Trex to supply deck boards for Dubai Corniche project
Dubai, August 8, 2014
Trex Company, a US-based manufacturer of eco-friendly, high-performance wood-alternative decking and railing, has won a deal to provide deck boards for the new Jumeirah Corniche Development Project in Dubai.
The composite decking will make up the longest constructed boardwalk in the emirate, said a statement.
The corniche project is aimed at converting the 14 km of beachfront, spanning six residential communities between Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa to Burj Al Arab Hotel, into a recreational area that will encourage exercise and sporting activities among both residents and tourists, it said.
Slated for completion in November, it will feature a five-metre-wide walkway, a four-metre-wide jogging track, rest areas, retail kiosks and shaded benches overlooking the beach. It will be the longest in the territory and will link the planned Dubai Canal project.
W Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex, said: “We are honoured to have been chosen to be part of such a significant and beneficial endeavour. This project marks a major milestone for Trex as the corniche represents one of the largest uses of Trex decking in a single public installation.
“Selection of our Transcend product is a testament to the proven quality and durability of Trex offerings. We look forward to bringing the Dubai Ruler's innovative vision to life and sharing the Trex experience with the residents and visitors of the UAE through this meaningful development.”
“Our commitment to preserving and protecting the environment influences everything we do as a company,” noted Kaplan.
“Each year, we save 400 million pounds of plastic and wood from being sent to landfills. We are extremely proud to contribute to a cleaner environment and a healthier future for our consumers and communities around the world.” - TradeArabia News Service
