Orchard Park, N.Y., June 29, 2021 – Stadiums are reopening and event-goers will notice some are better than ever! Curbell Plastics, Inc., one of the nation’s top suppliers of plastic sheet, rod, tube, tapes, and fabricated parts, supported a project aimed to make spectator sports and events even more enjoyable for attendees.

Over a dozen venues have been equipped with new state-of-the-art fan pleasing upgrades. King StarBoard®, the original marine-grade high density polyethylene (HDPE), was used to create drink rails and table tops with built-in cooling cup holders so the last sip will be colder and more refreshing than the first. The new drink rail and table top installs would be exposed to outdoor conditions including UV rays, heat, rain, and humidity. Since these were being installed in high traffic areas, the project required high-impact strength, abrasion resistant, and crack resistant materials to better withstand the natural wear and tear from enthusiastic fans.

“The customer originally specified King StarBoard® ST because it was an outdoor application and they liked the surface and stock colors available,” said Curbell Plastics Territory Sales Manager Jeff Rogers. “When I reviewed their requirements, I suggested they look at standard King StarBoard® with sheet sizes that offered a better yield and thicknesses that made sense for their needs.” King StarBoard® HDPE sheet is easy to fabricate with traditional woodworking tools. It won’t rust, delaminate, or rot, and is virtually maintenance free as it never needs painting or refinishing. The new drink rails and table tops are beautiful, functional additions to the selected stadiums and ready for fans to enjoy!
