Plantation grown Kiln Dried ACQ treated.
All timber decking stocked is what is commonly marketed as a “reeded reversible” decking pattern or profile. That means, one side of the decking is reeded (in other words has grooves machined in it) and the other side is plain or smooth in its finish.
It is a widely held misconception that the grooves provide a “non slip” surface for use in wet areas. This is not the case! In fact the reason decking has grooves machined in it is to reduce surface contact between the decking itself and the joist, thus preventing water from being held between the two surfaces and preventing premature decay. On this basis, we recommend you install your decking plain side up. However, ultimately, the choice is yours!

Treated pine is an inexpensive, sustainable solution for your decking or screening needs. We stock 90 x 22 mm treated pine decking boards available in set lengths:
