Tournesol Siteworks Pedestals and Decking
Boulevard Ash Decking is an ecologically responsible deck board that performs like exotic hardwoods. Sourced from reclaimed wood, then thermally-modified (already in use with our site furnishings and as Structural Wood Tiles), this gorgeous decking material has a 25+ year life span (AWPA UC3B), and a Class A flame spread rating (ASTM E84). It is moisture stabilized; splinter-, warp-, and twist-resistant; and will naturally weather to a beautiful, rich patina.
Tournesol’s Boulevard wood starts with FSC-certified domestic ash. The lumber is treated at high temperatures and with steam in a special kiln located in Northern Minnesota. The natural process changes the make-up of the wood, creating a gorgeous dark-colored lumber with exceptional rot, pest, and decay resistance. All lumber is harvested and processed entirely in the U.S.
Boulevard decking is 50% lighter (good for shipping) and far easier to modify and work with on site than South American hardwoods. All Boulevard wood is 100% free of the arsenic, copper, chrome and other hazardous metals present in pressure-treated wood.
Available in 1×4, 1×6, 5/4×4 and 5/4×6 conventional decking planks, as well as in dimensional lumber sizes. Boulevard Deck Tiles are also available.
