Timber decking can be used in a number of ways: as part of garden landscaping, to extend living areas of houses, and as an alternative to stone based features such as patios. The most common timber types used for decking are pressure treated softwood and untreated larch which is naturally durable outdoors. Oak is a hardwood alternative that gives your decking special character.
We produce two types of decking boards, grooved boards and smooth boards with a planed finish. Our grooved decking has shallow grooves which collect less debris and moisture. Our smooth decking boards are planed with rounded corners and are very comfortable to walk and sit on. Planed boards have the advantage of being easy to clean and treat and also drain quickly. Rough sawn decking boards can be a cheaper option that is ideal for outdoor areas that aren’t directly attached to the home and therefore needn’t be as smooth (e.g. picnic areas, bridge decking timber). Our standard size decking boards are 145 x 28mm and can come in various lengths ( 2.4m x 3m, 3.6m etc.).
We can supply decking joists to match the structure of your deck. The larger the decking area, the larger the joists need to be that make up the frame for your decking.
If your deck is raised off the ground, you will require support posts. Typical post sizes are 75 x 75mm and 100 x 100mm.
Decking rails, spindles and posts
Decking rails provide a safety barrier and add to the overall look of you deck. Standard sizes are 3.6m x 75 x 38mm with a chamfer for the top rail. Our square decking spindles (standard size 900 x 35 x 35mm) are used to fill the gap between the hand and base rails. Post are used around the edge of decking to secure the rails.
