About UsOur history
Architrex (formerly HandyDeck) was one of the first companies to introduce the concept of interlocking deck tiles into the USA market. Starting in 2001 with just Ipe wood tiles, we soon expanded to offer the widest range of interlocking deck tiles available in North America including slate, granite, sandstone, ceramic, pebble stone and composite wood deck tiles.
Whilst we still supply interlocking Ipe wood deck tiles for homeowners and light duty commercial applications, in recent years we have concentrated more on the commercial market. In 2013 we were one of the first companies to import structural porcelain pavers from Europe used primarily for the construction of elevated decking on rooftops and other exterior applications. We currently import porcelain pavers from over six different manufacturers and stock over 30 colors in our warehouse in Jessup MD.
To complement the porcelain pavers, we also supply the Eterno range of adjustable height pedestals which feature a self-leveling head, inbuilt spacer tabs, a soft rubber head and a special height adjustment tool which allows for micro height adjustment even after installation.
In 2014 we further expanded our range of elevated paver products with the importation of structural Ipe wood tiles from Bolivia including tiles with wood sourced from FSC certified forests.
Our deck and paving products are used in a broad range of outdoor applications, both commercial and residential. We supply and service a nationwide customer base including retailers, contractors, builders, architects, designers and wholesalers.
