Composite deck boards have been scientifically tested and verified to outperform timber and all other wood decking products against a range of criteria.
What is it Made From?
Where AT® composite deck boards cannot be beaten is in the quality of the materials and the extrusion process itself.
Plastic content is High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) sourced only in the UK to the highest specification combined with high quality beech wood ‘flour’.
Beech wood ‘flour’ is used as the fibre content and is processed to a very high and demanding specification.
Hardwood Beech ‘flour’ gives the best consistency of strength and colour-fast properties possible, unlike softwood or multi-sourced natural fibres which are used in many imported products.
UK Composite supply high quality wood polymer composite (WPC) products that are manufactured in the UK.
WPC is a synergistic blend of plastic and wood giving the best properties of both and eliminating many of the normal drawbacks generally found with wood or plastic alone.
Examples of WPC applications include:
- outdoor furniture
AT® Composite deck boards are solid (not hollow) for added strength and durability. Composite decking will be an investment you will love.
AT® WPC products contain a high percentage of recycled materials making Composite Decking an environmentally friendly product as well as a long-lasting one.
It is from these waste ingredients we create our stunning composite deck boards.
Going Green with Composite Boards
Choosing AT® composite deck boards won’t cost the environment as the board is made from reclaimed hardwood and polymer from recycled polyethylene(usually plastic milk bottles).
Less energy and resources are used in the manufacture of composite boards than for recycled plastic decking resulting in less carbon emissions and less impact on the environment.
AT® Composite boards also has a built-in resistance to moisture, eliminating the need for staining or sealants, therefore there will be no nasty chemicals leaching into soil or ponds.
Since 2011 the materials used in composite decking products have achieved FSC® and PEFC certification meaning customers can be assured that all the wood fibres used in our products come from sustainable and well managed forests.
As a top quality composite decking product, our AT® composite deck boards do not need staining, painting or treating during its long life. The polymer content limits moisture absorption to very small amounts i.e. below 1% compared with over 25% for untreated timber*.
*Water absorption is the cause of warping, swelling and distortion in timber products and is the main reason expensive and time consuming treatments are specified to validate any guarantee offered with timber products.

Why AT® Composite Deck Boards?
The Low Maintenance Choice
AT® composite deck boards is ‘sun bleaching’ and water damage resistant and will maintain its colour and beauty for many years to come.
No need to paint, stain or seal – a chore required each year with traditional timber decking. The nature of composite decking means you will not need to replace rotting, split or uneven boards saving you time and money.
Heat and Fade Resistant
Whichever colour you choose, it will stay naturally beautiful for years to come and with virtually no maintenance.
Your AT® composite deck boards will also stay cool to the touch – even on the hottest of days.
Composite decking has slip-resistant walking surfaces and, unlike traditional wood, is splinter-free, so you can relax and enjoy. Because composite decking surface is slip-resistant it is ideal for pool decks and spa surrounds.
Traditional timber decks start out looking beautiful – but within a short time you will start to notice a difference. Rainy springs, hot summers and cold winters quickly have a detrimental effect leaving the timber deck splintered, warped and tired looking. Our composite decking is made from a patented process that results in superior, consistent, low-maintenance material. All composite decking products come with a 25 year warranty.
Increasing the Value of Your Home
AT® Composite decking will add value to your home. Much of your decking investment will be recouped if you sell your home. With an estimated national average of nearly 80% returns on investment for deck additions.
