About this deal

It is best to always place a decking joint holder at the intersection of decking boards and substructure. Place the second plank in the desired location and place the spacer of the correct thickness between the planks. Every outdoor wooden deck needs gaps between the decking boards to allow the wood to work and rainwater to drain away. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The spacer creates a 6 mm gap between the decking boards and the joists, which improves the ventilation of the deck and prevents excess water.

Even during terrace construction, these prevent the gaps between the joints from being of different widths. Please note that while this calculator shows the decking required, Southgate Timber advises that 10% be added to the total to cover wastage. An easy to use fixing that does not require plastic plugs, it has a high resistance to fire compared to nylon fixings. Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behaviour or unique IDs on this site.After you have straightened the first decking board, simply lay the rest of the decking planks straight on the first plank. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality decking products that last for years without losing their good looks. Wood with the FSC 100% seal is regularly subjected to independent controls and comes from forests that are preserved in the long term precisely because of their management.

This simple tool takes the guess work out of laying decking ensuring it looks great time and time again.It also allows some flexibility which will reduce the risk of screws shearing as deck boards shrink and swell throughout the seasons. Covering most standard wood and composite board sizes in the UK, you can be sure of a perfect finish every time. The disadvantage of these terrace joint holders is that the requirement per square meter is significantly higher than with freely movable models.

There is no need for additional fixing of the BASO spacers, as they are simply placed on the joists and screwed with a wood screw while screwing the decking boards. Gone are the days of wedging a screwdriver between the boards and holding them in place with your knee.We also know it will save you time and money whilst giving you a perfect finish with no more screws out of line. The protective decking spacer strip is inserted between timber decking and the substructure when face fixing the deck boards. Use our handy, in-page, calculator to find out how much pointing product you require to install your paving. Freely movable spacers are placed between the already screwed and the still to be screwed terrace boards when assembling the wooden terrace.

When straightening the board, hold both spacers 1/4 and 3/4 of the plank and press the boards together. Unfortunately we aren’t able to send parcels to these addresses at present but we are working on it. This screw is a friction fixing which minimises expansion stress in the base material, this allows fixing near to the edge, and gives greater loading performance than most nylon fixings. With dry decking, you should keep a little more spacing in between than with wet decking, this is because the wood will warp again over time. We strengthen local people and businesses that practice responsible forest use and thus oppose the displacement of the forest by agriculture.

They are cut to the desired lengths and slotted into the handrail to maintain equal gaps between the spindles. The DECKINGTOOL takes care of these in one easy to use tool, setting the gap between the boards at 7mm. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Determining the correct distance between your decking boards depends on what type of wood your decking board is. After installing (screwing) the decking boards, the distance meter prevents decking from expanding, which gives the good deck stability.
