Life outdoors should be special: whether relaxing or working, celebrating or just living. A deck is more than just a platform: it is the link between your indoor and your outdoor life.
UPM ProFi Deck - The European composite decking
The outdoor living room
Easy to clean, slip resistant
Unlike wood and traditional composite deckings, wine, oil and other liquid spills are not readily absorbed and can be easily cleaned. Thanks to the high-friction surface UPM ProFi Deck is slip resistant even when wet.
Colours that withstand time
UPM ProFi Deck sets new standards in colour durability. Unlike wood and other composites, it is virtually free of lignin, the natural molecule which causes wood and other natural fibres to turn grey when exposed to sunlight.
Strong surface, soft to the touch
Impact resistance in both hot and cold climates is exceptionally strong, and the deck surface has better scratch resistance than many other composite decks. Despite this, the UPM ProFi Deck surface has a natural, almost soft feel to it.
Can be built flat
Whereas other composite decks need to be built on an incline to avoid water stains, UPM ProFi Deck can be built flat (zero degrees incline), due to its closed surface.
Colours inspired by Finnish nature
UPM ProFi Deck’s range of colours has been inspired by Finnish nature: a land of lakes, forest and granite, of the midnight sun and snow filled winters. The clean Nordic look allows you to take a fresh and modern approach to outdoor design.

All UPM ProFi products are made with a high content (55%– 95%) of recycled materials, thereby reducing landfill and incineration.
UPM ProFi Deck 150 gives a new life to paper and plastic offcuts generated in the self-adhesive label industry. The decking product is PEFC™ certified. The recycled material content is around 55% in UPM ProFi Deck 150.
Each 1m² of UPM ProFi Deck 150 contains at least 10kg of recycled materials, and for the lifetime of the deck, binds over 18kg of CO2 that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. The carbon footprint of the decking product is half that of concrete paving stones or ceramic tiles.
UPM ProFi Deck is designed to be low maintenance: no sanding, oiling or varnishing is needed. All exterior building materials require maintenance and cleaning to some extent. Periodic cleaning will keep your composite decking looking beautiful for years to come.
- Ensuring that leaves and other debris are swept from the deck will minimise the need for deck washing.
- Warm water and gentle brushing is often enough to clean away dust and debris. Normal household detergents can also be added to the water without damaging the decking.
- A pressure washer is recommended for a more thorough cleaning. A narrow jet spray is most effective.
- Due to UPM ProFi deckings' closed surface technology, oil and grease spills can normally be cleaned without staining.
- Bleach and abrasive cleaning materials must not be used with UPM ProFi decking products.
UPM ProFi composite decking boards will not suffer from the typical "wood greying" effect. When properly maintained, they will also avoid the stain marks and mould growth.
UPM ProFi Deck 150 will lighten gradually over time: cleaning with a pressure washer and brush will help to maintain the colour. In higher altitude locations and southern European countries, the stronger UV radiation may accelerate the natural weathering process. UPM ProFi Deck 150 UV+ is recommended for such areas.
