Northstar Vinyl Bulkhead

Vinyl Bulkheading

Northstar Vinyl Bulkheading is designed for extended life and durability in marine applications. Its rigidity and superior design make it very effective for walls near roadways and for landscape erosion control systems. Other alternative uses range from cofferdams to concrete forms to head walls for bridges.

The Huge Advantages of Using Northstar Vinyl Bulkhead

  • Maintains Attractiveness longer than wood
  • Extremely Cost Effective - lasts twice as long as wood
  • Easier to Install than Wood
  • Impervious to Marine Borers
  • Northstar Vinyl is Monoextruded
  • Resistant to UV rays
  • Lifetime Transferable Warranty

"Northstar Vinyl Bulkheading is definitely superior to other products on the market.”

Monoextruded – pertains to the method used to manufacture the vinyl. The material is the same all the way through so there is no thin top layer to peel or strip away from an inferior substrate like in other vinyl walls.
