WPC deck, also known as composite decking, is a special kind of decking material comprised of both plastic and wood. It has experienced a rapid rise in popularity, and demand is anticipated to increase year over year. This September, Shelter Dome launched Shelter Deck, a modular decking system for glamping structures. WPC, as one of the deck material options, has received much attention from our potential clients.
Why is the WPC deck so popular among glamping business owners? It is a great alternative to traditional decking and provides end users with a lengthy list of benefits that make it worthwhile to invest in.
Perfect for outdoor
WPC decking offers better durability than alternatives as it is contained in plastic. It has a lifespan of 10 to 25 years and is UV-resistant, which is ideal for outdoor applications.
For a glamping resort, the maintenance of the glamping facility is always important. Some wooden decks can fade in use, which may affect the overall aesthetics. Unlike traditional wooden decking, Shelter WPC Deck resists fading, scratching and mold. Meanwhile, its resistance to splitting, rotting, cracking and decay makes it at the forefront of deck materials in terms of quality and durability.
Low maintenance required
You never have to be concerned about painting, staining, or sanding when using Shelter WPC Deck. The decking can be kept up for decades with just the occasional soap and water cleaning.
An attractive glamping campsite is inseparable from good maintenance. If you have purchased geodesic dome tents from Shelter Dome before, you are well aware that keeping the dome nice and clean doesn’t require a lot of time. Likewise, Shelter WPC Deck saves time during your maintenance.
It is important to note that composite decking may show water stains following rain, although they usually disappear away once the water vaporizes.
Sustainable and also economical
Eco-friendly materials were used to create the Shelter WPC Deck. This composite material is long-lasting and has many of the same qualities as wood decking without harming the environment. Many WPC decking options use recycled materials or goods created using sustainably harvested resources.
The long lifespan of WPC decking also implies that you won’t ever need to replace materials more frequently than necessary, using fewer materials overall. Making the correct decking material selection will help your glamping business get a rapid and positive return on investment.
While there are many WPC platforms available on the market today, you may want to consider Shelter Deck, a modular product developed specifically for glamping structures. Our WPC decking supports quick installation and disassembly, and can be flexibly adjusted in height to meet a wide range of glamping resort requirements.
