What Is WPC Decking?

What Is Composite Decking?

Assured Composite®s wood plastic composite (WPC) decking 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 decking with the durability and resilience of composite decking.​

Eco Friendly & Low Maintenance

Wood plastic composite decking is a more eco-friendly choice over natural timber decking as no trees are felled and at the end of its life can be recycled. Natural timber decking has a short life span and needs to have a lot of time and money spent treating and cleaning it as opposed to composite decking which has been designed and manufactured to be near on maintenance free and last the test of time.

Recycled And Recyclable Decking

There are currently two types of composite decking available to choose from; first generation and second generation, with both being made with recycled plastic and wood mix.

First generation WPC decking was the first of its kind and designed as an alternative to all timber decks. The mixture of wood and plastic with a wood grain finish made the decking tougher than timber and offered a lower water absorption rate, all with no compromise to the look which is just as good as the real thing.

Second generation WPC decking was an improved product upon the first generation because of the addition of its outer polymer shell and deep 3D embossed finish. The large and hard molecules that capped the soft and porous core reduce water absorption, making the decking last even longer than the first generation but these also provide a cleaner more aesthetically pleasing finish to the product.

Strong & Durable Composite Decking

Our ranges of WPC decking has more recycled plastic which makes the deck boards even more durable while still offering the natural look of wood decking with its truly stunning reversible finishes (3D embossed wood grain and grooved).
