Wood Plastic Composite Cladding.

Teckwood have created an engineered wood-plastic composite (WPC) material made from 100% FSC® certified timber and 40% recycled high density polyethylene plastic. Other materials include UV stabilizer, colouring and anti-fungal agents. It combines the best features of wood and polyethylene, making the product an ideal choice for outdoor use.

There are 4 contemporary colours available. We are able to produce special colours if the quantity required exceeds our minimum order requirements. For further information, please contact us.

Teckwood’s wood plastic composite cladding boards are finished with an enhanced woodgrain effect to offer a traditional rich decorative timber finish.

Traditional softwood and hardwood cladding expands as it absorbs water, it may also rot over time as well as requiring a high level of maintenance to keep it immaculate. Teckwood’s wood plastic composite cladding is made from 100% FSC® certified timber and 40% recycled high density polyethylene plastic and, thus, will not rot. It is also a very low maintenance European Class B fire rated cladding.

Our products have a much higher ignition rate than standard timber. Its self-ignition temperature is 450°C/840°F, thus it is less likely to catch fire. Our wood plastic composite cladding carries a fire class specification of B-s2,d0.

Yes. The initial cost of our composite cladding may be marginally higher than wood (although, it is cheaper than hardwood) but because Teckwood’s low maintenance eco-friendly wood plastic composite cladding requires no sanding, treating, oiling or sealing the total life cycle costs of our composite cladding are far less than that of traditional softwood. Teckwood’s cladding is the perfect cost-effective option.

Our wood plastic composite cladding is made in batches, slight colour variations may occur. We use FSC® certified timber in making a natural product and once any colour bleaching has taken place, usually about 10% in the first 3 months, the UV stabiliser keeps the colour infused cladding looking rich and vibrant in colour.

What may appear to be rust is actually surface corrosion. When stainless steel comes in contact with chloride (which is found in seawater) or chlorine (which is used in swimming pools), the protective chromium oxide layer gets penetrated and allows a corrosive attack to occur. Thoroughly rinsing all your deck with fresh water after it is exposed to salt or chlorinated water is the best way to prevent corrosion.
