Océwood invents OPTIMA PLUS, the new generation of composite decking. More than a decking board, real exterior parquet flooring. The last word in style and technology in composite and decking.
Protective polymer skin: an innovative patented finishing process
The new range of composite boards for OPTIMA PLUS decking is covered with a thin protective skin in polymer (PVC coextrusion) with multiple assets... a patented surface finishing process which give your composite decking an appearance and feel worthy of a natural wood floor.
The feel of wood, the strength of composite
The stylish colouring and the delicate ribs of the OPTIMA PLUS composite boards make it a product of incredible finesse, comparable to authentic wood.
Made up of 60% PVC and 40% wood meal from PEFC certified saw mills, it is extremely resistant to shocks and scratches.
A board that is easy to maintain, and more stain resistant
Curry, wine, grease, sauces.... all everyday stains in the summer period which can adhere to the boards on your deck and mark it temporarily despite cleaning.
Thanks to the technology of the OPTIMA PLUS boards, very greasy stains impregnate the boards less and are eliminated more easily with a sponge.
For a deck which ensures your well-being!
Its unique appearance, its durability over time and its great strength ensures you have a garden deck in perfect harmony with your well-being and your environment.
Just let your imagination express itself and you will be able create a deck which corresponds to your personality.
- Profile: 161 x 26 mm
- Length: 3 m
The boards are covered with a protective PVC skin which gives them a whole range of technical and aesthetic assets.
Very similar appearance to natural wood thanks to the ribs.
Coextrusion associated with very high quality pigments ensure the boards keep their colour remarkably well over time.
The use of special pigments for the darker colours reduces the temperature rise by 10°C. The board cells ventilate the board.
The Optima clip offers a 30% gain in installation time thanks to its quick and easy action.
The PVC skin (Coextrusion) protects the board and facilitates cleaning.
Océwood composite is machined in the same way as wood, which is ideal for cutting.
With a low resumption of humidity, the Océwood boards resist well the bad weather and are adapted to the saline environment.
Those composite boards are made up of recycled PVC and of natural fiber meal (flax shives).
5 Exclusive colours
New colours for a new range... The OPTIMA PLUS composite decking range is available in 5 colours, designed to blend perfectly into their environment.
From the warm Moka to the soft Ecume, the colours of the OPTIMA PLUS composite boards make the most of your exterior and transform your decking into a pleasant and unique living space.
Carbon Basalt Sea Foam Mocha Arabica
Only very slight colour attenuation
Unlike composite decking boards which are subject to the discharge of lignin from the wood, the OPTIMA PLUS boards are protected by a polymer skin. Colour retention is significantly improved, thus preventing pastellisation of your deck during the first months.
For the areas that are exposed to the sun...
As for any type of material, the dark colours absorb more heat from the sun than light colours, particularly for highly exposed areas. But the use of technical pigments in the darker colours of the Optima Plus range (Arabica, Carbone), reduces the temperature rise in the boards when they are subject to extreme heat.
The OCEWOOD® composite decking board is cellular. It does not retain heat in the same way as a solid composite board, thus facilitating a return to a tolerable temperature thanks to its interior ventilation.
Patented Optima Clip
Developed to facilitate board installation, the Optima clip for Océwood composite boards is asymmetrical and fulfils several functions:
- Its flexible seal prevents the board slipping when it expands
- Its 2 fins absorb the board's lateral expansion. There is no need to measure the required expansion space, the Optima clip does it for you.
- Its special ergonomy allows you to screw one side and clip the other, to allow quick, comfortable and effective deck installation.
- It is unobtrusive, and hardly visible once the deck installation is finished. This allows an aesthetic, uncluttered appearance.
- Easy to dismantle: You only unscrew one line of clips to remove the adjacent boards. You then just have to reposition the clips at their original place, between the boards, and rescrew them to refit your planks.

As for all composite products, the OPTIMA EKO decking boards expand and contract according to variations in temperature and damp.
It is therefore necessary to allow a longitudinal expansion spaces at the end of your boards when installing them.
The Optima Eko boards are coextruded and therefore watertight. After cleaning or rain, it is possible that water lies on the boards until it evaporates, as for any impermeable material.
Expansion clearance in mm:
(L): Length of decking in metres
(D): Peripheral expansion in mm
The Optima board settles down exclusively with the associated Optima clips.
Find the details of the Optiml clip in the "Fixing" chapter of this page.
"To ensure a well laid decking above all you need well laid joists".
Installing the joists is definitely the most important operation in the installation of your decking.
