The newly completed Jordan Springs Public School is part of The NSW Government’s $6 billion investment into public school infrastructure over the next four years that will deliver more than 170 new and upgraded schools to communities across NSW.
INNOWOOD has traditionally been the chosen sustainable timber alternative for schools throughout the world for cladding, screening and lining applications and now FIBA-DEK has become the premium decking material of choice as the focus on outdoor learning spaces has emphasised the importance of natural materials in landscape designs.

Like many of the proposed school designs, Jordan Springs Public School has a large emphasis on outdoor spaces and in particular the connection between the soft & hard surfaces, outdoor spaces and the nature that surrounds them.
Creating an extensive decking area that connects the modern building design with the natural landscape, required the right material to not only provided a safe surface for students to move and congregate but to also be environmentally and sustainably sound while withstanding the day to day traffic of a public school.
FIBA-DEK is the latest decking technology that utilises a patented dual fibre layer in a coextrusion that dramatically reduced and restricts the movement that is a common isssue in most composite decking products.
A truly sustainable and environmentally friendly material, FIBA-DEK is produced by EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) accredited INNOWOOD, that includes stringent life cycle assessments that are on top of the inherent superior material performance that INNOWOOD is renowned for.
The importance of the highest wet pendulum slip rating is achieved with the hardwearing unique 3 dimensional embossed pattern that does not affect coating adhesion over time like the past sand/grit coating combination.
FIBA-DEK was the material of choice that helped bring the design and vision of the outdoor spaces of Jordan Springs Public School to reality by offering all the benefits of FIBA-DEK with the amazing resemblance to the look and feel of natural timber in a material that will remain structurally sound for many years to come.
FIBA-DEK has now become the premium decking product that is being specified in schools along with the many other INNOWOOD products.
