Polymer Outdoor Kitchens
Polymer outdoor cabinets are made of “marine grade” polymer which is used in applications with boating and marine technology. Polymer is best described as a plastic and it is a synthetic material. The technical term for it is "HDPE" or "high density polyethylene". The main benefits of this material is that it’s not prone to rot, rust or other forms of deterioration. It also has the benefit of UV (ultra- violet) inhibitors to guard against fading and deterioration from the Florida sun. Consumers enjoy the maintenance free cabinets as they can be hosed off with a hose for washing, impervious to water or moisture, and are stain resistant. The downfalls would be limited colors, does not have the rich look of wood, and if you are eco-friendly these cabinets are not as they are made with petrochemicals. Polymer is a good choice if you want something that is durable and close to wood in appearance. Please keep in mind that when choosing your grill or any gas appliance that special care needs to be taken to make sure the appliance can be used in a combustible product.
