TruGrain: The Result Of Love and Truth

Posted by admin on Oct 10, 2014 4:52:11 PM
There are many ways to determine the authenticity of things, be they events, statements, products or relationships. The concept of fakes, forgeries, lies and deceit is not new to mankind (just look at Bigfoot, The Shroud of Turin or The Getty Kouros), but is nonetheless common place among our daily lives. Determining the truth of something starts with testing its claim, and ends with the subject coming through unscathed and unchallenged. Perhaps the concept of love is the best acronym for this; if love is real, if it is true, than it will hold up when tested, scrutinized or called into question. If it is not, then it will crumble under pressure, decay and fade away. The blending together of these two phenomenon, love and truth, can often result in some of the best things we ever experience in life; for if you have love and truth on your side, so too do you have honesty, and your sense of right over wrong justified. Believe it or not, these two things often co-exist in the world of outdoor living as well. If you love what you do, have a passion for its outcome and stay true to the process, then success is often there to greet you on the other side. Such is the case with the newest product available on the market from Westech Building Products, TruGrain™ made with Resysta®.

Lava Fire Tables: A Natural Evolution

Posted by Tim on Mar 17, 2014 11:37:58 AM
“Heat by day, heat by night”. If only that could be a guaranteed notion, life would be wonderful, wouldn’t it? Of course, winters in Canada are brutal, frigid and unbearable. Each day, as I scrape the ice off my Jeep, shovel seemingly endless piles of snow and de-thaw the numbness from my fingers, I close my eyes and come to the only logical conclusion I can: whoever first settled upon this great land, definitely did it during the summer. They came and saw the wide open prairies, beautiful mountains and unique animals, and said to themselves: “ Now THIS is a place I want to call home!” So they built houses, planted crops and began life in this northern Eden, thanking their lucky stars each day for the fortune that was their surroundings. Until winter came…and mass hysteria ensued. What had happened to their beautiful land, they wondered? Their water had turned into rock, their days had gotten shorter, and this weird white stuff started falling from the sky (and it was cold!). They tried to leave but couldn’t, it was just too desolate to make it very far. They needed a solution, something that could help them survive this soulless territory while looking forward to better days ahead. But what? What could make their world hotter, provide a feeling of warmth, keep out enemies and help them eat? Of course…they needed fire!

It’s official: The Deck Store is going commercial!

Posted by admin on Aug 1, 2013 12:10:05 PM

Throughout the history of man, we have achieved certain milestones that have altered the landscape of history forever. The invention of the wheel, electricity, and My Pakage brand underwear immediately come to mind…though I guess rubber and plastic are pretty historic too. Oftentimes these revelations in thinking are simple concepts that have a larger impact than originally planned (like when Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin). I mean, who knew that not cleaning up after yourself before going on vacation could literally save lives?

It is in this spirit of innovation and achievement, that The Deck Store is proud to present to you its newest business venture: The Deck Store Commercial Division! Concentrating solely on commercial designing, building and supplying, the Commercial Division is your new one-stop-shop for total project completion.

Especially when that roof houses the industry leaders in outdoor living spaces (*cough* Deck Store *cough*).

Our areas of expertise and outdoor solutions

Resysta® One Material, Endless Possibilities

Water resistant, sustainable and almost identical to tropical wood – all these characteristics open a variety of possibilities in using Resysta. Outdoor furniture, floor coverings and decks of ships are just the beginning. Further examples are house facades, wellness and wet areas. Resysta is not subject to any fluctuations in size caused by humidity and therefore is perfectly suitable for surface treatment. Whatever the future will look like – it is made of Resysta.

Resysta - The Future Material

Already today, Resysta meets tomorrow's technical and ecological demands. Owing to the high durability and sustainability Resysta offers, completely new applications are possible. The fibre reinforced hybrid material is produced of approx. 60% rice husks, approx. 22% common salt and approx. 18% mineral oil, which makes it both environmentally friendly as well as extremely weather resistant against sun, rain, snow or salt water. At the same time, Resysta requires minimal care and offers the look and feel of wood. Water resistant surfaces with the look of wood are Resysta's future. Wait and see!

Minimum Care, Maximum Look

Resysta is sophisticated as far as its look is concerned, but not very demanding in maintenance. The fibre reinforced hybrid material is absolutely water resistant. Therefore, cracks and splinters are a thing of the past. Also, insects and fungi cannot harm Resysta. In terms of maintaining Resysta, the most important thing is: lean back and enjoy!

A Good Feeling With Resysta

Resysta does not only look like wood - it also feels like it. In order to achieve the typical "tropical wood feeling" a special procedure is applied. To touch Resysta does not only feel good, it also surpasses nature's model in this respect. Thanks to its special composition, the surface stays free from cracks and splinters in the long term. Injuries caused by wooden splinters are therefore a thing of the past. Even after years, the future material ensures an agreeable feeling.

Applications

All the very exceptional properties make Resysta extremely resistant to weather influences like sun, rain, snow and ice, salt- and chlorine-water. Resysta does not swell, crack, splinter or rot. This we guarantee for 15 years.
