DIY – Planning
Outdoor decking places timber into one of the harshest environments possible, from fully covered and enclosed to elevated and fully exposed; making selection of species and maintenance key considerations when designing a deck. SwiftDeck is solid natural timber, and will behave in the same way as any comparable decking. All timber moves, it is a natural material and responds to the climatic conditions in which it is placed.
SwiftDeck is produced in a variety of Class 1 and Class 2 above ground naturally durable timbers, all of which have been extensively tested for their performance in the varying climatic conditions of Australia.
SwiftDeck is installed on a standard frame – stumps, bearers and joists should be constructed to Australian Building Code Standards as per any deck in your particular situation.
Joists must sit on top of bearers, or have at least 35mm free on the side to allow fixing of the SwiftDeck Clip. Maximum 450mm centres.
