Composite floor coverings, i. e. composite decking, the popular WPC, is made out of a mixture of plastic and wood residues, the so-called wood fiber, which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product.
Composite decking is visually most similar to wood, but requires far less maintenance compared to real wood. The WPC is longer lasting, and therein lies its popularity. Thus, the name WPC from wood – plastic composites is actually a composite of wood and plastic, because as a material, it is composed of mixing wood and plastic and thus takes the best of both, but their ratio may be different, depending on the manufacturer. From the equal share of both materials in this mixture, their ratio can go up to 90% of one in relation to 10% of the other material, and the characteristics of the composite material directly depend on the wood and plastic ratio.
Thanks to the production process and combination of materials, decking WPC systems are considered more advanced than wood in terms of quality, shape stability, resistance to atmospheric influences such as large differences in temperature, snow, humidity, salt, physical damage, etc. That is why WPC decking has found wide use in furnishing the exterior, and especially in paving various terraces, paths and pool areas. Since they are placed on the substructure, it is possible to pull various installations under the decking and change the purpose of the space without major interventions in it.
Unlike wood itself, WPC decking does not need to be coated with oil or other preservatives, and the color does not change over time. What still distinguishes the composite compared to pure wood is its structure in which there are no irregularities, differences, knots, different colors, sizes, etc. Apart from composite floorboards, we can also offer WPC wallboards – facades and fences. Very quick installation on WPC and Alu substructure at the request of the clients as well as high anti-slip, even when the floor is wet, make this your choice for exterior cladding.
