Maine Ornamental Post Caps

Superior Post Caps with a new brand!

It takes but a glance to see there's something special in a Maine Ornamental product. Working with materials that range from wood to copper, composite, vinyl and glass, Maine Ornamental creates custom decorative details that adorn decks, fences, porches, signs and mailboxes. And when you consider the generous color options associated with each product, it adds up to a menu of nearly 300 different styles of post caps.

Take for instance the Low Profile Solar Light. Skirt material in cedar or pressure treated pine supports a sturdy yet charming solar light framed in pewter, black or stainless steel. Whatever style you choose, the end result is impressive, with a solid and beautiful effect.

Not sure how many balusters to order for your deck?

 

Don't sweat it -- the new railing Baluster Calculator at DecksDirect figures it out for you.

 

It's easy to use, just enter the details for your project: total length of railing, post size and baluster type. Using your data, the calculator will figure the total number of balusters needed, based on typical building code requirements of less than 4" of space between balusters. (But please note, you should still confirm all applicable code requirements with your local building department before starting any deck project.)

The calculator is pre-loaded with product specs for standard round and square balusters, glass balusters, and other popular styles and sizes from manufacturers like Dekor, Deckorators, Fortress Iron, and more. So you won't get a generic result, but one tailored to the manufacturer and style of baluster you selected.

Powder-coated premium aluminum balusters are an exciting new contender in the baluster market, and Solutions Balusters makes its entry with high style and moderate pricing.

The company builds unique design features and options into its entire product line, like aluminum balusters with built-in basket accessories, powder coating over the ends of the balusters for additional weathering protection, and color options in satin finishes.

Their compete line of balusters includes traditional round and square designs, basket balusters, clear glass baluster panels, face mount and belly and bow styles. And with some states adopting new code requiring 42" rails, Solutions Balusters has a convenient option with 38" face-mount balusters, a length you won't find in many other manufacturer lines.

Their innovation extends to subtle style factors, especially when it comes to rail and baluster installation. Solutions gave their rail connectors a graceful, decorative profile which lends to the harmony of your deck appearance. And if you like the look of a glass baluster panel, you'll love the way Solutions designed their glass baluster connector shoes to conceal the installation hardware all on the inside.

Penofin - The World's Finest Wood Finish

Apr 02, 2010 | Posted in Product Spotlights By Store Owner

Penofin LogoPenofin, the World's Finest Wood Finish is now available from DecksDirect

 

 

Brazilian Rosewood Oil

Strong, flexible, water-resistant oil that is harvested from the seeds of the Brazilian Rosewood tree. Allows the wood to retain its flexibility. It creates no surface film. No trees are ever cut down to obtain this oil.

Transoxide Pigments

Penofin provides up to 99% ultraviolet protection. These pigments also penetrate into the wood protecting it from the inside out from the sun’s damaging rays. It adds a rich, transparent color to enhance the natural beauty of wood, highlighting the grain.

High-Grade Mildewcide

The finest possible mildewcide to retard growth of mold and mildew.

Penetration

Penofin’s formula penetrates deep into the wood. Other coatings lay on the surface and wear away after a few months. Because Penofin is a low-solid formula it penetrates, protecting wood beneath the surface.
Test any other wood finish against Penofin with our “blotter book” test instructions and see for yourself! Another benefit to Penofin’s lowsolid formula you never have to worry about lap marks. This makes application fast and easy for everyone!

Penofin & The Environment:

"Penofin® Performance Coatings Inc. is committed to the environment. We use Brazilian Rosewood Oil harvested from seed, carefully gathered, and then pressed and purified. This natural base creates a stain that penetrates deeper, preserving wood longer. This benign approach does not harm the environment. The oil, found only on the dry plains of Brazil, is the essential ingredient in Penofin. No other wood-finishing product contains this unique oil. We believe in keeping all the environments we touch safe. We believe in creating a safe environment for our workers. We do not create a waste stream in manufacturing. We believe in the continued search to find sustainably harvested ingredients. The use of these ingredients provides jobs without destroying the natural habitat. We believe that one way of caring for our environment is by wisely using our limited raw materials to create items of beauty, purpose, and permanence."
