BENEFIT OF EXPERIENCE
Having a long history means we have observed and participated in product development as the industry has taken an increasing share of decking and screening materials markets.
Our product range now contains only solid composite products; hollow decking in particular has in some cases developed problems after a few years.
In the last five years there has been further developments leading to a co-extrusion third generation of WPC. The product process produces a second generation core and then add a polymer based bonded coating as part of the co-extrusion process. These products are commonly referred to as “co-extruded” or “capped”.
In 2018 we have introduced latest technology co-extruded composite decking, where the wood plastic composite core is capped or coated with a protective layer which stops the slight fading that occurs with uncoated wood plastic composites in the first six months. The coating also protects against stains.
OUR DECKING RANGES
The new range of 3rd generation co-extruded or capped decking is called DECKER PROTECT – (READ MORE..). This decking is manufactured with a bonded coating for better looks longer.
We still sell the 2nd generation DECKER DESIGN range (READ MORE.. ) which is a solid uncoated composite decking product with woodgrain embossed finish and edge channels for invisible fixing with our “Invisi-Clips” hidden fastener system (see https://www.decker.com.au/hidden-clip-system ). This decking is affordable and good quality (denser and thicker than most competitor 2nd generation offerings)
We believe service and advice is important. Buying decking materials is often a unique experience and there are few places where you can get expert advice about the types of decking available, the pros and cons of different composite decking offerings and design and installation advice.
Our mantra is “ We are here to help” . We want to build our reputation and customer base in priority to just making the next sale.
