|Simply put, Wood/Plastic Composite (WPC) decking is a factory
processed semi-synthetic decking solution. Various types of plastic are
used in different products, and usually combined with wood fibre or particles
in order to then create a highly durable 'plank' which can be
installed as decking in the place of traditional solid timber decking.
Probably one of the greatest drawing cards for this type of solution is
the LOW MAINTENANCE appeal which this product provides. Being
predominantly plastic, it does not require oiling, sanding or sealing in
anyway, and promises to be serve you well with little care other than
keeping it clean. There are downsides too - it does not hold the same
aesthetic appeal of solid natural timber for one. Secondly, composite
products are generally rather pricy - certainly more costly than most of
the good hardwoods available on the market today.
Timberman has long debated the value of Composite Decking as a viable
decking solution in the South African (particulary Highveld)
Despite the vast number of composite products, both local and imported,
Timbermann has remained sceptical about the long term viability of such
solutions. As a result we used to maintain an arms length when it came to synthetic or composite decking solutions.
However, we have recognised that the popularity and demand for
such solutions in South Africa has been steadily on the increase, and in
response to this, Timbermann has aligned itself with the leading
minds in the field of plastic composite extrusion solutions.
As a result, Timbermann is proud to be associated for a number of years
now, with the American manufactured ENVIRODECK
range of products. These products have evoked our
confidence with regards to manufacturing standards, UV stability and guaranteed
sales and after sales service. The American manufacturing process out
strips all of the local and Chinese made composites we have encountered -
by some distance!
