Deck String – Easy way of installing steps
Elevated decks help to make best use of uneven and garden slopes, providing extra space and flexible addition to a living, working, leisure space. While the decking provides a focal point for entertaining it does raise the problem of accessing the lower garden levels. Tread strings represent an easy way of installing professional looking steps on a deck.
Choice of tread string sizes
We supply two sizes of decking tread strings, a three tread which is 600mm high and a five tread which is 1000mm high. They are machined from 245mm finished timbers which are approximately 45mm thick. These timber strings are pressure treated with preservative after machining.
Combine with anti-slip deckboards
The tops of the treads are machined to support two widths of our 125mm deckboards and can be purchased in any quantity required. We would recommend the use of at least one grit strip boards on each tread, these boards are normally supplied in 4.8 metre lengths. If they are being used with ex-38mm timbers they should be spaced at no more than 600mm centres.
