Trex to deck up longest boardwalk

September 2014

TREX Company, a US-based brand and a global leader in composite decking, has been chosen to provide its high-performance deck boards for what will be the longest constructed boardwalk in the UAE.

The new Jumeirah Corniche Development Project in Dubai aims to convert the 14 km of beachfront into a more vibrant recreational area that encourages exercise and sporting activities among both residents and tourists.

Slated for completion this November, the project will feature a 5-m-wide walkway, a 4-m-wide jogging track, rest areas, retail kiosks and shaded benches overlooking the beach.

The Corniche will be the longest in the territory and will link with the planned Dubai Canal Project.

“This project marks a major milestone for Trex as the corniche represents one of the largest uses of Trex decking in a single public installation,” said Ronald W Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex Company, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of eco-friendly, high-performance wood-alternative decking and railing.

“Selection of our top-of-the-line Transcend product is a testament to the proven quality and durability of Trex offerings,” he added.

Trex said it was chosen for the project due to its unparalleled product aesthetics and performance, its environment-friendly manufacturing processes, and its unique ability to deliver against the stringent demands of the project.
