What’s The Split Between Wood And Plastic?

While timber forms the majority of the material within our wood plastic decking; recycled plastic and performance enhancing additives make up the rest. These work hand-in-hand to enhance our products, ensuring we offer both authenticity and performance in equal measure.

Flammability Standards

ASTM International, formerly called the American Society for Testing and Materials, describes a process for testing and evaluating the performance of building materials during ignition, combustion and burning phases of fire. The ASTM standards are used as a basis for building codes, insurance requirements and fire regulations. ASTM E84 - 11a is referred to when testing the response of materials or products to heat or flame under controlled conditions, but the standard doesn't include all the factors that a real fire would contain.

Cost-Effective

WPC composite decking might be more costly in the beginning but this product continues to look great year after year and has virtually no cost of upkeep. As already stated, composite decking requires less maintenance than traditional wood decking.

This means you can spend far less time maintaining your space and reaching into your pockets and it gives you far more time to spend money on other things. WPC decking will last longer than its timber alternatives and therefore incur fewer overall costs for replacements and overhauls.
