Affordable, easy cladding

Homes fitted with Teckwood’s fire rated high-quality composite cladding look like the result of a lot of tireless work and hard-labour, but it is actually incredibly easy to install. The composite cladding uses a simple starter clip which securely locates the first board in place. Subsequent boards are fixed in place using a concealed stainless steel screw giving a flawless, fixing free finish.

When the Teckwood range of cladding is installed on a batten it makes a huge difference to the performance of the building. The cavity allows air flow between the two finishes preventing moisture and mould build up as well as improving the buildings thermal performance.

Affordability is always an issue when undertaking a sizeable home refurbishment or remodelling project. The costs can be surprisingly high when it comes to re-facing the exterior of a building. If you are looking to carry out a basic re- pointing or rendering, breathing new life into your home can be unexpectedly expensive.

Teckwood Class B composite cladding, on the other hand, is quite the opposite. Teckwood’s stylish and affordable alternative cladding is a value for money way of adding a sleek, modern edge to any home without breaking the bank.

Modular Construction

The popularity of modular buildings is now evident for many of the UK construction sectors.

Temporary or permanent modular buildings are proving to be the choice for many types of sector requirements where end users are looking to quickly overcome problems relating to increased demand in their business or organisation.

Teckwood are working with major modular building manufacturers to provide a solution for the health and education sectors seeking to overcome the high demands being placed on them, alongside that the requirements for hotels, offices, log homes and mobile homes.

Temporary or modular buildings are now firmly in evidence in many applications throughout the UK, and their popularity shows no signs of diminishing as increasing numbers of companies and end users discover their benefits for themselves.

Given the critical nature of requirements for buildings which are modern, functional, efficient, smart and have a guaranteed speed of delivery and meet costs to suit budgets, modular buildings tick all the boxes.

Because these structures are manufactured offsite by companies such as Tingdene Homes to the highest specifications, they can also be installed without causing disruption to daily routines on customer’s locations.

What’s more, modular buildings can be created to fit into small spaces with unusual shapes.

Teckwood understand that customers greatly appreciate the possibility of sourcing these cutting-edge facilities both quickly and cost-effectively. Manufactured with ultra quick lead times and supplied as an extension or an add-on to meet peaks in demand.

Other major benefits of modular buildings include energy compliance, meeting the latest regulations and the ability to create buildings that are designed to meet the precise specifications of client’s requirements.

The beauty of temporary buildings is that they can be removed and reused elsewhere – as the need arises.

It’s the flexibility of a modern approach that gives modular building its greatest benefits, and this is particularly relevant when it comes to urgent and difficult projects.

The length of time it takes to install new modular buildings will vary according to requirements and the ease of access to the site. It will always be quicker than conventional construction projects. The benefits of a quick installation combined with minimal onsite disruption are not to be overlooked.

They are also other major reasons for the increasing popularity of modular buildings within all sectors, but those thinking of looking at manufacturing in the modular route should talk to Teckwood’s cladding design team directly.

Is Your Decking Safe

Did you know that every three minutes in the UK a person is seriously injured due to slipping!

Teckwood’s dual sided composite has been tested on both sides to comply with the Health and Safety Executives recommended PTV (Pendulum Test Value) of plus 36 using the 4S slider. The testing to BS8204 includes obtaining a value on dry and wet floors and contaminated floors along both the width and length of the decking.

Consider Wood Plastic Composite

Wood will never lose its instinctive appeal as a building material. We all appreciate its natural characteristics and we have built with it, and used it to decorate our buildings for many thousands of years. We enjoy its beauty, its warmth and its texture.

Yet for architects and builders there are numerous drawbacks to using wood, it can rot, warp, twist and it needs constant maintenance. Wood plastic composites can offer significant advantages. These extend from financial and environmental benefits to superior qualities in terms of design, installation and durability.

Hardwood can be very expensive, it is not normally FSC® certified and if it is imported from overseas, the final price is often not known until it is “landed”. Prices can fluctuate rapidly too. For some structural building components the wood has to be knot-free as knots are points of weakness, meaning that not all of the raw material can be used. Holding stocks of timber is a costly exercise and supplies are not easily transferable on to other projects.

In comparison, wood composite cladding is less expensive, being manufactured from highly abundant recyclable plastics and more importantly to our environment FSC® certified. The price is relatively stable and known in the time-frame of most projects.

For design purposes wood plastic composite cladding is easy to use and very adaptable. It has a high strength to weight ratio which is a huge advantage in many exterior façade projects. Its weight will remain constant once installed and no tolerances have to be built-in for weight increase, which may occur when wooden structures absorb moisture.

Keeping costs within budget, and for the long term, is increasingly important to major suppliers in order to improve margins and protect markets. Wood plastic composite cladding delivers on all fronts. Manufacturing and maintenance costs are reduced and consistent, installation is rapid and environmental credentials are highlighted. By choosing Teckwood any project for which wood was the original design vision can be brought to fruition, by combining the performance of composite cladding with the look of wood.

Please feel free to contact us to talk about composite claddings and we will be happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.

Best Composite Decking

Durability is the key

Any good garden decking should be able to stand up to the harshest of nature’s elements but sadly, traditional softwood decking has the tendency to warp, split and weather when it’s been outside for a relatively short period of time. Teckwood’s wood plastic composite deck boards have no such weathering issues. Their sturdy, hard-wearing construction is designed to handle even the most adverse weather conditions. Of course, our decking would not be the best if it wasn’t extremely warp-resistant and robust, the coldest of weather here in the UK cannot even crack your deck.

Price is always an issue

The secret is out, wood plastic composite decking is slightly more expensive than traditional decking products, but what would it cost to replace a traditional timber deck when it fails after just a few short years? Buying our boards may mean a little higher initial outlay but consider that they never need replacing, this is a one off purchase with no future costs.

Easy installation

There are no difficult fiddly fixings when installation a Teckwood decking. The concealed stainless steel fixings clip the decking boards together giving you a finished surface that will not crack or splinter.

Minimum maintenance

The first thing you will notice about a Teckwood deck is that it needs the minimum of maintenance, just an occasional jet wash or brush will keep it looking beautiful. Your boards will never need staining or sealing leaving you to enjoy those long summer days.

No matter what the weather throws at us your Teckwood dual sided anti slip decking boards perform admirably, greatly reducing the risk of a fall and don’t forget it’s barefoot friendly too for you, your family and your pets.

Step With Confidence

Any product offering two distinct finishes is addressing a two-sided market. This realisation highlighted a potential sales opportunity for Teckwood. Is there a dual-sided anti slip composite decking on the market available to developers and end-users?

There was not, but now! YES.

The wonderful thing about being a composite solutions provider is that it allows Teckwood, who have a deep understanding of the industry and a sound reputation, to create what we think is a world first. A wood plastic composite (WPC) decking board that is not only dual sided but BOTH sides are anti slip certified.

The goal for the research and development department was to design and create a board that could be used safely whichever face that you decide to use.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) advises and recommends a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) should be used when testing floor surfaces that need to meet a minimum test value of 36 when the floor is dry, wet or contaminated.

Teckwood’s new composite decking board achieved a PTV rating of 36 on both sides, a 1 in 1 million chance of slipping. Whether you choose from our smart modern enhanced grain finish or a traditional castellated finish you can be confident in using it in most circumstances.

You can step with confidence on either side of our decking as it offers outstanding anti slip performance as well as being completely barefoot friendly.

Teckwood, your market leading composite solutions provider is the ideal choice for that perfect anti slip decked area.
