Basic deck parts include the ledger and band around the perimeter, floor joists across the middle, and surface boards for flooring. Frame spacing for trex decking refers to the measurement of space that is required between floor joists.
Most WPC boards are made from recycled materials, up to 90% of the total composition. These materials are typically reclaimed hardwoods and recycled plastics, reducing the amount of plastic heading for landfill. Some suppliers also have FSC accreditation, which ensures the responsible use of timber in manufacture. It is worth noting that you should avoid decking which uses rice pulp instead of reclaimed hardwood, as this material may not be recycled and it prone to moisture absorption, leading to warping and premature decay.
We sell composite decking to every corner of the world
We export more than 30000 tons wood-plastic composites including WPC decking, WPC fence, WPC wall panel and WPC decking tiles to Europe, America, Oceania and the Middle East.
Due to the plastic containment of WPC decking, the material has improved durability over its alternatives. This type of decking is designed to be durable and its material, blend and finish make it resistant to lots of the factors that usually reduce the life of wood decking.
WPC decking resists fading, staining, scratching and mould and is so durable that STORM offers a 10-year guarantee on our WPC range against splitting, rotting, cracking and decay.
What Is Frame Spacing for WPC Decking?
WPC Decking and other composite decking brands are considerably heavier and more flexible than wooden surface boards. Whether you are building a new composite deck or replacing old wooden surface boards on an existing deck, you will need to compensate for the additional weight and flexibility when designing your plans for the frame.
