BuildingGreen Announces 2010 Top-10 Green Products

NyloDeck is made from 100% recycled carpet and a water-blown polyurethane binder.

BuildingGreen, LLC, publisher of the GreenSpec Directory and Environmental Building News (EBN), announced its ninth annual Top-10 Green Building Products during the 2010 Greenbuild conference in Chicago. The list recognizes the most exciting products drawn from recent additions to GreenSpec, coverage in EBN, and BuildingGreen blogs.

NyloDeck, introduced by Nyloboard, LLC, in September 2010, is an American-made composite decking produced from pre-consumer recycled carpet fiber and water-blown, VOC-free, polyurethane binder. In early 2011, the company plans to convert to 100% post-consumer recycled carpet and add an edge-groove option to accommodate the use of hidden fasteners. NyloDeck is impervious to moisture, termites, mold, and mildew. The 5-½"-wide decking is available in two thicknesses: 7/8", which is suitable for spanning 16" on-center joists, and 1-1/8", which can span up to 24" on-center joists. Decking must be spaced to allow for thermal expansion and contraction. For more information, see our GreenSpec listing. We also featured this product in a blog post.
