Permadeck Latitudes products are the most dimensionally stable composite boards available, are environmentally friendly and compare very favourably when looking at "whole-life cost" with other fast-diminishing supplies of questionably sustainable hardwoods.
Selected by Moller Architects for the 950 square metres of decking at the Auckland Viaduct Events Centre and by Sky City Grand Hotel for their 200 square metre deck, Permadeck Latitudes solid boards are being recognised as the market leader for durability, non-slip surface and sheer good looks.
The unique mix of pure recycled wood fibre and high-grade HDPE plastic, backed by a 20-year guarantee from the American manufacturer, gives peace of mind that this product will provide a great, long-lasting, low-maintenance deck.
The manufacturer says: "What makes Latitudes composite decking special is the Strandex technology it employs. Like individual strands of a rope make the rope stronger, Strandex technology makes Latitudes decking stronger. Strandex technology offers superior protection against UV degradation and water absorption, because every 'strand' of wood fibre is encased in high-density polyethylene. Latitudes uses Strandex inside, so you can be assured that you’re getting the highest quality and strongest composite product available."
