Becoming certified as environmentally friendly, green building products manufacturer, and using sustainably managed resources costs time and money and the onus is almost always on the manufacturer to go through the process, rather than any regulating organisation certifying all building products on the market.

Modern composite decking built around pools or patios to beautify living spaces are very popular home improvements in South Africa and these are technically regulated by South African National Standards relating to flooring. However, such constructions and the building materials used are seldom checked over by a relevant authority, which is a major cause for concern given the possibly fatal risks associated with non-compliant materials.
For years common sense dictated that solid composite boards were more durable than hollow ones. While hollow composite profiles offered certain advantages thanks to their lighter weight, the industry was plagued with issues surrounding moisture in the hollow chambers and their long-term instability. Only recently has the all new I-Series™ composite product range been able to take the good without the bad by creating an improved product and new semi-solid composite product category. The I-Series™ semi-solid composite product line offers a very lightweight board that performs arguably better than even solid boards.
