Trex® Seal™ Earns Top Honors From Two Industry Award Programs

General News
Trex Company Logo - Composite Decking Manufacturer

Recognizing and reinforcing its innovation and superiority over traditional ledger flashing, Trex® Seal™ Ledger Tape has been honored with two high-profile industry awards. The 11”-wide aluminum-lined butyl-based tape from the makers of Trex® RainEscape® and Trex® Protect recently earned a Golden Hammer Award and a PRODUCTS MVP Award for its ingenuity and outstanding performance.

“Awards like these are especially rewarding because they recognize products that bring new levels of excellence to the building industry,” said Dave Kile, founder and owner of Trex RainEscape. “Earning two prestigious awards in just the first year on shelf is a testament to the design and performance benefits of Trex Seal and the need that this product addresses.”

In many deck installations, there is a small gap left between the house and the deck that allows water to seep down and onto the ledger board, where it can collect and penetrate the wood, eventually leading to decay. Protecting the ledger board with proper flashing is critical for ensuring the structural integrity and longevity of a deck. Designed specifically for deck applications, both in its function and size, Trex Seal takes ledger flashing to a whole new level by combining the best performance features of metal and tape flashing in one easy-to-use product. A convenient 5.5” double-release liner allows installers to bend and set it in place without it flexing back like other flashing tapes, making it easy to apply. Further, it is wide enough to provide complete coverage of the ledger and forms a tight seal on boards and around hardware to create a comprehensive waterproof barrier.

HBS Dealer Golden Hammer Award

Trex Seal was lauded by the editorial staff at Hardware + Building Supply Dealer magazine as a winner of the publication’s iconic Golden Hammer Award. This long-standing industry program recognizes products that exemplify the gold standard in home improvement based on innovation, shelf appeal and overall value. Trex Seal was chosen from hundreds of nominations as a 2022 “Golden” honoree for its specially engineered and easy-to-apply design.
