Xtreme Capped Composite Decking
Composite decking combines a clean, natural wood look with impressive longevity. The best composite boards require almost no maintenance and are built for the harsh Australian climate. NexGEN stands out by offering the first 50-year stain and fade warranty in the industry and combining it with a lifetime performance guarantee on select composite decking products.
These guarantees are unmatched in Australia. We can provide them because our composite decking is manufactured by Fiberon in the United States and sold in 30 countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Not only does this decking beat timber in terms of appearance, longevity, and performance, but it also eclipses the warranties and maintenance needs of many other composite decking boards on the market.
Why Composite Decking from NexGEN?
Composite timber decking consists of wood fibres and plastic. NexGEN’s Fiberon boards use wood fibres from cabinets, salvaged lumber, doorframes, window trim, and other recycled materials. The plastic materials get harvested from milk jugs, plastic bags, and detergent bottles. Not only are these reused materials environmentally friendly, but the use of carefully selected materials also ensures structural integrity.
Recycled Plastic and Other Materials
The plastic polymers and wood get blended and compressed while heated to create a dense and extremely strong core that won’t warp or bend even after years of use.
Manufacturing Process Explained
The boards are capped, which increases longevity by covering the wood and plastic core. Fiberon relies on coextrusion to bond this outside cover with the interior materials, creating single, solid pieces immune to water damage, mould, and other problems common in timber decking and low-quality composite boards.
This process gets completed without the use of chemicals, so you can be confident the deck will not be toxic. Moreover, capped composite boards are resistant to mould and mildew, so you will not have to worry about these potentially dangerous moisture-loving substances spreading on your decking.
Natural Appearance and Colour Options
Our composite decking has a natural look thanks to a unique embossing process that uses wheels to imprint realistic woodgrain patterns on the surface of the boards.
You can select single-tone or multi-hued products with streaking and shading like natural timber. We can match the look and details of popular Australian hardwoods, giving you the look and feel of timber without the sanding, staining, and repairs that traditional wood decking needs. Popular options include Spotted Gum, White Oak, Jarrah, and Blackbutt. If you are looking for a clean, modern look, we offer options like Graphite.
The Cost and Value of Composite Decking
Composite decking requires a higher initial investment than timber. However, the overall cost of ownership is much lower.
A NexGEN composite deck is also:
- Easy to install
- Won’t rot, fade or scratch
- Resistant to termites
- Anti-slip and water-resistant, so it’s ideal for use around your pool
Our composite timber decking doesn’t require sanding, painting, oiling, staining or sealing, either – this makes it ultra-low maintenance.

Composite decking maintenance typically includes simple tasks like sweeping and washing with soapy water.
A Better Return on Investment
We can offer a five-decade warranty against fading. UV light can cause wood decks to fade. Uncapped and poor-quality composite products may also suffer from this problem. Our Fiberon boards maintain their original colour and appearance for at least 50 years without needing refinishing.
Longevity can also affect the return on investment. With annual maintenance and timely repairs, timber decking can last for two or three decades. A NexGEN composite deck is extremely durable, lasting for over 50 years. Not only are maintenance costs limited, but the deck will also last much longer than a natural wood one, allowing you to get even more value out of your initial investment.
At NexGEN, we offer different products to suit your budget, outdoor living space, and design plans.
