Composite fencing is an eco-friendly alternative to wooden fencing which is made from reclaimed wood fibres and plastic composites. Composite fencing from Ecoscape comes in five different colours and does not have the associated problems that natural wood fencing does, such as; cracking, warping or expensive maintenance requirements. The characteristics of composite fencing compared to lumber allow Ecoscape to offer a 20 year warranty on all fencing panels.
Our patented design of composite fencing can either be retro-fit between existing concrete fence posts, or it can be utilised in the fully composite system. This means that upgrading your outdoor space could not be easier. The composite fencing range is available in five stunning colours and is guaranteed to add a stylish, durable and affordable feature to any home.
Complete your fence with a beautiful matching, preassembled gate, with heights available in 4, 5 or 6 foot. Our gates are extremely durable, low maintenance and available in multiple design options.

Ecoscape offer an innovative WPC profile which is a long-lasting, low maintenance alternative to timber. This new material can either be retro-fit between existing concrete fence posts, or it can be utilised in the fully composite system, meaning upgrading your outdoor space could not be easier.
The fence board is dual-sided showing a 63mm batten on one side and a 38mm batten on the other, with a 12mm shadow line. The fence boards can be stacked on top of one another in various ways to achieve a design desired by the client. Our goal was to create the best composite fencing that was not only durable, but also beautiful and easy to install.
The Fence boards are 157 x 45 x 1830mm – Once installed the face of the fence board is 150mm, making it easy to create UK standard height panels. For example 12 x fence boards = 1800mm (12 x 150mm) or 6ft fence / 10 fence boards = 1500mm or 5ft.
The fence boards are 1830mm in length, giving the customer an option to use in between existing concrete posts. The profile is 45mm thick so no need for wedges/packer. A perfect fit!
The system also includes a colour coded aluminium bottom rail and a composite top rail and post cap to match. The composite fencing range is available in various stunning colours and is guaranteed to add a stylish, durable and affordable feature to any home

You might have heard about composite fencing if you have been considering upgrading your outdated fence or just building a new one. Composite fencing is one of the many materials from which you can choose for the installation of your fence.
Wood Plastic Composite is a type of fencing that is manufactured from reclaimed wood fibres, recycled HDPE plastic, colourants, and bonding agents. This blend was designed to create a material that could withstand the elements better than typical wood fencing while also lasting longer.
Because it is constructed of recycled plastic and reclaimed wood fibres, composite fencing is also sustainable. As a result, wood plastic composite is not only more durable than wood fencing, but also more environmentally friendly.
Many people will be unable to recognise the difference between a composite fence and wood fencing at first glance; some composite fencing panels are identical in colour to stained wooden fencing.
When you get into the finer details, the variations between the two materials are rather apparent.
Wood fencing requires regular treatment as it can soon start to splinter, rot, warp, or fade in colour as it approaches the end of its lifecycle as it is more susceptible to the elements than fences made from wood plastic composite. Depending on the quality of the wood, it can endure anywhere from 5 to 12 years on average.
Composite fencing looks much like wooden fencing but has many of the durability features of plastic, which means it will not need to be repainted or sealed and will not splinter or warp with time. This is why, based on how well it is maintained, composite fencing can last for 25 to 30 years or more.
Your fence's material will influence how hot it gets, but the stain you choose will be the deciding factor.
When choosing the colour of your fence panels, remember that darker colours get significantly hotter than lighter ones.
If the composite fence is high-quality, such as ours at Ecoscape, it shouldn't get much hotter than wood. However, inferior composite fences may get much hotter than some of the timber choices available.
A composite fence panel does not need to be maintained regularly, so it can be kept clean easily.
If you detect any mould, filth, or algae buildup on your fence panels, you can quickly remove it with a power washer without causing any harm to your fence.
A scrubbing brush with soft bristles and some elbow grease will do the trick if you don't have access to a power washer.
Considering that composite fences are made of wood-plastic composite materials, they will undoubtedly expand and contract in response to temperature changes.
During construction, you may need to allow more space based on how hot your location gets at its warmest.
In the first few months following installation, high-quality composite fences will fade and become a few shades lighter.
This is not a cause for concern, as the colour will quickly stabilise and will not fade significantly more over the course of its existence. However, if you have a lower-quality composite fence, it may continue to fade with time.
Installing composite fencing can be quite straightforward if you plan your layout properly and have all the tools you need. Please see our Fencing Installation Guide for more information on the installation process.
In the event that you are not knowledgeable about DIY, you might be better off hiring a professional.
When a composite fencing manufacturer does not incorporate flame-retardant chemicals into their composite products, they can be very flammable.
Make sure you check this before making a purchase.
Generally, composite fencing boards cost more than wood fencing boards since they require a lot more effort to manufacture.
Since they're made from wood plastic composite, they also last much longer than traditional timber fence boards.
Despite costing more initially, composite fencing boards will end up saving you some money in the long run because they require very little maintenance and are far less likely to need to be replaced any time within the next 25 to 30 years.
