Dura Deck Eco

Eco-Friendly & Economical

Dura Deck Eco has a unique formula engineered to the highest standard WPC technology, reaching the highest standard for wood plastic composite in the world. Our product range of composite decking boards are eco-friendly and economical, suitable for a range of applications. Our Eco range boards come in two widths, 146mm and 295mm.

Dura Deck Eco 146

Dura Deck Eco 146 has been design engineered to reach the highest standard for wood plastic composite decking in the world and is produced to be both ecological and economical.

Available in Teak, Charcoal and Stone, this board looks and feels just like natural wood and features grooves on one side and wood grain on the reverse to suit all tastes. Dura Composites’ unique Composite Timber formula produces a long lasting deck with a 10 year warranty that is 87% recycled and FSC® 100%.

It’s also easy to install and never needs painting. Ever! Importantly, this innovative formula and manufacturing process results in some of the lowest water absorption rates in the industry thus minimising the risk of overexpansion.

The innovative subsurface fixing system means no nails or screws need to go through the deck itself, creating a smart, uniform and barefoot friendly deck.

Dura Deck Eco 146 is reversible and features attractive grooves on one side and a new wood grain embossing on the reverse.

Dura Deck Eco 295

Dura Deck Eco 295 is designed to have the appearance of a narrow deck board but is twice the width to provide extra strength and allow for a wider span up to 550mm for both residential and commercial applications.

It features the same woodgrain surface design as the Eco 146 allowing both models to be used within the same projects for maximum flexibility. The double width board can allow installs to be completed in half the time, saving labour and cost.

Dura Deck Eco Colours

Our Dura Deck Eco decking boards are available in three colours. Colour samples are available on request, or for large orders, bespoke colours can be selected.

Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Dura Deck is relatively colour stable, there will likely be some initial colour lightening as the product weathers, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.

Our manufacturing process results in a high level of colour consistency although some variation in colour may be apparent across boards from different production batches.

Ecological

Not only is Dura Deck Eco manufactured using recycled materials, at the end of its useful life, a proportion of the product can be broken down and used to remanufacture composite timber decking.

Step 1: Secure the first board in position by screwing the start stop clips into place along the bearers. Push the first board into the clips, making sure that the clips hold the deck board securely.

Step 2: Position the standard fixing clip into the side channel of the board and screw down. Make sure they “pinch”. Push the next board into place and repeat. Ensure you check the alignment of the boards each time.

Step 2A (OPTIONAL): If your boards butt join across a bearer, Double Clips can be used for extra support during expansion.

Step 2B (OPTIONAL): If installing adjacent to a wall, Half Clips can be used to for easier fitting.

Step 3: To secure the final board on the deck edge, use 1 start stop clip per bearer or every 400mm on the parallel bearer (as demonstrated).

Step 4: Secure standard clips on both sides and slide second to last board into position (leaving an adequate gap between any abutting board).

Step 5A (Finishing Option): Place end caps to finish your deck.

Step 5B (Finishing Option): If using fascia to finish your deck, elongated holes should be used to allow for expansion and contraction.

Our Essential Guide to Getting the Most From Your Dura Deck

Whether you’re planning a commercial or residential decking project, Dura Composites has a durable, simple to install, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to help maximise the use of outdoor space in all seasons.

Our high-performance composite decks combine fade-resistance with outstanding durability and mean you can spend less time maintaining your deck and more time enjoying it. To ensure you get the best results, we recommend working with a professional contractor with previous decking installation experience.

Please ensure that the guidance provided here and in our supporting Technical Install Manual are strictly adhered to as improper installation (including the use of non-approved trims, fixings and accessories) will invalidate your product warranty.

When planning your Dura Deck, please bear in mind the key considerations below.

1. Safety First

Before installing any decking product, you should review local building codes and regulations, and consult with local building officials to ensure compliance and safety.

Wear protective clothing and safety equipment where necessary such as safety glasses, gloves, dust masks and long sleeves, particularly if cutting in confined spaces.

Refer to the operator’s manuals for safety guides for all power tools used.

2. Storage and Handling

To ensure the best performance of our products, it is vital that proper care and attention is given to storage and handling of materials. Please ensure you adhere to the following guidance:

  • Store the products on a flat and level surface in their original packaging until you are ready to install them.
  • If stored outdoors the pallets must be kept wrapped to prevent exposure to direct sunlight and weathering.
  • Take care to ensure that boards are not stacked adjacent to sources of moisture.
  • Professional fork lifts should always be used while uploading and discharging pallets. Pallet stacking should not exceed 4 pallets maximum.

3. Choose the Right Product for Your Needs

Our narrower boards can look more traditional as they more closely resemble natural wood boards (Eco 146, Resist 150). However, if your priority is to make installation speed as quick as possible, then choose a wider board (Eco 295).

Our boards also offer the option of a wood grain surface finish, or grooved surface design on the reverse, the choice is yours.

Be aware that very large or raised decks may require planning permission.

Raised decks should not be built with the deck level more than 600mm above ground level without specialist advice.

4. Thermal Expansion and Contraction

Extremely warm or cold outdoor temperatures play a significant role in the installation and performance of all decking products.

Following the detailed installation instructions in our supporting Technical Manual will help manage and reduce the effects of thermal expansion and contraction. Please refer to the gap guide in our Technical Manual to ensure your boards have adequate space for expansion and contraction and to preserve the service life of your decking.

Please ensure that you allow Dura Deck to acclimatise to the exterior temperature before cutting and installing.

5. Care and Maintenance

Once you have completed the install of your Dura Decking, we advise that the decking is either washed down thoroughly with a yard broom or pressure washed to ensure that a good clean surface is ready for you to enjoy.

Basic Cleaning
Spray with hose to remove surface debris. Use warm soapy water and a soft bristled brush to clear dirt and/or debris from grooves/contours.

Pressure Washing
Pressure washers up to 1500psi may be used to maintain cleanliness of your Dura Deck. In order to prevent any damage, always keep the pressure washer nozzle at least 15cm (6 inches) from the surface, and avoid concentrated spraying on one area for more for more than 3 seconds.

Dura Composites’ innovative subsurface fixing systems means no nails or screws need to go through the deck itself, creating a smart, uniform and barefoot friendly deck.

Our unrivalled range of fixings cater for a wide range of installations in different environments. Our expert team and downloadable Installation and Technical Manual can provide further guidance on appropriate use of these fixing solutions and screw types.
