Trex Commercial Products Debuts Custom Railing Solutions at IBS

PRESS RELEASE

“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.”

TimberTech® by AZEK® Building Products Announces Launch of Three New Decking Colors at 2018 International Builders’ Show

AZEK Building Products Logo

PRESS RELEASE

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.

 CABLERAIL STAINLESS STEEL CABLE ASSEMBLIES IDEAL FOR RAIL APPLICATIONS WITH A VIEW

Distinctive weather-tough railing infill alternative favored by architects,

builders, homeowners and commercial property owners

 

LAS VEGAS (January 22, 2013) – Today at the International Builders Show, Feeney, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high quality stainless steel and aluminum railing systems, features its inventive CableRail line including a wide selection of both standard and custom fabricated stainless steel cable assemblies. Made of beautiful, weatherproof 316-grade stainless steel with over 70 percent recycled content, these cables and components are suited to any railing application and offer a low maintenance, environmentally friendly, and visually unobtrusive alternative to commonly used wooden or metal picket infill.

 

Now celebrating 65 years in business, the company first introduced CableRail stainless steel cable assemblies in 1988 in response to a growing interest by architects and builders for modern, discreet railing infill products. The product line caught on quickly and expanded significantly. In fact, cable rail was named one of the 15 products that architects can’t live without in the May/June 2012 issue of Residential Architect magazine.  According to Taal Safdie of San Diego-based Safdie Rabines Architects, “Cable rail creates a delicate, transparent guard rail that doesn’t rust. It’s ideal for use with nice views, because it virtually disappears and is more affordable than glass. All the houses we did around our canyon have it, and we even plan to use cable rail in our own new home.”

 

CableRail Standard Assemblies are Feeney’s most popular cable product. They feature special field-installed Quick-Connect® cable fittings with patented automatic-locking jaws that make installations very fast and easy. These standard assemblies are available in pre-cut lengths from 5 feet to 70 feet for easy ordering and come in three cable sizes. The pre-cut lengths help save time by eliminating the need to take precise railing measurements. Installers simply select assemblies that are longer than needed and trim any excess in the field during construction.

 

“Simplicity of design, clean lines, ease of installation, and low maintenance set our distinctive CableRail infill cable system apart,” said Del Leutbecher, Director of Business Development at Feeney.  “Perfect for almost any exterior or interior application in residential or commercial settings, CableRail offers an innovative railing solution that creates an appealing design aesthetic wherever it is used.”

 

CableRail assemblies are perfect for applications where the view is all-important. The clean, finished look of these strong but slender cables is enhanced by special end fittings that are easily concealed into wood or metal posts. The result is a railing infill that is not only durable and attractive but also virtually invisible, creating an unimpaired view.  Feeney provides a 10-year warranty on CableRail cable and hardware. An experienced staff can provide assistance with product selection and technical support.

 

If you are attending the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas on January 22 – 24, 2013, please be sure to stop by the Feeney Booth #N1331 and see the CableRail line of standard and custom fabricated stainless steel cable assemblies and other Feeney products.
