Envirobuild Hyperion Explorer Composite Decking Receives 5 Star Review

Envirobuild is proud to announce that it has received a 5-star review for its Hyperion Explorer Composite Decking from product reviewers Slinky Studio.

Slinky Studio is an affectionately friendly independent online lifestyle hub that curates the discovery of cool, interesting & unique product ideas. To this end, they decided to go for the Silver Birch decking in order to realise an eye-catching pathway leading up to the company's garden room studio.

After a quick and simple installation process, the founder and editor-in-chief of Slinky Studio, Jacob Sheppard, was full of praise for the final result:

"We wanted a good woodgrain look. The Explorer Silver Birch won us over, with an embossed woodgrain effect and the fact that it can be supplied in 4 metre lengths. This meant that we could produce a one metre wide pathway without any waste whatsoever. We also needed edge boards for two steps to raise our path upwards. This comes in 2.5 metre lengths, so for our use it was ideal. Envirobuild can supply all the fixings and screws according to the lengths of material ordered. Our order arrived with sufficient fixings and we were immediately impressed with the Silver Birch grain look and finish"

Dr Aidan Bell, spokesperson for Envirobuild, was very happy to receive such an impressive rating from Slinky Studio and said:

"It is an absolute honour to get a five-star rating from Slinky Studio. They review some of the highest quality products out on the market, and haven't given a perfect score in almost half a year. Therefore, we are grateful to have received a 5-star review from them, and we hope this goes to show the high standard of our Hyperion Explorer Composite Decking"

The Hyperion Explorer Composite Decking was chosen by Slinky Studio for its realistic wood look and wood-grain texture. However, the decking utilises the latest technologies and material innovations to go far beyond being pleasing to the eye. Manufactured almost entirely from recycled materials (~90%), Hyperion Explorer Composite Decking has a 64% reduced global warming potential in comparison to traditional timber decking. With a low-maintenance anti-slip surface, this decking solution is protected from stains and scratches, saving money and time in the long-run compared to wood products. It also benefits from a 10-year commercial limited warranty (15-year residential) for added piece of mind.

EnviroBuild Backgrounder


Quality sustainable building materials without compromise


EnviroBuild is the UK's leading builders' merchant for sustainable building materials. They apply the latest technological innovations to provide highly engineered and lasting environmentally friendly solutions over traditional building materials. With over 60 years of experience in the construction industry, EnviroBuild are leaders in their field, and providing a quality experience for customers is at the core of their values. Their highly trained expert team are on-hand to help customers at every stage of their project, from take-off to completion.

Most recently, EnviroBuild launched new composite decking boards to join the Pioneer and Frontier lines in the highly successful Hyperion range. Hyperion Explorer has on one side a luxury, authentic textured wood grain effect and on the other a traditional grooved finish, giving homeowners the choice for their garden project. The game-changing Hyperion decking boards, in addition to the cladding and fencing ranges of the same name, are now produced using renewable wind energy as well. These latest changes to the production method mean that Hyperion composite decking boards will now produce a whopping 59.67% less carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) across its lifetime than maintained timber deck boards.


Within the high-rise construction industry, EnviroBuild is not standing still either. The new 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking system is their newest revolutionising non-combustible system on the market complying with the newest fire legislations. The decking boards can be installed alongside built-in drainage for effortless upkeep. Its modern take on decking means a flush insert can provide a smooth and continuous look or be removed to create a more traditional look of gapped individual boards. This ensures 150 Aqua-Channel caters to all preferences and can be used to create versatile designs.


Given the innovative nature of these materials and others EnviroBuild supplies, it is no surprise that the products are distributed across thousands of homes in the UK and are increasingly becoming the first choice for contractors, architects, landscapers, and construction firms. In 2020 alone, EnviroBuild brought on six new commercial projects during lockdown including Taylor Wimpey's new homes development at Innsworth and CALA homes construction in Cheltenham. EnviroBuild also featured in the Guardian and on ITV. Their garden furniture collection - Galleon - was also recommended by the Independent and in 2020 saw a massive 250% increase on 2019 sales.


The business turned over £13 million in its last financial year and in quarter two of 2020 EnviroBuild reported a 45% increase in revenue on 2019's figures and that increased even further in quarter three with a 51% rise in revenue via the retail sales division.


Above all, EnviroBuild's mission remains to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry by providing high quality products that are consistently the better environmental choice over current traditional products on the market. For every product EnviroBuild sells, a pragmatic approach is taken to manufacture a commercially viable product with significant environmental benefits; whether using high levels of recycled material, renewable energy in production or intelligent design to reduce input material in finished goods without compromising a long operational life.


These careful assessments naturally resulted in several awards highlighting the company's sustainable efforts. In 2018, EnviroBuild had been awarded the Federation of Small Business London Ethical and Green Business of the Year awards,  and was presented with the Golden Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice within the "Building & Construction, Innovation" category at the International Green Apple Environment Awards. Most recently, they won the West London Business Award in the "Green Circular Economy Business of the Year" category at the start of 2021.


EnviroBuild also dedicates 10% of profits to sustainable causes, which is unmatched in the industry. From the beginning they have been supporting Rainforest Trust in their mission to protect endangered rainforests and species. They recently celebrated their 5th year of donations to the organisation and with those contributions protected nearly 250,000 acres equating to over 62million trees across Africa, South America, Central America and Asia.

EnviroBuild are true industry leaders in progressing the sustainability and environmental impact within the construction industry.
