Agriligna is the longest operating wood polymer composite manufacturer in South Africa with the most experience in the use of the technology for African conditions.  They have been in operation out of their Nylstroom/Modimolle plant in the Limpopo Province since 2002.  They started the ECOWOOD decking range after stringent field testing and 2 years of development.  There are already ECOWOODdecks that have been installed for more than 5 years, and therefore the company can back up its 5 year warranty on the decking with confidence. 

 

As opposed to most imported composite decks, ECOWOOD decking is manufactured from a PVC base, and not a polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene base(PE).  PVC is a proven outdoor polymer in the building industry, whilst PP and PE based composite decking has been found to fail in our harsh local conditions. Furthermore, ECOWOOD decking contains a polymer load of 45% as opposed to imported PP/PE composite decking that typically contains only 20% - 30% polymer.  The polymer load is a direct function of the moisture absorption and long term durability.

 

ECOWOOD decking can be machined like normal wood using normal woodworking machinery. ECOWOOD decking is installed with the proprietary EcoClip, which leaves room for movement and the decking is installed in a record fast time.  The span width used, is a standard 400 mm, thus not affecting the cost of the sub-structure. The deck contains UV stabilisation to ensure a longer life in African conditions and the minimum maintenance!

On large decking installations, the local manufacturing of ECOWOOD decking, allows planks to be supplied according to customs lengths to minimise cut-offs and waste!


ECOWOOD decking is available in various colours to suit every taste.
