2020 International Builder's Show Outlook

Fortress Building Products to Launch Innovative Decking Line, Railing System Infills during January’s NAHB International Builders' Show

GARLAND, Texas— January 8, 2020— In 2020, Fortress Building Products continues to disrupt the status quo with their innovative, high-quality building solutions. Leading the charge in the building products space, Fortress will unveil breakthroughs in both the decking and railing industries at this year’s NAHB International Builders’ Show, January 21-23 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Builders attending the show can visit the Fortress Booth (#C3848) and marvel at the new ApexTM decking line, which boasts the latest in premium capping technology, along with new infills for Al13 HOMETM Aluminum Railing, which allow for complete customization.


At the show, Fortress’ team of experts will give building professionals a front-row seat to innovative product lines with daily in-booth demonstrations, including the brand new Apex deck boards. Forged by composite engineering, this line consists of a lightweight bamboo and cellular PVC core, capped by the highest grade of acrylic polymer for ultimate protection, allowing the deck boards to withstand even the harshest of climates. Backed by a 25-Year Warranty, the product is also fade-, stain-, scratch-, slip-, moisture- and fire-resistant, resulting in a deck that will last the test of time, while requiring minimal maintenance. What’s more, Apex comes in a variety of profiles and dual tone colors, for a personalized, natural look that will make a statement no matter the outdoor space.


Fortress will also be demoing Al13 HOME’s custom infills. The system itself is made up of aluminum panels with pre-attached brackets for easy railing installation, and Fortress further enhances the lightweight metal with FortressLock coating technology, engineered to weather the elements and provide years of maintenance-free enjoyment. Now, customers can fully personalize this durable railing product with game-changing infill options. Available in vertical cable or Pure ViewTM Glass inset (full or glass balusters), all infills offer a polished feel that don’t detract from views, while matching a customer’s desired aesthetic.


“We look forward to introducing both Apex decking and Al13 HOME Infill at NAHB,” said Toby Bostwick, Vice President of Product & Brand for Fortress Building Products. “Both are a case-in-point of how innovative technologies can bring about high-quality and high-performance for truly best in class products.”
