Dura Deck nursery donation – new video

June 15th, 2012 | Articles, Dura Deck Composite Decking, Installation Guides, News, Press Releases | 0 Comments

Regular readers of this blog will remember a previous entry a few weeks ago telling you how we’d installed a donation of our Dura Deck product at a local nursery.

The donation has been much appreciated by all at St Clare’s Day Nursery in our home town of Clacton.

You can find out more about why we embarked on this project, and hear about the difference it’s made to staff and pupils alike, by watching the short video below.

Dura Deck donation installed at nursery

May 30th, 2012 | Articles, Composite Wood, Installation Guides, News, Press Releases | 0 Comments

Last month we told you about our plans to transform the yard area at a local nursery with a donation of our low-maintenance, hard-wearing, composite decking product Dura Deck.

The great news is that this fantastic alternative to traditional wooden decking is now installed at St Clare’s Day Nursery in Clacton and everyone there seems to love it.

Today I had the pleasure of attending its official opening and hearing first-hand from staff and parents about the difference our donation will make.

Before Dura Deck was installed the yard area was often too muddy to use. They’d wanted to improve it for a while but didn’t have the funds – that’s where we came in.

Now the kids have got a great-looking, anti-slip surface to play and learn on all year round and it feels good to have been able to help a such a good cause right here on our doorstep.

I’ll be posting more pictures of the installation process and my day at St Clare’s soon.

Dura Deck can be used to create boardwalks, terraces, balconies, pontoons and patios. It is 87% recycled and is manufactured using reclaimed hardwood timbers and recycled polyethylene.

It can be cut and worked in the same way as natural timber and offers barefoot-friendly, easy to install below-surface fixings.

Best of all it doesn’t require staining or painting, needs only basic cleaning and doesn’t suffer from warping, rotting or long-term colour fade.

Dura Composites is also the first Wood Plastic Composite supplier to secure FSC ® 100% chain of custody certification (C108450), guaranteeing the use of FSC-certified forests in our production chain.

Customers can now choose from FSC or non-FSC items from the Dura Cladding and Dura Deck ranges. Click here to watch a short video on how to install Dura Deck.

Commercial Director role for Tom Bowman

April 20th, 2012 | Dura Deck Composite Decking, Installation Guides, News | 0 Comments

We’re great believers in rewarding talent here at Dura Composites. Staying at the forefront of our industry means investing in the right people and that’s why we’re delighted that Tom Bowman has accepted an offer to become a shareholder in the company after seven years dedicated service.

Stepping up to the role of Commercial Director from Sales Director, Tom will now lead the Sales and Purchasing and Logistics teams.

The promotion recognises the vital part Tom has played in quadrupling the business over the last four years and is deserved reward for all his hard work.

It also means he will now get to focus his sales efforts on new business and team coaching, while taking the opportunity to provide more operational input into production.

Tom’s promotion is a big deal for what up to now has always been a family-run business, but I have no doubt it is the right move for Dura Composites and will pay dividends as we move forward into the future.

Joining the company in 2005 as a salesman, Tom’s rapid progress through the ranks shows exactly what can be achieved by those with determination and a clear focus – talking of which, keep an eye out for his starring role in our latest Dura Composites installation video, due to be published on this blog over the next few weeks.

Tom will be taking you through how to install Dura Deck to transform a tired-looking patio into an appealing leisure deck for the whole family. Until then, have a look at our most recent videos here
