Easy to clean outdoor decking floors

Easy to clean outdoor decking floors

Whenever looking for an outdoor flooring solution, the first thing not to be undervalued must definitely be the CLEANING factor! Just like when we buy a car, beautifully shown inside the dealer showroom, we know we’ll have to constantly wash it to keep it nice and clean. In fact, if this is the rule for a car, let’s prepare to the idea that for any outdoor floor this consideration has a way more important value. Probably we’re more familiar with cars than floors, so it’s easy to mistake by giving less attention to this factor while conquered by the look. An easy to clean floor (any kind) is the key to its lasting and your satisfaction in time.

Unfortunately (till now…) the best outdoor floors that would guarantee a truly easy and quick cleaning surface were not so beautiful to look. You basically had to put up with cold and bad looking solutions. For those who knew, a beautiful decking floor would in fact be a sort of compromise… you know that you’re getting a truly beautiful floor but you’ll need to maintain it like a baby (unless you don’t care about dirt). 

iDecking Revolution has premiered at the 2020 DOMOTEX Show the new DURO 2.0 decking board! Probably the easiest and quickest decking board to be cleaned and maintained (is the lowest maintenance deck you can ever get at iDecking). The floor is made through an innovative co-extrusion process which gives the surface the famous anti stain absorption quality! This comes of course without renouncing to beauty. A team of Italian Designers has in fact study the surface in order to replicate a warm and brushed wood grain effect!

Available in 5 different colors: BURMA - TEAK - DENIM - TERRA - HELMUT and absolutely compatible with the whole range of iDecking installation systems which can guarantee the best life of your floor (longer lasting) and versatility in time (including the chance to replace/remove any board from anywhere in the deck without any screw!!!)… let’s have a look at those together:

The ultimate and best decking board is finally out: Duro 2.0 Decking by iDecking Revolution

duro20 pavimento composito

Internationally premiered during the DOMOTEX WORLD OF FLOORING Exhibition 2020, the DURO 2.0 material by iDecking Revolution is finally out and already conquering its well deserved success! Whoever is looking for building, contracting, buying a new deck, knows the importance of choosing the right material at the best price and lowest maintenance requirements. Especially is we’re talking about decking, which has to stay out and battle with any kind of weather. iDecking Revolution is the Italian brand known to have brought innovation in the world of decking, and it’s surprising this world once more by launching the evolution of its most known decking material: DURO 2.0. While keeping the best plus and characteristics of the old version, the DURO 2.0 adds to its structure truly phenomenal advantages, let’s have a look together:

Duro 2.0 Decking NEW composition

duro20 superficie

Decking DURO 2.0 is a composite floor made thorough co-extrusion process and composed by the following ingredients:

  • Rice Husks: literally the skin of the Rice grains! This natural trick helps the board performing like no other in humid and water exposed situations like: seaside, swimming pools, tropical weather and so on.
  • Bamboo: Bamboo dust! This is the first new touch for DURO! Thanks to the bamboo dust, the board acquires a drastically increased stability!
  • HDPE Polymers: the plastic part, blent together with the natural ingredients composes a decking floor much more stable than it’s predecessor.

Antistain and Color high performance: here we come with the real BIG news! Other than its new composition, the DURO 2.0 has much more to say. Its co-extrusion processing allows the board surface to be capped with an innovative film fixing two of the most annoying facts about decking: Cleaning and Color Fading! Thanks to this capsule, DURO 2.0 is anti stain guaranteed (since there’s no absorption) and extremely easy to clean (for the same reason)! The capsule protects the floor from the UV Rays making it MUCH MORE stable as far as color fading is concerned! 

Duro 2.0 Decking Surface

With DURO 2.0, iDecking Revolution makes its masterpiece as far as the board surface is concerned! The effect given is the one of an incredibly beautiful brushed wood grain managing different color tones, the result over an installation is astonishing!

DURO Decking, the only true alternative to traditional wooden deck floors

pavimento composito duro The king of outdoor floors

DURO is the name of the composite material that iDecking Revolution has introduced into the world of outdoor flooring. The first and unusual peculiarity of this material is its natural component, namely: The husk of the rice grain! This innovation makes DURO an extremely resistant to water and bad weather material.

The first important thing to emphasize is that, despite the DURO is part of the family of composite floors (commonly WPC), it is to be considered in all respects as an alternative to a noble wood and not to another composite floor. In fact, the characteristics of DURO bind it much more to wood than to composite decking colleagues, let's see why:

Processing

The Duro can in all respects be handled on the construction site like wood. It can be cut, shaped and even sanded just like you do with Teak, with Ipe and so on. Especially the sanding is the first real strength of this composite, which is not possible in other WPC floors.

Treatment and colour

DURO is a product that Naturally has a chromatic identity comparable to a light gray, a color that among other things never goes out of fashion. Its natural color is reminiscent of the tables of Teak or Ipe oxidized by time with the difference of not having slits on the surface and keeping the gray color much more homogeneous. Attention, we are about to open a truly extraordinary parenthesis, the DURO, just like wood, allows it to be treated / painted with water colours supplied by iDecking!

This means that not only will we be able to protect the floor from the wear of time, but we could even hypothesize to color it at will just like we do with wood when giving it over the oil that gives Teak (for example) nourishment to the fibers and that dark honey-colored ... magic that only a lived-in floor can tell.

There are other aspects of DURO that even place it at a TOP quality level even compared to wood, such as:

Anti-slip Certificate

Whoever buys a DURO Natural decking, buys a floor that by its nature is non-slip certified, even in the version with a smooth/flat surface. While in the wood it is necessary to mill the surface in order to obtain a non-slip striped surface and if necessary treat with gripping paints, in the case of DURO this is not necessary because it is already part of the characteristics of this innovative material for outdoor paving. Not for nothing, the DURO, is the decking preferred by architects and customers who wish to pave around their own pool, increasing (especially if attended by children) the safety coefficient.

Water and Stains

Thanks to its natural component, the rice husk, the Duro is a hyper water resistant material. Unlike many wood species, DURO only absorbs on its micro-surface. Where it is water that leaves a halo or grease that creates a stain, it will not penetrate into the stave structure as with wood, but will only be part of the surface. What may seem to be a flaw in the beginning is actually a great merit, and we explain why. If we wash a wooden floor with water rich in limestone, it is possible that, when dried, the calcareous halo is better absorbed by the wood. Good for the eyes, bad for the wood ... because all that stuff has done nothing but end up inside the stave and the passing of time can only sanction its rottenness!

In DURO instead everything remains on the surface, so any Alone or Stain can be cleaned with a jet of water and a cleaning product or, in the worst and aggressive case of stain, let us remember that we can always sand the area and then treat everything with a protective transparent.

duro decking composito esterno

Movement

the DURO, like all materials that have a plastic component, is susceptible to thermal shocks and has an expansion coefficient. The good news is that this expansion occurs only due to the length !!! And this is a feature that allows every deck builder to be able to manage the installation, having to foresee only this movement factor. Instead when it comes to wood, in addition to the length, the builder will have to consider torsion coefficient and deformation even on the width of the plank! Furthermore iDecking Revolution has patented a "head connector" called iJack which allows you to keep the gap between one slat and the other under control!

 

Fire Resistance

While the fire resistance of wood is zero, unless obtained thanks to a fireproof paint, DURO is certified fireproof with class B1.

Duro Excellence

The existence of a DURO variant called DURO EXCELLENCE must be mentioned. The material, in its composition does not change, but, in the case of DURO EXCELLENCE iDecking Revolution adds color and wood grain effect to the surface. So the DURO EXCELLENCE is to make it short, a DURO that comes out already colored. The thing to consider is that it too retains all the characteristics of the DURO Natural, so it is to be evaluated as an alternative to wood and not to a fake plastic composite.

duro excellence esterno composito

So we will find ourselves in front of a colored product that over time becomes gray due to UV rays, just like TEAK or IPE (noble woods that exceed 100 euros per square meter and which graying is a characteristic desired by who buys).

However, it can be re-treated and protected, but there is always to keep in mind that those who choose DURO choose a material that combines the characteristics of wood with the benefits of an engineered product. Those who intend to buy a composite decking instead that does not stain or discolor will find the solution in the material that iDecking calls SKUDO, at the sight FAKE and PLASTIC but guaranteed not to discolor or stain (present in the iDecking Revolution materials offer). duroipe

Finally, DURO is chosen by those who love the idea and the feeling of TRUE and NATURAL (both at sight and by touch) without being tied to the required aesthetic and structural maintenance needed for any wood. But there is more to make DURO or DURO EXCELLENCE a decking to prefer over other outdoor floors, namely: iDecking patented INSTALLATION SYSTEMS.

These are two technologies that have simplified and strengthened the installation of every iDecking outdoor floor for years, be it DURO, SKUDO or Etherno Bamboo. Let's talk about the EasyClick and EasyChange systems, discover the features together.

EasyClick is the innovative system which allows you to install iDecking Revolution boards simply using your feet. No need to use any nails, screws, drills, spacers or “obsolete” clips. The EasyClick system helps ensure a quick and simple troublefree installation. EasyClick is essentially comprised of an understructure “rail system” which comes with pre-installed and pre-spaced patented EasyClick nylon clips. Our patented grooved decking boards are then simply pressed and locked in place. The system can be used both for Wood and for Composites such as DURO and ETHERNO (Carbonized Bamboo).

Removable Decking System, how to make the right choice!

doga boards EN You need your decking boards to be removable? This guide can help you...

In the last few years the decking market has grown up with various offers regarding patented fixing systems with the intention of revolutionizing the world of traditional decking and cladding laying. But did they all succeed? Not really ... and for this reason it is very important to know how to differentiate what is valid for those who sell from what is valid for those who buy (because it really works).

By reading this blog you will in fact be able to:

  1. Understand the evaluation elements before buying a removable decking or cladding clip system
  2. Find out which are the best clip fastening systems and why!

The possibility of proposing a clip that makes each plank of the floor replaceable is a topic that has always interested companies, professionals and end customers. But there are very specific characteristics to evaluate a good system from a “fake".

Removable Decking systems with screw clip

Here we have to lose a bit of time, given that when we talk about removable clips that mount like the traditional ones but that thanks to flaps or similar systems make it possible to remove each plank quickly and easily, we risk falling into deception. Often we use a quality to throw confusion over fragility ... and at the cost of repeating it until exhaustion, the number one FRAGILITY of any clip is only one: THE SCREWS!

Avoid any clip fixing system that needs to unscrew a screw to remove the decking boards! Let's see why. Where are we screwing these screws, on which type of sub-structure?

  1. Wood: If I screw my removable clips onto a wooden structure I have to pray that I never need to remove the decking boards. Why? The screw that must be removed and then put back in the same hole will not have the same holding strength! So let's say that this is an area that we have to inspect several times during the season ... after the third / fourth time the screw will end up with no more grip, making the clip totally inefficient ... so it will be necessary to remove a much wider part of the floor and replace the substructure as that screw hole is no longer usable.
  2. Composite: If we screw our clip on a composite substructure, even if we want to use stainless steel screws, not only would we have the same scenario expressed above but we would also have to deal with the expansion of the plastic material! What happens? The displacement can even cause the screw to break, making the clip no longer usable (the same thing can also happen for the movements of a wooden substructure, depending on the essence used).

Assuming that everything you have just read is tolerable there is one last thing to consider ... every time you unscrew and re-screw the screw to extract a plank, the drill will not fail to ruin the sides of the boards on the side! It will only be a matter of time, and the floor sold as removable will begin to remove itself spontaneously!!!

Does a CLIP exist to be screwed that avoids and solves the problems mentioned above? OF COURSE!

b iDecking iFly decking clip iDeck 331845 rel34a66843

Solving this problem with a screw-in clip is easy! Just choose a type of clip that normally screws to any substructure like the traditional ones, BUT TO REMOVE INDIVIDUAL BOARDS IT DOES NOT NEED TO UNSCREW ANY SCREW! This type of clip exists, it is called iFly and allows the removal of each plank through a simple turn of the supplied key. What makes this clip immune to the problems mentioned above is the fact that once screwed in, the screws no longer touch each other! Let's see it together in a REAL video:

iDecking Revolution, a leading Italian company in the world for having patented the best innovation systems for outdoor floor mounting, even has a screw-free removable system! The technology, which is then the same integrated in the iFly clip, is called EasyChange, let's see it together:
