INSTALLATION MANUAL


UCO DecoWood – Decking

Uco DecoWood can be installed on metal and timber frame structures. The spacing of the framing or joint is 400mm – 600mm c/c. Refer to Uniform Load table for recommended joist spacing.

Installation of UCO DecoWood on Metal and Timber Framing

Measure and mark the position of screw holes on UCO DecoWood

Pre-drill with a smaller diameter drill bit, then a larger diameter drill bit to form 1mm diameter hole larger than screw diameter.

For timber framing, fix with timber screw. For metal framing, fix with a self-drilling, countersunk head screw, Recommended screw sizes are No.10 or 12 diameter with appropriate length. Screw positions should be at least 12mm from the board edges. Boards should be laid straight and positioned with 3mm min. Spaces in between using either spacers or wedges to ensure the gaps are even.

Clean the screw heads, then conceal them with putty/filler.

The polyethylene backing rod is installed before apply P.U. sealant or filter at the 3mm min. Gap between two pieces of boards (optional).

Smooth the surface of concealed area by using a fine sand paper.

Apply Primer with a paint brush over the concealed area before the next painting session.
