Dura Composites Celebrates Responsible Forestry on #FSC® Friday with Competition to win over £400 of FSC® Certified Garden Decking Products


30th September 2016 – Dura Composites is supporting The Forest Stewardship Council® #FSCFriday initiative this Friday September 30th to help raise awareness of the importance of responsible forestry by offering a fantastic competition prize for one of our lucky Twitter followers.

The Forest Stewardship Council® is an international, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC® system identifies timber and forest products that have come from forests that are well-managed, so consumers can be confident that their purchase supports good forest practices.

More than 30,000 FSC certificates are held by companies trading FSC certified products around the world, and Dura Composites is proud to be amongst them. In fact we were the world’s first composite timber supplier to achieve Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) Chain of Custody certification (C108450) in 2011, as part of our commitment to lead the industry in sustainable practice.

We’re offering one lucky winner the chance to win 9m2 of our FSC Certified interlocking composite timber decking tiles, known as Dura Tiles which can be used to make a stunning 3m by 3m deck area.

Offering a beautiful, low-maintenance decking option, Dura Tiles are ideal for small DIY garden decking projects or for difficult to reach roof terraces and balconies. The tiles are available on both Teak and Charcoal colours and have the beautiful natural appearance of wood, but with the added benefit of a long lifespan thanks to their advanced composite structure. They are suitable for any existing firm, flat, hardstanding surface, so you don’t need to worry about extensive preparation of the area – Dura Tiles can be laid quickly and easily in minutes.
