No, Edge Boards are not available for our Classic range. You can make your own edge board by ripping the groove off using a circular saw and a straight edge, and then refinishing the edge with 40 grit sand paper. Check out how it’s done here!
Being a composite product, Ekodeck Classic is made up of recycled plastics, and will get marginally hotter than traditional timber. Darker colours absorb more heat – so please take care on hot days. If you wouldn’t go barefoot on a timber on a hot day, please avoid doing so on your Ekodeck Classic deck.
Like all our products, Ekodeck Classic boards are UV stabilised, meaning that you can be sure that your new Ekodeck Classic deck won’t fade to grey like timber when exposed to the elements.
As Ekodeck Classic contains natural timber fibres, when these fibres are exposed to UV over a long period of time, these fibres may slightly lose their brightness, as would any other exterior building material.
No, due to the HDPE component of Ekodeck Classic, painting, staining or sealing is not recommended.
In the event that your Ekodeck Classic decking is scratched, it can easily be repaired by sanding using 40 grit sandpaper along the grain of the board.
Yes, you can use a pressure washer to clean Ekodeck Classic.
We recommend using a pressure washing no higher than 2000psi, with a fan nozzle attachment.
Our specifically designed concealed fixing system, Quickfix, makes it easier and quicker than ever to install your deck.
Ekodeck Classic decking can be laid on the same type of bearer and joist substrates as a traditional hardwood deck. Just make sure that you are following our installation guidelines and installing with a maximum joist span of 450mm.

Our Classic range of Ekodeck is UV stabilised and has anti-mould agents included in the mix, making it a longer-lasting alternative to traditional timber decking.

You don’t need any specialised tools for installing an Ekodeck Classic deck. Standard wood-working tools, such as a drill driver, a drop saw and/or a circular saw with hardwood blades, can be used for installation.
No, Ekodeck Classic is not classified as a structural product and therefore cannot be used as a subframe or for joists.
