UltraShield is recognised worldwide for its robustness, beauty and versatile colour combinations. UltraShield is an environmentally friendly fully capped wood plastic composite. Years of engineering and countless hours of field-testing has yielded a product of unmatched performance and beauty. UltraShield combines the proven strength of high-density polyethylene plastic and wood fibers with an outer shell of polymer that completely encapsulates the board in an impermeable layer of protection from stains & fading.
We’ve engineered years of performance into your deck so that you can get years of enjoyment out of it. UltraShield Naturale is beautiful, functional, and it will stand the test of time.
UltraShield was engineered to give you ultra low maintenance. Messes such as wine, coffee or sauces can be easily wiped off the surface because liquid never gets absorbed by the shield. You don’t have to worry about splinters or staining the deck every year.
UltraShield is simply the most natural looking synthetic decking product ever. The patented shield formula, Naturale, provides luxurious rustic colour and deep wood grain patterns that bring you the warmth and beauty of wood without the hassle. The unique surface treatment will ensure your feet never want to leave your deck.
As important as the look and feel of the material is, its whats inside that counts. Fading, staining, mould, mildew – it’s all been taken out of the equation. The unique formulation of the shield ensures the colour lasts much longer than conventional composite decking. The results of many hours of testing have shown minimal changes to colour over many years of exposure.
You will never need to paint, sand or oil again. Once you install this new composite deck it’s going to remain beautiful for many years.
At NewTechWood we know each customer has their own individual style and we offer an amazing colour range to choose from. Nature has an incredibly diverse colour palette so we went to great lengths to make sure our colours really reflect the world around us. We travelled to Hawaii to study and document volcanic rock and this gave us the inspiration for our new composite decking colour available in 2018: Ebony.
