Deckorators Vault, Frontier Decking Warrantied for Water and Ground Contact
The warranty for Deckorators brand Vault and Frontier decking has been expanded to include water and ground contact, making Deckorators one of the only brands in the industry to stand behind installations in, or in contact with, water or ground. The Vault and Frontier decking are now backed by a 25-year structural, 25-year stain-and-fade and 25-year removal-and-replacement limited warranty that states the boards “may be installed in contact with the ground or submersion in water.” Coverage applies to both fresh and saltwater contact.
The enhanced warranty gives contractors and DIY’ers the peace of mind to use the decking on a wide variety of projects, such as docks, ground-level decks, around pools and hot tubs, and more. Made with polypropylene and mineral filler in the exclusive Eovations process, Vault and Frontier decking absorb virtually no moisture because they contain no organic material. At the same time, each board is 35 percent lighter than most wood-plastic composite decking and similar in weight to PVC for easier handling on the job site—however, it’s twice as strong as PVC decking in terms of stiffness-to-weight ratio for superior durability.

Atlas Storm Shelters
Atlas Survival Shelters’ new NADO series of small nuclear fallout shelters can be retrofitted into existing homes. The new collection includes three shelter types that start from $9999 and even include a NBC air-filtration system to protect inhabitants from nuclear, biological and chemical gases. The units are designed for new home construction but can be disassembled to insert into a garage with some excavation of the garage floor. “Bombnado” is designed for a secret hatch in the floor of a new home’s closet, available in five sizes (1- to 6-man models), all less than $20,000 including freight and installation. “FallNado” is a handicap accessible walk-in shelter at ground level, framed within the walls or simply bolted to the garage floor for retrofits (14 sizes available). “Garnado” is the most popular of the three models because of its adaptability, making it easier to install under a driveway with the hatch hidden inside a garage door, so you may come and go as you want without anyone seeing you enter it. The Garnado also installs easily in the backyard with usually just one day’s worth of digging. Learn more at IWANTTHATSHELTER.com or call 1-855-BUNKER.
