The introduction of plastic timber for pool and outdoor decks gives customers the appearance of wood without costly maintenance and repairs. Allpex’s new plastic decks come with an extended guarantee and professional installation.
In the past decade, PVC (polyvinylchloride) and composite materials played a prominent role in the decking industry. Manufacturers have found innovative ways to use composite materials and plastic to replicate the appearance of wood. Householders in Brazil resisted the use of plastic decks due to the unpredictable climate. But with vast improvements in technology, appearance and the minimal maintenance, more and more customers are taking the plunge and installing plastic decks.
Allpex’s imported materials are made from 100 percent recyclable plastic while maintaining the appearance of wood. The company acknowledges that plastic decks can be problematic in Brazil’s hot and humid climate. However, professional installers use measures to eliminate unstable decks caused from expansions and contractions that sometimes loosen the joints. Madeira plastica can also get very hot and radiate the heat absorbed, which may be uncomfortable in the height of summer. The upside is that madeira de plastico is maintenance-free, which far outweighs the minor disadvantages.
Included in Alltex’s premium line of products is Trex, imported from a manufacturer in the USA. Trex is a popular supplier known for their products’ durability and cost-benefit ratio. Special coatings on the surface of the materials make them resistant to scratches, discoloration and stains that are common in high traffic areas. Other popular brands include Nacional (designed to reduce rotting and ward off pests) and Coextrusão (designed to imitate wood’s sophistication without the maintenance).
Marc Lopez wanted a deck ecologico when the time came to replace his existing deck. He turned to Alltex for an ecological solution and is happy with the results. “I wanted an eco-friendly deck that was easy to maintain and the resourceful sales reps at Alltex showed me a few options. I settled on solid PVC coextrusion and received a 25-year warranty from fading and stains. So far I’m happy with the outcome – the workmanship is excellent and the deck materials have been resistant to the constant traffic.”
