What is it made of?
NexGen Decking is crafted from 60% recovered hardwood fibre and 40% UV-stabilised high density polyethylene.
What are the advantages over traditional timber decking?
Long straight lengths, quick and easy installation, never warps, never rots, splinter free, no sanding, no painting, no sealing, no staining, long lasting, scratch resistant, termite resistant, with a 20 Year Warranty
What maintenance is required?
Virtually none, only occasional cleaning with soap and water or a pressure clean. During the summer time in Perth it will not fade so there is no oiling needed.
How do they compare to other composite decking?
Our composite decking products are the only ones on the market that solves the three problems composite decking customers complain most about: colour fade, staining, and mould/mildew. Each board has a non porous surface layer that is co-extruded into the wood fibre (golf ball cover technology). The nonporous cover is what sets our boards apart from all other composites. You can get a lot of Composite deck materials and different qualities. Buying composite decking is like choosing what car you want; you can get the Mercedes or a Daihatsu, they both get you where you want to go but it is the journey that is different. It is the same with Composite decking. Nex Gen is the Mercedes of Composite Decking.
Will the surface peel or wear off?
The surface will not peel off due to the fact that the surface layer is co-extruded into the wood fibre. Under normal conditions, the surface will last indefinitely. If exposed to high wear or abrasion, some wearing is possible. If any of the substrate becomes exposed, this is no cause for alarm because it contains the same UV stabilizers as the rest of the composition and is not affected.
How does the price compare to traditional timber decking ?
Our pricing is similar to a good quality hardwood such as Jarrah
How is it fixed?
Each board is pre-grooved on both sides to take a hidden fastener system. There may be some occassional screws on the outsides of the board however not as much as when installing a natural wood decking.
How does temperature affect the boards?
NexGen deck boards are sold all over the world where harsh freezing winters and boiling hot summers have put them to the test. The deep wood grain and thin profile combined with IR-reflective pigments help to keep the products cool underfoot even on hot summer days. So for our Perth summer there is no reason why Nex Gen will fade or twist in the blazing heat.
Are they slippery when wet?
No more slippery than normal timber
Can Nex Gen be installed on a steel frame ?
There are fixings that are specifically for a steel frame so there is no issue on having Nex Gen installed.
Can I paint or stain the boards?
Only cut edges will respond properly to matching stains or quality oil based paint.
