TimberTech decking gives patios and balconies a natural look. With its fine-textured and grained surface, the modern wood-plastic composite (WPC) combines the appearance of wood with the durability of plastic.

The decking is available from ThyssenKrupp Plastics as of June 2014. One special feature of TimberTech decking is its ease of installation. The boards can be fastened directly to a wooden sub-frame without pre-drilling. If the sub-frame cannot be fixed to the ground, for example on a balcony, floating installation is also possible.

Moreover, the decking is low-maintenance and weather-resistant, capable of withstanding persistent rain and hot sun without warping. The materials come with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. With protective polymer capping, such as on Earthwood Evolutions Terrain, the boards are also stain-resistant – stains can be simply wiped away.

The ThyssenKrupp Plastics range includes three typ es of decking: solid-core ReliaBoard, in roughly the same price segment as hollow-core boards, TwinFinish, which is particularly easy to install, and solid-core Earthwood Evolutions Terrain, which gives stains no chance.
