UPM ProFi® Lifecycle

Composite decking giving the look and feel of luxurious hardwood, featuring natural looking streaks and veins, making each deck a unique living surface. During the manufacturing process, recycled American red and white oak fibres are heat treated, encapsulated in a hard polymer shell and then allowed to cool naturally. This patented production process produces an exceptionally stable solid board that is protected to the core.
