Our wood plastic composite decking and composite fencing utilises the latest technology to create beautiful composite garden products that not only look like timber, but also offer additional benefits that can only be achieved from a composite material.
Composites combine two or more materials with significantly different properties to produce a new product with unique characteristics to the original constituent parts. Our wood plastic composite materials combine both FSC® 100% certified hardwood timber and recycled plastic.
By combining wood and plastic the decking boards retain the natural look and feel of timber with the added strength and durability of plastic. Our composite decking creates an elegant solution to many of the problems associated with traditional timber products such as rot, colour fading and slippery surfaces.
As our products contain only FSC® 100% certified hardwood timber from well managed sources as well as recycled plastic, our composite decking is not only high in composite technology, it is also environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Established in 2014 by Domenic Harrison and Charles Taylor, wood plastic composites came quite naturally to the two entrepreneurs due to their families’ great histories in both plastic and timber industries.
The Harrison family has a great history in the plastics industry with Geoff Harrison being a stalwart of the plastic sector and who – along with Kevin McDonald – was a founding member of Polypipe Plc back in 1980. The Taylor family has been established in the timber industry for more 60 years with Charles being the 3rd generation timber merchant. Both Domenic and Charles’ experience in their respective fields has created the perfect partnership for developing Composite Prime’s unique formulas of wood plastic decking.
Our composite decking and fencing is naturally resistant to fungus, which is the number one cause of rot and decay in traditional timber.
Unlike traditional timber, our composite decking requires no staining, treating or painting. Due to the high-quality UV inhibitors, the product will maintain its aesthetic appeal years after installation.
Our composite decking will not warp, bend or splinter like traditional timber decking. Rot and decay are also a thing of the past thanks to the naturally fungal resistant nature of wood plastic composite.
There is the equivalent of more than 3,000 recycled plastic bottle caps per square metre of our composite decking.
Our wood flour is FSC® 100% certified timber from responsible sources.
Our composite decking is not only comfortable to walk on barefoot, it’s also safe to do so because of its naturally splinter-free properties!
Our composite decking is resistant to slippage in wet and dry conditions.
There was a method to our madness with the Composite Prime name. As well as communicating that we offer composite decking and composite fencing, we wanted to get across the quality message of our products. So the association of the words ‘composite’ & ‘prime’ was created.
A composite number is a whole number that can be divided evenly by numbers other than one or itself.
A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than one and is divisible only by itself and one.
Which also happen to describe the product perfectly:
Adjective – made up of several parts or elements.
Adjective – of the best possible quality; excellent.
The company name Composite Prime was born, a name that describes our product and ethos tremendously well.

All of our composite decking and composite fencing products contain a combination of FSC® 100% timber from well managed
sources and recycled plastic, meaning our composites are not only high in composite technology,
they are also environmentally friendly and sustainable.
