What is Poliwood Composite Decking made of?
Poliwood is manufactured from a proprietary formulation of 60% reclaimed wood fibres, 30% recycled HDPE plastics such as detergent bottles and milk cartons and 10% additives to assist with its UV resistance, scratch resistance, fire resistance and other elements. Each board is further protected by a Supershield 360-degree encapsulation. This durable composition combined with natural wood colours and grain yields a composite decking board that boasts both beauty and strength.

How do I clean and maintain my deck?
Poliwood Decking is designed to withstand the daily wear and tear of outdoor living. We do recommend cleaning your deck regularly to remove pollen, organic debris, dirt or stains. A broom and a garden hose is a convenient cleaning method. If you find accumulated dirt or grime, use soap and water and a soft scrub brush and simply rinse off with water. More detailed information can be found in our Care and Maintenance Guide.
How do I build a deck?
Every deck will have its own unique requirements. In order to make your project a success, please follow the official Poliwood Decking installation guide which can be found on our website.

Will heat from grills or fire pits harm Poliwood Decking?
Not usually, but dripping grease can cause stains, so it is recommended a heat resistant mat (not rubber, vinyl or latex) is placed under your grill. Improperly installed fire features and fire pits can cause damage from direct exposure to flames or excessive radiated heat. Exercise proper caution when designing, installing and using fire features.
