View Our Products On The National BIM Library

BIM is without doubt the latest and most innovative method of selecting products for architectural drawings and specifications and will avoid a lot of mistakes in drafting and construction, saving time and money. The objects are offered multi-platform (the most common type of drawing software is called Revit) so can be used on a number of different software packages.

What is the National BIM Library?

BIM is the Building Information Modelling software that creates intelligent product listings on drawings and specifications. The product contains all the design features like a CAD drawing did, but contains much more information on the product and almost simulates the product installed in the building, flagging up any obvious clashes (e.g. if a pedestal is the wrong height).

Quality Eco Friendly Decking Solutions

Quality Decking Solutions

iDecking UK from Wallbarn Ltd presents EasyClick, the fastest and easiest way to fit top quality composite and tropical hardwood decking.

EasyClick requires no screws, no hidden fixings, no clips and no timber joists are required. The decking boards are manufactured with grooves on the underside, which click into special mounting clips secured onto aluminium battens. Installation is simply a matter of stamping down on the boards. Every element is pre-measured and fits exactly, it is almost impossible to fix this decking incorrectly. EasyClick is up to 5 times faster than traditional methods.

EasyClick Decking System

EasyClick has the additional advantage of being low height. The whole system including the boards and the aluminium rails is only 52mm high. Treated softwood joists are not required.

EasyClick uses the eco-friendly DURO EXCELLENCE composite. The boards are manufactured from recycled rice husks and virgin PVC. Rice husks are a waste material. CO2 emissions and pollution are therefore reduced.

The material is hard-wearing, resistant to moisture and insect damage and is extremely luxurious and beautiful. DURO EXCELLENCE has superior slip resistance. It is designed to provide a long-term, luxurious finish.

EasyChange Decking System

EasyChange is the alternative “liftable” design. The boards are installed onto similar aluminium rails but the clips are mobile so installers can lift the boards at any point using the special EasyKey. This is particularly useful for areas where installers will need to access the deck beneath, such as drains or above pipework. Once closed, the clips will keep the boards securely in place and only special equipment can be used to unlock the clips, so the system is tamper-proof.

Both EasyClick and EasyChange can be used for cladding as well as decking and have been used successfully in fabricating structures such as seating and tables. They are both extremely adaptable.

EasyClick and EasyChange can be constructed using tropical hardwood as well as composite. We can mill a number of different species to accommodate the fixings and we follow the highest standards in sustainable forestry.

Making Designer’s Tasks Easier

Wallbarn has been supplying products for use in structural waterproofing and landscaping in UK for over 20 years and we always strive to make the designer’s task easier. We have developed a number of new products in 2017 to give greater flexibility and scope to designers and installers.

Our ethos has always been to make installation user friendly and future-proof. Our products are very much modular in concept; from the modular M-Tray® green roofs, through the suspended pedestal paving and decking systems, to the new ultra-fast iDecking, the specially designed decking concept which requires no screws or fixings.

Modular Green Roofing Systems

M-Tray® is a modular green roof system, designed to give a long-lasting living roof with minimum maintenance. Each tray unit is a mini green roof in its own right, each module clicks together to form a seamless, instant green roof. Installation couldn’t be easier. These lightweight modules are simply laid onto the roof or terrace deck and clicked together. The clip fastenings on the sides of the modules provide an easy-to-fit but extremely solid fixing, so that when all modules are connected a single layer is created, securely in place. The joints will become invisible as the sedum grows. Each module can be carried by hand. It really is a living carpet tile.

Applicators do not need to worry about loose substrates spilling onto and potentially damaging waterproofing membranes. Sheet membranes blowing off the roof is a thing of the past.

Adjustable Pedestals

Clients wanted a solution for paving or decking at extremely low heights. We spent over 12 months designing a fully adjustable, telescopic pedestal suitable to hold both paving slabs and timber joists. We developed the MINIPAD 10-20mm. This pedestal is fully adjustable so split-millimetre differences in height are achievable. At these very tight height levels adjustment is a problem, so we designed the pad with a series of spokes around the circumference and a handle on one side to allow “fat fingered” contractors to twist the units whilst the slab is in place.

Why has Wallbarn developed such a low height pedestal? Mainly due to the increasing levels of retrofitting in paving and decking systems. Obviously, it is far easier and cheaper to overlay, rather than take up and replace old terrace surfaces.

Also new are the BALANCE adjustable paving pedestals. Consider roof decks laid on built-up felt membranes, where a sizeable overlap across the rolls exists. This leads to ridges being present across the roof and sometimes the pedestal “pivoting” across these ridges.

The BALANCE headpiece auto-levels up to a maximum change of 5%, so it can arrest a fall up to 5% – or approx. 2 degrees. This headpiece is different from other self-levelling heads on the market. The pedestals will remain stable and the centre of gravity will pass through the centre of the pedestal, eliminating the risk of the pedestal slipping on the ridge areas. For further falls or slopes, Wallbarn’s slope correctors can be added to the baseplate, up to a maximum slope of 10%. For roofs with greater than a 10% fall, pedestals are not the recommended solution.

Wallbarn is also launching a simple but very effective product for use when paving up to walls and parapets. The metal plate for paving is a simple stainless steel plate which is placed on top of the headpiece on pedestals laid up to the wall. As Wallbarn’s standard baseplates are 200mm in diameter and the headpieces are 150mm in diameter, the end slab can overhang the headpiece slightly, risking that slab tipping if a person was to stand on the very lip. By adding the metal plate for paving, that edge slab is supported completely, creating a safer area on balcony edges.

The New & Easy Way To Install a Decking System

Building a deck is not the easiest task in the world! It still requires master deck builders to take care of that… There’s always some brave handyman who, after some research, loves the do it yourself world and we believe that nothing is impossible. Today we want to compare the classic hidden fasteners system with iDecking’s EasyClick innovative installation system.

Now let’s go through some useful detail about the two systems and try to understand what are the benefits of a fast and safe installation.

Traditional HIDDEN FASTENERS Decking System

Definitely a cool way to get the screws out of sight, but they’re gonna be still there! But make sure to have A LOT OF TIME to dedicate to this job, you need to be focused, concentrated and… What if you need to remove a board once the deck is finished? Perhaps at the centre of your deck? NIGHTMARE !!!!! All you have to do is “just and simply” start from the nearest perimeter, take out all the boards till you reach the one you desire to remove, replace it, and re-install everything! Some pirates use to pull the board out and then face fasten it… (forget about that!).

The real problem is given by screws… they won’t hold forever! And despite being a time waster thing, it force you to structural maintenance every single season (this depends on the kind of wood/material and screws you use). When the screw fails, the board lifts up, this is not just bad looking, is even dangerous especially if you have kids… just to give you a few examples:

iDecking’s EASYCLICK innovative decking System

decking easyclickEasyClick is the innovative system which allows you to install iDecking Revolution boards simply using your feet. No need to use any nails, screws, drills, spacers or “obsolete” clips. The EasyClick system helps ensure a quick and simple trouble free installation. EasyClick is essentially comprised of an understructure “rail system” which comes with pre-installed and pre-spaced patented EasyClick nylon clips. Our patented grooved decking boards are then simply pressed and locked in place. The system can be used both for Wood and for Composites such as DURO and ETHERNO (Carbonised Bamboo).

What are the highlights of EasyClick system?

  • Decking installation up to 5 times faster than traditional deck building
  • Boards require Zero screws, nails or other fasteners
  • Drastic reduction of installation errors
  • “Effortless” installation
  • Doesn’t cause water stagnation
  • Increased structural integrity and strength
  • Self aligning system

CONCLUSIONS

Time is Precious, Time is Priceless… Time is money. Make sure to consider not wasting both your time and money when in need to plan your deck or cladding area.
