Composite Decking Boards Made for Australia

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 wood decking is manufactured by Fiberon in the United States and sold in 30 countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Not only does our product 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.

Working with Fiberon exclusively means we’re positioned as one of Australia’s most trusted composite decking suppliers.

We’re not the cheapest, but as the saying goes, “pay cheap, pay twice!”

Why Composite Deck Boards from NexGEN?

Composite timber decking consists of wood fibres and plastic. NexGEN’s Fiberon boards use wood fibres from cabinets, salvaged lumber, door frames, 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 Composite Decking 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 timber decking has a natural look thanks to a unique embossing process that uses wheels to imprint realistic wood grain 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, too.

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
  • Eco-friendly
  • Won’t rot, fade or scratch
  • Resistant to termites
  • Anti-slip and water-resistant, so it’s ideal for use around your pool

You’ll be hard-pressed to find the following features in timber decking:

Common product features across the NexGEN range

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.

Frequently Asked Questions Directly from our Customers

What are the products made of?

What maintenance is required?

Virtually none, only occasional cleaning with soap and water or a pressure clean.

How does NexGEN compare to other brands of composite decking?

NexGEN Decking products are one of the only brands on the market that solves the three problems composite decking customers complain about: colour fade, staining, and mould/mildew. Each board has a non-porous surface layer co-extruded into the wood fibre (golf ball cover technology). The non-porous cover is what sets our boards apart from all other composites.

Will the surface peel or wear off?

The surface will not peel off or delaminate because the surface layer is coextruded into the composite core. Under normal conditions, the surface will last indefinitely. If exposed to extremely high abrasion, some wearing is possible. If any substrate becomes exposed, this is no cause for alarm because it contains the same UV stabilisers as the rest of the composition and is unaffected.

How long will the antimicrobial protection last?

Antimicrobial protection is built-in during manufacturing and will not wash off or wear away. It is engineered to provide continuous antimicrobial product protection for the product’s useful lifetime.

How does the price compare to traditional timber?

Our pricing is comparable to good quality hardwood, but of course, you will save money each year due to the maintenance requirements of timber.

What sort of warranty is available?

Up to a 50-year Stain, Fade Warranty and a Lifetime performance warranty.

How are the boards fixed?
