MacLumber, headquartered in Bamberg SC is a manufacturer and supplier of plastic lumber used for decking and other outdoor areas.

Unlike Trex and TimberTech, MacLumber is not a well-known brand, however they do maintain their synthetic lumber is among the best manufactured.  Their best-known product is called NyloDeck; not made of wood nor PVC, but instead recycled carpet fiber.  Some benefits of this product include: Strong, lightweight, easy-to-use; impervious to mold, mildew and termites; no rot or swelling; UV protected; strength and rigidity enable joist spans up to 24" O.C.; available in lengths up to 24'; and best Expansion and Contraction rating of all composites.

But how does that help someone who wants to install this product outdoors?  We all know carpet can stain no matter what liquid is tossed on it.  Then you have the problem of dealing with a cold or frozen carpet in the winter.

Instead of this and instead of throwing your money away on something that doesn't work, consider this: whether you install synthetic wood, a non slip grit tape or a non slip grit paint, it will all need to be replaced periodically due to excessive wear and tear.

Fortunately, we did our research, busied ourselves away at product development and came up with a product that won't fade, won't need annual replacing, and won't leave a sticky residue if you decide to move it somewhere.  That product is called a non slip tread.  Made of aluminum, they will resist any weather condition, and more importantly, will prevent unnecessary slip and fall injuries.

Did you know falls are the second-leading cause of unintentional death in homes and communities, resulting in more than 25,000 fatalities in 2009 (NSC.org 2009)?
