The shell technology found within each Trex Transcend board at Arbordeck helps protect the product from the elements. This is due to the technology using a protective shell, which encompasses a strong core on three sides.
Manufactured using a nine-element formulation, the shell is three times thicker than the industry standard and also gives the appearance of natural wood, thanks to its low-sheen finish.
Shell technology is used to cover three sides of the deck boards only, in order to allow the underside to breathe. This helps prevent surface separation and promotes long life and durability.
