Tropical hardwood look decking

When you're shopping for outdoor flooring products, you can't beat the authenticity of 100% wood decking.

Or can you? Tropical hardwood decking is certainly attractive - few would deny that. But those beautiful boards have their downsides, and depending on your priorities, composite decking may be a far better bet for your outdoor space.

 

The environmental impact

Hardwood decking contributes to deforestation, so if you're trying to be an eco-friendly consumer, bear in mind that it's not a particularly green choice.

Worse still, decking boards are among the products that are sometimes born of illegal logging practices in tropical rainforests.

By contrast, our composite decking boards are produced using reclaimed wood fibres that would otherwise have gone into landfill sites. No trees are cut down to make our products.
