Fiberon introduces new colors for Pro-Tect

Demand in the wood-alternative decking market is driven by aesthetics, according to Fiberon marketing director Edie Kello.

Fiberon, the manufacturer of PVC and composite decking and railing products, is introducing an expanded color palette for the new Pro-Tect capped composite decking line. The new Pro-Tect Chestnut and Gray Birch colors add exotic aesthetics to low- maintenance outdoor living products.

The strong, rigid core of Pro-Tect Decking is encased on three sides in a patent-pending, non-organic surface material that is extremely resistant to staining, fading, scratches and mold, according to the company.

The new product carries an "entry level price point," the company said. It also carries a 20-year warranty for performance, stain and fade.
