Why Choose NeoTimber® Essential?

The Essential range comes equipped with a hollow ‘tube’ design, which promises a lightweight composition without the compromise on strength and durability. What’s more, we remove a fraction of the material within the core in order to better match the strength of the board’s solid alternative. Traditional Composite Decking Hollow Tube DESIGN Hollow Tube Less Material Removed Woodgrain Finish A deep, textured woodgrain is a sight rarely seen on hollow composite deck boards. With many manufacturers tending to simply print a wood-effect finish on to the surface of their boards. The Essential stands head and shoulders from the rest with an etched, deep finish.
Best Price Composite Decking EMBOSSED Etched 3D Woodgrain
A unique material finish and deep texture (as well as a resistance to the damaging effects of algae growth) equip our Essential board with excellent slip-resistance, ensuring that your outdoor space remains a safe place to entertain, live and play. Excellent Slip Resistance Anti-Slip Finish Durable And A hollow board with the same warranty as its solid alternatives? That’s a seal of quality that is matched by few in the industry. We have worked to continuously improve our Essential range to ensure it competes on almost all fronts with its bigger brother, the Classic board. Wood or Composite Deck Long Lasting Added Strength Secure Fixing Reversible Some people prefer a wood grain finish – some prefer grooves. Our Essential range of composite deck boards has both on a single plank… One side is a realistic wood-grain finish for a natural look, while the reverse is a grooved pattern for a more contemporary feel.
