ecodek® Composite : Low Profile Support Beam  

 

Wood polymer composite (WPC) support beam, manufactured in the UK from a blend of wood fibres and high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. A low maintenance alternative to timber, it has been used in a wide range of environments including outdoor dining, leisure areas, balconies and decking.

The wood fibres are waste from a timber processor with FSC/ PEFC certification and the HDPE is sourced from recycled milk bottles.

Available in a range of colours and lengths, consult manufacturer for exact details.
