Fiberon announced that it has added Bamboo to its lineup of color offerings for Wildwood composite cladding.
Bamboo will be added to the Sahara Collection alongside Mulga, Sumac and Palo – all inspired by arid, sandy landscapes and rich desert tones. Bamboo is a light blonde oak color that adds a subtle, sandy hue to the Wildwood cladding color palette and features distinctive gradients that mimic the dynamic shading of natural bamboo.
“Lighter cladding colors are trending in the industry, so when our customers began requesting a lighter Wildwood option it seemed like a no-brainer to add Bamboo to the collection,” said Mark Ayers, senior vice president of marketing and product development for Fiberon. “It is important for us to listen to our partners, and we are excited for the continued success and evolution of Wildwood.”
Wildwood is made from 94% mixed recycled wood fiber and plastic content otherwise destined for landfills and incinerators. Fiberon said that Wildwood is perfect for architects who want a long-lasting, nearly maintenance-free, more sustainable alternative to traditional wood cladding, offering a solution for projects that require the beauty of wood with long-term warranted performance.
Wildwood features an open-joint profile and is available in a variety of board lengths and widths for added design flexibility. It also features a durable composite core that ensures exceptional resistance to rotting, cracking, insects and decay. It will cut and install similar to real wood without the hassle and does not require the same staining and painting maintenance that wood requires.
In addition to the Sahara collection, Wildwood is available in the Eden Collection, which includes Mora, Wenge, Meranti, Koa and Tupelo – all of which are inspired by lush, tropical forests. Both nature-inspired collections feature rich colors, realistic textures and the organic warmth and beauty of real wood.
