Composite decking will retain heat when exposed to direct or reflective sunlight. Exercise caution if walking barefoot as footwear may be required. Fire and unusual sources of heat and heat buildup can potentially damage WPC decking surfaces. Examples would include fire, reflected light from different types of glass , fire features and under-deck waterproofing installations that do not provide the 6"" (15 cm) of un-obstructed net free ventilation.
Fire features and fire pits are increasingly popular in outdoor living environments. Fire can damage many building products including WPC decking.
Improperly installed fire features and fire pits can cause damage to the surface of WPC decking via direct exposure to the flame or excessive radiated heat.
Proper caution should be taken when designing, installing and using these features to ensure damage does not result.
