environmentally friendly composite decking
All the components used to manufacture Trex are recycled and reused, and the process to make the boards is environmentally responsible. Trex is made from reclaimed timber, wood and plastic which would otherwise have gone directly into landfill. As a result, Trex keeps some 272,000 tonnes of plastic and wood scrap out of landfills every year, so you can build an outdoor oasis that's friendly to the outdoors.
While Trex is a manufactured product it is designed to have a timber-like look to it, colour and grain will vary from board to board. The natural deck colours allow you to run free with furniture design options and add other features to create the perfect outdoor space.
When installing, it is recommended that boards be mixed up not just taken from the top of the bundle. This is particularly important when more than one pack is used on a job.

The Trex Company offers a range of complementing deck accessories such as lighting and balustrades. Design special features into your deck for a one of a kind deck.
