Trex announces new Transcend decking color
Trex has added a new color to its Trex Transcend decking collection: a light gray called Island Mist. This, silvery shade features realistic streaking that mimics the natural look and feel of aged tropical hardwood, and is designed to be a cooler complement to the three existing tropical-inspired shades and the five earth-tone Trex Transcend colors.
"The silvery patina of a well-worn -- and well-loved -- deck remains a popular look among homeowners and designers, as it lends a sense of timelessness and natural beauty to any outdoor living space," said Ronald Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. "Island Mist evokes all the romance and charm of this classic, distressed look, without the ongoing maintenance requirements or environmental consequences of wood."
The other eight Trex Transcend decking colors are Tree House (warm earth tone), Vintage Lantern (deep-burnished bronze), Fire Pit (spicy red), Gravel Path (pristine grey) and Rope Swing (a light taupe), Spiced Rum (earthy umber), Lava Rock (reddish-black) and Tiki Torch (light brown).
The Trex Transcend collection first debuted in spring 2010 and is designed to outperform wood, early-generation composite and PVC. The decking resists fading, staining, scratching and mold, and will not rot, warp, crack or splinter.
Trex Transcend decking also contains 95% recycled content and is certified by the Verification of Attributes Report (VAR-1011) from the International Code Council Evaluation Service.
