The term Composite is an umbrella term to describe materials that have been put together to make another substance that is superior than the original form in some way, for example making it stronger, easier to handle or more fire resistant.
Composite Timber has been used in decking for a number of years now, and is typically made from a mixture of recycled hardwood waste and recycled plastic. Pressure and heat are applied to the mix of two materials, which then bonds them into a board that's more durable than wood alone and doesn't require annual painting, re-staining or treating.
Dura Composites' Managing Director, Stuart Burns, explains the importance of selecting the right composite decking.
"Not all composites are created equal. As you can imagine, the quality of the resulting composite decking boards relies on the quality of the materials that went into making them, as well as on the manufacturing process and colour mix used. Products at the cheaper end of the spectrum are prone to scratching and fading and may not have been subjected to the rigorous testing methods that Dura Composites employs, and that customers in 2019 have come to expect.
"I would also advise consumers to choose a recognised brand that offers a genuine warranty and detailed installation guidance. A person you can actually talk to on the phone if you need technical support helps too!"
Both Dura Deck Eco and Dura Deck Resist ranges have a unique vortex void to optimise their strength over their warranty period in all conditions and for all applications. Additionally, all Dura Deck composite timber boards are reversible to allow the installer to choose from two attractive finishes.
Dura Composites have also introduced a new product selector to help customers choose the most suitable product range and size for their requirements. Technical specifications and installation tips are available on the site.
The new Dura Deck Eco and Dura Deck Resist ranges are now available through International Timber, as well as selected Jewson stores.
