Were also extremely conscious of the impact our manufacturing plants have on the environment. Our process uses less fuel to create our composite decking than other companies, and we recycle almost 100% of our waste. Doing the right things for the earth has been our passion since our parent company, A.E.R.T., was formed in 1988, and were committed to the philosophy of saving our earth for future generations.

Today, our process allows us to create durable, low-maintenance composite decking and fencing composed of 90% recycled material.

material. Weve invested heavily in technology and infrastructure to make recovered materials new again with superior features and benefits including total encapsulation of wood fibers. Our process is so unique, weve even received a U.S. patent for our production.

This is where Im supposed to make a joke about nuts. Im so above that.

ater-resistant MoistureShield Decking is made from 90% pre- and post-consumer recycled content. But because it is manufactured with A.E.R.T.s total encapsulation process, quality is never sacrificed. MoistureShield is proven to be one of the most durable composites in the industry. It has endured the test of time since inception with projects such as the South Padre Island Convention Center boardwalk, built in 1992 and still going strong.

MoistureShield is available in four colors, each enhanced by a beautiful, deep grain texture. For a dramatic look, mix colors to craft a stunning deck pattern.

MoistureShields proprietary technology begins with cleaning, pre-treating, heating and mixing wood fibers and polyethylene, and then continues with extrusion and cooling. We completely encapsulate the wood fiber prior to extrusion to ensure that MoistureShield will always live up to its name. And with a Limited Lifetime Warranty , youre guaranteed were serious about longevity and sustainability.

Have you ever eaten a plastic bag? Horrible!

Luckily my pals from MoistureShield are taking them out of my diet. Now I can focus on things that better suit my palate.

he Juniper tm Collection, our organic cedar line re-launched in 2008 celebrating 20 years in production, is composed of fibers from Juniper Mexicana, or Texas Cedar. Juniper is an aggressive, slow-growing species that is primarily heartwood, from which aromatic oils are extracted to create perfumes and many household supplies. Juniper is also used for fence posts and its ground fibers are used around the world for cement reinforcement in oil and gas drilling. But even with their practical uses, many more acres of Juniper trees have had to be eradicated due to the amount of water they extract from the aquifer. Juniper has caused shortages of water and grazing grasses for wildlife, as well as drinking water for the states growing population. In manufacturing, we use this discarded Juniper which was slated for burning and blend it with recycled polyethylene plastics.

The result is a natural, earth-friendly decking material with the strength, durability and beauty of all MoistureShield materials. And because of Junipers durability and natural resistance to pests and mildew, the Juniper line does not contain mildewcides or insecticides making it a truly organic decking material.

The Juniper Collections featured color is Ash, a light reddish brown cedar that naturally weathers to seacoast gray.

I tell you what, those wood decks make me sick.

Im a MoistureShield guy myself.
