  • Best No Slippery/Anti-Slip outdoor decking floors

     

    slippery no slip deckingHow and what to choose to live your outdoor space in full safety.

    When it comes to design your own outdoor area, both in a private house or in the fizzy movida atmosphere of a trendy bar - hotel - restaurant, it’s pretty common to give a high importance to the look of things. It’s a natural choice not to blame… But on the other note we have to be aware in the case of a floor/deck that safety is definitely a key point. When getting wet a floor can really turn into a beautiful but dangerous place… We don’t really want to turn the satisfaction of our great project into the reason of a broken back!

    Looking for a beautiful anti-slip or no slippery at all deck is the hardest task, because when looking around, the offer is really poor in terms of look and find the right balance between look and safety is a real nightmare!

    Looks like someone got that feeling and invested on the formula of an innovative material whose performance when wet are ABSURDLY EXCEPTIONAL! The look??? Well, you can judge yourself.

    Its name is DURO and it is the most innovative floor / decking board around! It gives the look and feel of real wood but MOST OF ALL the laboratory Slippery Tests certified a grip like never seen before, making of DURO the best no slippery material around! Naturally resistant to both sweet and sea water, one of its principal components is HUSKS (skin of the rice grain) whose natural characteristics are to make DURO the best solution in terms of look/anti-slip floor. We’re proud to share with you a short video of the TEST:

    But there’s much more than that! This innovative decking hides underneath the most revolutionary installation systems around, where NO SCREW is required to fix the boards to the understructure! Let’s have a look.

    EasyClick System

The system can be used both for Wood and for Composites such as DURO and ETHERNO (Carbonized Bamboo).

  • Composite Decking (WPC) - How to make the right choice!

    In the world of outdoor flooring, composite decking materials are becoming bigger and bigger. That’s why we all got to be very careful about falling in love with fashion advertised by sales people without the proper technical knowledge. How many times you’ve been told ZERO MAINTENANCE, EASY INSTALLATION, LASTS FOREVER! That’s absolutely wrong... or better, these shouts definitely need a deeper analysis. Let’s go then!

    WPC/BPC Composite - What does that really mean?

    Standard WPC composite decking boards are made of recycled polymers such are PE or HDPE, which are no more and no less than recycled plastic bottles, bags etc.etc. Though this represent a potential good Green commercial hook, those polymers cannot be recycled infinitely! And the boards made out of those polymers are subject to extremely bigger movements and torsions if compared to the not recycled PVC (which can be recycled, is more valuable and doesn’t move as much!).

    This is what we need to know when we approach the idea of buying a composite product, especially if you’re willing to install it... a material that moves a lot needs a master deck builder to deal with, otherwise you just trashed your money. In the compound/mixture of the standard wpc decking boards there is even a percentage of natural product, the most common is SAWDUST! Wow... sawdust! When dropping oil on the floor, my grandmother used to put sawdust on top in order to absorb it and better clean! IT ABSORBS A LOT... really a lot! So again be prepared to dimensional changes according to the percentage of sawdust inside... this again it’s not a that bad thing if you know it before you get it installed (to do it the right way).

    What does it happen when you build your deck with a standard wpc composite decking? Look below:

    compositepavimento composito  pavimento ecofriendly

    What you just seen can happen sooner or later, more or less, according to the quality of decking boards you are buying. This is essential to know in order not to encounter a deep disappointment after what looked like a good deal!

    Composite Decking: Solid or Hollow?

    wpc pieno o alveolare

    A myth needs to be busted: solid = better, hollow = worse !

    This ONLY depends by the quality of the material the boards are made of. In a standard WPC, in fact, a solid board it’s preferable because these kind of composite deckings have a soft structure, and in this case a hollow board could be more fragile if the material is the same. But there a back side to take in consideration, the more mass you have, the more the board will move! It would be much better opting for an innovative material made of PVC... in this case is much better a PVC hollow board than a PE or HDPE solid one! Because it has a stronger, more resistant structure!

    Duro Composite, the new generation of decking composites!

    decking ecofriendlyonsciousness about all the limits linked to WPC/BPC composites lead the italian team of iDecking Revolution to develop a new material to fix the major problems coming from traditional composites.

    Its name is DURO, the new material made of RICE HUSK (skin of the rice grain) and PVC (not recycled). Yes, you got it right... RICE HUSK, a by product that would be otherwise burnt and create CO2 is given a much more noble second life into decking boards with incredible structural performances. It has to be compared to a noble wood other than common composites. Rice grows into water, and the skin of the rice protects the grain till the moment it’s ready to blossom! NATURAL HYDRO REPELLENCY, in fact it is only the micro surface to absorb.

    The perfect contrary of sawdust!

     

  • Decking / Cladding: Traditional Decking System

    decking installazione pavimento

    Though decking is a common product in our culture, nobody knows about the huge lever of skills needed to master this art. Many commercial facilities have been pushing outdoor floorings only as far as the sale side is concerned! WRONG... Decking requires a master Deck Builder. Wether you choose a composite or natural deck, you must know that those boards move, they have to be outside and most of all people walk of that! Consciousness of this is a signal before starting or choosing the best installation system.

    Otherwise you run the risk to buy an excellent material and trash it after one season because of a wrong installation. Decking market offers many installation systems, starting from the traditional ones till the most innovative new generation where the chance to mistake is brought down to near zero!

    Traditional Decking System: Face fastening (screws/nails)

    This is the oldest (not to say jurassic) way to install a deck. Each board need to be spaced and aligned, then all you do is just screwing or nailing it from the top on the below understructure rails. Though it seems easy, you have no idea of the expertise and amount of time you need to put this together without doing a bad thing! First thing to take in consideration, seems dumb to say, but it is the going straight with the nails/screws otherwise you’re gonna create a snake pattern:

    decking viti

    Now you might think that one of the plus of this system is the easy way to remove a board (just a drill/screwdriver)... but... attention! When you lay down the new board you need to put new screws in new places otherwise it won’t hold has strong as before!

    Traditional Decking System: Hidden Clips/Fasteners

    nails screws and fastenersThis is the first kind of innovation that came after the face fastening decking system. Definitely a cool way to get the screws out of sight, but they’re gonna be still there! A little step further though, since the hidden clip in most of time takes down the time needed to space each board. What if you need to remove a board? Perhaps at the centre of your deck? NIGHTMARE !!!!!

    All you have to do is “just and simply” start from the nearest perimeter, take out all the boards till you reach the one you desire to remove, replace it, and re-install everything! Some pirates use to pull the board out and then face fasten it... (forget about that!).

    Conclusions on traditional systems: before buying a decking to be installed through one of these two systems, there are deep consideration to be done, especially to know what you’re going to encounter after some time! The real problem is given by screws... they won’t hold forever! And despite being a time waster thing, it force you to structural maintenance every single season (this depends on the kind of wood/material and screws you use). When the screw fails, the board lifts up, this is not just bad looking, is even dangerous especially if you have kids... just to give you a few examples:

  • How to build a deck: traditional hidden Fasteners vs EasyClick System by iDecking Revolution

    Building a deck is not the easiest task in the world! It still requires master deck builders to take care of that... There’s always some brave handyman who, after some research, loves the do it yourself world and we believe that nothing is impossible. Today we want to compare the classic hidden fasteners system with iDecking’s EasyClick innovative installation system.

    Now let’s go through some useful detail about the two systems and try to understand what are the benefits of a fast and safe installation.

  • It’s DECKING Mania!

    ibiza decking

    Vips, Celebrities, Designers and Architects are going crazy for iDecking Revolution. A great story that touches a lot of gorgeous places just like members of the Elton John band till the famous chain Hard Rock... More and more people choose iDecking for their outdoor flooring/cladding projects! But what is Decking?

    Decking is the international word to mean outdoor wooden/composite flooring boards. A great solution that perfectly fits any design and project plan: it can be modern or country since it allows to play with colors! The most common use of Decking can be all around swimming pools, patios, porch, balconies, garden roofs, cladding, walls, restaurants, hotels and the list goes on and on both in private and public areas.

    What is the best Decking System and Material at the moment?

    The most fashionable and innovative decking is called DURO Composite (won 2 years in a row the innovation prize at the worldwide Domotex show): an EcoFriendly material coming from Rice Husk (the skin of rice grains). Yes, you got it right! A by product transformed into high quality/performance decking and cladding boards! Duro reacts like a good noble wood (IPE, TEAK). Rice grows in water and it’s naturally protected by its skin until the seed is ready to blossom!!! A natural skill that other material don’t have... just imagine that most part of other composite decking boards are made with wood sawdust (which has quite the opposite characteristics!

    decking beach club

    DURO means HARD in Italian, and that name didn’t happen casually. The surface is very much resistant and doesn’t feel fake! It is a stainable/paintable composite... yes again, you got it right! YOU CAN protect it with a transparent color or give it the color you desire by applying a water based paint.

    This means that after years we are gonna be able to restore our decking and bring it back brand new... if there is a resistant stain, we can sand it and bring it back brand new again... without the need to change it, because only its micro-surface absorbs.

    The expansion coefficient of each board is just 1mm per running meter, and only in length! Another reason why DURO has no competitor is for the REVOLUTIONARY installation systems patented to install it! in fact, the market is full of very nice boards but they are still tied to face fastening or hidden screwed clips...DURO CAN BE INSTALLED WITH ZERO SCREWS... just with he pressure of your feet! This has a HUUUUUUUGE impact on installation time and overall lasting of the product!

    EasyClick and EasyChange systems patented by iDecking Revolution and available even on real woods are not only a product, they really are the SOLUTION every deck builder and customer was waiting for!

    • EasyClick: Decking has never been faster, easier, stronger than this! EasyClick system by iDecking Revolution is: ZERO SCREWS, 5 Times Faster to install, EcoFriendly, Low Maintenance and most of all MADE IN ITALY. The system can be combined to both iDecking DURO composite made of Rice Husk or Traditional Woods such as Teak and IPE.
    • EasyChange: Imagine to be able to replace/remove every board from no matter where in the deck without ripping off all the other boards... just one!
