Dura Tile applications
Dura Tile is a durable, cost-effective solution for residential or commercial projects
Balconies and patio areas
One way to give your balcony or small patio area an affordable makeover is to choose our modular interlocking decking tile known as Dura Tile.
Dura Tile is the perfect choice for balconies with a reduced clearance between the area to be decked and the door threshold as the tiles measure just 23.5mm from the ground, making them ideal for situations where a raised deck is impractical. They are so simple to install, anyone can do it! Simply slot each tile into the next one and place onto almost any flat or hardstanding surface. No additional fixings are needed, and Dura Tile is available with complementary edge or corner trims which simply clip to the sides or corners of the outer row of tiles to provide a smooth, safe, angled transition between the tile and the floor surface.
If low thresholds are not a problem, then you may also wish to consider Dura Deck Type 146 in Teak and Charcoal or Dura Deck Type 150 in Ash or Oak for your balcony or patio area.
Roof gardens, terraces and courtyard gardens
Our hard-wearing composite tiles are a durable and cost-effective choice for areas such as roof gardens, courtyard gardens and terraces. The speed at which Dura Tile can be laid also makes them ideal for quickly rejuvenating outdoor spaces. Both DIYers and experienced contractors can transform these areas by creating stunning tiled decking areas in next to no time.
Thanks to their blend of high density polyethylene based resins and reclaimed hardwood, our composite tiles are UV stable and will therefore not lose their colour even in sun-soaked locations. Whether you are considering decking a domestic or commercial area, you can be sure that you are making an excellent investment in Dura Tiles.
Small decking areas
Our versatile composite tiles are a great investment for small decking areas as they have an expected lifespan in excess of 25 years. You don’t need to worry about extensive preparation of the area to be decked as the tiles can be laid on any existing flat hardstanding area. Dura Tiles interlock quickly and easily without the need for screws, nails or bonds and will never need costly and time consuming painting, staining or oiling. Small decking areas can be simply and affordably enhanced with Dura Tiles.
Decking over existing patio areas
The combination of the beautiful traditional appearance of wood and durability of wood plastic composite makes our tiles the ideal for both new installations or for tiling over an unsightly or unwanted patio area. Their advanced material composition meets the modern standards set by architects, designers and specifiers. All you need is an existing firm, flat, hardstanding surface to install our composite tiles.
Once you’ve chosen your final design and have added your interlocking corner and edge ramps as necessary, you will be ready to enjoy the benefits of composites for your patio, balcony or garden areas. The deck tiles are precision made modules which are securely attached to a plastic grid base using corrosion resistant screws. The base allows water to drain under the decking tiles without restriction and its open structure provides excellent air circulation, preventing mould, mildew and algae from taking hold.
Flooring for sheds, changing rooms or outbuildings
Dura Tile composite decking tiles are also a great option for sheds, changing rooms or outbuildings thanks to their ease of installation. Commercial enterprises including holiday parks, leisure centres and theme parks can also benefit by fitting Dura Tile to premises where safety standards and good drainage are an important factor. With no trip hazards such as nails or screws on the surface, our tiles are a reliable and effective alternative to traditional materials. The strength of our interlocking patio tiles originates from their inbuilt connecting tabs, which enable them to be simply and swiftly linked together to create a ‘floating’ surface.
Reusable floors for exhibition stands or marquees
Our composite deck tiles can be joined together in seconds and make ideal temporary flooring for marquees or exhibition stands. Dura Tiles can be laid in two directions to create a unique pattern and are available in two colours (teak and charcoal) to suit your requirements.
The composite tiles come in a standard size of 305mm long x 305mm wide x 23.5mm thick, and have corresponding corner edge and straight edge ramps. When complete, this creates a beautiful surface which has the natural appearance of wood and the long-lasting properties of a composite.
Our decking tiles are also an environmentally-friendly option. Manufactured using a blend of up to 87% recycled hardwood and plastics, Dura Tile helps to protect the natural world by reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. Our pledge to preserve the environment is also reflected by our position as the first timber composite supplier to become FSC ® 100% certified, giving you excellent peace of mind.
Dura Tile colour options
Dura Tile is available in Teak and Charcoal, to suit a variety of applications. Colour samples are available on request.
Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Dura Tile is relatively colour stable, there will likely be some initial colour lightening as the product weathers, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.
