leading high technology long life wood offering a perfect solution for exterior cladding, siding and façades where aesthetics, less frequent maintenance, dimensional stability, durability and insulation value are key considerations. Lifecycle by UPM ProFi, made from 95 per cent recycled materials, is a wood-plastic composite decking that has the luxurious look and feel of a real hardwood decking. UPM ProFi Deck is a coloured decking solution for terraces, garden decks, patios, marinas and walkways. Bausen 1757 delivers an instant sense of history and ‘aged charm’, evocative of old reclaimed floors found in classical French Chateaux.
