These composite timber decking choices provide the timber look without the maintenance issues of real timber
Futurewood supplies a quality range of environmentally-friendly, low-maintenance timber-alternative building products including composite timber screening, cladding and decking. Now with two distinctly different composite timber decking ranges to choose from, Futurewood has a product that’s bound to suit your needs.
CleverDeck Original composite decking has been a bestseller as it looks like timber but is more ecologically sustainable and low-maintenance by comparison. Finished with a coarse, sanded texture that makes the product look and feel like a timber plank, it’s supplied in long lengths with grooved edges that work seamlessly with Futurewood’s concealed fix clipping system. The long boards and easy-to-use clips add further value by reducing installation time and saving on labour costs. Made from recycled plastic, rice husks and hardwood sawdust, CleverDeck Original composite timber decking has colour pigments running through the decking board, eliminating the need for oiling or painting. It won’t rot, splinter or cup, making it a great option for any garden, plus the concealed fixing provides a nice clean finish with no nails or screws to catch any toes! With five standard colours to choose from, the 138mm-wide x 23mm-thick x 5400mm-long solid composite timber decking board can be easily matched to any garden decor.
Futurewood CleverDeck Xtreme is a newly released “capped” composite decking board. CleverDeck Xtreme is a co-extruded decking, meaning it has a hard outer shell made from virgin polymers that completely encapsulate a traditional composite timber core. The Xtreme cap is made from a blend of different polymers designed to make it super tough and much harder to scratch than traditional composite timber. It’s virtually waterproof, meaning it is very hard to stain and easy to clean. The cap’s virgin polymer blend allows the use of vibrant colour hues with subtle streaking, creating a totally new decking “look”.
The Xtreme board is available in seven amazing colours supplied in a scalloped back, grooved-edge profile in the same board dimensions as the Original range, allowing the Futurewood deck clip system to work seamlessly between either decking product.
Futurewood offers quality alternatives to traditional timber products. The new CleverDeck Xtreme range gives you twice as many reasons to talk to Futurewood about your next decking project.
