A new kind of decking which is said to be better for the environment has been “very well received” after 1,000sqft of it was installed at Weymouth Bay Holiday Park.

Vinyl Solutions, which provides decking and fencing for the UK holiday park industry, is the exclusive distributor to the sector for Composite Prime wood-plastic decking.

The company says the product is saving the equivalent of 10million plastic bottles every six months.

The Weymouth installation, around the park’s outdoor pools, was its largest in a holiday park so far.

Vinyl Solutions manging director Ben Hart said: “We have already had some great feedback from customers about the quality and

versatility of the new composite decking board and we’re looking to install it for many more customers in the coming months.”
