UPM ProFi - James Latham

Decking for the Next Decade

Offering resistance to the ’four S’s: Slip, Stain, Scratch and Sun, UPM ProFi – which is distributed exclusively in the UK by James Latham – boasts a long list of outstanding performance properties including: minimum maintenance; superior stain resistance; extra-high impact strength and a high friction surface.  

Designed and manufactured in Finland, Germany and the United States and carrying a 10-year guarantee, UPM ProFi has become a popular choice with landscaping professionals as it is perfectly suited to high traffic areas, where it will continue to perform to optimum levels while looking fresh, smart and clean for years to come.

And with two stunning new design styles in the range for 2020, James Latham is predicting that this rise in popularity will continue to grow.

UPM ProFi Vision

A uniquely elegant decking, UPM ProFi Vision offers numerous features and benefits including; an exceptional ‘luxury’ surface texture; class leading fade stain and scratch resistance, plus an ultra-durable core of heat treated Oak fibres, fully encapsulated with polyethylene.  This allows not only ‘on the ground’ and ‘in the ground’, but even under water installation.

Made from 95% recycled materials, it is available in three stunning colours, Sandstone, Smokey Grey and Spanish Leather.

UPM ProFi Piazza

An affordable, high-performance decking, UPM ProFi Piazza prides itself on a modern hardwood look that is remarkably resistant to stains.  Again, produced from 95% recycled materials, it boasts ultra-low maintenance properties as well as excellent colour durability and fade resistance and is available in three rich colour shades, Brazilian Walnut, Streaked Ebony and Silver Ash.

Richard Mosson, James Latham’s Group Cladding and Decking Manager commented,

“This is a true premium quality product and one that ticks all the boxes for us. As well as its impressive environmental credentials, it offers choice in style, consistency in performance and clean, cutting-edge design.

“With 10 years of continued investment and R&D, the quality of the UPM ProFi deck range is exceptional.  Long-life and ultra-low maintenance have been engineered into it and due to the innovative use of recycled materials it has won several international awards, with the product making a major contribution to reducing traditional landfill and incineration, something that is really important to James Latham and to many of our customers.”
