The company’s ‘virtual garden’ on Stand AT35 will showcase a range of possibilities manufactured from the WPC system. From fencing, decking and balustrades to complete garden rooms, all Composite Wood Company products are available within 48 hours, are easy to install and offer guaranteed long-life function. The company has enjoyed significant growth in 2015, fuelled by the growing popularity of WPC as a good-looking, hard-wearing timber-alternative material for outdoor spaces. The company believes that there are huge opportunities to installers who wish to diversify into addedvalue lifestyle products. “Ambitious installers are always on the look-out for the next home improvement trend and we believe composite wood products are the ideal complement to bi-fold doors and artificial turf as a means of transforming gardens into spectacular living spaces,” comments Tony Pratt, Sales Director of The Composite Wood Company. The versatile solution offered by The Composite Wood Company is modular in construction and therefore easy to install. This means the same system can be used to create fencing, decking, balustrades or bespoke outdoor living spaces such as garden rooms or sheds. “Each component is supplied in standard sizes and then assembled as required to suit the installation, so there’s none of the complexity associated with standard timber products,” explains Tony Pratt. The wood plastic composite used by The Composite Wood Company marries the natural look of timber with a hardwearing, low-maintenance functionality. It is waterproof and stain-resistant for outdoor usage, and slip-resistant, making it ideal for decking installations. MA R 2 0 1 6 7 5
