The combination of the beautiful traditional appearance of wood and durability of composite timber makes Dura Deck Tile Resist ideal for both new installations or for tiling over unsightly or unwanted outdoor areas. The advanced material composition meets modern standards set by architects, designers and specifiers. All you need is an existing firm, flat, hardstanding surface to install our composite timber tiles.
Dura Deck Tile Resist is produced via a co-extrusion process where a 360° outer armour is used to protect the core of the tile boards from the elements.
The interlocking base means the tiles are easy to lay and large areas can be installed quickly as no bearers or fixings are required. Corner and Edge Ramps interlock with the tile to create an outer row providing a smooth, safe, angled transition between the tile and hard surface.

Dura Deck Tiles are the perfect DIY product and provide an instant transformation without the need for bearers or other costly substructures. They can be installed on virtually any hardstanding or flat area where the ground is level. Dura Deck Tile Resist has a unique patent-pending base design which mitigates the risk of damage or piercing to underlying membranes.
Work out how many tiles you’ll need
To work out how many deck tiles and or ramps you’ll need for your project, first calculate the square meterage (m²) (or square footage) of the area (length multiplied by width) and divide by the tile coverage. Refer to the base of this box for more details. A good rule of thumb is to order 10% more tiles than your measurements say you need, to allow for any wastage.
Dura Deck Tiles won’t interlock when laid on uneven surfaces, so you must be sure to fix any issues before starting. If you’re installing on top of concrete, sweep the area clean first. If there are small cracks of less than 10mm, tiles can bel laid straight on top as long as the sides of the crack are even. If they’re uneven, you’ll need to repair them first with some patching filler or compound.
Laying your Dura Deck Tiles
To lay the first Dura Deck Tile, start from a corner and work outward. The tile bases click together easily without the need for undue pressure. Keep connecting the tiles together until you have covered the entire area, and the surface is flush and level.
If you need to, you can use a jigsaw or mitre saw to cut the last few tiles to your required dimensions and guarantee a perfect fit.
Cut the Dura Deck Tiles
You can also use a jigsaw to cut the deck tiles to fit around an obstruction.
Mark out the area to size on a piece of cardboard to use as a template, and make sure to avoid any screws on your cut line from the base of the tile.
Cut your Dura Deck Tile according to your template, and use sandpaper to smooth the rough edges. You can now lay the tile as you would normally.
Add Outside Ramps (Optional)
Once you’ve finished installing your tiles, you can finish the outer edge where your interlocking tabs will be visible. You can use pebbles or gravel to create a transition area between the deck and the house or lawn, or for a more professional finish you can opt for Dura<sup>®</sup> Deck Tile Corner and/or Edge Ramps to finish the area.
Simply start with the Corner Ramps, lifting the adjacent Dura<sup>®</sup> Deck Tile up, and push the tile back down into the Corner Ramp to lock into place.
Complete this finish with the Edge Ramps by filling in the space between each Corner Ramp by lifting the adjacent Dura Tile upward and pushing this tile back down into the interlocking tabs of the Edge Ramp.
Brush down the area to remove any debris. With Dura Deck Tiles, there’s no need to wait before adding your furniture, plants or accessories onto your deck – so you can enjoy your new space as soon as you’ve finished the installation!
The Dura Deck Tile Resist has undergone wind uplift testing to establish their suitability in high rise building environments, where strong negative air pressures are often prevalent.
To instill confidence in our customers, through testing, we have established that a sample of 12 interconnected tiles do not lift off the ground to any significant distance. Individual tiles under the same wind loading conditions showed no movement.
To validate the suitability of Dura Deck Tile Resist for architectural applications, Dura Composites executed live testing using pre-determined pressure variations to mimic high rise balcony conditions.
Based on the results gained, we are confident Dura Deck Tile Resist can be successfully specified for high rise projects.
