Heveatech, a new and innovative hardwood engineered decking board, is now exclusively available in the UK through Round Wood.
The material is an exciting addition to the market as it is has strong environmental credentials, boasts outstanding durability and, unlike its artificial counterparts, offers a stunning, natural appearance.
It is produced from the ‘Hevea Brasiliensis,’ better known as the ‘Rubber Tree’. This species has a typical rubber or latex producing lifespan of 25-30 years, after which they have historically been felled and used for firewood, or even discarded.
This timber is now cut into small layers, which are bonded together under extreme compression and finished with a solid veneer. The result is Heveatech; an engineered decking board with a uniform moisture content and 50% less potential expansion and contraction than other hardwoods.
Its stability makes it ideal for use with hidden fastening systems, such as the ArchiDeck Clips we exclusively supply.
As Heveatech decking is so durable and is particularly suited to the harsh European climate, it is offered with a 15 year warranty against contamination and decay. It also has a lifetime warranty against termite infestation.
