Decking & Screening

Australia’s outdoor lifestyle and temperate climate enables building designs to incorporate outdoor living areas for entertaining and relaxing.

Decks are a popular feature in Australian homes, used under pergolas and around swimming pools.

Screens can provide privacy, protection, shade, definition and style to your outdoor area.

Some decking is supplied in a reeded or “grooved” profile on one face.  This facilitate stable drying and prolonged life of decking boards.  Reeds should always be installed face down.

Our timber decking and screening products may be stained or clear finished to enhance their natural beauty, which also provides added protection from the elements.
