  • IMPORTANTLY WALKSURE ACHIEVES THE 'LOW SLIP' RATING IN EACH OF THE THREE TEST PROCEDURES, ACROSS, DIAGONAL TO AND ALONG THE BOARD LENGTH.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
  • REGULAR CLEANING WITH A MILD DETERGENT, TOGETHER WITH TREATMENT OF EXPOSED TIMBER COMPONENTS WILL HELP TO MAINTAIN WALKSURE DECKING. WALKSURE CAN BE CLEANED USING A JET WASHER AT A PRESSURE UP TO 1500 PSI.
FIXING INSTRUCTIONS
 
METSÄ WOOD RECOMMENDS THAT WALKSURE IS FACE FIXED WITH 2 x 63MM COATED DECKSCREWS AT EACH JOIST. SCREWS SHOULD BE DRIVEN DOWN BELOW THE SURFACE OF THE RUBBER WHICH HIDES THE SCREWHEAD AND PROVIDES MAXIMUM HOLD.
  • METSÄ WOOD HAS APPROVED THE USE OF DECK-TITE 4.5x63MM TRI-LOCK GREEN COATED DECK SCREW WHICH CARRIES DECKMARK ACCREDITATION.
  • IF DECK BOARDS ARE CUT THE SAWN ENDS SHOULD BE RE-TREATED WITH A SUITABLE TIMBER PRESERVATIVE.
  • SUPPORTS SHOULD BE SET AT A MAXIMUM OF 450MM CENTRES. A SLIGHT FALL SHOULD BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN TO HELP IMPROVE DRAINAGE.
  • PLEASE REFER TO OUR DECK FIXING GUIDELINES BROCHURE FOR MORE DETAILS.
