Greenest bumper on the planet

Boston Retail launches the greenest bumper on the planet, ecoRigid plus+

MADE OF 95 PERCENT post-consumer RECYCLED pvc-free content

Boston Retail’s latest advancement in bumper manufacturing is inspired by ecological enthusiasts worldwide that seek an environmentally proficient bumper alternative to virgin PVC (Polyvinyl chloride). The ecoRigid plus+ is the only bumper that is 100% PVC-free, plus contains 95% certified post-consumer content.  The post-consumer content utilizes thermoplastic material discarded by consumers that would normally have entered a landfill but, are instead recycled.


EcoRigid plus+is used in retail, commercial and industrial applications to protect capital equipment such as registers, kiosks and refrigeration cases and fixtures, including walls.  1-inch and 2-inch models 1000 and 2000 cover, base, and ends have earned UL Environment Environmental Claims Validation (ECV) for incorporating a minimum of 95% post-consumer recycled content. “UL Environment is proud to be the independent third party trusted to test and certify the environmental claims of a product designed to protect users and maintain the value of capital investments,” said Steve Wenc, president of UL Environment, Inc.


“Boston Retail is committed to developing environmentally-preferable products for multiple markets and industries,” said Russell Rubin, managing director of Boston Retail.  “EcoRigid plus+ supports several sustainable building and purchasing guidelines around the globe, and the credibility of UL Environment’s validation helps us showcase our value as a more sustainable alternative for rigid bumpers.”


UL Environment applies a rigorous, independent process to the testing and auditing of environmental claims and allows manufacturers that successfully pass the tests to apply the UL Environment ECV service logo on product packaging and marketing materials.
