To achieve a safe and long lasting EKODECK+ installation, it is important to read the Installation Guide provided in full.
EKODECK+ boards are made for installation with the Quickfix Hidden Fastening System; providing you with a surface free of fasteners and a faster, easier installation.
You must wear appropriate safety protection such as dust masks and safety glasses when cutting.
Ekodeck+ planks should always be carried on their side edges for better support. Always exercise precaution and care when lifting Ekodeck planks and do not attempt to lift or carry more Ekodeck+ planks than can be safely handled in accordance with relevant OH&S requirements.

Installation Using Quickfix Clips
A general clean is essential immediately after installation to remove tannins and surface debris from installation. To perform a general clean, scrub the deck in the direction of the grain with hot water mixed with dishwashing liquid or sugar soap using a medium bristle brush. Wash down thoroughly with a high-pressure washer or garden hose with a fan spray nozzle. Squeegee off the water and mop any wet areas.
You can use a pressure washer that is no greater than 1500 PSI and it should not be applied closer than 30cm from the decking surface. Use a normal fan nozzle and not a dirt blaster type nozzle.
