Royal® Building Products Continues to Innovate with New Trim Product, Conceal™ Column Wraps, at International Builders Show

WOODBRIDGE, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Royal® Building Products, a Westlake company, continues its commitment to quality and innovation in the exterior building products category with the introduction of its Conceal™ Column Wraps at the 2018 International Builders’ Show. Celect® Cellular Composite Siding by Royal®, the premier siding and trim solution, as well as Zuri™ Premium Decking, will be on display.

Royal will also unveil the 2018 Exterior Color Palette of the Year as well as the introduction of the Cedar Renditions™ by Royal® Design Series, an aluminum profile that offers a modern, streamlined presence for residential and light commercial applications.


Royal introduces Conceal Column Wraps as part of its Conceal Trim System. These 100% cellular PVC column wraps feature a unique “clam shell” design with three pre-assembled sides that surround the existing post for a seamless appearance. The fourth side is applied to enclose the entire column.

Backed by a Limited 25-year warranty, Royal’s Conceal Column Wraps are available in four widths to fit around 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 structural posts, and two standard lengths – 8’6” and 10’. The capitals and bases are also pre-assembled and come in three distinctive design series: Traditional, Craftsman and Builder. To ensure the columns are protected during the installation process, they are wrapped in a protective film that can later be removed.

Additional new Royal trim and mouldings’ products include:

  • Nickle Gap Shiplap offers interior old world charm with the technology of cellular PVC to reduce moisture concerns. Its shadow lines provide a nailing flange to create a finished look without showcasing exposed fasteners.
  • The Conceal Stone Water Table is 100% cellular PVC and is a decorative solution when transitioning from stone to siding. The slope provides the projection required to shed water away from the stone.

Celect® Cellular Composite Siding replicates the beauty and aesthetics of wood while remaining low maintenance and durable on the home for a lifetime. All of Celect’s profiles – 4" and 7” Clapboard, 8" Board & Batten and 7” Shake – are available in 15 fade-resistant colors and feature Royal’s patented interlocking seam design, which enhances the curb appeal of any home. For the professional, the product is lightweight and easy to install without the need for special tools.

Zuri Premium Decking combines the natural beauty of exotic hardwood with the unsurpassed durability and exceptionally low maintenance requirements of PVC to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor living environment for the home.

Zuri is also available in grooved boards to offer a truly hidden fastener application with pre-threaded screws for fast installation. Available in two options for a finished look with tighter seams between the boards, Zuri Grooved Boards are offered with a 3/32” spacing or a 3/16” gap. Zuri trimboards are also available grooved.

All of the Zuri products, including Zuri Grooved Boards, are available in Chestnut, Walnut, Pecan, Brazilia and Weathered Gray, and carry fade-resistant protection.
