Tie Down Rails

Aerodynamics, fuel efficiency, and light weight are all important characteristics of parts for the transportation industry.  Crescent Plastics has assisted numerous OEM’s in providing materials and assisting in designs to provide the rugged and tough parts required for their applications. Replacing metal parts with those made from thermoplastic olefins eliminates the possibility of rust, removes sharp edges, reduces weight, and provides greater cold temperature impact resistance. 

Crescent Plastics has considerable experience in delivering custom extrusions and custom tubing that can survive the challenging conditions seen in this industry, such as temperature extremes, UV resistance, harsh chemicals, fuel exposure, and impact.

Examples of extruded plastic shapes we’ve provided for transportation applications include:

  • Protective trim
  • Tie-down rails
  • Corner guards
  • Edge protectors
  • Wall guards
  • Bumper strips
  • Traffic posts & delineators
  • Seating components
  • Air dams
  • Aerodynamic panels & trim
  • Light enclosures
  • License plate brackets
  • D.E.F. tubing
  • Marine components
  • Mid-turn brackets
  • and more

We work with a wide variety of thermoplastic materials and can manufacture custom extrusions in nearly any shape, no matter how simple or intricate. We can provide custom tubing as small as 0.188” in diameter and extruded plastic shapes up to 20” wide and larger.

Design Assistance for Transportation Applications

Our engineering team is available, to provide design assistance during product development. Whether you have only a rough design sketch or a completed prototype that’s ready to move into full production, we’re here to help!

Crescent Plastics’ expert engineers can assist you with everything from material selection to design modifications for better and more efficient manufacturability. We can provide 3D printed samples that allow you to test fit, form, and function. Our DFM (design for manufacturing) methodology ensures superior quality and maximum production efficiency. 

Custom, Durable Plastic License Plate Brackets

We have seen much success in replacing old metal license plate holders with our thermoplastic olefin materials. Our custom plastic license plate holders are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, stiff, flexible, and excellent in cold temperatures. 

Cost- & Time-Saving Techniques

We manufacture all tooling and dies in-house to reduce costs and production times, and to guarantee the quality and accuracy of your plastic extrusion shapes. DFM methodology, along with a range of in-house secondary services—like inkjet printing, hot stamping, punching, drilling, routing, assembly, and kitting—will help you get your product to market faster.
