    Decking

    Ipe iDecking

    Ipe

    Lapacho or Brazilian Walnut – a tropical hardwood originating from South America. Widely regarded as one of the best species of timber for decking.

    Boards available in lengths of 1200mm and 1800mm and either 90mm wide or 140mm wide giving a great deal of flexibility.

    It has a greenish brown appearance and because of its tight grain is popular for its high resistance to mildew, termites and rotting. It is very low maintenance and is used extensively in marine and exterior construction due to its resistance to water. It dries very well and becomes extremely hard, which means it has to be pre-drilled and cut with a mechanical saw. Ipe has a fire rating of Euroclass B and will last up to 25 years. It is nicknamed “ironwood”.

    Cumaru

    Cumaru (Brazil) is another hardwearing timber.

    It is similar to ipe but has a rich chestnut colour. It has very good strength and rot-resistant properties. Ideal for clients who favour a lighter-coloured wood finish.

    Timber Decking Tiles

    Timber decking tiles are a great solution, especially for low-height thresholds and are quick & easy to install.

    • Achieve thresholds as low as 37mm
    • Long-lasting, attractive decking suitable for the British climate
    • Durable hardwood – lasts over 15 years
    • No specialist carpentry required
    • Pre-formed tiles – easy to cut for detailing
    • No joists required – avoid damage to your membrane

    Ideal for ultra-low thresholds

    • Our tiles are just 30mm in height which means combined with our 7mm fixed height pedestal you can deck up to a threshold as low as 37mm
    • Traditional decking methods using timber joists, even if suspended on a super-low support pad, will only allow you to deck up to a threshold of 130mm or higher

    Just like laying slabs

    • Uniform size and space between decking
    • Unsightly items such as drainage outlets, cables and pipes are hidden beneath the tiles
    • Tile weight holds them in place
    • No need to fix anything to the deck
    • Futureproofed: take up a tile to inspect your deck with minimal disruption
    The connection types below are compatible with this material:
    Aluminium Joists

    Aluminium Joists

    Our aluminium joists mimics the build of traditional timber substructure but with many key advantages.

    • Can achieve ultra low height thresholds. As little as 55mm total buildup depending on board choice.
    • Will not rot, warp or bend like timber joists.
    • 100% recyclable Material
    • Aluminium will not expand and contract like timber joists
    • Lightweight and easy to work with Material.
    • We have a special headpiece on our pedestals to accommodate the aluminium joists
    • Depending on board choice, we have a number of hidden fixings available. i-Fly, 4 Hook, Remo
    Composite Joists

    Composite Joists

    Our composite joists are sturdy and ideal for use with almost any board on the market.

    • Will not rot, warp or bend like timber joists.
    • Dimensions 3600mm x 38mm x 88mm
    • 3.7kg/m (linear)
    • Ideal for decking joists/sub-frame
    • Compatible with our pedestals to lift to required height
    • Depending on board choice, we have a number of hidden fixings available – i-Fly, 4 Hook, Remo
    iDecking EasyChange

    iDecking EasyChange

    The Easychange i-Decking system uses a hidden fixing that allows for the boards to be unlocked using a key. This is ideal for when you need access to the sub floor for maintenance or repairs.

    • Sustainable, non-rotting decking system
    • Integrated substructure and deck board
    • Clean lines, uninterrupted surface
    • Composite, bamboo and tropical hardwood options available
    • Bare foot friendly
    • Ideal for low thresholds (whole system from 83mm)
    • Faster, easier installation
    • Ideal for domestic or commercial use
    iDecking EasyClick

    iDecking EasyClick

    The Easyclick i-Decking system uses a hidden fixing that allows for the boards to be clicked into place. This makes for a dramatically easy and faster installation.

    • Double aluminium rail substructure system
    • Profiled rail clicks into headpiece of adjustable height pedestals without need for mechanical fixings
    • Aluminium rail with integrated clips to secure and opposition boards
    • Boards extruded with special profiles to fit into clips
    • Self-aligning system drastically reduces errors
    • Faster installation
    • No top fixings mean no surface holes, splits or lifting
