Special Tableaux® Faux Wrought Iron Materials
Tableaux® decorative iron designs are also available in additional application specific treated materials.
TableauxEX for Exterior use when high humidity and rainy outdoor conditions demand a water, rot and termite resistant material. Ideal for outside application such as windows inserts, decorative iron brackets, decorative iron accents, patio lattices, etc.
TableauxFR, a Fire Retardant material with no added formaldehyde meets Class 1 (A) standards in commercial applications. Used decorative ironwork applications in hotels, hospitals, cruiseships, etc.
TableauxIG, a feather light closed cell polyurethane material engineered and tested to be used as Insulated Glass inserts without fogging. Ideal for retrofiting existing doors so to allow the exclusive look of a wrought iron door at a fraction of the cost of "real" wrought iron doors.

Hardly a day passes without a newspaper article exposing dangerously toxic imports from building drywall to children’s toys. Because Tableaux®’s substrate supports up to 6 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits, there is no concern about outgassing toxicity. The recycled materials in Tableaux® faux wrought iron substrate come from Northern California and Oregon forests after milling processes in those states. In other words, Tableaux® faux wrought iron substrate is American made using the highest standards of green conservation and processing throughout manufacturing.
