Whilst Ipe is the most stable of hardwoods, we recommend that you leave a 3-5mm spacing in between each board. Being a natural product there will be some expansion and shrinkage depending on climate.

Please note that as hardwood specialists, we do not stock softwood for sub-frames. We recommend that your source this from a standard timber merchants.

We recommend sealing the cut ends of your boards with an end grain sealer.

Face Screwing: The traditional method. Simply screw through the face of the board into your sub-frame, plugging the hole if required. We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing.

Deckwise Hidden Fastenings: allow you to lay your hardwood decking boards without the need for unsightly face screws. Each Deckwise clip screws into your sub-frame and then slots into the side of adjoining boards. Deckwise Clips automatically provide the 4mm spacing.

We can pre-groove your decking boards for use with Deckwise or you have the option of using a biscuit jointer on site.

We recommend installing your decking boards with the hardwood decking wrench. This is a self-locking deck board straightening tool that can be used to hold bent boards straight whilst fasteners are installed.

We also offer a hire service.

Simply screw through the face of the board into your sub-frame. Always Pilot Drill before fitting screws and drill 2mm oversize holes to allow for some expansion.
We recommend 4mm gaps between the boards (for tropical hardwoods) and 6mm gaps between the oak and softwood decking boards.
We recommend 400mm centre to centre joist spacing. Each hole can be plugged. We do not recommend that Hidden Fastening systems are used with oak decking.
