Wood Flooring and Stone Sculpture floor are synthetic materials. Relatively speaking, consume fewer resources than the wooden floor, it is a low-carbon economy. The main difference is the use of the material above. From the name of view is very clear. WPC is mainly wood and plastic integration.
Yes, we believe our product is of a high standard and back that up with a warranty for your peace of mind. The Hollow and Solid Grade boards have a 10-year warranty provided it has been installed following our installation guidelines. For full terms and conditions please see the our Warranty page.
WPC has all the qualities of wood, but not its defects: it is long-lasting, stable and it does not warp, it has no splinters and does not lose color, it is sun, ice and rain resistant. WPC polymeric component allows it to better resist the deterioration due to the sea climate and salty water. Furthermore, it works as a protective layer against the proliferation of fungus and mould. Finally, the composite materials require no maintenance, painting and are 100% recyclable.
Yes, it is more expensive than softwood, although the treaty, but it has a very similar price to the fine exotic wood (teak or similar), or the kind of wood that can be used outside for decades without any deterioration.
WPC does not require any special maintenance, it is easy to clean thanks to the well-thought combination of wood and polyethylene, that restrain the growth of mould and fungus. It is suggested to clean it by using neutral floor detergents, and if using a high-pressure cleaner, it is necessary to keep the machine at least 30 cm away from the walking surface.
WPC does not lose color thanks to the pigments and UV absorbers contained in the polymeric composite. Is possible only a slight variation of tone certifiable in about a 7-10% due to the presence for 2/3 of the natural material as the wood flour, containing an internal "tannin" that is gradually released.
WPC resists the UV rays damage thanks to a special composition of pigments and UV absorbers.
Wood plastic composite has excellent resistance to fire, responds to the class of fire resistance Cfl-S1 determined in MD March 15, 2005 (OJ No. 73 of 30/03/2005): Requirements for fire resistance of construction products installed in activities governed by specific technical fire prevention according to the European classification system
WPC is water resistant thanks to encapsulated water-repellent fibers.
