Until 20 years ago, the only real option was timber when it came to Landscape products, but these days you are spoilt for choice on materials that are engineered to outlast timber. Composite Wood is one of these materials – let’s explore why.
Composite Wood is a low-maintenance and sustainable alternative to timber for landscaping projects. Due to the make-up of the base raw material, Composite Wood can come in a variety of colours, which typically have minimal fading – around 3% to 5%. You can also choose up to four textured finishes to suit your customer’s needs. As it’s manufactured through an extrusion process, it’s dimensionally consistent, has a non-slip rating of R12, is fire and termite resistant, making this product an easy decision for your projects.
TIME, MAINTENANCE & COST SAVINGS
Composite Wood products offer reduced costs when compared to timber products. They are quicker to install due to the fixing systems (Decking, Cladding, Screening, Fencing) and have no wood knots, twisting or warping to battle with. They don’t leach, therefore they won’t “bleed” onto other surfaces, which could cost you time and money in repairs.
Composite Wood does not require bi-annual or annual re-sealing, it can simply be washed with a pressure washer and any stubborn stains can be removed with hot, soapy water.
RECYCLED AND GREEN
COEN Composite Wood products are also environmentally friendly, as they are manufactured from 88% recycled wood and plastics, giving new life to plastic waste that otherwise might end up in landfill.
