Exterpark Magnet decking is a screwless decking system and when coupled with Accoya® wood you have a synergy of materials at the highest end of the decking spectrum.

The Architect working on a TV show for Channel 4 called ‘Ugly House to Lovely House’ had created a state of the art concept terrace to the rear of the property, glass, stainless and with a substantial cantilever. The original cost for the concept exceeded the budget for the whole project and with the decking being an important part of the project they needed a cost reducing solution.

George Clarke said “I think we need a decking expert” so Karl Harrison was asked to provide a solution. “No compromise needed here”, a phrase often used by Karl when phased with similar projects.

Exterpark Magnet decking was certainly the best choice for this decking project because the client didn’t want to see any screws and the Magnet fixing system doesn’t use any screws. The magnet tracks made from aluminium are simply laid over the timber structure and tacked into place, this process took less than a day. The Accoya® decking had been profiled to receive the clips which take seconds to fit as do the decking boards… the boards can then be removed, in seconds, for access should this be required.

Exterpark Magnet is available in a number of high quality certified hardwoods, Accoya®, Kebony®, Teak, Ipe and Iroko. These products in the Magnet System is often used for cladding too. It is an adaptable system and one that is rapidly becoming the “GO-TO” decking system across Europe and now in the UK. It is also available in a range of composite options.

One of the better choices for the decking material is Accoya® which is a modified timber and due to the patented acetylation process is warranted against rotting for a minimum of 50 Years. A sound option which can conform to the NHBC 60 year Deck code of Practice

Natural Accoya® decking is a light blond colour and can easily be oiled or painted over to enhance the colour. In this instance, Karl chose a beautiful light Grey colour. Owatrol manufacture marine grade timber oil and paints and have a wide range of colours, the choice of grey decking paints is extensive. Warranted for 5 years against peeling and fading once correctly applied to the decking, it will look great for years with almost no maintenance.
