Laying the wooden battens for the installation of outdoor decking
are an essential tool in the installation of outdoor decking. These structural elements provide a solid base for the installation of the decking, ensuring a safe and durable installation.
The laying of wooden battens should begin with proper preparation of the ground. It is important to ensure that the ground is level and free of any obstructions such as roots or stones. Once the ground is prepared, the timber battens can be laid. It is important to ensure that the battens are in a straight line and at the same distance from each other. The recommended distance between each rake is approximately 60 cm.
The wooden battens should be fixed to the floor using galvanised nails or wooden dowels. It is important to ensure that the battens are securely fastened to the floor and correctly levelled to ensure a safe and durable installation.
Once the wooden battens are in place and properly secured, the decking can be laid on top of them. It is important to ensure that the decking boards are level and aligned with the battens, and that they are properly secured using nails or screws specifically for outdoor decking.
