Architects

Designed and manufactured in Finland, Germany and USA, UPM ProFi decking products have set new standards in performance of WPC projects.

They have been awarded the Green Good Design award and used in several international award-winning WPC projects.

UPM Composite Decking offers a smart installation solution with its patented rail step. Colour matching T-Clips ensure a seamless look as well as a long lasting fixing solution. 

Whilst enabling a completely different look and feel, UPM ProFi’s Design Decking range offer lower maintenance and longer life than traditional WPC decking materials.  

UPM ProFi Composite Decking has superior stain and scratch resistance compared to traditional decking.  The Composite decking is enviromentally friendly as it is recycled and recyclable.  

This low maintenance composite material, is an ideal decking for architects or garden landscapers with a large or complex decking project

Material Innovation in WPC projects

In 2005, UPM’s research scientists in Finland developed a new material that solved two separate problems in WPC projects at the same time. The new composite material offered better colour durability and stain resistance than traditional wpc deckings. Over 60% of the raw material of the new composite material could be sourced from self-adhesive label waste, thus making it enviromentally friendly and recyclable 

 

No recycling solution previously existed for this waste.

Environmentally Friendly 

Positively helping the environment UPM ProFi Composite Decking

  • Have a low carbon foot print
  • High impact strength 
  • Qualify for LEED credits

 

Outperforming traditional WPC deckings

  • Stain resistance can only be achieved when the fibres are totally encapsulated with polymer. Many traditional WPC deckings have a wire brushed surface in which the fibers are exposed.
     
  • Other WPC deckings achieve stain resistance, but lose the natural look and feel by covering the material with a thin layer of pure plastic.
  • UPM ProFi composite deckings manage to offer both the natural look and feel of a composite and the superior stain resistance of a closed surface. The innovative decking material is perfectly suited for outdoor WPC projects where beauty and durability are required.

Outperforming traditional WPC deckings

  • Impact resistance depends on the selection of the right polymer, good profile design, and complete bonding of fibres and polymers. Many traditional WPC deckings will crack in cold temperatures or lose their strength in hotter climates. Engineered to perform, UPM ProFi WPC projects can be found in North of the Arctic Circle as well as in hot climates. 
  • The patented Rail Step is an example of UPM ProFi’s total system approach. The profile enables fast and clean looking construction of stairs or can be used for a hard wearing deck edging.
     
  • A full range of accessories are offered as part of the UPM ProFi Composite Decking range to ensure ease of installation.
     
  • One advantage of UPM composite deckings’ closed surface is that, unlike traditional WPC deckings, they may be installed on a flat surface with zero degrees inclined.
     
  • The fibre encapsulation is so complete that UPM ProFi deckings will retain their structural performance if installed under water.
     
  • As UPM ProFi’s Design Deck range is made with lignin free cellulose fibres, it enjoys better colour durability than traditional WPC deckings. As lignin is the substance in wood that turns grey when exposed to uv light, most traditional WPC deckings are not available in light and brighter colours. UPM ProFi’s Design Decking enables a fresh and clean alternative look in WPC projects.

What is Composite Decking?

Wood and cellulose fibres are encapsulated in specially selected polymers to provide lasting protection from the weather. The advanced composite technology provides superior resistance to UV, frost, stains and impacts when compared to traditional composite or wood decks.

Due to the innovative use of recycled materials, UPM ProFi has won several international awards, and its products make a major contribution to reducing traditional landfill and incineration. UPM ProFi deck boards are made from at least 50% recycled materials and backed by a comprehensive guarantee.
