NUSKU TROPIDECK COLOR RANGE
Much like Nusku Thermacor, our Tropideck product line will naturally transition to a silver-gray patina over an extended period of time. This does not impact the performance of the product, as it is strictly a change in aesthetic that can be addressed with refinishing.
NUSKU TROPIDECK WEATHERING
When natural wood products are exposure to rain, snow or moisture the extractives, including natural pigments can bleed out which in turn can lighten the color of the wood.
When Nusku Tropideck is installed exterior, the greatest impact to silvering out is ultraviolet rays. UV rays are responsible for breaking down lignin in natural wood products which in time transitions the fiber to silvery-gray.
NATURAL FIBER COLOR
Our Class A Certified exotic line is all natural solid lumber, and thus the color range is based on the natural characteristics of red balau which has a reddish hue but can included brown & yellow tones
Being a natural wood product, our customers can use a wide variety of finishes to achieve the desired look. The most common is letting the wood speak for itself by using a clear oil based sealer, but solid body stains are an option if modifying the finish color is preferred.
Nusku Tropideck can be installed with a more traditional option utilizing screws, but when a clean finish without seeing hardware is desired our customers install with a variety of hidden clip options. There are a wide range of hidden fasteners that work with the standard Thermacor profiles, but we highly suggest using the Exoclad & Exodeck hidden clips.
Rainscreen patterns have grown in popularity due to the clean look & easy installation options.
Hidden Rainscreen Clip
Decking is the primary application for our Nusku Tropideck because of the products density & durability.
