MoistureShield Composite Decking Products Are Verified for Recycled Content

MoistureShield composite decking products from Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (A.E.R.T.) are now verified with 95% total recycled content – up from the 90% total recycled content previously listed in company literature.

A report issued by the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES®) provides independent verification of 57% pre-consumer recycled content and 38% post-consumer recycled content. The report also gives design and building professionals a fast and easy way to see how MoistureShield composite decking can help contribute towards rating points under leading green building programs.

“Composite decking brands vary greatly in their amount of recycled content,” says Brent Gwatney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MoistureShield. “We’ve always been a leader in making use of recycled materials and believe builders and homeowners value attractive, affordable and durable decking that is also green.”

Verification of MoistureShield products’ recycled content, along with their other environmental attributes – including bio-based materials use and insect resistance – is included in VAR-1015 issued under the ICC-ES SAVE™ Program (Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation™). The report shows at a glance the environmental categories for which the products are eligible to contribute points under the National Green Building Standard™, LEED® for Homes, LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations and California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen).

MoistureShield composite decking boards, railing and accessories are manufactured using A.E.R.T.’s unique processing technologies that fully encapsulate recycled wood fibers in recycled polyethylene plastic. The materials resist rot, decay, moisture and insects. Unlike other decking products, they can be placed on the ground, in the ground and in water.

The company’s products with 95% total recycled content include: MoistureShield Vantage Collection™ decking and fascia, MoistureShield Elite Collection™ decking and fascia, MoistureShield Essential Collection™ decking and fascia, MoistureShield railing, MoistureShield exterior trim, and EcoShield™ deck tiles. MoistureShield FR fire-rated decking contains 91% total recycled content.
