New decking products from Azek, AERT, Enduris, Genova Products, and TimberTech.
AERT. The new MoistureShield Vantage Collection is a wood-plastic composite decking line designed to balance performance and cost, while offering green building benefits. Planks measure 5/4 inches by 6 inches, and are embossed with a realistic woodgrain finish on both sides, making them fully reversible. The solid decking boards are available with or without grooves to accommodate hidden fastening systems. Colors include seasoned mahogany, rustic cedar, Cape Cod gray, earthtone, terra cotta, and desert sand, as well as two colors new to the MoistureShield product line: walnut and tigerwood. Like other MoistureShield decking products, the Vantage Collection contains a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled content and 60% pre-consumer recycled content. 866.729.2378. www.moistureshield.com.
Azek Building Products. In an exclusive partnership, the HIDfast hidden deck fastening system will be sold only through the Azek channel. The HIDfast system is the first collated air-driven hidden deck fastener system, the maker says, and works similar to hardwood floor installation. Using stainless steel fasteners and built-in spacers, the system installs fasteners through the edge of the decking and down to the joist at an angle, for a secure, screw-free decking surface. The fasteners are available in 2 1/2 or 3 inch lenghts, ideal for use with Azek Deck. The maker says the system can fasten 100 square feet of decking in as little as 10 minutes. 877.275.2935. www.azek.com.
Enduris. Known for its vinyl fencing, the maker has expanded its decking collection with the introduction of Ironwood to its cellular PVC decking product line. The new darker color, a rich red-brown, extends the line of low-maintenance Endeck decking. The co-extruded material is all PVC and features a two-sided natural woodgrain-embossed surface for easy reversibility. Designed to be scratch- and slip-resistant, Endeck carries a Class A flame spread. A proprietary manufacturing process gives Endeck a tighter cellular structure than other PVC products, the maker says, for improved performance. 888.329.7428. www.enduris.com.
Genova Products. Three variegated colors have been added to the Genovations Decking line. The solid PVC decking is now available in sandstone, walnut, and chestnut colorways for more aesthetic flexibility in deck design. Enhanced surface technology allows the manufacturer to incorporate authentic color variations of natural wood into every board without sacrificing performance. Genovations decking is designed to resist fading, staining, scratches, and mold. 800.521.7488. www.genovaproducts.com.
TimberTech. The ConceaLoc hidden fastening system has been expanded to include the ConceaLoc L-bracket, router bit, replacement screws, and gun pail. The L-bracket is a stainless steel multifunctional securing tool that eliminates face screws on starter boards and doubles as a butt seam clip to prevent the need for sister joists. The router bit offers an ideal solution to allow for hidden fastening on non-grooved planks. Custom desgined for cutting grooves in TimberTech solid deck boards, the bit can even be used when the board has already beem fastened to a joist. To deal with dropped or lost screws during installation, a bag of 50 replacement screws eliminates the need to buy extra screws in bulk. The ConceaLoc gun pail offers enough slips and screws to cover 500 square feet. Pail fasteners are designed to work with the new TigerClaw pneumatic installation gun. 800.307.7780. www.timbertech.com.
