  • 14 Jan 2015

Trex Company, manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, will showcase the benefits of its capped composites in its display at BAU 2015 in Munich (stand B5.118).

Making an appearance on Stand B5.118 alongside its Transcend product, Trex will launch its first-ever high-performance WPC decking series specifically designed for the European market.

Trex Contour decking

The new Trex Contour line delivers high performance and low maintenance in a style comparable to top European offerings, yet at a more competitive price point. The capped composite deck boards are scalloped at the base using a process that consumes less material. This design enables Trex to offer the line at a more competitive price point without sacrificing aesthetics or durability.

Like all Trex decking products, Trex Contour decking is made of 95 percent recycled material – including reclaimed wood, sawdust and plastic packaging – making it an environmentally friendly and sustainable building solution.

Bryan Fairbanks, executive director of supply chain and international business development for Trex: “Trex Contour decking represents the first Trex product designed specifically with our European customers in mind. By offering a product that combines Trex’s unparallelled engineering, performance and aesthetics with European styling and an opening price point, we aim to significantly expand the Trex footprint internationally.”

Trex Contour boards available in 5 nature-inspired colours:

  • Sand Brown (light)
  • Honey Brown (medium)
  • Clove Brown (dark)
  • Russet Red (reddish-brown)
  • Pebble Grey (light)

These options join the tropically inspired Trex Transcend Tiki Torch (light brown), Transcend Lava Rock (reddish-black), Transcend Spiced Rum (earth umber) and Enhance Clam Shell (silvery grey) offerings already available throughout Europe.

Decking difference

Differentiating Trex Contour and all Trex decking products from the competition is the company’s exclusive protective shell design. Using a nine-ingredient formula proprietary to Trex, the company caps its deck boards. The shell allows for deeper graining to deliver a more realistic wood look while providing UV resistance and superior protection against the outdoor elements.
