A few installation rules for our composite decking that need to be followed are:

  1. All composite decking expands with heat and contracts when cooling due to its HDPE content, please allow the appropriate gap between lengths when laid end to end, hollow boards require a minimum of 1mm per metre of length of board gap at each end when the boards are cold, when warmed up this gap will reduce to the required mimimum 1mm overall when the boards are at their hottest. Gaps should also be left around any poles, posts and next to buildings 5-10mm is considered standard.
  2. A screw can be drilled and screwed at a 45 degree angle at the centre of boards to prevent walking (expansion and contraction will always be in the same direction this way).
  3. For domestic use our solid style boards can be used with 450mm centres max for joists, our hollow style boards can be used with 350mm centres, diagonally layed boards should reduce joist centres by 50mm.
