ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MoistureShield®, a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, and a manufacturer of innovative composite decking and railing, has joined forces with BlueLinx Holdings Inc., a leading distributor of building and industrial products with more than 50 locations nationwide. Headquartered in Marietta, GA, BlueLinx will distribute the full MoistureShield composite decking product line from their Atlanta, Georgia and Chicago, Illinois distribution centers.
The MoistureShield product line features Vision® capped composite decking with a modern, variegated appearance and the exclusive DiamondDefense™ capped surface. MoistureShield also features its unique CoolDeck® technology, for select products, which reduces deck board surface temperatures by up to 35% compared to conventional capped composites. Other products include Infuse® decking, a realistic wood-grain finish with the ability to withstand total submersion in water; and Vantage®, an uncapped composite with the workability of wood. All MoistureShield decking features the Solid Core Difference™ for advanced strength and moisture resistance.
MoistureShield composite decking and railing is manufactured from 95 percent recycled content, diverting tens of millions of pounds of plastic and wood scrap from landfills annually. It can be installed directly on the ground, in the ground or under water. The line is backed by an industry-leading warranty against decay, rot and termite damage.
