What is eco wood decking? Eco wood is simply sustainable natural and Eco friendly timber products that are used for outdoor decking purposes.
Recently, eco wood has been seen on a rising demand in the local Singapore market. Home owners are no longer just want a fixed decking on their balcony or patio, they are looking for more than that. One main reason why Eco wood is popular among home owners today is safety, especially among families with young children or elderly.
Some benefits of Eco wood decking are:
1. Naturally Green
Eco wood product is still a natural wood species. And natural wood has low and zero VOC emission and wood does not accumulate dust mites; hence it makes the air quality in the surrounding atmosphere at home cleaner and fresher.
2. Sustainably Responsible
Eco wood products are usually sourced from audited sustainable forests in the world. What it means to the home owner is that, by installing Eco wood decking at home, not only he or she is able to appreciate the beauty of Eco wood, the home owner is also able to contribute their part to global sustainability. Accoya® timber is one of the first natural Eco timber that is FSC certified.
3. Highly Durable
Eco wood are usually modified wood that are highly durable and resistant to all weather conditions. Home owners can easily obtained test reports or certifications from eco wood vendors to prove the outstanding durability of the wood. Accoya® timber has obtained Class 1 durability, the highest international standards for all natural wood species. Even for popular decking wood species such as chengal or balau has only class 2 durability and below. This proves that eco wood decking can last longer than most natural wood materials. What it means to the home owner like you and me, is that, Eco wood decking can actually makes your life easier as it requires very little maintenance in the long run.
4. Softly Insulating
One advantage of using Eco wood products is because they are naturally insulating. That means they do not emits heat like most wood plastic composites (wpc) decking when the decking is exposed outside on a hot sunny day. Hence, it is mostly preferred especially for swimming pool decking. Some building professionals also use Eco wood for other purposes like shading and cladding, probably for this purposes. For the home owners, the soft insulating properties of Eco wood can make the decking comfortable to the feet, keeping them warm during cold rainy days and at the same time, making the environment cooling during hot weather.
Especially in new homes projects today, where most of them have an unique living space for balcony or patio decking, having a piece of Eco wood at your home, can improve your home design and living lifestyle, bringing you and your family closer to a very special and peaceful thing we called, nature.
