Cutting Edge

Innovative products outfit any rooftop deck in comfort and style

ARTFULLY ENGINEERED
With its stain- and fade-resistant properties, TimberTech AZEK capped polymer decking is well-suited to rooftop use. While closely resembling wood, it’s an entirely synthetic product made of plastic with a durable polymer coating. Pictured here, the Vintage Collection in a Mahogany finish. azek.com

ON FIRE
Halo Elevated fire pits from Solus Décor feature a bed of firestones cradled in a sculptural, polished-concrete slab, on a box base that raises it to convenient coffee-table height. Available in 10 colors, three fuel types and 36- and 48-inch sizes. solusdecor.com

SOUND OFF
Intelligent Audio Products’ PlanterSpeakers bring surround sound outdoors via stylish pots with concealed speaker components and removable trays. Pictured here, the customizable, slatted-teak Piermont, which includes a drainage tube and a smart pot for plants. intelligentaudioproducts.com

NO OUTLET
No need to wire the rooftop with Les Jardins Solar Lighting’s line of Claude Robin-designed outdoor lanterns. A solar panel integrated into the top of each LED light captures and converts the sun’s energy into electricity, storing it in two lithium batteries that deliver power as needed. lesjardins.solar

ECO-FRIENDLY
Green roofs bring sustainability to the rooftop. Above, a DC project by EcoSpaces is planted with sedum and succulents. Under the surface, fabric filters out dirt while recycled plastic material manages drainage. “In addition to aesthetic benefits, a green roof prolongs roof life and provides insulation,” says company CEO Chase Coard. “It also fosters a habitat for wildlife.” ecospacesdc.com
