Composite Cladding by Ecoscape

Composite cladding is an eco-friendly, long lasting and low maintenance cladding which is made from recycled plastic and wood fibres. Cladding from Ecoscape can be used for either internal or exterior projects. Additionally, our composite cladding has a durable polymer outer shell that encapsulates the board, which forms an impermeable layer that protects from scratching and fading.

Panel Cladding Range

The Forma range of composite cladding utilises an advanced co-extrusion technology for maximum strength, durability and resistance to the elements. The Ecoscape panel cladding does not fade, rot or warp and looks amazing in either of the six available colours. 

Slatted Cladding Range

Ecoscape slatted cladding range looks as impressive as natural wood cladding with no need to paint, stain or oil. This stunning material is easy to install and comes with a 25 year warranty.

Composite Cladding Boards

We always suggest that you order a free sample pack or speak to our sales team about your project before placing an order. While this is always beneficial, often it can also be an added help to see examples of our decking in everyday use. Feel free to browse our composite cladding inspiration gallery to help you get a clearer picture of what you’re aiming for.

Composite Cladding FAQ

Whether you’re looking to replace your existing cladding or create a cladded façade from scratch, you’ve probably heard about the benefits of composite cladding and other materials available when it comes to building or replacing your cladding.

Both our panel and slatted cladding can be installed vertically and horizontally. Refer to our installation guide for further details

Composite decking, cladding, and fencing come in two different WPC forms, which are capped and uncapped. Uncapped composite was created first and is slightly less durable than capped composite.

The reason for this is that capped composite cladding has an extra outer layer of polythene, which provides some extra protection, allowing your composite cladding to last even longer.

Uncapped composite cladding is less resistant to sun exposure and will fade over time, it is also more prone to stain. Both our Slatted and Panel cladding boards are capped, are UV stable and come with a 25 year guarantee.

Various options - block/brick construction using either a tanalised timber, 100% solid plastic (recycled plastic) or aluminium joist (Ecoscape offer both plastic and aluminium options). Our Cladding can also be fixed straight to a steel frame building (using our special cladding clip). Discuss the advantages of using 100% plastic or metal framework - longevity, using a recycled material which would otherwise go into landfill.  Plastic we offer a 50x25mm and 100x20mm, In aluminium 50x25mm and 40x40mm. If using tanalised timber we recommend using our cladding tape.

You can, but the gap between boards will change as the temperature fluctuates.You need to be prepared that the gap will open and close as other products do. Ecoscape offers a butt joint trim to hide the gap where boards meet end to end. You will need to follow our expansion and contraction table which can be found in our cladding installation guides.

You can create a slot say every 800mm with a multi tool, if any water does get into the trim it will find its way to the slot and drain away.

One of the reasons that people love composite products so much is that they are incredibly easy to clean, and composite cladding is no exception. Both of our slatted cladding and panel cladding boards are capped which makes it much easier to clean than the first generation composite cladding boards on the market.

As with any other composite product, you can easily clean off any grime, dirt, or algae with a pressure washer without doing any damage to your composite cladding whatsoever.

Alternatively, if you don't own a pressure washer and don't want to shell out money to buy one, then you can also use some warm soapy water, a soft-bristled brush, and a little elbow grease, and you should be able to get it just as clean.

Example in our showroom - The bench is constructed from our deck boards but the back is cladded. Cladding can be used as the seat but I would recommend reducing joist centres to 250mm / a deck board is recommended for the seating area.

No, all our cladding profiles come with a 25 year UV guarantee - to 5 delta E. Our capped technology prevents fading. Timber cladding boards can be quite susceptible to fading over time if they are not oiled, cleaned, and maintained thoroughly over time, and even then, they will still fade sooner than composite cladding will.

First generation wood plastic composite cladding will fade to become a few shades lighter a few weeks after it is installed, but it should stabilise and keep its colour for a long while afterwards. Ecoscape do not offer any first generation composite cladding.

Our products don't need to be stained or sealed. Very little maintenance, just a clean periodically.

There's no adhesive out there at the moment which we can guarantee to hold the composite together, we recommend pre drilling and countersinking our colour coded screws. We have been working on a double sided exterior tape which we will be bringing out next year.

Our cladding is more expensive than entry level softwood cladding, which can be around £25+ m2, we are more comparable to Cedar. But don't forget, once our cladding boards are installed there is very little ongoing maintenance - timber cladding general requires alot of upkeep especially of you want to keep the colour.

A Cladding clip should be used every 500mm. We also recommend locking the cladding board with a locking screw on the centre cladding clip.
