Decking boards made of the innovative wood-plastic mixture WPC have an unmistakable grain pattern. They look and feel like grown wood. The abbreviation WPC stands for Wood Plastic Composites. These are intelligently processed composite materials that are composed of up to 70% wood fibres. Thermoplastics and other additives make up another 30 percent. WPC decking brings with it the advantages of a high-quality wood-plastic composite, such as the material's malleability and high resistance to moisture. A WPC deck is crack- and splinter-free and therefore very barefoot-friendly. The elegant planks are weatherproof and, unlike wooden planks, are resistant to insects, fungi and moss. In addition, the WPC planks are easy to clean - water and a soft brush are usually enough.
planeo WPC terrace plank - Amato is a popular plank that creates a relaxed leisure atmosphere on numerous terraces and balconies. In 2017, the solid plank received a general building authority approval (No. Z-10.9-484). This is the first time that the German Institute for Building Technology in Berlin (DIBt) has granted approval to a decking board made of a wood composite material. approval for the first time for a decking board made of a composite wood material without referring to a decking laid in a bond. This means that the plank can be installed as a load-bearing floor in outdoor areas without any restrictions - even in public buildings. This means a great deal of planning security for you and expands the areas of application to include balconies, roof terraces, loggias, stairs and stair landings without the need for additional measures for fall-through protection. The installation must be carried out in accordance with the approval regulation!

First, determine the total construction height of the WPC composite decking boards to be installed. The terrace construction consists of the substructure (chippings, weed fleece, lawn edges) and the terrace construction (terrace pad, substructure, WPC plank). Check whether existing edges of the old terrace can be used for the necessary height. Tighten cords to be able to measure the heights. Also take into account the slope of 2% away from the house.
Spread chippings on the compacted gravel roughly with a wheelbarrow and shovel. Level the surface with a spirit level on two long metal rods embedded in the chippings. Check the required construction height and slope with at least two taut strings. Start in one corner and work the entire surface in rows.
First roll out a sheet of weed mat starting from the outer edge. Lay the curbs on the weed fleece with a distance of 2 cm to the edge of the patio. Then lay the lawn edges on top. Please note that the distance between the lawn edges should be approx. 30-40 cm.
Tip: A homemade template can serve as a spacer and make it easier to lay the subsequent lawn edges on the fleece.
Before laying the substructure, it is imperative to follow the official laying instructions that are included in every package, otherwise any claim under warranty and guarantee will be invalidated!
The WPC substructure requires 2 cm edge distance in all directions. The parallel distances of the substructure should be between 30-40 cm. Mark the exact positions with a chalk line. Lay out the substructure on the composite decking pads and make sure that the substructures are not laid butt to butt, but at least 2 cm apart. All ends in the outdoor area and each end of a substructure should now be doweled. The joints of the substructures are fixed with small section bridges. Reinforce the planned joints of the WPC composite decking boards with additional substructures so that the ends do not hang more than 5 cm freely in the air. Now stick the supplied spacer tape onto each substructure.
Mark all the planned lamp positions before you start laying the boards. Unroll the 12V cabling completely along the markings. Leave the cable ends freely accessible and cover unused cable ends with caps. Then install the lamps completely and at the same time as laying the floorboards. To do this, drill the appropriate holes and bring the connectors into contact with the laid-out cable. Finally, clamp the cable to the transformer and position it in the floor tank or near a socket. Use a safebox if the socket is in the ground.
Tip: Check the function of the lamps immediately after the installation.
Screw the starting clips onto each substructure with a distance of 2 cm to the wall. Lay the composite decking boards against them and shorten them if necessary. Then position the centre clip, pre-drill and fix the composite decking boards to each substructure with the stainless steel screws provided. Refer to the installation guide for the correct spacing at the head joints. Cut the last row of WPC boards lengthwise with a circular saw. Finally, pre-drill the plank and fix it with a screw.
