alfer aluminium launches the new verando terrace system

Munich – It looks and feels like wood, it doesn´t swell, rot or form splinters, it is weatherproof, slip-safety and barefoot friendly: verando combines the benefits of weatherproof decking with a captivating wood look. The verando decking boards made of Resysta, the unique material made of 60% rice husks, convince with their elegant wood finish design and sustainability. Since May 2018 the innovative eco-friendly alfer terrace system has been distributed throughout Europe and offers a long-lasting alternative to tropical wood or WPC.

As protected as rice and determined to last

The terrace decking boards are extruded with avant-garde precision systems and receive their special wood look and texture in highly automated grinding systems. Resysta is mainly made of rice husks, which are produced during rice harvest and are not suitable for food consumption. For that reason Resysta compound is more durable than tropical wood and WPC, easy to clean and weatherproof, it is resistant to fungus and insects, slip-safety and UV-resistant.

One profile for decking and joist

verando convinces professionals and DIY amateurs thanks to the new alfer patented fixing bracket and easy installation system. The whole system is based on only one profile type to build the joist and for decking. The profiles are mounted with the patented fixing brackets made of adhesive tensile strength stainless spring steel, to offer the profiles enough space for their natural thermal expansion in all directions. The alfer clipmaster set ensures an invisible screw connection and minimum joint width of 1,2mm, 2,0mm & 4,0mm. The alfer aluminium profiles allow a neat demarcation and elegant finish of the terrace.

Versatile in shape and colour

Whether regular-parallel, diagonal, diamond.decking, or angle-cut herringbone: verando grants you the possibility to install all kind of decking patterns possible with parquet. The large selection of verando glazes range from anthracite to warm shades of brown such as walnut or siam. Due to its good properties and robustness, verando is suitable for private use as well as in high demand public areas.
