High temperatures can make outdoor activities uncomfortable, especially when you want to enjoy your deck during the summer months. Traditional decking materials often absorb and retain heat, creating an uncomfortably hot surface that discourages use during peak sunny hours.

Enter MoistureShield CoolDeck technology. This innovative technology built into MoistureShield composite deck boards is designed to reduce heat absorption. This advanced technology keeps the deck surface cooler, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space comfortably, even on the hottest days.

What is CoolDeck Technology?

CoolDeck technology is integrated into MoistureShield Vision and Meridian capped wood composite decking lines. It reduces heat absorption by up to 35% compared to standard composite decking materials of similar colors. This technology ensures the deck surface remains cooler, even under direct sunlight during hot summer days, enhancing

comfort for bare feet and paws.
Some composite decking absorbs excessive heat, making surfaces uncomfortably hot. CoolDeck Technology mitigates this issue, allowing MoistureShield’s decking to stay significantly cooler and providing a more comfortable outdoor living experience.

Key Benefits of MoistureShield CoolDeck Composite Boards

MoistureShield’s CoolDeck Technology offers several significant benefits for composite decking:

  • Unmatched Comfort: Because it reduces heat absorption, this feature eliminates the discomfort associated with scorching hot decks, making outdoor living spaces more usable and enjoyable during those hot summer days.
  • Long-Lasting Heat Resistance: Unlike traditional wood decking that fades and degrades due to sun exposure, these comfortable deck boards provide superior protection and heat resistance without fading or damage. The decking retains its cool surface and visual appeal for years.
  • Design Flexibility: With superior durability, moisture resistance, and slip resistance, CoolDeck decking can be installed on the ground, in the ground, or even underwater without issues.
  • Solid Core Composite Construction: Engineered to resist moisture, rot, and insect damage, ensuring long-lasting performance and structural integrity.

Overall, MoistureShield’s CoolDeck Technology provides homeowners with a comfortable, low-maintenance, and long-lasting custom decking solution capable of withstanding harsh sun exposure, making it an excellent choice for enhancing outdoor living spaces.
