Natures Composites Sets New Gold Standard for Environmentally-Friendly Decking and Fencing

TORRINGTON, WY--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) - Natures Composites is redefining the decking and fencing industry as the first company to invent, manufacture and distribute revolutionary exterior products made from wheat straw and recycled plastics.

Sold under the product names "TerraFence" and "TerraDeck," and comprised of 94 percent rapidly renewable and reclaimed materials, this highly sustainable option proves that green also can achieve the gold standard for price and performance.

Currently, there is no other composite alternative for fencing on the market, and nearly all major composite decking manufacturers offer products that use wood fiber along with a combination of recycled and virgin plastics -- putting Natures Composites in an innovative new class of lumber alternatives. Benefits include stronger, longer-lasting, affordable, and environmentally-friendly fencing and decking material that better resists moisture, insects and sunlight with minimal maintenance required. 

"Offering a sustainable product alone isn't enough for today's homeowner. Price, style and great performance are more important than ever, giving our products some clear advantages," said Heath Van Eaton, vice president of Natures Composites.

TerraFence and TerraDeck systems are available in a variety of styles for residential and commercial use. The company's products are an average of 10 to 30 percent lower in cost compared to other composite manufacturers. While slightly more expensive than cedar, TerraFence and Terra decking products are available in six color choices which don't require staining, sealing or painting -- delivering greater value and reduced labor and repair costs.

Natures Composites' innovative use of highly renewable, locally sourced materials offers exceptional environmental benefits. Wheat straw, which has long been considered a byproduct of the agriculture industry, is put to productive use instead of wasted. Rather than wood, wheat is rapidly renewable, grown and harvested annually, and readily available from regional farmers.

Natures Composites sources its recycled plastic from nearby U.S. based recycling companies, providing a market for this growing supply stream. This combination of strong wheat fiber and recycled plastics ensures the product will not splinter or crack, and offers protection from elements including moisture, UV, insect and rot damage without having to use or apply harmful chemicals, paint, stain or sealant.

With a 20-year warranty, Natures Composites materials are as easy to work with and install as natural wood. More information about product availability can be found at
