Decking and Cladding With Benefits
Anti-slip, maintenance-free, composite decking and cladding for safer outdoor sites
At Havwoods we are passionate about wood, we also acknowledge its shortcomings. One area where wood simply doesn’t perform well is decking. These extremely attractive decking boards look, feel and are fitted like wood, yet they do not rot, splinter, warp or host algae growth. This means that they are highly anti-slip, even in the wet, and so are ideal for commercial or public use. They are extremely fade- and stain-resistant and are essentially maintenance-free, requiring no sanding, staining or painting.
Trekker Decking & Cladding Boards
The Trekker range comprises of both decking and cladding boards suitable for both external and internal use. Passionate as we are about wood we are not convinced of its suitability for use as a decking product. Exposed to the elements timber can rot, warp, splinter and become highly slippery in the wet due to the growth of algae, but this attractive wood grain textured composite is made from wood and recycled plastic and so is far less susceptible. It is easy to install using fixing clips and even easier to maintain, requiring nothing more than an occasional wash with plain water. It is covered by a 15-year warranty and, thanks to negotiation with the manufacturer, is now even more cost-effective.
Trekker is UV treated for fade resistance so, although it will mellow slightly once installed, the colour will stabilise after just two or three weeks. Scratches may be lightly sanded and the colour will rapidly blend into the remaining deck or cladding.

Xscape Composite Decking Boards
Another wood fibre composite decking board, this one mixed with high-density polyethylene. In this American-made product the wood fibre is ground particularly finely, almost like flour, for a highly uniform appearance. This is coated with the polyethylene and Voyager products are then finished with an extremely durable polymer technology. The result is an exceptionally low-maintenance deck (soap and water is all you need) which can withstand even extreme weather conditions for decades.
The Xscape range carries a limited 25-year residential structural warranty whilst the Voyager products also enjoy a limited fade- and stain-resistant warranty over the same period. Voyager Grey and Voyager Brown, with their traditional woodgrain pattern, will lighten a little, but their colour will stabilise after two or three months.

“Many thanks for your help with matching the composite decking we required for the commercial leisure project carried out recently. The board was a pleasure to work with: easy to cut and fix and the fixings themselves of a very high quality. Indeed, the whole experience of dealing with Havwoods was a pleasure; your efficiency and prompt delivery enabled us to work within our time constraints with confidence.”A Mortimer
