COMPOSITE FENCING LEADER
Since 1996, Trex has invented, defined and perfected composite fencing with a lineup of low-maintenance, high-performance products that fundamentally change the way we live outdoors. Trex fencing was introduced in 2005 to meet the demand for a more durable, more natural looking alternative to vinyl fencing while still meeting the criteria for low maintenance. With Trex composite fencing, you can be at ease in knowing that our well established brand, backed by its 25-year residential limited warranty, can be trusted to meet the demands for a fence that will last and continue to look attractive for many years.
HOW TO TELL IF IT’S GENUINE TREX COMPOSITE FENCING
The first thing everyone notices about Trex fencing is its unique design. The simulated board-on-board look gives it character in a way that a standard wood or vinyl fence do not. The top and bottom rails were designed specifically to provide a “picture-frame” element that catches the eye, and the deep rich colors have a matte surface that does not reflect light in the same way other manufactured products do.
Besides the unique beauty of a Trex fence, upon close scrutiny you will also see why Trex is a structurally superior product. Great care was taken during design and testing to ensure the fence was sound from the reinforced concealed brackets, to the engineered aluminum support rail, to the unique method in which the pickets interlock. Fences are only as strong as their posts. The Trex fence post is one of a few standalone composite components that does not require an internal support such as a galvanized steel insert or a 4×4 wood post.
We make Trex green fencing eco-friendly composite fencing from an innovative blend of 96% recycled wood and plastic—that’s almost the whole thing. And we’ve been this way for more than 20 years, well before green was a buzzword. Because in the end, all of us want to look out on our fences and know that we’ve done our part. As one of the largest plastic recyclers in the U.S., Trex saves 400 million pounds of plastic and wood from landfills each year. In addition to contributing to a healthier environment, our eco-friendly composite fences also contribute to LEED points—not to mention your good karma.

Reclaimed wood that would otherwise end up in a landfill finds its way into Trex high-performance composite materials. By using reclaimed sawdust, we never have had to cut down a tree to make our products. Ever.
The recycled wood in our fences is combined with recycled plastic from a variety of sources ranging from the overwrap on paper towels to dry cleaner bags, sandwich bags, newspaper sleeves, and grocery and shopping bags. The average 100-linear foot Trex composite fence contains 140,000 recycled plastic bags!
Trex’s proprietary, eco-friendly processing method eliminates the use of smoke stacks. Also, our factory runoff and refuse are recycled back into the manufacturing line. Our trailers even run on vegetable-based oil hydraulics.
THE BIG PICTURE
Trex works along with other U.S. Green Building Council members to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated with the goal of creating environmentally and socially responsible spaces that improve the quality of life.
When it comes to building a fence, it’s worth thinking long-term so you know you are choosing the right fence. While some costs are simple, there are others that merit serious consideration.
