LIFE Outdoor Decking (Parquet and WPC)

Nature and pure-state substance of wood floor for outside you can lay down everywhere.

Decking is the outdoor wood flooring. It’s perfect, resistant, elegant and refined for every external space like terraces, gardens, balconies, courtyards, covered walkways, poolside, gangways, platforms, patios, gazebos, jetty, boats, etc.
Decking floors put together the design, the warmth and the charm of the wood.
Timbers we use to make a Decking floor are high resistant to atmospheric agent.
Listonies, from 18 to 22 mm thick, to make safe the foot traffic, have different borders: head and long side Tongue & Groove, Groove & Groove with hidden clips, 4 sides rounded or other typologies, if requested.
Carpet tiles, from 18 to 20 thick, are composed by parallel and put side by side elements. The surface is anti-slip, fasten by 3 transverse elements, in order to guarantee the best solidity and stability.
The WPC (Wood Plastic Composite), 20 mm thick, is composed by wooden fiber and recycled thermoplastic materials. It’s innovative, anti-slip, water and humidity resistant, anti-mold, flexible, ecological, and 100% recyclable. It has a double-face outline and that’s why you can place it both smooth and scratched side.
Decking and WPC laying can directly take place on bases or on larch wood or aluminum joists, with screws and visible nails or hidden clips.
Decking floorings are traded with specific impregnating, to prevent the discoloration process resulting from the sun exposure.
Thanks to its resistance and elegance, the Decking floor and WPC are ideal for evert external spaces, subject to atmospheric agent.

Application Advices

For the application of the Decking and WPC flooring you must turn to a qualified and specialized staff.
Decking and WPC flooring can be laid on every base (concrete, sand, gravel, grass) as long as it’s stable and well-levelled, and an adequate slope is expected, so water can properly flow.
The larch wood or aluminum joists can be fixed on the base or on support disks, adjustable in high, so that flooring will be well levelled and water channel can be placed under it.
To lay Decking or WPC flooring on a grass base, it’s necessary that the area is levelled, and you must extend 1 or 2 layers of woven in polyester, to avoid the growth of the grass.
Space between listonies must be 3 mm or more, to guarantee the stability and to avoid a dangerous foot traffic.

Maintenance Advices

Decking flooring maintenance imposes both ordinary and extraordinary care.
For the ordinary care is advisable to clean the floor with a brush or to wash it with a high-pressure water or simply with a damp soft rag and a suitable cleanser. After the laying, a few months later, to prevent a “dry” effect on view and touch, you should use twice a year a specific impregnating, before winter and summer at least.
For the extraordinary care, advisable every 5 years, you must turn to a specialized staff who will sand, smooth and varnish the floor with a specific impregnating, to revive the color, shininess and look.
Since Wpc flooring is high resistant to the sun discoloration effect, it doesn’t need to be particularly treated. You should just wash the floor with water and a suitable cleaning.
