Hollow Decking Or Solid Decking
Hollow Core Composite Decking Or Solid Core Composite Decking
Composite decking can become an investment for home and business owners. Depending on which composite deck board is required will depend on how you are going to use the decking. Our cost effective decking in both hollow and solid boards are available in a variety of colours and finishes with slightly different benefits. Let’s take a look and you can decide whether a hollow or solid deck is right for you and your project.
Designed For Living – Built To Last
Hollow or solid composite decking (WPC) is manufactured by an extrusion process using a combination of recycled plastic, recycled natural wood fibre and a little additives including anti-UV and anti-ageing. These combinations are specially blended together to create an immensely versatile material which combines the traditional appearance of timber with the durability and resilience of composite.
The Homeowners Choice
Hollow composite decking – The cheaper option to solid deck boards due to the multiple hollow channels running through the deck board which uses up to 40% less material, this makes them light weight and easy to install. Hollow deck boards are a homeowners choice but can be used in light commercial spaces where impact is low.
Hollow deck boards are ideal for gardens, patio areas, garden footpaths, caravan decking and more offering the natural appearance of timber but without the maintenance.
More Strength And Durability
Solid Composite decking – slightly more expensive than hollow deck boards. Solid deck boards are commercial grade and are used for residential or commercial environments with a high footfall and medium to high impact.
Offering less noise absorption, solid deck boards are ideal for gardens with hot tubs, schools, terraces, balconies, caravan parks, leisure centres, marinas, bars, restaurants, public spaces and any outdoor application. Guaranteed strength and durability in abundance still with the natural look of timber.
All Decking Ranges Are Of The Highest Quality
Both deck boards can be offered in a capped version which has no fading, staining and is colour consistent, due to its polymer protective 4 sided shell. Uncapped composite decking is vulnerable to staining and fading. The deck boards will fade slightly in the first few months but will then be colour consistent throughout. Spillages will need to be cleaned up in good time to avoid staining. Compared to other composite decking suppliers we have added more HDPE to our uncapped deck board mixture to reduce fading and staining.
Whether you choose hollow or solid, our composite decking offers unrivalled 25 year residential and 10 year commercial warranty reassuring you that your deck is engineered to last. Both deck boards are reversible with one side 3D embossed wood grain and the other grooved, grooved being more slip resistant.
