NyloDeck is a new(ish) composite deck board made with 100% recycled, post-consumer nylon carpet fibers and Elastopor rigid polyurethane foam from BASF. The material doesn’t include wood or PVC like some other composites, and it’s made to be natural looking, light, easy to handle, and resistent to moisture, mold, and termites.
It made BuildingGreen‘s Top 10 products list last year.
Available in three colors, NyloDeck comes standard in 12′, 16′, and 20′ lengths (with 24′ custom). It’s suitable for new and replacement decks, boat docks, outdoor stairs, ADA ramps, park benches, outdoor seating, and other similar applications.
NyloDeck is made in Covington, Georgia (near Atlanta). If you were at Greenbuild, NyloDeck would have been on display in the BASF booth #3746S. If you noticed NyloDeck or have experience with the material, let us know what you think.
