EASY TO MAINTAIN

Why composite wood?
An innovative material with multiple qualities
Invented in Japan in 1975 by the inventor Nishibori Sadao who came from a family of exotic wood importers, composite wood has since its creation been seen as an ecological alternative to exotic wood which is endangered by deforestation.
Wood, an endangered material
Highly appreciated for its naturalness and its elegance, wood is nevertheless a degradable product, with a limited life span and problematic traceability. Insects, frost, water, and the passing of time are all factors that attack and damage wood decking, and against which it must be regularly treated. This is laborious maintenance, with products which can sometimes be harmful... Over time, your wood decking will have splinters, cracks and faded greying colours. It will be slippy when it is wet. Deterioration in its appearance which forces you to replace board at regular intervals.
Stronger and more refined, exotic wood is a material that is at the origin of sometimes anarchic deforestation.
A new material, and a new attractive alternative to exotic wood
An effective alternative to exotic wood, composite wood is a material composed of wood fibres and plastic resin.
It is produced from the recycling of wood offcuts (particularly those from saw mills), it appearance is similar to exotic wood whose success in recent decades has seriously threatened its forests with deforestation.
Composite wood: durable, strong, rot-proof...
Thanks to its sustainability, its imputrescibility and its strength arising from the plastic resin, composite wood is now often used for exterior cladding of private and public places, and more specifically for decking. Its malleability makes it a perfect material for the manufacturing of urban or interior furniture. It excellent water resistance and weather resistance makes it perfect for marinas, pontoons and other swimming pool decks.
N.B! Each composite wood is unique
Obtained by mixing plastic resin, pigments, wood chips in the form of wood meal... composite wood is not a raw material. It is the result of formulations specific to each manufacturer. Colour fastness, strength, shock resistance and resistance to sunlight... Each product on the market has its specific quality and its specific characteristics.
