Not all decking is the same, we buy our
deck boards that have been machined from timber sourced from
northern latitudes. Because the trees in these northern
regions grow slowly the wood fibres are closer together.
After manufacturing this close packed structure gives the
decking its strength. It also means that the timber will
expand less as it absorbs rainwater, less movement means
less strain against the fixings and reduces the chances of
boards twisting, warping or splitting.
stock two main deck boards, 34 x 120 finished size and 28 x
120 finished size. Both deck boards are reversible. The 34mm
thick boards come deep grooved with a plane finish on the
reverse. Because the flat face drains faster than grooved it
is less likely to collect debris and so is easier to clean
and treat. Smooth boards are ideally suited for fixing with
decking clips to give an attractive screw free surface.
Smooth boards are also more comfortable to sit and walk on.
The 28mm deck boards come deep grooved with a reeded finish
on the reverse.
