Affordable & Beautiful MPS
MicroPro® Sienna (MPS) is a pressure treated wood (usually pine or spruce) for decks and other landscaping uses. It provides long-term protection against decay. Perhaps best of all, MPS provides a lower cost alternative to cedar decking while still retaining many of the beautiful attributes of a real wood (e.g. rings, wood grain, knots).
Beautiful colour and feel. MPS comes as a warm, brown colour that will fade (like all other natural products) to a soft tan or beige and transition to grey over time. The length of time will vary according to the exposure to sunlight, the wood species and the application. Like cedar or other wood products, MPS is warm and soft to the feet.
Affordable. MPS is slightly less expensive than red cedar and composites because it is made from pine and other other less costly woods. However, because the wood is treated at the factory it will last as long as cedar on your condo balcony.
Environmentally Friendly. MicroPro was the first, and is the only, wood treatment process to be certified as an Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP), by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), based on Life-Cycle Assessment.
