The exposed surface of LifePlus® Natural Decking is sanded during machining, removing loose splinters and leaving the natural textured form of the sawn surface. The natural face also performs better than a dressed face when exposed to the weather.
LifePlus® Classic Decking, which has a smooth dressed face, for situations where a traditional appearance is preferred and slip resistance is not a consideration.
LifePlus® Decking is manufactured from “selected hardwoods” - high quality, durability 1 (outside above ground classification to AS 5604-2003) treated hardwoods with proven durability, stability and weathering characteristics to deliver superior performance in weather exposed conditions.
Note that LifePlus® Decking is not produced from “mixed hardwoods”, which can be supplied from a variety of hardwood species including some which are of lower durability, higher shrinkage and lower stability than we would consider acceptable.
LifePlus® Decking is manufactured by a number of independent producers, to a common high standard of timber grading and manufacture to ensure that LifePlus® Decking, wherever it is purchased and whoever produces it, will be of the same high standard and deliver the same performance and longevity benefits.
The LifePlus® Decking producers are certified by an independent assessor to ensure that the required standards are maintained over time.
Treatment is with a non-chrome and non-arsenic preservative, either Koppers Arch Tanalith E or Osmose ACQ - not CCA.
