Dura Deck Eco Range
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. The boards come in two widths, 146mm and 295mm with the narrower boards resembling a more traditional appearance of natural wood planks, and the double width boards used when priority is maximising the speed of installation or span capability.
Our Dura Deck Eco decking boards are available in three colours: Teak, Charcoal and Stone. Colour samples are available on request, or for large orders, bespoke colours can be selected. Additionally, all Dura Deck composite timber boards are reversible, allowing installers to choose from two attractive and durable finishes.
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.
Advantages of the Eco Range
The main feature of this range is its environmentally friendly and sustainable manufacturing. Comparison of the Dura Deck Eco Range to both non-composite and composite competitor products show superior fire class ratings (Class C), minimal UV colour fade (min grey scale C) and water absorption (0.5% or less). The boards additionally have been tested for freeze-thaw effects, anti-slip potential and flexural stiffness, demonstrating the high safety standards of the range.
