Ekodeck Decking / Classic / Greystone
Ekodeck Decking / Designer Series / Leatherwood
As the name suggests, Ekodeck Classic is a longstanding timber decking and screening alternative that has been tried and tested in New Zealand conditions for more than ten years (since 2009, to be exact). During this time, it has proven to be cost-effective, durable, dependable, and hardwearing.
Ekodeck Classic is a traditional WPC (wood-plastic composite), and is made from a mixture of 50/50 reclaimed timber and recycled plastic. The sanded finish of the boards provides a high anti-slip rating (R11 & P5) for greater safety to outdoor areas.
Ekodeck Classic boards come in two colours, Greystone and Highland Oak. Each board is the same composition and colour, giving you a consistent look for your outdoor areas, and allowing you to sand out any scratches or marks!

Ekodeck Designer Series
Ekodeck Designer Series gives you many similar features of the Ekodeck Classic range, but with a few key points of difference. One of the favourites being the six different colours that provide warm, natural timber tones with subtle variations from board to board for a high-end, designer finish.
Our Designer Series boards are a co-extruded composite board, as they have the Durashell™ coating which wraps around the same WPC core as our Ekodeck Classic boards, and gives you a strong, durable shield against staining and discolouration.
The Durashell™ coating wraps and protects the entire board and shields the core from moisture, UV, and the elements to withstand the harshest climates in New Zealand. This extra protection means the Ekodeck Designer Series comes with a warranty of up to 25-years.
