Ekologix Screening

Faqs

How does Ekologix Screening compare to traditional timber decking?

Ekologix Screening is less likely to rot, warp, crack or splinter. This is because Ekologix Screening absorbs less water than timber and is therefore less likely to suffer from damage caused by water e.g. mould and rot.

Is Ekologix Screening the same as Ekodeck?

The exact same formula is used for both Ekodeck and Ekologix Screening. The only difference is the smaller profile, which allows you to install in vertical applications.

Are the Ekologix Screening colours the same as Ekodeck?

Yes, the colours in both products is the same so you can use both products in a project and it will match.

Will Ekologix Screening lose its colour or fade?

Ekologix Screening will lighten when exposed to water and sunlight, reaching its overall ‘weathered’ colour after 3-6 months, depending on environment. Ekologix Screening will never fade to grey when left untreated; instead, it will maintain its natural ‘weathered’ colour.

What kind of maintenance or cleaning is involved with Ekologix Screening?

Hot water mixed with dishwashing liquid or sugar soap and a medium bristle brush is usually all you need to clean Ekologix Screening. This will take care of the vast majority of stains and watermarks. When it comes to treating tougher stains, please refer to our comprehensive Care and Maintenance Guide.

Standard woodworking tools (e.g. drop/circular saw, cordless drill, router etc.) can be used to cut, drill, saw, fasten and rout Ekologix Screening.

We recommend using good quality 8 gauge stainless steel screws when installing Ekologix Screening onto timber and good quality 8 gauge galvanised steel screws when installing onto steel. You must pre-drill and countersink the boards for a flush finish. Please download a copy of our Installation Guide for more details.

Can I install Ekolgix Screening straight onto a wall?

It is strictly not recommended to install Ekologix Screening directly onto a brick or concrete wall, as it is a composite product. Ekologix Screening will naturally expand and contract and it does get marginally hotter than traditional timber screening.

Can I use a nail gun?

Ekologix Screening is just as dense as good quality hardwood timbers. These timbers require pre-drilling and Ekologix Screening is no different. As a result please do not use nail guns.

No, Ekodeck Screening cannot be used as posts and is not classified as a ‘structural’ or load bearing product.
