Dekorra Insulated Pouch

Dekorra Insulated Pouch

Although we all know the saying that nothing in life is guaranteed… One thing we can guarantee is that the weather is slowly, yet surely, turning colder.  And, with cold weather comes freezing temperatures and potentially frozen pipes. The Dekorra Insulated Pouch can protect your above ground plumbing from serious damage caused by freezing.

If you have exposed irrigation, well and plumbing fixtures, you run the risk of having freeze damage. This year, get ahead of the game.  Avoid messy clean up or expensive replacement by protecting your exposed plumbing now.

The Dekorra Insulated Pouch has an R-13 insulation value, pre-drilled grommets for secure installation and is made from a 5 year UV durable material. See the size and color varieties of Dekorra pouches available for you to protect your exterior pipes and pumps.

Enjoy the Night with Azek Deck Lighting


Azek Post Cap Light

Decks aren’t just for daytime anymore. With Azek deck lighting you can easily imagine yourself, feet up, watching the moon rise and the stars come out.  The only thing that may be stopping you are the questions that arise and details needed during any light installation. Easily find the answers you need at Azek lighting to make your nighttime deck dreams a reality.

Our customers commonly ask  how many lights can be installed with one Azek light transformer?  The 100 watt Azek transformer can handle up to 90 watts, to prevent overloading. Because Azek deck lighting utilizes LED bulbs, a single 100W transformer is sufficient for most lighting projects. The azek-light-fixture-watt-chartfixture wattage chart, provided by Azek, makes it a breeze to calculate how many lights per transformer you can install.  For example: when installing the Azek Post Cap Light, with a wattage of 4W, you can install up to 22 lights per transformer.  That question and many others will be answered with Azek’s straightforward and well designed installation guide. Azek Installation Guide

Offered in a variety of lighting designs and options, you are sure to create the ambiance you are looking for.  Azek lighting comes in 5 styles: Post Cap, Lighted Island Cap, Accent, Under Rail, Stair Riser and In-Deck, to suit any placement.
