Uncommonly Sophisticated & Uniquely Refined, NOVA Nautilus Puts a Shine on Any Deck
Plymouth, MA, March 29, 2018– Atlantis Rail’s Nautilus Railing System is nothing new. It has been a customer favorite for years. They have now teamed the Nautilus System up with their new NOVA II aluminum post kits to create the NOVA Nautilus System and it’s stunning. It is even more affordable and easy to install.
The NOVA Nautilus System utilizes predrilled aluminum posts with a 2” stainless steel top and optional bottom rail. It features multiple color options of black, white or bonze to compliment any application. The rails are structural strength stainless steel so it can be configured with a top rail only or a bottom rail can be added. Cable spacing at 2-3/4” allows the posts to be spaced up to 6’ apart when using a cable stabilizer in the middle which further reduces the cost and expedites installation.
A proprietary sidemount fitting with an insulating gasket is used to mount the rails to the post, eliminating concern about potential issues in combining dissimilar metals. HandiSwage™ components hide the cable connections inside the post and the easy to use swage tool and cover nut sets provide an easy install and a finish look.
Atlantis Rail Systems distributes cable railing and glass railing systems through a network of value added distributors and dealers located throughout the United States and Internationally. Please contact an Atlantis Sales Representative to find a dealer near you or visit the Dealer Locator on the Atlantis Rail website.

ORLANDO, FL–(Marketwired – January 10, 2018) – (IBS Booth #W3440) — Newly formed Trex Commercial Products (TCP) will make its debut at the 2018 International Builders’ Show (IBS) with an impressive array of custom railing offerings designed specifically for commercial applications. With a variety of styles and material options that include glass, aluminum, mesh and cable, Trex’s entry into the commercial railing arena is aimed at introducing builders and architects to the breadth of what’s possible when the company’s legacy of innovation and high-performance is applied to commercial settings.
“From stadiums and large public works to universities and hospitals, no two commercial projects are alike – and their railing systems shouldn’t be either,” noted John Lewis, president and CEO of Trex Commercial Products. “Instead, Trex Commercial Products takes an individualized approach by designing, engineering and manufacturing custom railing solutions tailored to each specific project.”
Trex Commercial Products will showcase several of these solutions within the Trex Company booth (#W3440) at this year’s show, including:
Tensiline Cable Rail – A popular look at stadiums and other settings where sightlines are paramount, TCP’s Tensiline Cable Rail system is designed and constructed using stainless steel cables and a selection of stainless steel fittings and turnbuckles. The use of stainless steel cable allows for minimal sightline obstruction, while a variety of materials, finishes and colors are available to create the desired look for any project.
Gridguard™ Rail – An industrial look that offers strength and security, TCP’s Gridguard™ Perforated Rail and Mesh Rail systems are available in a variety of wire mesh panels and other infill materials, with flexible mounting methods that allow for use in nearly any location. A variety of materials, finishes, colors and infill attachment styles are available to meet specific facility requirements.
Line Rail – A sleek, contemporary style that offers the luxurious look of glass infill, the Line series is characterized by the clean, modern rod style standoff and glass mount. Builders can choose between top rail and handrail options, determine top-mount or fascia-mount surface attachment, and specify infill glass material, thickness and orientation for complete customization.
Track Rail – A popular interior look, Track Rail with glass infill provides a bright, airy atmosphere to any setting. The beauty lies in its subtlety, as the system is designed and constructed without the use of vertical balusters or posts between glass infill panels for high visibility throughout the space. The Track Rail system can be customized with multiple cladding options and glass types, including tempered, laminated, low iron, fritted, PVB interlayer, SGP interlayer, colored interlayer and patterned interlayer.
Dot Rail – The most distinguishable feature of the Dot Rail series is its unobtrusive circular glass mounts attached to TCP’s trapezoidal posts. Both handrail and top rail choices have three distinct rail standoff options creating more design flexibility – a rectangular base plate side mount for a clean mounting solution, a node-style side mount for a minimalistic installation look and an oval side mount base plate for a more linear, compact look.
“The Trex Commercial Products team has supplied railing for some of the largest projects in the country, and this wealth of experience provides us with the ability and expertise to achieve unrivaled customization and customer service,” said James E. Cline, president and CEO of Trex Company. “Through Trex Commercial Products, we aim to expand the relationship with builders and architects across the category. We’re thrilled to make our debut with such a strong line-up of core products that lay the foundation for future innovation within the commercial railing industry.”
Trex Commercial Products will be on display during IBS at Booth #W3440. To learn more about Trex Commercial products, visit www.trexcommercial.com.

SKOKIE, Ill., Jan. 9, 2018 – TimberTech® by AZEK® Building Products, No. 1 in premium decking, is debuting three new colors at the 2018 National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show from January 9th – 11th, 2018 in Orlando, Florida.
TimberTech’s Legacy Collection was the first hand-scraped decking in the capped wood composite category, taking a trend seen in interior hardwood flooring, and bringing it to the outdoors. After completing extensive research over the past year looking at consumer demand and design trends in outdoor living, TimberTech is introducing three new colors to its premium Legacy Collection. The additions include: Sequoia™, Espresso, and Whitewash Cedar™. Dedicated to providing homeowners with authentic, real-wood alternatives, the AZEK Building Products design team recognized an unmet need in the market for more dramatic designs and colors, including white decking, a color that has generated extremely positive initial feedback from customers.
“We are always listening to our contractors and homeowners to learn more about what is missing in the marketplace,” said Patrick Barnds, SVP of AZEK Building Products. “We are now offering our TimberTech capped wood composite decking in an extensive array of 16 colors, from three different collections and price points. Now more than ever, homeowners can find a color and finish that allows them to upgrade their current outdoor space while complementing their home’s existing aesthetic.”
Confident in its quality, TimberTech decking is also announcing a new warranty, upgrading from a 25-year to a 30-year limited warranty, complementing its industry-leading 30-year limited fade and stain warranty. With a superior protective polymer cap on all four sides of the board that eliminates any organic materials, TimberTech capped composites have the strength to battle almost anything Mother Nature brings. TimberTech decking is splinter free and is resistant to rot, mold, mildew and moisture damage.
Also at IBS, TimberTech will be unveiling a new fastening option with its hand-driven version of FUSIONLoc®, an exclusive fastener engineered for strength and precision.
