Deceuninck North America Partners with McLean Lumber to Offer Clubhouse® PVC Decking and Elite Railing to its Customers

Partnership Further Demonstrates Deceuninck's Commitment to Western Expansion

MONROE, Ohio, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Deceuninck North America, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality systems for windows, doors and outdoor living, is pleased to announce its partnership with McLean Lumber, a two-step distributor who develops and provides unique products that range from PVC decking to specialty woods. Deceuninck will work with McLean to offer Clubhouse® PVC Decking and Clubhouse Elite Railing to its customers in the Calgary and Edmonton markets in Alberta, Canada. This also includes a portion of British Columbia.

"McLean Lumber is two-step distributor with an established network of lumberyards serving the Alberta market," said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. "Partners like McLean will enable us to continue to grow Deceuninck's Clubhouse distribution footprint while enabling builders, contractors and homeowners in western Canada to experience the value proposition that Clubhouse has to offer."

"Our customers know that we'll find the best product out there, so if we believe in it, they will, which makes Clubhouse an easy sell for us," said David Corney, co-owner of McLean Lumber. "We looked at many products. Clubhouse was the best option in terms of virtually no maintenance, durability, bold color and texture options, and the product's exclusive SunShield and Korelite technologies. Clubhouse's dual-sided deck boards are another value-added benefit for us, which keeps SKUs down for us and our retailers. We are very excited to be partnering with Deceuninck to bring Clubhouse Deck and Rail to western Canada."

Deceuninck North America's Clubhouse Decking is 100-percent PVC and contains no wood or wood fillers. It is formulated to be up to 25 percent lighter than most wood and composites, and its dense cell structure offers superior strength and solid underfoot feel with Deceuninck's Korelite™ technology. Korelite also helps to keep moisture out and helps reduce the opportunity for degradation from mold, mildew, freezing and thawing. SunShield® technology helps protect Clubhouse from the harsh effects of the sun, including UV resistance and fade protection, resistance to cracking and brittleness, and surface degradation. Clubhouse Decking does not require painting or staining. It features a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain protection backed by Deceuninck.

Deceuninck's Clubhouse Elite Railing System is engineered to be longer-lasting than painted wood and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain coverage. It is 100 percent recyclable and the low-maintenance nature of the product means no chemical cleaning, painting or staining is necessary. Available in white, walnut and black, Clubhouse Elite Railing's low-gloss, low-maintenance finish means that the product never needs to be painted. For extra protection, Deceuninck North America's exclusive SunShield® technology provides time-tested color retention with superior stain, mold and mildew resistance.

Clubhouse Deck & Rail has achieved code compliance with the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) for structural and product performance.
