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 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:
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.
