MoistureShield®, a division of Oldcastle APG®, a CRH Company, has introduced new Meridian™ capped wood-plastic composite decking for a natural wood look with minimal upkeep. Meridian combines the moisture protection of MoistureShield’s Solid Core manufacturing process with its new TruTexture™ Surface that evokes the authentic look and feel of real wood. MoistureShield’s TruTexture Surface produces a true wood-grain finish and reduced pattern repetition for a more natural look, with the added scratch resistance of a capped composite.
With a beautiful, durable aesthetic, Meridian is available in three premium colors: citadel, a cool Atlantic gray with a subtle patina; shoreside, a subtly variegated golden sandy blonde; and mariner, a timeless dark brown with rich undertones. Citadel and shoreside offer proprietary CoolDeck® technology, which reduces heat absorption by up to 35% compared to traditional capped composite boards in a similar color, for a more comfortable deck.
As with all MoistureShield deck products, Meridian features the proprietary Solid Core manufacturing process for protection against moisture absorption, warping, rotting, and damage from insects. It is well-suited for installation in the ground, on the ground, or even underwater. MoistureShield decking is backed by a 50-year transferrable structural warranty for all decking series.
