Esthec Terrace, just another composite terrace decking product? The landscape gardeners and architects who participated in the inspiration event organised by OutdoorNL and Esthec know better now. During the event on 5 November last, they had the chance to acquaint themselves with the functional properties, luxury appearance and many design options of Esthec Terrace. It turned out to be an afternoon that did exactly what it was meant to do: inspire.
The inspiration event at Esthec in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht was organised to allow landscape gardeners and architects to see with their own eyes that Esthec Terrace cannot be compared to wood or other composite products. Esthec Terrace is high quality, easy to maintain and does not warp like PVC or wood. In addition, the terrace product does not splinter and is comfortable to walk on with bare feet. Also important: it remains slip resistant in wet conditions. Esthec Terrace offers unprecedented freedom in colour and texture and is highly sustainable. The product is recyclable and made from natural materials.
More design possibilities
Because of these unique properties, Esthec Terrace offers several technical and aesthetic advantages for both professions. The material provides architects with a high level of design freedom. As Esthec Terrace is available in 7 colours, they are not limited to a traditional colour. The fact that the terrace system is easy to combine with other garden materials opens up even more design possibilities. The afternoon provided gardeners with an opportunity to see that Esthec Terrace is easy to install thanks to a lightweight, patented click system, which Esthec developed in-house and is unique in the market.
Wear and slip resistant
One of the participants of the inspiration event was Marnix Tavenier, owner of mxt landschappen, a company specialising in garden, landscape and public space design. Attending the afternoon event convinced him of the qualities of Esthec Terrace and he is looking forward to using the product in his garden designs. “The subtle colour variation in each plank is very nice. It gives a terrace a lively appearance. The click system is another important advantage, because it really saves time. In the course of the afternoon, we also visited a home with a large decking area made from Esthec Terrace. It had been installed years ago, but the planks still looked like new, not at all weathered like you often see with other products. What also struck me was that the deck provided excellent grip, even though it was a rainy afternoon. Wood can quickly become too slippery in weather like that. You can even use Esthec Terrace in shaded areas without any problems.”
The inspiration event was jointly organised by OutdoorNL and Esthec. Both companies entered into an exclusive collaboration earlier this year. OutdoorNL is agent for Esthec Terrace in the Netherlands and Belgium and supplies high-quality garden materials. The company only delivers products that meet exacting quality standards. Due to its luxury appearance and high-quality material, Esthec Terrace fits in perfectly with the company’s vision. The sophisticated terrace system is not just suitable for gardens, but also for terraces at hotels, resorts and beach clubs. In addition, Esthec Terrace is used for balconies, roof terraces, jetties and as decking material around swimming pools and in outdoor spa areas. Esthec Terrace is one of the products of Esthec, which has more than 50 years of experience in developing composite materials. Esthec is also active in the market of luxury yacht building.
In view of the success of the afternoon, more of these interactive meetings will be organised.
