Timber decking doesn't have the best track record when being exposed to water for prolonged periods of time. You can get swelling and rotting, not to mention it being slippery underfoot. So when a popular pontoon builder in the Whitianga Waterways area was in search of an alternative, he discovered BiForm and hasn't looked back.
BiForm Solid Composite Decking really does tick all of the boxes when considering this kind of application. Made up of 60% recycled timber and 30% recycled plastic, you get the best of both worlds. The 4850mm lengths are straight and true so you don't have to deal with sorting through various bowed lengths of timber. The plastic component of the board ensures that the board won't absorb or swell with moisture meaning no warping, twisting, rotting or decay.
With an R11 slip resistance rating, no splinters and no toxic chemicals used, BiForm Composite is safe underfoot and ideal for families. The low maintenance nature of the board means there is no need to oil, stain or paint it. The only ongoing maintenance that is required is a bit of cleaning if it gets dirty.
When you add in the fact that BiForm Solid Composite Decking is the only BRANZ appraised decking on the market and has a 25-year warranty, it really is a no brainer, regardless of whether it is a pontoon deck, residential deck or a commercial deck.
