Also exhibiting with LTR Products is Eco-Flex®, manufacturers of products made from recycled rubber, including interlocking tiles for walkways and driveways.  Pinnacle Rubber Mulch and Eco-Flex's array of products help facility managers maximize the performance of their facilities while also decreasing annual maintenance costs.

"Unlike wood mulch, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will continue to look fresh for at least 12 years, eliminating the recurring labor and material costs involved with mulching year after year," said Brad Pittam, general manager of LTR Products. "Simply put, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is a smarter landscaping solution for the built environment that helps facility managers save time and money.  Rubber mulch offers the same aesthetics as wood mulch without any of the drawbacks."

The upfront purchase of rubber mulch costs up to 65 percent less over a nominal five-year period when it is compared to the annual expense of replenishing wood mulch.  In addition to being cost-effective, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch correlates closely with the growing demand in the marketplace for sustainable building product alternatives that are both smart and safe.  Rubber mulch saves millions of trees from the shredder, and provides an outlet for the millions of scrap tires that are collected and processed each year.  

At the IFMA World Workplace Expo, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will be located at Booth 1633 in the Georgia World Congress Center.  Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will also be sponsoring the "River Scout – Freshwater Mysteries" display during the Expo's welcome reception on Wednesday, October 27 at the Georgia Aquarium.

About Pinnacle Rubber Mulch

Introduced by LTR Products in December 2009, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch is an innovative alternative to traditional wood mulch for landscaping and playground surfacing.  Pinnacle Rubber Mulch saves money by remaining bright and plush for at least 12 years with minimal maintenance.  It is resistant to wind and water erosion, bug and rodent infestation, fading caused by sunlight, and decomposition.  Unlike wood mulch, Pinnacle Rubber Mulch does not compress, thereby providing a thick and luxurious base material for landscape beds.  As safety surfacing, a six-inch layer of Pinnacle Rubber Mulch will cushion a child's fall from as high as 16 feet.   For more information about Pinnacle Rubber Mulch, please visit
