Wood-Alternative Decking Manufacturer Trex Obtains ICC-ES SAVE Verification

Trex Company, the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing and fencing, has received a Verification of Attributes Report (VAR-1011) from the International Code Council Evaluation Service® (ICC-ES) under the Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation (SAVE) Program™.

The VAR provides independent, third-party confirmation that Trex’s wood-alternative products are manufactured with a minimum of 95.4 percent recycled content. Trex is the first wood-alternative decking manufacturer to obtain an ICC-ES SAVE verification.

“Receiving verification on the recycled content of our products from an organization as respected and recognized as the ICC-ES creates additional credibility among both our professional partners and consumers,” said Kyle Lancaster, Director of Technical Services for Trex. “In a time when ‘green washing’ is a common term, this verification proves that Trex is the real deal in terms of our environmentally conscious products and practices.”

All of Trex’s wood-alternative products have been verified by ICC-ES SAVE – including the new Trex Transcend® high-performance decking, the Trex Accents®, Trex Brasilia® and Trex Contours® decking lines, Trex Designer Series Railing® and Trex Seclusions® and Surroundings® fencing lines. The indicator “VAR #1011” soon will appear on packaging for these collections.

In addition to verifying the amount of recycled content in Trex products, the ICC-ES SAVE VAR also identifies how these products comply with the most prominent green rating systems and building standards. Designers, architects, builders and contractors can use this information to determine how they may qualify for LEED credits by specifying Trex products.

“Trex was built on the use of sustainable materials and green manufacturing processes, and this commitment to being eco-friendly still shapes our corporate philosophy,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO for Trex. “As the first wood-alternative decking manufacturer to receive the ICC-ES SAVE verification, we are proud to be an industry leader in environmental stewardship – and we will continue to use the maximum amount of recycled materials in our products, while maintaining our high performance standards.”
