Vulcan Smooth Decking

Created from thermally modified, rapidly renewable plantation timber, Abodo Vulcan Smooth Decking will produce a natural and inviting exterior space for your home.

Abodo Vulcan Smooth Decking is created from thermally modified softwood timber sourced from FSC® certified New Zealand plantation forests.

To further the stability of the wood, it is graded with semi-vertical grain orientation and is treated with a low VOC organic preservative system (OPX) that includes a water repellent, resulting in superior durability.

Due to Abodo’s thermal modification process, Vulcan Smooth Decking has a reduced equilibrium moisture content which increases its stability.

This process also enhances the finish of the timber, which has a beautiful, homogeneous brown colour. Available in a smooth dressed uncoated surface, Vulcan Smooth Decking will suit the architecture of any home.

How do I install and fix Abodo decking timber?

Abodo kiln dried decking timber requires allowance for expansion when it gets wet, therefore a larger than normal gap needs to be left between boards- minimum 6mm in most cases.

We recommend fixing the boards with two stainless steel screws per joist in all cases such as the Abodo Decking Screw. Abodo decking is nice and easy to fix into – pre drilling is not required in most cases.

Joist centres should be at maximum 450mm in most cases. We recommended coating the wood all sides with oil and - regularly as required thereafter. Refer to product technical data sheet on the resources page for more specific info.

Is there a maintenance requirement for Abodo decking timber?

At a minimum, Abodo Wood products should be cleaned at least every 12 months with soapy water, a brush and water.

These are natural wood products, so some surface discoloration or mould and mildew may occur due to environmental conditions and exposure.

Heavier discoloration or mould growth can be removed with Rejuvenator or other similar oxygenating cleaner.

If coated, then the coating should be re-applied once it begins to fade or stop water beading, depending on the aspect to the weather re-coat cycle may be 12-18 months.

Please see our Maintenance Guidelines for more information.
