About – Established in 2002, Ecodek have been manufacturing composite decking since 2004. As the UK’s market leader in Wood Polymer Composite decking materials, the firm manufactured over 1 million linear metres of decking in 2017, consuming 3200 tonnes of recycled wood and plastic.
As suppliers to the Construction Sector, delivering a supply solution is the firm’s aim. Their USPs include bespoke lengths, a quick response to customer demand and solid technical advice. With a dedicated resource on site, the R&D team excel in creating sustainable answers for the lifestyle challenges of today and the future.
Ecodek have achieved “carbon negative” status for the production of its composite decking system. A life-cycle assessment programme, undertaken by the BioComposites Centre of Bangor University, considered production of the decking on a cradle to factory gate basis, accounting for all significant materials, transport, energy use and packaging inputs. Results showed that production of ecodek® actually had a net effect of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere rather than adding to it – hence carbon negative – a huge achievement in modern manufacturing and one that clearly illustrates the company’s environmental credentials.
Products – Ecodek manufacture a range of products from a specifically developed innovative, 95% recycled high quality wood polymer composite material. Boards can be supplied in bespoke lengths to minimise waste, will not warp, splinter or rot and are an extremely low maintenance material that is 100% recyclable.
