There are a wide range of recycled profiles which can be used in a variety of applications. Used widely by many organisations in both the private and public sector. It's versatility of design allows it to be used in furniture, fencing, walkways signage and many more products. Due to the long lifespan of the materials, It is strongly recommended using good quality screws and fixings whilst allowing adequate support and expansion gaps on installation.

Key Features

  • Maintenance free - never needs painting or treating
  • Diverting Material from Landfill
  • Insect and animal resistant
  • Lasts longer than timber
  • Can be worked like timber
  • Easy to clean & maintain

General information

The decking boards are available as 30 x 150 x 3600 mm and 40 x 150 x 3100 mm profiles in black and brown.
They can be worked using standard wood working tools and in the same manner as
wood, please see “Working with Our Material” document for further information. With
all recycled products it is important to remember the need for expansion and support,
if these are taken into consideration then they can provide a long term, low
maintenance solution for a number of projects and applications.
The decking boards can be face fixed using good quality screws, or by using connecting
clips so that no screws are visible. The connecting clips allow for:

  • Easy and quick installation.
  • Automatic placement of the boards at the correct parallel distance.
  • More aesthetically pleasing installation.
  • Expansion and shrinkage of the boards due to temperature fluctuations

Expansion intervals

The lower the temperature during installation, the greater the boards may expand. The decking boards have a maximum linear
expansion of 0.109mm per metre per °C.
It is vital to calculate the maximum expansion of the boards in order to calculate the
correct distance between boards/ walls/ borders.
Please remember that when boards are connected lengthwise they are to be treated
as one long board.

Decking board installation using connecting clips

  • The decking boards should be attached to the bearers by the connecting clips. The connecting clips mean that expansion gaps are allowed for.
    (They can also be face fixed using good quality screws).
  • Each board is moulded with a groove on each length to allow the clips to glide into place.
  • The first row of boards will only require attaching to one side, 3 lips should be sawn off one side ofthe connecting clip.
  • Screw the first row of clips to the bearers and guide the board(s) over the clips.
  • Always ensure the clips are secured in a straight line on the bearers and always take into account the minimum 10mm expansion gap.
  • Once the first row of boards are laid, slide the second row of connect system clips into the
    opposite board groove and secure to the bearer.
