Dura decking: Not all composites are the same

Dura composites are an alternative timber material to hardwood and softwood. Crafted from a unique blend of recycled wood and plastics, Dura decking composites offer the look and feel of natural wood with none of the downsides.

There are, however, loads of different types of Dura decking, so we’re going to give you a full rundown of two of the best products available on the market.

Dura Deck Eco

Dura Deck Eco has a unique formula engineered to the highest standard WPC technology – in layman’s terms, this means it has the highest standard for wood plastic composite in the world!

So, if you’re looking for a composite that’s long-lasting and incredibly environmentally friendly, this is the one for you.

Some fantastic additional benefits of this range include:
Superior fire class ratings (Class C)
Minimal UV colour fade (min grey scale C)
Minimal water absorption (0.5% or less)
Freeze-thaw tested
Anti-slip potential and flexural stiffness, demonstrating the high safety standards of the range

Dura Deck Resist 150

Dura Deck Resist is the most premium decking board on the market – perfect if you require a high specification. It features the most beautiful Dura surface ever and is designed to achieve the most natural composite wood look available to buy.

Available in a wide breadth of colours including Mahogany, Pebble Grey, Red Cedar, Weathered Cedar, Larch and IPE, you’re guaranteed to get the best finish possible on your project.

And now for the more technical bit!

Designed with premium performance and looks in mind, the Resist boards are manufactured by advanced co-extrusion technology, with a highly engineered protective 360-degree outer armour.

As a result, Dura Deck Resist is fire resistant to Class B, colour fade resistant, strength load resistant, stain resistant and also highly slip resistant, with superior statistics compared to non-composite and premium composite competitor products.

The Dura Deck Resist range therefore guarantees a stunning yet highly safe alternative to other products in the decking market. To find out more about it or to order a sample, visit our website here!

Important to remember

Because Dura Deck is the best on the market, it will ensure you have minimal upkeep and issues.

Other similar products or cheaper composites bring a lot of unwanted and unwarranted problems, from twisting and warping when the decking hasn’t been weatherproofed enough, to splitting because it’s not strong enough for the level of footfall it’s being subjected to.

By choosing a Dura decking product, you’re giving yourself that peace of mind that you’ve invested in the best product available, allowing it to withstand the tests of time!
