Structure Material Options

There is nothing more important than the supporting structure or framework for a specific product and profile. One must ensure the materials used for this application will handle the environment for which they are designed and subjected. It is not uncommon for there to be a combination of materials for different applications where structural material is required and engineers are possibly involved.

Lightweight Galvanised Steel – C Channel – 1.2mm thick – 1.2mm wall

Galvanised Steel Structures and Framework – For Inland Projects

On inland projects, Fishers Decking & Flooring does not use timber in a normal application as the supporting material (there are exceptions). In regions where the air is dry, with very hot and then very cold conditions, rain and moisture (like the Highveld, Gauteng), timber does not generally work well. Trying to maintain timber structures or frameworks in these conditions becomes overwhelming and impractical. In some cases, you have limited access to what you can see and maintain. In these cases, a galvanised steel frame makes much more sense.

Timber is a natural product. So, it has a limited life span. Without constant nourishment from wood preservatives, the lifespan of a timber product decreases very quickly and dramatically. It only makes sense to use a durable material. The best material we currently have available in our industry is galvanised steel. So, all of Fishers Decking & Flooring’s inland projects are done only using galvanised steel or our solid plastic or composite wood profiles.

This 1.2mm wall thick x  65mm x 35mm x 15mm(as it a C Channel) x 6000m Long Light  galvanised steel is suitable for any and most residential projects and can also be used in commercial projects, Fishers Decking & Flooring use it all the time

Galvanised Light weight C channel is a standard stock item.

Solid Composite Wood Joists

This is an amazing profile that lasts for a very long time. It is also 100% maintenance-free, and is rot- and termite-resistant. While there are various other applications for this profile, this is possibly the best profile available for the structure or framework for your composite wood installation and application. For this reason, it costs more than all the other structure options.

This solid composite wood profile can be machined like timber. It can be reduced in size or thinned out to accommodate installations where the space is limited. For example, if a door needs to open over the deck, the plank thickness can be reduced so that it fits comfortably between the existing floor and the bottom of the door.

This profile can have a small void between the ground and this joist, unlike the recycled plastic joist.  It is very strong when it is supported at 350mm spacing and gives an even better result than galvanised steel.

If you are going to apply this installation application, please ensure you use an expert to avoid very costly mistakes.

Solid Recycled Plastic Joist

Being 100% maintenance-free and resistant to rot and termites, this is the perfect profile to use, provided it is on an installation application that is on something level and solid (like a level concrete or tiled surface).

These recycled plastic battens /joists/ spacer profiles work well when there is no void (gap) between the joist and the solid surface. They like to sit flush onto a solid foundation and are ideal for conditions where one does not require a raised structure. All composite profiles require support or a spacer and cannot be fitted directly to a surface.

This installation application requires an expert.
