The Benefits • Rot and Rustproof • Easy to cut • Anti corrosive • High malleability • Lightweight • Easy to fasten • No coating required • High ductility • 100% recyclable • Easy to transport • High strength to weight ratio • Competitively priced in Australia You can use traditional galvanised or timber joists, bearers and posts. However, using these types of materials they can corrode, rust or rot.
Yes, we can. Depending on volume we can get any size you like. However, with all brands of composites there is some expansion and shrinkage depending on the temperature. The longer and thicker the product is the more with will shrink and expand. 5.5m lengths can expand as much +/- 15mm. However with our lengths you only get +/- 2mm. Also important to note that solids expand more than the hollow composites
Our composites are a solid colour throughout the structure. There is some inital weathering for the first year, then the colour will stabilise. The change is so gradual that you will not notice. You should also clean your deck reguarly as dust and dirt will make the appearance lighter.

We are in the process of getting Bushfire Attack Level testing. We are expecting a BAL 29 and will update this FAQ when we have the report.
Yes it can. Only some types of cladding are suitable though such as ECW WP-03, WP-04 and WP-05 models which interlock on both sides.
The initial cost is more for composite but if you do a life cycle analysis composites are cheaper and last longer over time
Yes we can. We will show you what needs to be done and how to do it with our best practices. We can come out on site for hands on tutorials. We provide detailed drawings, 3D visuals, photos to assist you with building your new deck
Yes we can get it in. There are some advantages and disadvantages. For one, it is very strong. The disadvantages are that it is quite heavy, more strain on cutting tools, more expansion during hot days and that it costs more
