(MSDS) contain information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity, and environmental) in a given product. They also provide instructions on how to work safely with products that have hazardous chemicals. The data sheet available for Trex wood-polymer products designate it as stable with no significant physical/chemical or environmental hazards. As with any material, when working with Trex, take similar precautions as one would take when building with wood. Sawdust can be an irritant if inhaled or if exposed to eyes. Wear proper protection and use appropriate construction practices. Note: Trex Fencing has the same properties as the Trex Accents decking line that is denoted in the MSDS.
Acoustical Sound Rating
Acoustical Testing (External)
Trex Seclusions was submitted to a sound transmission loss test to evaluate acoustical properties. Intertek, the world’s largest testing agency, performed the evaluation. While a masonry wall is superior for this specific function, Trex Fencing is frequently used as a barrier because it provides a level of sound abatement needed for moderate reduction without the cost, construction limitations, and lack of appeal inherent in a concrete or block wall.
International Code Council
ICC-ES VAR Environmental Report (External)
The International Code Council (ICC) is a non-profit association responsible for the development of model codes and standards that are used for the construction process. The ICC’s International Building Code defines standards for designing, building, and compliance of structures for such elements as safety and sustainability. This report evaluates the content of Trex composites to provide information on the recycled content of the material. The report contains details on the eligibility of Trex recycled materials to the U.S. Green Building Council criteria for LEED point contribution. Learn more about Trex and LEED point contribution.
