Most WPC boards are made from recycled materials, up to 90% of the total composition. These materials are typically reclaimed hardwoods and recycled plastics, reducing the amount of plastic heading for landfill. Some suppliers also have FSC accreditation, which ensures the responsible use of timber in manufacture. It is worth noting that you should avoid decking which uses rice pulp instead of reclaimed hardwood, as this material may not be recycled and it prone to moisture absorption, leading to warping and premature decay.
ECO FRIENDLY & LOW MAINTENANCE & HIGH PERFORMANCE
Approximately 90 percent of the material content of our WPC decking boards is either recycled or reclaimed, no painting, staining or oiling.
Range of profiles for residential or commercial applications. Requires little care compared to the maintenance of timber wood. No more staining or sealants.
UV, Dent and Mold resistant. The abrasion resistance is similar to hard oak. The WPC decking is guaranteed against termites, rot, and splintering.
How to Remove Ice From WPC Decking
If you have a WPC deck and live in an area where snow and ice are frequent occurrences, than you've probably wondered how to best remove snow and ice safely from it's surface without harm to the decking. Although all WPC decking is typically manufactured in a similar way, you should consult your decking's literature for any product specific guidelines before proceeding with cleanup.
Spread a layer of rock salt, calcium chloride or cat litter on the deck after all ice has been removed to prevent further build up. All three options are easily cleaned off with a hose after the cold snap has passed.
Over time, any wood structure, even that made from pressure-treated wood, will start to lose its ability to carry large loads. If your deck is more than five years old, avoid replacing the decking with composite materials. Even if you make the effort to reinforce the deck with new joists to compensate for the added weight of the composite decking, the wood may be too old to handle the extra load.
