Are you building schools for the future?

By Stuart Burns February 4, 2016

article #1Pupils across the country are being given a fresh start for 2016 as they return to state-of-the-art new school buildings funded through the government’s flagship rebuilding programme.

The 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 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, improve its thermal qualities and reduce maintenance.

These composite building products can further improve safety and reduce costs when used within the Government’s already successful Priority School Building Programme.
