Hollow vs. Solid 

When it comes to comparing hollow and solid composite decking there is a lot of negative literature written by solid board competitors. Generalisations can be made all day long but at Ecoscape UK we have independent test results which confirm the stability, durability and longevity of our hollow profile composite boards. It is important to consider the following facts:

 

                  

Engineered Strength 

Our boards have specially-engineered arched cavities resulting in a length that is not only 30% lighter than comparable solid decking, but also high strength and stiffness for high performance applications.

'Art, and nature even more, makes use of these in thousands of operations in which robustness is increased without adding weight, as is seen in the bones of birds and in many stalks that are light and very resistant to bending and breaking' Galileo Galilei on the resistance of hollow solids (1638).

Our composites achieve a greater strength-to-weight ratio, ensuring no drooping or bounce, so boards feel solid under foot.

Honeycomb Stability

Unlike some solid decking, hollow decking materials do not warp. The manufactured stabalising core mimmics that of a honeycomb, producing a stiffness not achieved by many solid boards. Honeycomb composites are used widely in many industries, from aerospace industries to packaging and logistics.

"Found Ecoscape on google when I was looking for an alternative deck to wood. I built my new deck over a long weekend and couldn't be happier. The ease of construction, build quality and final look is outstanding. Definitely worth every penny; our garden is the envy of the neighbourhood"
