1 :: As the mother of two toddlers, I am obviously concerned about the safety aspects of having decking. My main worries are the nails and fixings that are used.

The problems that can arise with using nails to hold the decking in place is that they can loosen and lift, this leaves a nasty barb that is potentially dangerous to hands and feet of adults and children alike. However, our system of imported deck fixings is totally concealed, therefore eliminating this danger.

3 :: How long does a wooden deck last?

All of our timbers are pressure treated which ensures a life expectancy of at least 15 years in direct contact with the ground, and 40 years when the timbers are suspended. The fixings we use are all galvanised steel this prevents rusting which causes unsightly staining on the timber and would eventually decay.
