Hundreds of architects, designers and other industry professionals will get an up-close look at Fiberon’s new high-performance composite cladding at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2022, June 22-25 in Chicago.
Fiberon Wildwood PE composite cladding brings performance and beauty to forward-thinking architectural designs, while utilizing materials that support important sustainability initiatives. Available in a variety of nature-inspired colors that feature realistic wood embossing patterns, Wildwood gives architects endless opportunities to explore their creativity. AIA attendees can experience the product for themselves at booth #1418.
“This is an exciting time of year for the architectural community. In the heart of one of the most design-forward, sustainable cities in the U.S., the AIA conference transforms Chicago’s McCormick Place into a product playground and showcase for leading edge design,” said Mark Ayers, senior vice president of marketing and product development for Fiberon. “Our Wildwood product is an ideal solution for bringing bold ideas to life and we’re looking forward to showing the industry why.”
Wildwood features two globally inspired collections – Eden and Sahara – both of which feature on-trend color palettes. The Eden Collection is inspired by lush, tropical forests and features an array of exotic hues including Mora, Wenge, Meranti, Koa and Tupelo. The Sahara Collection draws inspiration from arid, sandy landscapes and includes rich desert tones like Mulga, Sumac and Palo. Wildwood composite cladding features an open joint profile and is available in a variety of board lengths and widths for added design flexibility.
Wildwood is made from 94 percent mixed recycled wood fiber and plastic content, which would otherwise likely be destined for landfills and incinerators. This commitment to sustainability earned Wildwood recognition as one of Green Builder magazine’s Top 50 Sustainable Products of the Year. It is perfect for architects who want a long-lasting, maintenance-free, more sustainable alternative to traditional wood cladding, offering a solution for projects that require the beauty of wood with long-term warranted performance.
Wildwood cladding has several performance characteristics that make it an ideal solution for rainscreen applications. Its durable composite core ensures exceptional resistance to rotting, cracking, insects and decay. Additionally, the material never needs sanding, staining or painting, making it perfect for difficult-to-reach applications. Unlike wood and stone, Fiberon Wildwood cladding deflects the water it encounters. Furthermore, it resists fading due to sun exposure and is not affected by freeze-thaw cycles.
