Trex Debuts New Trex Transcend® Board Profiles


Two New Profiles Provide Incremental Opportunities, Design Flexibility

WINCHESTER, Va., Oct. 5, 2010 – Trex Company, the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing, fencing and trim products, recently announced that it will continue to expand and innovate the high-performance Trex Transcend® line with the addition of new deck boards in 2”x6” and 2”x4” profiles. These line enhancements are the direct result of feedback from the professional channel.

“Trex Transcend decking and railing has received tremendous industry support due to its unprecedented combination of performance and aesthetics,” said Adam Zambanini, director of marketing for Trex. “With the introduction of two new board profiles, we will be able to further maximise the marketshare of this product portfolio – and also help our industry partners leverage new application opportunities.”

Both new boards will be offered in all four of the current Trex Transcend colours – Vintage Lantern, Tree House, Gravel Path and Fire Pit. The 2”x6” deck board is an ideal solution for many commercial applications – including boardwalks, marinas and docks. It will be stocked in 12’, 16’ and 20’ lengths and available in 32-piece units. Suitable for the increasingly popular “over the rail” applications, the 2”x4” deck board will be stocked in 12’, and 16’ lengths and available in 48-piece units.

“By launching each new board in reduced bundle packs, we’re making it possible for our dealers and distributors to increase productivity and profitability by moving more product in less time,” said Zambanini. “The new boards also will provide more design options to our TrexPro® installers and their customers.”

The revolutionary Trex Transcend collection first debuted in spring 2010 and is guaranteed to outperform wood, composite and PVC for decades. Each deck board features a proprietary nine-element surface formulation that produces a natural, wood-like grain pattern with a lustrous satin finish that feels comfortable underfoot. Engineered with an exclusive low-sheen, high-traffic formulation, Trex Transcend decking resists fading, staining, scratching and mould – and will not rot, warp, crack or splinter. Upkeep is hassle-free and requires no sanding, staining or painting. In fact, spills wash off easily with just soap and water. The entire Transcend decking collection is also backed by a 25-year Limited Fade and Stain Warranty that is unprecedented in the industry.
