When only the best will do.
Consider the exceptional beauty and quality of Composite Decking.
Composite Decking in Action
From the beauty of its dramatic color tones and multiple wood grain patterns to the polish and protection of capping on all four sides, Fiberon Horizon® Decking is the board for those who won’t compromise.
Composite deck boards are capped (or covered) on all four sides with a patent-pending PermaTech® surface material. Four-side capping increases durability, enhances stain and fade resistance, and ensures a more polished appearance all around. Plus, Horizon boards feature two different wood grain patterns on the top and bottom for more design options and less on-the-job material waste.
And like all Fiberon products, there’s no sanding, staining or sealing needed, ever. Viewed from any angle, it’s the perfect union of natural beauty and advanced composite technology.
Beautiful, realistic wood looks
Exotic wood tones and grains emulate tropical hardwoods.
Easy to clean for true low maintenance
Clean with soap and water or mild household cleaners
When Safety Counts
Unlike wood, composite decking won’t splinter or crack, making your home safer for bare feet, small children and pets.
Never stain or paint your deck again.
Composite decking frees you from the maintenance of wood.
Good for the environment
Created from recycled content, our composites are toxin-free and produced using sustainable methods.

Could outdoor living possibly get any easier?
We doubt it and we back up our claims with the industry’s first 25-Year Stain, Fade and Performance Warranty.
Prior to Installation
Boards should be unpacked and laid out loose for 24 – 48 hours to allow for acclimatisation.
When carrying NexGEN boards, carry on edge to have a better weight balance and store on a flat surface. There is approximately a +1cm tolerance on the board’s length therefore most boards should be cut at the end to match with the joist spacing and to achieve a better finish.
Make sure there is adequate and unobstructed airflow under the deck to prevent excessive water absorption. Improve drainage or grade flat areas where standing water may gather.
Standard woodworking tools can be used. We advise the use of tungsten carbide saw blades. Consult local building codes.
NexGEN boards cannot be glued.
Do not fix parts such as balustrading directly onto deck boards.
Leave a gap for thermal expansion around parts inserted in the deck board such as posts, lights etc. For swimming pools, we do not recommend the use of NexGEN boards in constant contact with water. If heavy objects such as spas are to be placed on top of you deck, ensure the sub frame is designed to support the load.
Colour can differ slightly from one batch to another, due to the natural variations in the wood content. Colours are not contractual.
Dry and windy environments may create a temporary condition of static electricity, which will vary depending on climate.
To have better ventilation, boards should not be laid directly on the ground.
When installing perpendicular to the joists in residential applications, spacing is 45cm on centre. For commercial applications, spacing should be no more than 30cm on centre.
When the decking is to be laid diagonally, reduce the on-centre joist spacing by 10cm.
All decking materials, whether wood, composite or metal, undergo some degree of linear expansion due to temperature differences. To compensate the contraction and expansion effects the following installation standards must be maintained:
Side to side spacing: 5mm
Between the board side and any permanent structure such as a wall or a post: 6mm End to end spacing: 3mm
Refer to the calculation chart for temperature differentials.
Use header/divider boards between continuous runs of boards where possible to reduce butt joints.
To help control end-to-end spacing, decking should be kept at ambient temperature and shaded from direct sun prior to cutting and securing.
Never cut and install boards in direct sun assuming them to be at ambient temperature.
Wood Grain Patterns
Note that the wood grain patterns on NexGEN decking are directional. Different looks can be achieved by installing the decking in the same or alternating directions. The graining pattern repeats approximately every metre along the board length. To ensure you orientate the boards to achieve the desired effect, a directional label is noted on the side of each board showing grain direction. During the planning phase of any deck project, arrange decking before installation to achieve the desired pattern.
Installation with NexGEN hidden fasteners
NexGEN fasteners are a hidden deck fastener designed specifically for NexGEN decking boards. NexGEN fasteners allow an exceptional hold-down power thanks to the claws located on the tabs. The result is a stable, smooth and blemish free deck surface.
1. Position the first deck board and leave a 6mm gap from any permanent structure
2. Pre-drill the first deck board with a 3mm drill. Use NexGEN composite decking screws along the outside edge. The screw placement should be at 25mm from the edge of the board. Do not over-tighten the screws
3. Insert NexGEN fasteners into the groove channel of the 1st board at every support joist
4. Position the 2nd board against the fasteners. Slightly lift the outer edge of the 2nd board to ease the assembly. NexGEN fasteners allow 5-6mm board spacing.
5. Once 1st and 2nd boards are positioned, tighten the NexGEN screws down. A special bit is provided. Do not over tighten the screws. Use a plastic hammer to tighten the 2nd board to the 1st one . Repeat the same steps for next boards.
6. Adjust the last board width with a circular saw, and fix it with NexGEN composite decking screws along the outside edge
7. To obtain a fascia, you can cut a board in the length direction and place it alongside your deck
Where is it made?
What is it made of?
NexGen Decking is crafted from 60% recovered hardwood fibre and 40% UV-stabilised high density polyethylene.
What are the advantages over traditional timber decking?
Long straight lengths, quick and easy installation, never warps, never rots, splinter free, no sanding, no painting, no sealing, no staining, long lasting, scratch resistant, termite resistant, 25 Year Warranty
What maintenance is required?
Virtually none, only occasional cleaning with soap and water or a pressure clean
How do they compare to other composite decking?
Our composite decking products are the only ones on the market that solves the three problems composite decking customers complain most about: colour fade, staining, and mould/mildew. Each board has a non porous surface layer that is co-extruded into the wood fibre (golf ball cover technology). The nonporous cover is what sets our boards apart from all other composites.
Will the surface peel or wear off?
The surface will not peel off due to the fact that the surface layer is co-extruded into the wood fibre. Under normal conditions, the surface will last indefinitely. If exposed to high wear or abrasion, some wearing is possible. If any of the substrate becomes exposed, this is no cause for alarm because it contains the same UV stabilizers as the rest of the composition and is not affected.
How long will the antimicrobial product protection last?
Antimicrobial protection is built-in during the manufacturing process and will not wash off or wear away. It is engineered to provide continuous antimicrobial product protection for the useful lifetime of the product.
How does the price compare to traditional timber decking?
Our pricing is similar to a good quality hardwood
