Before installing Ultradeck Composite Decking we recommend that you seek the advice of a qualified builder, or an accredited deck installer. It is important to be fully compliant with local, state and building codes when planning your building project. When using in high volume traffic and commercial applications, we recommend that you obtain the advice of a qualified builder for the correct installation requirements.
Ultradeck Composite Decking planks should always be carried on their side for increased support. It is important to handle Ultradeck Composite Decking planks in accordance with relevant OH&S requirements and not to attempt to lift or carry more than the recommended safe work methods.
Splinters, warped boards and popped nails are common problems associated with traditional timber decks. Ultradeck eliminates these safety hazards, welcoming bare feet.

We recommend using conventional hardwood cutting tools when working with Ultradeck Composite Decking.
After installation you must thoroughly clean your deck to remove any leftover dust from the manufacturing process.
Ultradeck Composite Decking materials can be cleaned by using a low pressure washer that is no greater than 1500 PSI and it should not be applied closer than 25 cm from the decking surface. Use a normal fan nozzle and not a dirt blaster type nozzle.
Nailing is not recommended for fixing Ultradeck composite boards.
