Why choose composite timber for your garden decking?

Dura Deck wood plastic composite decking boards (WPC) have a beautiful timber appearance, with exceptional durability and a virtually maintenance free finish, meaning you can spend time enjoying your garden deck, instead of maintaining it.

Whilst timber has traditionally been used for garden decking, it has a range of drawbacks. It needs regular maintenance which can be costly and time consuming, becomes slippery when wet and is prone to rotting, fading and staining.

Our composite garden decking is the result of extensive development and provides the best of both worlds; a long-lasting decking material with a beautiful traditional wood appearance but almost no maintenance needed. It has a high resistance to UV light, and therefore resists fading, even during the summer months or in hot climates. Additionally, it won’t splinter, split or rot and is resistant to the impact of moisture, mould, and algae, requiring only an occasional wash and scrub to keep it looking at its best.

Dura Deck composite decking boards are safe and barefoot friendly

Whatever your style, our range of decking colours, and surface finishes are designed for the future, and can help you make the most of your outdoor space. Manufactured from a unique combination of wood and plastic to create a composite timber, our unique formula combines the traditional appearance of timber with the durability of an engineered composite.

All Dura Deck boards are reversible to allow the installer to choose from two attractive finishes and the innovative concealed fixing system used in Dura’s composite garden decking boards means there are no screws or nails showing, making it barefoot friendly and safe for children and pets alike.

Dura Deck is easy to install and is available in a variety of stunning colours with a 10 year warranty and 25 year service life, giving it an extremely cost effective lifecycle.

The eco-friendly choice

Dura Deck composite timber decking is incredibly versatile and can be used in practically every scenario to create the perfect outdoor space.

Made from an innovative blend of up to 87% recycled hardwood and plastics, our composite decking materials help to conserve the earth’s resources, whilst also reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.

And what’s more, Dura Composites was the world’s first timber composite supplier to become FSC™ 100% certified, further cementing our position as a global pioneer in the world of composite timber. Our FSC™ 100% chain of custody certification (C108450) guarantees the use of FSC™ certified forests in Dura Composites’ production chain, and means that any wood content in our products comes from well-managed forests. This means our customers can have confidence that they are helping preserve our natural resources for future generations.

Available in a variety of colours and finishes

Our composite decking boards are available in a variety of colours, as well as finishes, to complement their natural appearance. From slate grey and charcoal to more earthy tones like oak and teak, there is an option to suit every application. Whether for commercial or domestic use, our boards come free from visible fixings, enhancing the appearance even further.

For the perfect eco and wildlife-friendly garden design, we recommend that Dura Deck be installed alongside plenty of complementary low-maintenance hedge varieties and potted plants which will provide a vital haven for birds, bees, butterflies and other important fauna.
