We see you. You are the maverick on the front line, working hard to bring your customer’s decking project to life. You’re breaking out of boxes to solve design problems and scouring the marketplace to ensure the use of resilient, refined outdoor products. It’s a responsibility you take seriously.

We know the challenges you face. That’s why we innovate. Our willingness to push boundaries is how we came to engineer a Total Solution of product offerings for any type of decking application. Fortress® decking, railing and framing systems all work together to achieve an integrated system, but they can also stand alone. Each offers an uncomplicated installation process, minimal maintenance and unparalleled durability.

Take a closer look at how the Fortress Total Solution is designed to give you and your customers peace of mind now and down the road.

Forever boards. Never boring. A cost-effective option that doesn’t sacrifice on performance, Fortress® Infinity I-Series composite decking delivers 2x the strength of traditional materials despite being 40% lighter than its competitors. The I-Series offers increased slip resistance, improved heat dissipation through its historically engineered profile and higher moisture resistance through its unmatched density.

Fortress® Apex™ PVC decking utilizes a proprietary tri-extrusion process that delivers the beautiful look of tropical hardwoods. It utilizes a revolutionary lightweight core made from bamboo and cellular PVC. The boards’ cutting-edge design allows it to expand and contract about 25% less than other decking products, providing a more consistent, uniform appearance. Its resin caps afford the highest slip-resistance in any climate—when tested by the Wet-Barefoot Inclining Platform Test, Apex achieved the highest classification.

Never a barrier to your customer’s vision. With Fortress railing solutions such as Al¹³ HOME™ residential aluminum railing, your customers don’t have to trade form for function. This railing solution offers a robust list of infill options such as glass, steel, aluminum, picket and cable. Premium powder-coated Accent Top Rails can be easily attached, creating an eye-catching continuous perimeter. With increased design flexibility and inherent system strength, it’s a solution your customers can lean on.

Rot? We think not. Today’s decking and railing solutions are engineered to last 25 years or more. So, why are you still framing with wood? Take a defying leap and choose Evolution steel deck framing. The interlocking joist and ledger system lets you build sturdy, safe decks with less effort. For added peace of mind, the light-gauge steel utilized in Evolution framing ensures straight, uniform pieces that build flat and stay flat. A powder-coated finish provides increased corrosion-resistance and a more finished look. And, first in the industry, the steel stair system components and brackets work with Evolution joist and beams to provide quick, easy assembly.

Like you, Fortress never settles. We challenge the status quo. That’s why our products work to protect your reputation and peace of mind while providing best-in-class solutions for your customers.
