Manufacturer Receives VAR-1011 from ICC-ES
July 22, 2010

Trex┬«, the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing and fencing, has received a Verification of Attributes Report (VAR-1011) from ICC Evaluation Service┬« (ICC-ES) under the Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation (SAVE) Program.

The VAR provides independent, third-party confirmation that Trex’s wood-alternative products are manufactured with a minimum of 95.4 percent recycled content. Trex is the first wood-alternative decking manufacturer to obtain an ICC-ES SAVE verification.

In addition to verifying the amount of recycled content in Trex products, the ICC-ES SAVE VAR also identifies how these products comply with the most prominent green rating systems and building standards. Designers, architects, builders and contractors can use this information to determine how they may qualify for LEED credits by specifying Trex products.
