WHY CHOOSE CCA TREATED PINE DECKING:

CCA Treated Pine Decking is widely used and continues to grow in popularity and demand, because it is very cost-effective and holds a charming appeal.

Pine timber is ideal for preservative treatment, and when treated to the correct hazard class, CCA Treated Pine Decking will last as long as most hardwoods. Preservative treatment protects the timber against insect damage and fungal decay, thereby significantly contributing to the durability of Pine timber used as decking and sub structure material.

Pine timber is easy to work with, and works well with both hand and machine tools, providing a satisfactory finish. Workability significantly contributes to the low cost of installation of CCA Treated Pine decking compared to hardwoods.

Because Pine trees grow relatively fast, the tree that must replace the timber that was used in your deck will be ready to harvest before your decking needs replacement, making CCA Treated Pine Decking the sustainable option.

Pine Timber is harvested from sustainably managed local forests. Consumers choosing CCA Treated Pine significantly contribute to the prevention of illegal harvesting of indigenous hardwood species used as decking material, making CCA Treated Pine decking an environmentally friendly choice.

CCA Treated Pine Decking is an excellent choice for the harsh African conditions and when installed, treated and maintained correctly it will last you a lifetime.

CCA Treated Pine Decking has many different applications and can for example also be used for walkways, fencing, picnic benches and patio furniture.

H1

International trends set a H1 level. Because South Africa followed the international example when setting up its own Hazard classification, it was felt that H1 in the South African context would not be required, as this caters only for countries in which there are no termites.

H2 INTERNAL (LOW HAZARD)

This is also for interior use only and timber treated under this classification should be roof trusses, laminated beams, internally used structural timber, ceiling boards, flooring, paneling, doors, cupboards, skirting, window frames and plywood. Chemicals used here would be mainly CCA, TBTNP and Boron.

H3 EXTERIOR ABOVE GROUND (MODERATE HAZARD)

CCA and Creosote are mostly used for this and higher H class treatments. H3 covers balustrades, fencing bearers and slats, outdoor decking and beams, garden furniture, laminated beams, weather board, steps, cladding, stairs, log homes, gates, fascia boards and plywood. Spacers and cross arms used with electrical, distribution, telephone and light poles are treated to H3.

H4 GROUND CONTACT (HIGH HAZARD)

This level of treatment helps prevent agricultural posts and landscaping structures from rotting and termite attack. Also recommended for treatment in this hazard class are playground structures, fencing, pergolas, carports, flower boxes, decking, bridges and stakes, as well as electrical, distribution, telephone and lighting poles.

H5 FRESHWATER (HIGH HAZARD)

Timber which falls into this category, is timber exposed to continual wetting or where the timber is planted in wet soil. Timber which will fall into this category could be jetties, drains, walkways, retaining walls and slipways.

H6 MARINE (HIGH HAZARD)

Only the use of the CCA chemical with Creosote is recommended for this application. Only timber treated with both these chemicals will offer complete protection against marine borers. Jetties, slipways, retaining walls and walkways will fall under this section.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES | SA PINE DECKING SUPPLIER

Joist spacing is determined by the thickness of the deck/ floorboards. (20 × thickness) Joist size is determined by bearer spacing and bearer size by the distance between poles.

These specifications are available from the South African National Standard for timber frame building (SANS10082).

Deck boards should be fixed with screws at each joist, leaving a gap of +/- 5mm between boards. Normal chip board screws of the correct size and length can be used. Make sure the surface is clean and dry before coating it with a good quality sealer to protect it against the elements. Our experienced staff will be happy to assist in choosing the right products for your specific needs.
