Award-winning composites supplier, Dura Composites, has expanded its Dura Deck range to include Dura Deck Resist, a co-extruded decking board with an innovative 360 degree outer angle which protects its core from the elements, as well as a new and improved Dura Deck Eco.
Dura Deck Eco has been design engineered to reach the highest standard for wood plastic composite decking and is produced to be both ecological and economical. Available in two widths and in three colours: teak, charcoal and stone, the innovative formula and manufacturing process results in some of the lowest water absorption rates in the industry, thus minimising the risk of expansion. Using state-of-the-art product design, proprietary product formulas and precise manufacturing techniques Dura Composites has been able to achieve an additional 60% strength for Dura Deck Eco versus similar designs from competitors.
Dura Deck Resist is Dura Composites’ premium decking board choice for those who require a high specification. This deck is produced from recycled materials via a co-extrusion process and is colour fade resistant, strength load resistant, stain resistant and also highly slip-resistant. It is available in six colours to suit all tastes, all of which feature a stunning deeply embossed wood grain on one side and a light groove on the reverse for maximum versatility.
Dura Deck Resist is engineered to resist the ignition of fire and has been rigorously tested for peace of mind and confidence – particularly for those installing commercial decking areas - meaning that Dura Deck Resist achieves Bfl-s1 according to BS EN 13501. Any project involving a balcony or raised terrace area that’s open to the public or forms part of a public building is required to use a decking that’s fire rated to Class B, so by choosing Dura Deck Resist you can be confident you’re ticking all the right boxes for your customer.
Both ranges have a unique vortex void to optimise their strength over their warranty period in all conditions and for all applications. Additionally, all Dura Deck composite timber boards are reversible, so you can give your client the choice of two attractive finishes.
Managing Director, Stuart Burns, explains the importance for landscapers of choosing the right product for their project
“Products at the cheaper end of the market are prone to scratching and fading and will not have been subjected to the rigorous testing methods that customers in 2019 have come to expect. The extra strong outer protective layer of a board like new Dura Deck Resist improves its ability to resist mould, mildew, water and scratches, and cements our position as a market leading brand.
“Professional Landscapers should opt for a recognised brand that offers a compelling warranty and detailed installation guidance. At Dura Composites we offer free samples, so you and your customer can spend time looking at the colour and finish of the deck together.”
The new Dura Deck Eco and Dura Deck Resist ranges are now available through International Timber, as well as selected Jewson stores.
