The installation included outdoor cladding on the building façade around the entertainment area, as well as patio decking, and seating around a fire pit which was the focus of the recreation zone on the property. The client’s busy lifestyle and requirements for low maintenance were foremost among considerations, as was longevity and hassle-free performance.
While installed by different contractors on the same site, the separate phases of the installation project took place in less than two weeks and led to matching appearances providing a high degree of continuity in the outdoor living space.
An additional motivation for choosing an Eva-Last product was the environmental credentials of the company’s sourcing and manufacturing: Apex is produced from easily replenished bamboo strands and recycled plastics – as many as 2,500 recycled bottles are used for every 10 m2 (107.6 ft²) of Apex boards produced.
KEY INFLUENCER QUOTE
“What was especially significant was to have the patented qualities of Apex validated by its selection for both decking and cladding in applications which will place high performance demands on the installed materials. While the product’s performance in a range of weather and usage conditions makes it the first choice from a technical point of view, the client – who was reluctant to consider composite materials at first – was ultimately surprised by the material’s realistic timber finish, and settled any possible questions about installing Apex.” – Arnoldt Visser, Eva-Last
