Decking and Flooring
Sakkho® tiles can be fitted over a decking sub-floor also called sub frame or deck base. All tiles installed on joists for walking or seating use must have the centre, edges and all corners adequately supported. Each tile must be supported on minimum 3 joists or more.
Using Sakkho® tiles to build a decking is similar to building a standard, traditional decking with the main difference being a narrower spacing or span between joists.
The success of your decking project using Sakkho tiles depends almost entirely on the way you design and build your deck subframe or decking base which should include accurate measurements to ensure the middle of each tile is always properly supported.
Pressure treated softwood joists are the standard timber used for a decking subframe and any tiles modified or cut may require reinforcing to keep the integrity and structural strength of the tile.
We always recommend the installation of a decking to be completed by a professional installer familiar with local regulations.
A solid and lasting decking using Sakkho tiles depends on many aspects which must be followed and executed properly; this include:
