Ecodek – the UK’s market leader in Wood Polymer Composite (WPC) decking materials, have been manufacturing composite decking and fencing since 2004.
Based in Wrexham, North Wales, their factory manufactured over 1 million linear metres of ecodek® WPC decking in 2017, consuming 3600 tonnes of recycled wood and plastic.
Following years of painstaking development in design, manufacturing and distribution processes, Ecodek achieved “carbon negative” status for the production of their composite decking system – this important achievement is believed to be a first for a UK based Polymer company!
ecodek® is supplied through a Chain of Custody process which is the unbroken path between the “forest gate” and the end user, including all stages of processing, manufacture, storage, sales and distribution.
Having FSC™ and PEFC™ certification it enables Ecodek say “This product has been made with timber from well-managed forests and we can prove it.”
ecodek® is currently available as PEFC™ certified, although it can also be supplied as FSC™ controlled wood to clients who are pursuing FSC™ Project Certification or are themselves FSC™ certified.
The ecodek® system is widely used for the construction of apartment balconies, commercial and domestic terraces and a variety of applications where timber would otherwise be used.
The durability, strength and low maintenance attributes of ecodek® make it the preferred choice for these applications.
As suppliers to the Construction Sector, delivering a supply solution is Ecodek’s aim. Their USPs include bespoke lengths, a quick response to customer demand and solid technical advice. The Ecodek Technical Team have direct input with architects and specifiers, who need support and solutions to problems.
Offering ecodek® in bespoke lengths to suit each project, the company can ensure that waste is kept to a minimum on site. Any material that is redundant on site can be bought back by Ecodek to be ground up and fed straight back into new material as ecodek® is 100% recyclable. The solid boards are fast to install as they are supplied straight and true with no knots.
Thanks to its vast range of products and client focused approach, Ecodek is the market choice for high end residential developments in London where the majority of apartments feature a balcony. ecodek® material can be found across much of the redevelopment zones in London such as Greenwich Peninsula, Elephant and Castle, Nine Elms and Fulham Wharf.
Ultimately, Ecodek continue to be the UK’s Number 1 ‘MADE IN BRITAIN’ WPC manufacturer and to lead the way through innovative use of materials whilst maintain carbon negative product credentials. To achieve this, looking ahead the company’s focus will be on continuing to and using R&D to drive innovation.
