Geolam® Siding System
* Geolam® provided composite wood products are a long-term alternative when it comes to
wooden exterior construction
* Monarch supplies the ventilated and non-ventilated Hat Channels used to install Geolam® siding
* Although Geolam® planks look and feel like real wood, they are inherently much more resistant
than tropical wood.
* Geolam® is helping to conserve the world's rainforests and the environment in general since
its manufacture does not involve cutting down tress, and treating and maintaining it causes
no secondary pollution.
