SAiGE’s Longlife Composite Decking is a low maintenance, durable alternative to timber decking that is child friendly and ideal for families.
SAiGE Rustic Decking boards are ideal for commercial and residential projects alike for people who are looking for a composite solution but with a more traditional look. With all the advantages of composite decking (including low maintenance, anti-slip, long life and splinter free) these solid decking boards have a more wood-like weathered effect and are available in a choice of Rustic Walnut & Rustic Grey. The reverse of the boards have our standard mid-grooved grooved finish which can also be used. As with our standard commercial range the Rustic Decking range is easy to install with stainless steel colour coded screws. This also means that if you need to ever remove a board for access or replace a board the screws are easily located and the board can be easily removed and replaced.

Storage and installation
- Storage: SAiGE Longlife decking is generally denser than natural wood. On site, it must be stored on a flat surface and must be supported by centres at 60cm intervals. Storing on uneven surface might cause the boards to twist. The decking should be covered for long term storage.
- Tools: No specialist tools are required but for the best results, we recommend using circular saw blades with few teeth (e.g. 8-24, on a 45 cm blade).
- Decking foundations: Please consult your structural engineer for design specifications for an appropriate sub-floor for your structure. Make sure the foundation is flat and stable in order to avoid deformation and dents in the surface and of the terrace. Always maintain the indicated mounting distance. Make sure that all joists are level and centred. The decking must span at least three joists.
