Benefits of Modwood® DECKING
ModWood® is the distinctly sustainable natural timber decking alternative. Its high-wood base strongly mirrors natural timber. This sustainable decking material is much kinder to the environment than its natural timber counterpart. As long as it’s installed and used as recommended ModWood® will not warp or crack. ModWood® is also entirely splinter-free.
Composite decking is perfect for Australia’s unique conditions; ModWood® with Flame Shield® allows for the most flame retardant decking available in Australia for use in bushfire prone locations. Protection levels are as high as Bushfire-Attack-Level (BAL) 40.
Compared to other timber-based decking, Flame Shield® has the highest BAL rating on the Australian market. Flame Shield® decking can be installed with either an enclosed or unenclosed sub-structure and is offered in all four colours of the ModWood® Natural Grain Collection, with boards that measures 137 x 23mm. Flame Shield® also has a deeply embossed pattern on the board surface to improve slip resistance and is manufactured to R11, AS 4586:2013.

While ModWood® composite may initially cost more to purchase than traditional timber decking, it is a sounder financial investment in the long run. ModWood® has more long-term benefits, including minimal maintenance and none of the time or the financial costs of upkeep.
Global Green Tag certified ModWood® is created chiefly from recycled materials, including plastics and wood flour – thereby reducing demand for raw timber material. ModWood® uses specialised technology, which is founded on the most recent advances in additives for the wood-plastic industry, globally. All additives are thoroughly tested in ModWood® laboratories to result in a world-class product that is safe and extremely durable.
