Incredible Choice comes with Incredible Beauty, Naturally

TapcoThere’s a secret why Clubhouse® Decking shows so well at parties, get-togethers, and as an icon of neighborhood envy. It’s in the way our deep, rich color is infused into each timber and the exclusive random graining process we created to mimic nature in its organic genius. Material scientists and tooling engineers developed an authentic woodgrain look that helps with a low-gloss, skid-resistant finish. And it’s also in a special bonus: our unique dual-color, dual-embossed options on every board that allow you to create multiple looks with ease.

Won’t Crack Under Pressure, Even if the Concrete Does.

MiTekOur structural concrete epoxy is designed for anchoring into concrete that is, or may become, cracked due to cyclic loading from wind or earthquakes. It's also a high performance formulate that is very appealing for general anchoring into concrete and may also be used for fully grouted CMU construction.

The extensive testing data and high loads that GEL7C has makes it a best in class epoxy. Couple this with the design software and this gives the designers the confidence they want when designing concrete anchorage.
