Fiberon has launched Wildwood composite cladding, providing beauty and warmth of wood combined with the durability of high-performance, low-maintenance materials.
Wildwood composite cladding features an open-joint profile and is available in a variety of board lengths and widths for added design flexibility.
“Fiberon isn’t new to the cladding industry,” said Mark Ayers, senior vice president of marketing and product development for Fiberon. “Our deck boards have been used in cladding applications for thousands of projects across the globe. Wildwood is our first product designed specifically for cladding applications, and we’re proud to provide trade professionals with a premium product from a brand they trust.”
Wildwood composite cladding features rich, nature-inspired embossing and multi-tonal colors for superior wood emulation.
Two globally inspired collections – Eden and Sahara – feature on-trend color palettes. The Eden Collection is inspired by lush, tropical forests and features an array of exotic hues including Mora, Wenge, Meranti, Koa, and Tupelo. The Sahara Collection draws inspiration from arid, sandy landscapes and includes rich desert tones like Mulga, Sumac, and Palo.
Wildwood composite cladding features Fiberon’s exclusive PermaTech cap layer that protects against staining and fading, and a durable composite core that ensures exceptional resistance to rotting, cracking, insects and decay. Wildwood composite cladding will cut and install similar to real wood without the hassle, and does not require the same staining and painting maintenance that wood requires.
Featuring 94% pre- and post-consumer recycled content, Wildwood is free of toxic chemicals and is manufactured using sustainable processes. Wildwood composite cladding features a Class B fire rating and meets NFPA-268 to assist in meeting fire code regulations.
“We’re so excited for the launch of Wildwood composite cladding,” said Jim Christopherson, vice president of cladding, retail business and sales operations at Fiberon. “In addition to providing a durable, beautiful product designed specifically for cladding applications, we’re also offering design support and tools for architects including specs, BIM support, case studies, and more.”
Wildwood composite can be used by architects who want a long-lasting, maintenance-free, sustainable alternative to traditional wood cladding, offering a solution for projects that require the beauty of wood with long-term warranted performance.
Based in Maumee, Ohio, Fiberon manufactures wood-alternative decking, railing, cladding, and fencing distributed worldwide. The company is part of the Outdoors & Security division of Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc.
