What is it made of?
ECO-DECKING is made of a proven composition of 50% recycled wood fibers and 50% UV resistant recycled polyethylene plastic. The recycled plastic component is what makes it so durable, virtually colour-fast, etc. It’s your best environmentally friendly choice. It does not contribute to illegal logging or deforestation. There’s no need for toxic stains or oils as with traditional decking. Because ECO-DECKING comes in perfect 4.8 metre lengths there is very little wastage compared to using traditional timber boards.
Inspired by nature, we have developed MIXDURE, our colour-mix technology to create a natural appearance. Additionally ECO-DECKING is not fixed using traditional methods. A smart range of concealed QWICKCLIP's fasten the boards to joists using up to 75% less fasteners. No nails, pre-drilling, punching required.
Please note: Not all composite decking boards are the same quality, ECO-DECKING is made of the highest grade recycled materials available.
Is it suitable for over waterproof membrane decks?
Yes it is OUTDURE has QWICKBUILD and QWICKGRATE to provide a solid structure to fasten boards to, whilst retaining access to drains and ventilation. It is one of the few systems that comply with local government regulations.
What happens to it over time?
ECO-DECKING is incredibly colour fast compared to most other composites and traditional decking. No painting, staining or oiling is required to retain its colour or to keep structural integrity. Expect an initial weathering period in the first 3-6 months, then gradual weathering in future years. Your deck can be revitalized periodically using OUTDURE care kit.
How does it compare in price to timber and other composites?
ECO-DECKING is very cost-effective compared to traditional hardwood deck once installed and more cost effective than most quality composites. MIXDURE offers a natural looking deck solution so you don’t have to settle for an artificial looking deck.
