Outwater has chosen to highlight its most popular products from the 2014 International Builder's and Kitchen & Bath Shows.
1) Resin Artisan Collection of Architectural Decorative Elements
Comprising hybrid technology in its manufacture, which employs the first of its kind combination of hardwood maple and resin, Outwater's newly introduced Resin Artisan Collection of Architectural Decorative Elements has substantial benefits over wood decorative ornamentation in that it is free of typical characteristic adversities often encountered when working with wood, such as having to contend with knots, warping, cupping and staining inconsistencies, not to mention that it is comparatively lower in cost than its wood counterpart.
Not only does Outwater's Resin Artisan Collection handle and tool exactly like wood, its resin component, which is inherently non porous, evenly absorbs stain, resulting in a beautiful, uniform finish and color.
Outwater's Resin Artisan Collection comprises an assortment of over 1,300 architectural decorative elements to suit a varied range of residential and commercial applications.
2) Faux Wood Beams
Cast in polyurethane from the molds of genuine reclaimed wooden barn beams with exacting realism, Outwater's Faux Wood Beams are visually and texturally indistinguishable from the originals after which they have been patterned.
Offered in four distinctive collections in fifteen different styles for just a mere fraction of the cost of real wood beams, Outwater's Faux Wood Beams are not only suited for transforming ordinary houses into extraordinary old world style homes, they are lightweight, sturdy and easy to install on ceilings, walls or almost any interior or exterior surface.
Furthermore, unlike their wood counterparts, which are subject to rot and insect infestation, not to mention, also extremely heavy and cumbersome, Outwater's hollowed Faux Wood Beams will not split, crack or splinter, further noting that because they are also dimensionally stable and impervious to moisture, they can be utilized with little if any necessary follow up maintenance in extremely adverse environments that would not have been otherwise possible with conventional wood beams.
However, Outwater's Faux Wood Beams can be tooled and refinished as desired, and will still retain their original grain and texture using traditional techniques and tools.
To heighten the overall authenticity of an installation, Outwater offers corresponding Faux Wood Panels, corbels, beam strapping, polyurethane u-brackets and touch up stain.
3) Cable-Rail Railing System
Now available in three cable diameters with corresponding manufactured posts, Outwater's Cable-Rail Railing System is an affordable and easy to install prefabricated cable assembly system that can be used to replace ordinary, outdated, view impeding metal and wood railing pickets.
Suitable for use indoors or out in residential or commercial applications, Outwater's Cable-Rail now includes your choice of 1/8-in., 3/16-in. or ¼-in. diameter, high strength, weather impervious type 316 stainless steel cable, which when used in conjunction with the supplied patented supplemental automatic locking quick connect fittings and corresponding hardware, can be easily threaded and properly tensioned through the holes of the system's new, attractive and reasonably priced manufactured posts without the need for welding. Additionally, the stainless steel cable can also be utilized with new or existing wood, aluminum or steel railing frames if desired.
Whether one were to use the system's manufactured posts or new or existing wood, aluminum or steel railing frames, the end result is a virtually invisible, perceptibly open railing system that is not only extremely durable and attractive, but one that allows for beautiful, unimpaired views.
Outwater's Cable-Rail is sold in standard lengths from 5-ft. to 80-ft. in increments of 5-ft., and can be trimmed to a finished dimension in the field, making it an ideal choice for fences, trellises, handrails and balustrading as well as a wide range of other architectural applications.
