1. GENERAL ADVICE; WPC and WPC vs TIMBER
We have a number of Information Papers which we have prepared to provide general information about WPC. Wood Plastic Composite products are generally a really good alternative to timber. Specifically low maintenance, termite resistance and no splinters or screw heads on the surface make composite products appealing. Add to that the ability to select a colour to match and integrate with your design means wood plastic composite products represent a material that architects and designs should understand and consider specifying.
