FAQs

Ekodeck Screening is less likely to rot, warp, crack or splinter. This is because Ekodeck Screening absorbs less water than timber and is therefore less likely to suffer from damage caused by water e.g. mould and rot.

The exact same formula is used for both Ekodeck and Ekodeck Screening. The only difference is the smaller profile, which allows you to install in vertical applications.

Yes, the colours in both products is the same so you can use both products in a project and it will match.

Ekodeck Screening will never fade to grey like timber when exposed to the elements. Ekodeck Screening contains 45% natural timber fibres. When exposed to UV these fibres will slightly lose their brightness. This is a normal process for any exterior building material. After 3-6 months Ekodeck Screening will stablise and maintain its colour.

Hot water mixed with dishwashing liquid or sugar soap and a medium bristle brush is usually all you need to clean Ekodeck Screening. This will take care of the vast majority of stains and watermarks. When it comes to treating tougher stains, please refer to our comprehensive Care and Maintenance Guide.

Standard woodworking tools (e.g. drop/circular saw, cordless drill, router etc.) can be used to cut, drill, saw, fasten and rout Ekodeck Screening.

We recommend using good quality 8 gauge stainless steel screws when installing Ekodeck Screening onto timber and good quality 8 gauge galvanised steel screws when installing onto steel. You must pre-drill and countersink the boards for a flush finish. Please download a copy of our Installation Guide for more details.

It is strictly not recommended to install Ekodeck Screening directly onto a brick or concrete wall, as it is a composite product. Ekodeck Screening will naturally expand and contract and it does get marginally hotter than traditional timber screening.

Ekodeck Screening is just as dense as good quality hardwood timbers. These timbers require pre-drilling and Ekodeck Screening is no different. As a result please do not use nail guns.

No, Ekodeck Screening cannot be used as posts and is not classified as a ‘structural’ or load bearing product.

Oiling or painting is not recommended.

Yes, you can use a pressure washer that is no greater than 1500 PSI and it should not be applied closer than 30cm from the surface of the slats. Use a normal fan nozzle and not a dirt blaster type nozzle.

Ekodeck Screening is designed and tested in Australia and manufactured in China under our stringent quality controls, supervision and monitoring.
