating of lumber is highly regulated. This is because this chemical preservative will eventually leach off into the water, and it’s important to minimize the ecological impact that CCA has on our waters. The Durosleeve ensures that the chemical treatments stay inside the lumber and the bugs stay out, both extending the life of the pile and keeping the waterways cleaner.
PVC Is an excellent material to use for piling protection because it does not corrode or decay. Even the oldest PVC created still holds strong with no signs of deterioration. The reason plastic is thought of as being bad for the environment is because it simply won’t break down. This means that litter and trash that make it into landfills and oceans will be around forever, which does pose environmental problems. What makes plastic so harmful is also what makes it so great. If trying to preserve something forever, there is no better material to use. It is extremely durable, and salt-derived chlorine makes up more than half of its chemical composition—making it a far more eco-friendly choice than oil-derived plastics.
Shoreline Plastics’ products are entirely eco-friendly. Our SnapJackets are made from more than 95% recycled plastic and ensure you’ll never need to drive in a wood piling again. These plastic shells will never wear or deteriorate even in the harshest saltwater conditions insuring your piles will be long lived. When the plastic is done serving its purpose it is 100% recyclable. It lasts longer than plastics like HDPE; this longevity is why we are the only composite piling options that come with a warranty. Plus, by preserving wood pilings for lengthier periods of time, our products ensure that fewer trees need to be cut down for use in marine construction.
