Composite decking was introduced to the decking industry in the late 1990s. This paved the way for fully synthetic decking. Composite decking and plastic wood decking have improved over the years.
This blog post will discuss the differences in composite decking and the most recent innovation in the industry: structural poly decking. You can also hire the #1 WPC (wood plastic composite) decking services in Singapore.

What is the difference between composite decking and plastic decking?
Composite decking is made from both organic and synthetic materials. It often contains recycled wood and plastic content such as sawdust or post-consumer materials. Plastic decking is completely synthetic, unlike composite decking.
Plastic decking can be made from one of three types: virgin or recycled polypropylene (PP), PE, or PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
What is structural plastic decking?
Composite decking and plastic decking are usually weaker than composite decking. These materials can be used only for aesthetic purposes, such as the deck's surface or railing caps. Composite decking and plastic decking need a support structure, such as a traditional wood deck understructure.
WearDeck has developed plastic decking rates that are suitable for structural applications. Our deck boards are twice as strong as traditional plastic or composite decking. The 2×8" or 2×10" profile makes a great understructure and allows you to create a fully synthetic deck, dock, or other structure.
Benefits of Structural Plastic Decking:
1. Structural plastic deck boards are great for decking.
2. To construct your synthetic framework, you can use structural plastic decking.
3. Structural plastic decking can span 24 inches on the center (o.c.). Comparable to the industry standard 16" on center (o.c.)
Structural plastic decking is a versatile alternative to traditional composite and plastic decking.
