Are you building schools for the future?

Dura Deck at GEMS School in DubaiThe Dura Composites range of timber composite decking and Composite cladding has been designed with safety and longevity in mind which means that it is ideal for inclusion on new or the refurbishment of existing schools.

Whilst they look just like natural wood, Dura Decking and Dura Cladding will not rot, warp or splinter and require only minimal maintenance throughout their 25 year design life expectancy. Furthermore, they are installed using subsurface fixings to ensure barefoot-friendliness and prevent injuries caused by loose screws.

Quick and simple to install, Dura Decking has been successfully installed in nurseries and schools around the UK and globally, creating all-weather playgrounds which come with a warranty of up to 25 years.

Dura Cladding is a newer addition to the Dura Composites range and offers the same benefits over natural wood alternatives. It is lightweight yet durable and experiences minimal fading over its lifetime. It can be installed over any wall to completely transform the outside of a building.

If you have a project which you think could benefit from our Dura Decking or Dura Cladding range, call us on 01255 423601. We’d love to hear from you.
