Installing decking can completely transform exterior spaces. Outdoor decking creates a versatile focal point that’s ideal for a range of activities, purposes and design plans. Demand for decking (composite especially) has grown exponentially over the past 18 months and homeowners and business owners alike are discovering the benefits of decking for their properties.
The popularity of solid timber decking alternatives has also evolved in recent years and when it comes to developing exterior spaces, there are other garden decking options that offer a whole host of functional and aesthetic benefits. At STORM, we only believe in stocking the best products for our distributors and customers. Discover our fantastic garden/outdoor decking options below.
WPC decking (Wood Plastic Composite Decking) consists of a combination of natural hardwood and synthetic materials. It is most often created using a mixture of wood powder and HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) or PVC (without resin). The combination is mixed together and extruded to produce the decking plank and finished with a grooved or woodgrain style.
STORM’s range of WPC decking (TRITON) is an excellent economy-level product that offers high-end aesthetics on an affordable budget. WPC decking is suitable for private homes, parks, recreational centres, pubs, caravan and camping sites… to name a few applications. The pleasing finish allows it to blend with its surroundings and the strong construction ensures it can withstand more trying environments and weather.
When compared to standard timber decking, WPC decking requires less maintenance and is typically more durable and cost-effective (repairs will be less frequent so costs can be avoided). Installing WPC decking is also easy – a key selling point for those with busy jobs or multiple projects.
STORM’s TRITON range is available in five colours and two lengths (5m & 3m). It also comes with a 5-year guarantee and a huge range of outdoor accessories for those finishing touches!
Co-Ex WPC Decking
Co-extruded decking is very similar to standard wood composite decking but follows a co-extrusion process – a process used to obtain a product that combines two textures. By combining specific resins and polymers to the coating of the co-extruded decking (including UV inhibitors and colour concentration), an enhanced performance is achieved against staining and wear.
As a second-generation WPC decking board, co-extrusion advances a lot of the ‘technology’ utilised in composite decking production and improves other features for the benefit of the users, including sustainability, longevity and performance. This decking option will be available from STORM under the brand of Patoma and is available both as a hollow product and solid product.
Mineral-based composite decking board is intelligently designed for optimum performance and aesthetics in any exterior setting where you want to make an impression. Deckorators® Voyage decking is a beautiful mineral composite decking with textured embossing for best-in-class traction and jaw-dropping looks. As part of Deckorators® patented mineral-based composite technology line, Voyage decking provides one of the industry’s best strength-to-weight ratios.

Voyage decking will also not rot, splinter or decay like wood. It has been tested under accelerated weather conditions and is backed by a 25-year structural warranty.
The ease of installation and hard-wearing performance of Voyage sets it apart from timber decking and will still provide exterior spaces with a gorgeous decking feature for everyone to enjoy – time and time again, season after season, year after year.
