To help builders and decking contractors better target their individual customers’ specific deck design needs and budgets, Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (A.E.R.T.) introduces the MoistureShield Vantage Collection. The new environmentally friendly wood-plastic composite decking line balances performance and cost, while offering the green-building benefits of other MoistureShield decking and railing products.
Deck planks in the MoistureShield Vantage Collection are 1” by 6” (1” by 5.5” actual dimensions) and are embossed with a realistic wood grain finish on both sides, making them fully reversible. Building professionals can order the solid decking boards with or without grooves to accommodate hidden fastening systems. Colors include: Seasoned Mahogany, Rustic Cedar, Cape Cod Gray, Earthtone, Terracotta, and Desert Sand, as well as two new colors to the MoistureShield Line – Walnut and TigerWood. Like other MoistureShield decking products, the Vantage Collection contains a minimum of 38% post-consumer recycled content and 57% pre-consumer recycled content.
MoistureShield composite decking materials and composite decking accessories are manufactured using AERT’s unique processing technologies that encapsulate recycled wood fibers in recycled polyethylene plastic. They are resistant to rot, decay, moisture and insects, and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. MoistureShield products exceed the requirements for landscape decking published in the LEED® for Homes green building standard.
