Product Design Earns Honors For Trex

We don’t manufacture the best in outdoor living products for the awards, but it certainly is special when honors come our way. This week, Trex won three Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) from Design Journal, an international resource for interior designers, architects and facility managers.

A perennial winner in this prestigious program, Trex captured two Platinum Awards – the program’s highest honor – for the Trex® Outdoor Storage™ collection and for the Trex® Pergola™  “Air” design, a recent addition to the popular Pergola collection. Another Pergola design, “Vision”, was honored with an ADEX Gold Award.

The leader in the outdoor living industry, Trex is committed to design innovation. Combined with low-maintenance and high-performance features, these awards for design and aesthetics make Trex the brand of choice for design professionals.

Ice coolers and trash storage cabinets are just two of the new options in our Trex Outdoor Storage collection

Trex Outdoor Storage
From hidden ice chests to drawers that hold pillows and pool equipment, our outdoor storage collection maximizes space by providing extra room for backyard essentials in a practical yet beautifully elegant way. Our storage pieces are offered in all five of the Transcend Tropical decking shades, making mixing and matching easy. These durable products are made with a dense, low-maintenance resin that doesn’t warp, fade or crack. The interiors are made with adhesive-welded ¾” white PVC. Storage solutions include pull-out ice coolers that keep ice cold for days, cabinets and bench drawers as well as hampers and trash storage cabinets.
