International Builders' Show 2013

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--()--Universal Consumer Products, a subsidiary of Universal Forest Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: UFPI), will unveil exciting new products in its Deckorators brand, including accent lighting, solar baluster lights, balusters, and exciting new post cap designs, at next week’s International Builders Show in Las Vegas, Nev. Included in the new Deckorators product offering at IBS, Jan. 22-24, 2013, are:

Low-voltage lighting. This new line of low-voltage accent lighting offers all you’ll need to light an outdoor living area with flair.

  • Lighted aluminum balusters (in two styles, and in black and white. Mix and match with non-lit balusters).
  • Glass baluster lighting kits (in black and white) for lighting our Scenic glass balusters.
  • Recessed lighting stair kit (made specifically for stairways, but open to your imagination).
  • Post-cap lights, with either 4x4 aluminum or VersaCap bases, which adapt to almost any size posts.

All fixtures feature energy-efficient LED technology and connect to a standard 12-volt power supply. And they can be installed alone or in combination with others to meet the needs of any project.

Solar baluster lights. Available in copper and black, these mount easily to Classic balusters, adding ambient lighting to new or existing railings.

Balusters. Two new balusters will be introduced: the Estate Baluster in a matte black finish, and 29-inch Frontier Scenic Glass Balusters, offering a new length for use with Deckorator’s CTX railing system.

6”x6” Solar VersaCaps. These post caps come with two brackets nested inside the base, allowing them to fit almost any size post ranging from 5”x5” to 5-1/2”x5-1/2”.

New wood post caps. Deckorators offers more post cap styles than any other brand—and now, we’re offering even more ways to add color, light and flair to wood railings.

  • Leaf and Chevron Filigreed Post Caps feature new, contemporary designs and are available with or without solar lighting.
  • Now our solar post cap comes in Copper and features beveled glass.
  • We’re offering post points in a new size—6”x6”, an economical way to add flair to the top of a post.

See these new Deckorators products and much more at Booth #1431 at the IBS Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 22-24, 2013!
