Position the starter clips against the wall and screw them into the side of the joists. Gently push the first decking board into the starter clips.
Insert a locking clip into groove of board as shown. Only use 1 locking clip per board, which would usually go on the centre joist. Screw down slightly to hold the clips in place.
Insert a standard clip into groove of board at each remaining joist. Screw down slightly to hold the board in place (use low torque). Work 6 boards at a time. Check square then screw down section. Repeat until finished.

Ekodeck’s unique construction requires no maintenance when it comes to oiling and painting. Those costly and tedious tasks become chores of the past, saving you both time and money. However, like carpet, our lighter colours – Highland Oak and Silver Ash – require more maintenance to keep clean than our darker colours.
Unlike timber decking, Ekodeck requires no special treatments to combat mould and termite damage. The plastic deters termites, and as Ekodeck absorbs less water than timber, it is less likely to suffer from the effects of mould and mildew. Should any surface mould and mildew appear, it is easily washed away.
Warping and splintering can begin with traditional timber decks after just a few years in Australian weather. Ekodeck delays this weathering process, making it less likely to splinter, cup or warp. Ekodeck is also equipped with Anti-UV technology to combat fading in sunlight.
Splinters, warped boards and popped nails are common problems associated with traditional timber decks. Ekodeck eliminates these safety hazards, welcoming bare feet. Ekodeck is also non-toxic.
Many composite decking products still look like plastic. Ekodeck has been carefully engineered, designed and finished to look and feel like natural timber.
