    Decking

    trex composite decking details

    Why is Trex Transcend WPC decking so good?

    Trex Transcend decking is a solid, dense, stable deckboard with exceptional scratch and stain resistance. It has superior fade resistance and a realistic wood grain effect.

    Unlike hollow WPCs, Transcend will not shatter, curl or splinter. It is covered with a super hard polymer shell which is three times the thickness of the industry standard.

    It’s solid core is manufactured using a nine element formulation giving it a durable and stable performance. It is covered on three sides with a polymer shell to protect it from scratches and puncturing. This protects the upper and side surfaces completely, but allows the WPC material to breathe.

    The boards have a low sheen, natural wood grain appearance and good slip resistance. They are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic in the long-term.

    It has enhanced resistance to colour fading and has superior UV resistance. Trex Transcend carries a 10-year performance warranty for commercial applications.

    There is a suite of Trex connection compatible fixings and clips to secure the boards to joist bearers along with Wallbarn’s other substructure products.

    The side fixings mean there is no surface puncturing of the boards. This makes Transcend suitable for bare feet.

    Why is Trex Transcend so environmentally friendly?

    Trex Transcend is a truly recycled product being manufactured from 95% recycled material. This means 95% of every element in the production and packaging process is from recycled sources.

    The wood element comes from reclaimed sawdust, meaning no trees are felled for the purpose of making this product. Trex proudly boasts that in its 25 year history of WPC production it has not felled a single tree to make its decking boards. What other manufacturer can say that?

    The plastic element within the WPC also comes from a recycled source, and even the plastic packaging is from recycled material.

    Trex is a member of U.S. Green Building Council and was the first company in the wood-alternative decking industry to receive an International Code Council Evaluation Service ‘SAVE Verification for Recycled Content’. Trex states clearly that it every year it saves over 360,000 tonnes of wood scrap and plastic film from going to landfill and recycles 1.5 billion plastic bags per annum, through its innovative and industry leading production facilities and techniques.

    Why is Trex Transcend decking more ethical?

    Trex Transcend has been manufactured in USA since 1996 and has a long track record of superior performance. This brings reliable, more robust logistics and better corporate responsibility.

    Much of the WPC and composite decking and cladding materials nowadays is manufactured in China and the Far East. This has brought benefits in terms of pricing but does have downsides:

    1. DISTANCE
    The sheer distance between UK and the Far East of the globe means extended supply lines.

    a. The distance between USA and UK is far shorter, leading to faster transit and less carbon miles and environmental benefits.

    b. Interruptions in the logistics can also cause chaos, just consider the Suez blockage in early 2021 when almost all shipping imports either stopped altogether or had to divert around Africa leading to massive delays.
