How Much Weight Can Composite Decking Hold?

Composite decking is a great choice for residential and commercial decks, for example at a restaurant or a sports members club,  because it can hold a lot of weight (typically around 100lb per square foot). Please read our technical specification for further information. 

However, a composite deck solution is only as strong as the support system sitting underneath it. So, even if you install a deck using high-quality composite, if you don’t use the right supports and pedestals, it won’t be very strong. Take a look at our Ecoscape Timber-free support systems and easy-installation guide for safety advice on how to install composite decking correctly.
