MoistureShield announced that its Meridian capped wood composite decking has been named a 2024 Sustainable Product of the Year by Green Builder Media.

“The Sustainable Products of the Year are a combination of submissions and products that our editorial team has identified,” said Craig Coale, publisher at Green Builder Media. “In general, Sustainable Product of the Year selections represent today’s most innovative products that make homes more efficient, resilient, healthy, intelligent and safe.”

MoistureShield’s composite decking products (not including Stratos Composite Enhanced PVC Decking) are almost entirely made from recycled materials, with post-consumer plastic, industrial plastic, wood fibers and other recycled content accounting for 95 percent of its Vision, Meridian, Elevate and Vantage boards’ composition. A leader in its category for innovation and sustainability, MoistureShield decking contributes to LEED green building certifications, diverts 27 million pounds of plastics from landfills and recycles more than 65 million pounds of wood fiber every year — sparing the equivalent of 15,000 trees.

“We believe in doing our part to support sustainable solutions through innovation,” said Matthew Bruce, vice president of sales at MoistureShield. “We have engineered our processes to reuse materials in order to best serve our customers while catering to our impact on the environment.”

Meridian decking is available in four colors that feature an authentic woodgrain finish, along with MoistureShield’s proprietary Solid Core manufacturing process for protection against moisture absorption, warping, rotting and damage from insects. In addition, Meridian offers a TruTexture Surface for superior scratch resistance and CoolDeck technology to minimize heat absorption.
