MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH company, introduces new Meridian capped wood-plastic composite decking for a natural wood look with minimal upkeep. Meridian combines the moisture protection of MoistureShield’s Solid Core manufacturing process with its new TruTexture Surface that evokes the authentic look and feel of real wood.
MoistureShield’s TruTexture Surface produces a true wood-grain finish and reduced pattern repetition for a more natural look, with the added scratch resistance of a capped composite.
Meridian is available in three premium colors: Citadel, a cool Atlantic gray with a subtle patina; Shoreside, a subtly variegated golden sandy blonde; and Mariner, a timeless dark brown with rich undertones. Citadel and Shoreside offer proprietary CoolDeck technology, which reduces heat absorption by up to 35 percent compared to traditional capped composite boards in a similar color, for a more comfortable deck.
As with all MoistureShield deck products, Meridian features the proprietary Solid Core manufacturing process for protection against moisture absorption, warping, rotting and damage from insects. It is well-suited for installation in the ground, on the ground or even underwater. Meridian is offered in square edge and grooved 1 by 5.4 deck boards and in 12-, 16- and 20-foot lengths.
MoistureShield decking is proven in the field for 30 years with zero structural failures and is backed by a 50-year transferable structural warranty for all decking series.
