NewTechWood offers a choice of hollow (Metro) and solid (XL) decking boards in Australia to suit all situations.
The solid board, XL Range, is more suitable for commercial projects or when replacing existing decking on sub-frames with joist spacings up to 450mm. The 25mm thick XL grooved edge (US49) deck boards are finished with the US48 square edged profile.
The top of the decking boards are textured to give a more natural timber look and feel. The reverse side of the board is a smoother brushed finish.
New TechWood provide a range of finishing boards to use for fascias, picture framing, breaker boards, stairs and screening. Refer to the table below.
For a modern, clean look NewTechWood has designed a secret fix system where the clips are hidden in the gaps between the boards. The clip slides into the grooved edge of the board and is screwed into the joist.
New TechWood Australia provides the choice of two (2) different gap spacings between the boards – 5.5mm or the Mini-Gap 1mm spacing.
The TC-16 Clip system provides a uniform 5.5mm gap between boards, which is the standard for most decks in Australia.
The Mini-Gap Clip system with only a 1mm gap is perfect for commercial installations where public safety may be an issue. The smaller gap protects against high heels becoming lodged in the gap, and also prevents leaves or tree nuts from getting stuck between the boards.
