Outdoor decking represents the wood flooring used to cover outdoor surfaces. … Their characteristics make them suitable for decking, together with the heat-treated bamboo and ash. Decking (or outdoor parquet) is perfect for covering terraces, gardens, balconies, patios, pool edges, walkways and gazebos.
Thermally modified wood, is wood that has been modified by a controlled pyrolysis process of wood being heated (> 180 °C) in absence of oxygen inducing some chemical changes to the chemical structures of cell wall components (lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose) in the wood in order to increase its durability. Low oxygen content prevents the wood from burning at these high temperatures. Several different technologies are introduced using different media including nitrogen gas, steam and hot oil.Read more

Generally, hardwoods used for decking come from tropical forests. Much of the logging taking place to produce these woods, especially teak, mahogany and ipê, is occurring illegally, as outlined in numerous reports by environmental organizations such as Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and Rain-forest Relief. US tropical wood imports are rising, partly due to the demand for decking.
Deck tiles are easy to install in locations that already have a substructure in place, such as an existing deck or a flat concrete patio.
Most often, this decking material consists of wood or composite slats fixed to a lattice plastic base that interlocks with other pieces.
That means no nails for you (unless you want to attach a trim that doesn’t interlock). Most tiles come in a uniform 1-square-foot shape.
Knowing their size is important when planning how many tiles you need to complete your project.
