Benefits Of Composite Decking
In the past decade, composite decking has made big strides in the industry with the look and feel of the material. We understand that some customers concern was achieving a real wood appearance. With the introduction of Ultra Decking’s new natural Signature range, these concerns are quickly eradicated.

There is no question if customers like it, they love it. The colour, texture of the new natural line rivals some of the best exotic woods that will retain its beauty and appearance for many years.
The key reasons that customers are switching to a composite deck are little or no maintenance, anti-slip resistance and a long product life that is green, sustainable and friendlier to our environment.
Its long-life span is a testament to the quality and the leaps in technology that composite decking has undertaken since its first introduction in the mid to late 1990s. A quality composite decking offers a lifespan of beyond 25 years when comparing that to wood’s lifespan of 8 to 12 years. It’s easy to see why composite has become so popular.
The choices for Composite decking have been further transformed with the introduction of shielded or capped (co-extrusion) composite decking. Capped composite decking acts as a shield or barrier around the decking boards centre or honeycomb core. The term “shield” means exactly that, each decking board has a capped or shield surrounding the entire board which offers protection from mother nature’s harshest elements increasing the life span of your new deck. The shield also offers protection from mould, mildew, spills, stains and UV fading.
