Ultra Deck Eco

Eco-Friendly & Economical

Ultra 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, Stone and Charcoal 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. Its 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 over-expansion.

Due to the excellent below surface fixing systems, no screws or nails need to be used through the decking surface. The result is a decking without screw or nail heads working loose on the walking surface. Therefore dangers of injury when walking barefoot are eliminated.

Ultra Deck Eco 146 is reversible and features attractive grooves on one side and a new woodgrain embossing on the reverse.

Ultra 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 600mm for both marine 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.

Why Dura Composites?

Dura Composites is a global supplier of fibreglass marina decking and composite timber pontoon decking as a replacement for traditional, older pontoon decking or deck materials such as wood and steel grating.

Composite Marine Decking is ideal for many leisure developments as well as for refurbishment or upgrade projects across the marine industry.

Ultra Deck Eco Colours

Our Ultra Deck Eco decking boards are available in six 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 Ultra 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.

6 Reasons To Choose Ultra Deck Eco


1. High Strength

Ultra Deck Eco has been designed to withstand high loads.
In a first for decking products, the product exceeds 1.4kN at just 0.5% deflection as per BS 6399-1:1996. Due to its strength, the same span is recommended regardless of leisure or commercial use.


2. Low Water Absorption

Developed to achieve low water absorption of less than 0.5%, Ultra Deck Eco will perform despite rainy weather throughout its 10-year warranty period.


3. Colour Retention

Latest technology deployed to ensure the colour fade over time is very minor, providing a deck that always looks like new.


4. 87% Recycled

Ultra Deck is an innovative blend of up to 87% recycled hardwood.


5. Woodgrain Surface

The surface of Ultra Deck Eco has been specially developed to offer a natural woodgrain look, akin to wooden decking. Latest technology including a deep embossing process means that unlike other brands, the beautiful appearance will last and last, certified through abrasion testing.


6. Fire Rated

Designed and tested to pass BSEN13501 Class Cfl-s1 for ultimate peace of mind.

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.


Step 1: Screw Start / Stop clip into suitable position ready to accept first board.


Step 2: Slide board into position.


Step 3: Position Fixing Clip into rebate at the side of the board and screw tight (6mm or 10mm).


Step 4: Slide next board into position making sure of a tight fit.


Step 4: Half Clips can be used for different to access areas. Double Clips can be used to fix across butt joints.


Step 5: Start / Stop Clip should be used to secure the final board into position.


Step 6: The Centre Clip is important for installs in extreme climates and where shading occurs and expansion gap consistency is aesthetically important.
