Slate Black Composite Decking Composition
These innovative composite decking boards are made from 55% recycled wood, 40% HDPE, and ~5% additives, so they’re not only good for the environment but also incredibly durable.
The composition of the boards can vary slightly for each colour, depending on the additives used to create the colour. So if you’re looking for a unique, eye-catching deck that will last for years to come, SmartDeck® decking is the perfect choice!
All of our composite deck boards come in 4m or 2m lengths, but can easily be cut down to custom sizes with standard carpentry tools. And, unlike classic wood decking, you don’t have to worry about composite boards warping or cracking over time.
They’re also incredibly easy to install – even if you’re not a professional tradesman. Simply secure the boards using hidden fixings for a clean and professional installation that will last the test of time.
Do not attached composite decking boards directly to the subframe with screws, always use the clips or fitting systems provided to secure the deck to the joists.
The clips allow the deck to expand or contract by about 5mm. 5mm Gap, allow a 5mm gap at the end of each board to expand and contract during hotter weather conditions.
Gradient allow for a 1 in 100 (1%) gradient to allow water to drain off the deck.
As with all brands of composite decking, SmartDeck’s range will lighten and lose up to 30% of its colour in the first 6 months before stabilising to its final colour.
Composite products are made in different batches. Batches can differ in size, shade, texture and colour. We highly recommend ordering all of your decking together to avoid subtle differences in appearance.
Composite Decking Boards have a width tolerance of up to 2%.
