Alternative decking has become the go-to for thousands of Australians. From its low maintenance features and array of stunning colours to being eco-friendly and cost effective, there is a reason why Brite Decking is the leading supplier of alternative decking.

In this article we share 6 reasons why alternative decking is a great choice compared to traditional timber decking.

1. Safety First

When it comes to decking options, safety should always be a top priority, especially for areas prone to moisture and foot traffic, such as poolside decks or spaces frequented by young families. That’s why Brite Decking has developed a revolutionary alternative decking solution that prioritises safety without compromising on quality or aesthetics. Introducing: Brite Decking’s HD PRO and Titanium composite materials.

  • They have a slip rating. These boards are engineered with an industry-leading P5/R11 slip rating. This feature alone makes it the go-to choice for eliminating the risk of accidents, providing peace of mind for homeowners and ensuring a secure environment for families with young children.
  • They don’t splinter. This means that even when walking barefoot, you can enjoy a safe and comfortable experience without worrying about painful splinters or potential hazards.
  • They utilise concealed fastening systems. These systems ensure that no nail heads protrude from the surface, minimising the risk of injuries and creating a smooth, seamless finish that enhances both the look and feel of the deck.

Brite Decking’s alternative decking solution offers homeowners a decking solution that not only enhances the aesthetics of outdoor spaces but also prioritises the safety and well-being of those who enjoy them.

2. Aesthetic Appeal

Alternative decking has aesthetic appeal

A major reason why alternative decking has emerged as the preferred choice over traditional timber lies in the diverse range of sizes and colours available, allowing for the creation of seamless, visually stunning surfaces that effortlessly blend with any architectural style, whether for commercial or residential outdoor areas.

Neutral tones like our Titanium Willow Oak, Urban Eco Beach Sand, or HD PRO Antique 2 and Smoke White cater to homeowners seeking a relaxed beach-style aesthetic, evoking a sense of tranquility that harmonises with coastal environments. Customers looking for a traditional colour scheme without the maintenance headaches of timber can opt for our highly sought-after HD PRO Spotted Gum/Merbau or the striking Titanium BAL 29 Tawny, which blend classic brownish/reddish hues found in nature.

Inspired by contemporary design trends like the Hampton style? Our range of greys across our three stunning ranges provides a compelling alternative decking option. Thanks to our stunning range there’s no need to compromise on aesthetics or endure strenuous maintenance tasks to achieve the desired colour palette. 

Alternative decking offers unparalleled versatility and aesthetic appeal compared to traditional timber options. With a diverse selection of sizes and colours available, homeowners can effortlessly craft visually captivating outdoor areas that not only complement their architectural vision but also deliver long-lasting durability and minimal maintenance requirements.

3. Low Maintenance

Alternative decking products, such as Brite composite decking, offer a hassle-free solution compared to traditional timber decking. While traditional timber requires regular staining, oiling, sealing, or painting to maintain its appearance, alternative decking like Brite eliminates the need for such laborious upkeep. With our composite decking, you can say goodbye to time-consuming maintenance tasks, saving both time and effort while enjoying a beautiful outdoor space.

4. Moisture Resistance

This ensures that your deck maintains its aesthetic appeal even in challenging environments, without the worry of unsightly water damage.
