Wood plastic composite decking is also resistant to moss and algae growth which not only looks unsightly but can make surfaces slippery under foot, especially in wet conditions. If your backyard is sloped, as are many homes in the greater St. Louis area, landscaping alone will minimize your ability to use your outdoor wpc decking.
Another reason is composite wood decking offers greater slip resistance than wood is the fact that the surface texture of the material is rougher than wood, providing improved grip. This improved slip performance was important to the centre as the safety of the children is paramount.
Compared to Wood WPC decking
Compared to wood applications, WPC decking is even extremely safe as the material does not splinter and its anti slip properties are twice as good, especially in wet weather conditions. We produce composite wood deck planks that don't become slippery and where people can step on with bare feet without any problem.
The decking boards were fixed to standard composite wood profiles used as bearers at 600mm centres. 5mm gaps were left between decking boards to allow for water run-off. Decorative extras were added by the team, who cut, plained and sanded the composite wood profiles. The balustrades were made from edging boards with 100 x 100 posts used to support the roof section. The great strength of the profiles, a result of the composite wood mix and the intrusion moulding process, makes it fit for this purpose.
