How do we produce them?

Timberness boards are produced using co-extrusion – therefore, unlike ordinary composite boards, we call them hybrid boards. The majority of composite boards available on the market are created by extrusion – that is, the entire board is made from the same material. Thanks to co-extrusion it is possible to differentiate ingredients in different parts of the board. Expensive dyes, high-quality wood or refiners are not needed in the core of the board, while its top layer does not need as many stiffening components. Co-extrusion permits the use of the best available ingredients without raising the price of the board, while guaranteeing the uniformity of the board.

Easy – a composite board is made half of plastic and half of wood. It also contains ingredients that increase durability, resistance and give attractive appeal. For the production of Timberness boards, we use top-class polymers – specifically polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The second dominant ingredient is high-quality wood. When choosing composite boards, it is worth checking what kind of plastics are used for their production. Some of the boards available on the market are made of plastics with inferior technical parameters – namely polypropylene (PP) or high-density polyethylene (HDPE). They are cheaper but more susceptible to scratches, wear and mechanical damage. Boards made of PP or HDPE contain a smaller amount of wood – which results in a less attractive look.

A composite board, although deceptively similar to a wooden board, really differs from it. It has greater strength than wood, it is more resistant to moisture and water, but also to moss, fungi and pests. It does not mildew, moulder or rot. In contrast to wood, it does not require complicated care – painting, sanding or impregnation – all you need to do is to wash it with water and ordinary detergent (e.g. dish-washing liquid). It is safer than a wooden board – thanks to the brushing process it has a non-slip surface and no splinters. It is also much more fire resistant than wood.

The entire Timberness system is certified by the Building Research Institute. It received a certificate of flammability type B, as well as a positive assessment of performance, i.e. the National Technical Assessment of the ITB. Our products are also approved for use on roofs – as roof terraces. You can see all the certificates granted to Timberness in the Downloads section.

Timberness boards are intended for outdoor use: terraces, balconies, patios, piers, porches, pools and ponds. Thanks to their high durability and resistance, they can be used for commercial applications – in places exposed to heavy wear, such as restaurant terraces, piers, jetties and other public utility places.

Timberness boards are ecological for several reasons. First, by using a composite, we limit the use of wood, and thus the logging. Secondly, we use recycled materials for production. Thirdly, in the production of the boards – unlike many other manufacturers – we use polyvinyl chloride (PVC) rather than polypropylenes (PP) or polyethylenes (PE) which involve high consumption of fossil fuels and so result in high emissions of pollutants into the air.

TimbernessSELECT and TimbernessPRIME boards are made of the same material, but differ in construction and design. The SELECT board is wider than most boards available on the market, providing for an original and modern terrace look. It is also slightly thinner, which facilitates its installation on balconies – it can be installed on tiles. The PRIME board due to the smaller width and greater density of the chambers has supreme durability – it will be suitable in places with heavy wear, i.e. in commercial applications. PRIME is also a double-sided board – each side has a different finish.

The TimbernessSELECT board has a width of 18 cm and a height of 2.5 cm. The TimbernessPRIME board has a width of 14.5 cm and a height of 3 cm. The standard length of each board is 4 meters – however, it is possible to cut both boards down to a shorter length as well as order longer boards, the maximum length being 6.5 meters.

Thanks to the extensive distribution network, Timberness boards can be purchased from our representatives in almost every part of Poland and in European Union.
