32mm Smooth Redwood Deckboards
This is our smaller smooth finish softwood decking. Machined from ex 32mm x 100mm quality redwood timber blanks, these deckboards use a timber that has tighter growth rings and is denser than the timber typically used for fencing and carcassing.
15 year Manufacturers Warranty
After machining the redwood decking boards are pressure treated with next generation Tanalith E preservative. The deckboard machining and timber treatment is conducted in Britain at a rigidly controlled vacuum pressure timber impregnation plant. This stringent manufacturing process has been approved by Lonza Chemicals and means we can offer a 15 Year Manufacturers Warranty. See below for details.
Finished sizes and deckboard lengths
When machined the 32mm x 100mm blanks finish at approximately 27mm x 95mm. We normally keep 3.6 metre and 4.8 metre lengths in stock but the Scandinavian timber mills sometimes substitute 3.9 metre and 5.1 metre lengths instead.
Deckboards and more
These 27mm finish smooth boards are very versatile, they have rounded edges and can be used as handrail, or horizontal rails in balustrade installations –ideal to place your drinks on – or as a component in garden furniture, for example in a slatted bench or picnic table top.
Deckboard fixing and decking care
We recommend that the deck joists for these deckboards are fixed at a maximum of 400mm centres, if the boards are being fixed at an angle (rather than at the normal 90 degrees) then centres should be 350mm. Each board should be secured with 2 quality deckscrews on each joist and most importantly every cut end on these deckboards must be treated with Ensele end treatment.
When supplied the deckboards normally appear light green but then mellow to a light honey brown after being exposed to a few weeks sunlight; after 18-24 months this may change to a grey colour which is perfectly normal. Your deckboards will benefit from basic maintenance once or twice a year. A gentle wash with a hose and then brush away any debris or algae that might have established itself. Ideally the boards should then be treated with a good quality decking oil to act as both a water repellent and to slow down algae growth. At Southern Timber we recommend Osmo and Liberon decking oils.
