Fortress Introduces Customizable Deck Kits

Fortress Building Products has added customizable Deck Kits to its line-up of outdoor living solutions. Fortress Deck Kits include steel deck framing, decking and railing in a complete package for a simplified deck category ordering experience and installation process.  

 Fortress Deck Kits include all of the products, hardware and components needed to build a standard 12′ x 12′ deck. Each deck is supported by Fortress’ Evolution steel deck framing system, which is backed by a 25-year limited manufacturer warranty and received a Class-A Fire Rating through Intertek for superior fire resilience. 

 To accommodate specific project needs, customers can choose from a freestanding configuration or an attached-deck option, and can opt to include Fortress’ compatible steel stair system.  

 Resting on top of the steel frame, Apex capped bamboo-PVC composite decking features non-repeating grain patterns, enhanced wood grain textures and rich, vivid color choices like Brazilian Teak and Himalayan Cedar. With UV-, fade- and moisture-resistive properties, Apex is designed to endure the effects of weathering and does not require staining or resealing to preserve its beautiful appearance.  

 Al¹³ PLUS aluminum railing, HULK fasteners, color matched screws and related hardware are also included with each kit to assure quality installation.  

 By extending its newest offering to leading home improvement retailers, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Wayfair, Fortress can offer residential contractors and DIY homeowners quick and convenient avenues to purchase an all-in-one deck system. 

 “Deck Kits allow consumers to shop decking as they see the category, eliminating the unnecessary time, confusion and frustration often associated with the traditional material specification/ordering process,” said Glenn Coffee, director of Channel Sales, Retail & E-Commerce, Fortress Building Products. 

 The outdoor building products manufacturer will be introducing additional Deck Kits in the future to meet demand for other standard sizes, styles and material preferences.
