Structural Composites

Written by 

Structural composites are engineered products made from plastic, wood, glass, or carbon fiber materials. The formed or extruded products have applications as outdoor deck floors, railings, fences, landscape timbers, cladding, siding, moulding, trim, and window or door frames. These low maintenance products are resistant to cracking and can be smooth or have a simulated wood grain. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, structural composites are shaped using typical woodworking tools.
