Types of Decking
When selecting timber for your deck, it’s important to purchase the right decking timber for the job. So we stock the most popular and reliable timber range available. Softwoods decking comes in many different species offering variable strength, grain and density.
Clear Treated Pine
Clear treated pine provides the same excellent colour and performance as treated pine decking but without the presence of knots or the greenish hue of CCA treatment that can cause discoloration. It has a density rating of 550, a toughness rating of L and a durability class of 1, with colour variations ranging from pale straw to yellow. It is highly popular and affordable, being one of our best selling decking options. This decking material is known for its exceptional stain-taking ability, sturdiness and durability.
Kapur, a hardwood decking board, is imported from Indonesia. It is a DAR board, with slightly rounded corners on all four sides. Kapur boasts a density rating of 750, a toughness rating of M and a durability class of 2, making it suitable for above ground use. It has a WPR colour profile, which typically appears as a light reddish-brown hue with a slight paleness. Kapur is an excellent value decking board that delivers optimal performance, showcasing a beautiful grain pattern and colour.
Ironbark, an Australian Eucalypt hardwood selectively sourced from NSW and QLD, produces highly durable decking boards. These boards are DAR products with a density rating of 1100, a toughness rating of H and a durability class of 1. Their colour profile varies with a WRB rating, with hues typically ranging from light grey, red to dark brown.
Spotted Gum is an Australian hardwood selectively harvested from NSW and QLD for its distinct spotted appearance. Spotted Gum decking is DAR finished, offering high durability with a density rating of 1100, a toughness rating of H and a durability class of 1 for above ground use. These boards have a brown colour profile, with variations ranging from light to dark and boast a unique wavy pattern in the timber grain.
