Decking Accessories

When installing the deck surface, focus on these 3 aspects.

1. How wide of a row gap do you accept? Most hidden fastener produce a gap of between 3/16” to 1/4”, with 3/16” as the ideal.  However, the narrower the gap, the more difficult it is when replacing a board.  Replacing a board in the middle of the deck becomes a reinstallation job where you usually need to uninstall a huge section of the deck. Hence, our recommendation is the Panda Claws (ADK-PCw-100) by Eisen which produces the optimal gap of 3/16” (4.7mm) .  And the Panda claw has an advantage of clawing on to the groove and no falling off while installing the plank, making installation an easy and speedy task.  The alternative Panda Grip (ADK-PG-100) produces a gap that is approximately 5/32" (4mm) between planks which is desirable.  However, in this fastener, the screw is located below the decking plank, making replacing a plank almost impossible without uninstalling a huge section of the deck.

2. Do you want to protect the wood ledger and joist with ledger tape and joist tape?  Is it usually worthwhile to do so to avoid premature rotting of deck structure due to water getting into the wood structure through the screws.

3.  Use face screw to install 2x6 deck plank.  If you mind screw head exposing on the surface, then drill, countersink, screw and plug with the Eisen Plug kit.  Otherwise, just use coated head screw and leave it exposed.  The #10, 3-1/2” (ADK-FHC10-XX-100) screw is usually sufficient for standard industrial commercial project.  For ocean front and extreme weathered area with strong winds and ocean waves, switch to #10, 4-1/2” screw for extra holding strength.  You could also use coated head screw on 1x6 deck planks.  We offer the  410 Stainless Steel #7 x 1-5/8" Self-Tapping Deck Screws (ADK-DWMS-XX)

RainClad Siding Accessories

Here are few basic steps to determine which RainClad fastener to use.

1.  Decide how thick of an air-gap you prefer for heat buffer. Use Batten clip (ASD-RC1B-W-100) for ¼” air-gap and use Sheathing clip (ASD-RC1S-W-100) for ¾” air-gap. Most residential project chooses to have ¼” air-gap which is sufficient in most situation.  You can choose to have ¾’ air-gap if the wall is constantly baked under the sun.

2.  Check if your current sheathing wall is sufficiently strong to support the RainClad Siding.  For best practice, always attach fastener to wall stud through the sheathing panel.  In situation when your sheathing wall is solidly strong, you can attach batten/sheathing clips directly to the sheathing wall and span 24” center to center. However, if your local building code required batten strips on the sheathing wall before fastener can be attached to it, use ½” batten strips and batten clips to form a ¾” air-gap.

3.  A single screw hole fastener is sufficient in most situation on a residential project not higher than 3 storey (30 feet). Use 3 holes fastener with 2 screws for 3rd storey (30 feet) or higher.  For batten option, use 2 fastener in place of one. 

4.  Use the correct type of screw and screw length for your project.

5.  Follow your local city/council code if one existed in your area.  The information published here are some general guidelines to install Shiplap RainClad Siding, dassoXTR is not responsible on the choices you made for your project.

Exterior Finishes, Cleaners and Sealers

Make sure to follow the finish brand manufacturer’s application instructions. If you choose to apply a coat of a synthetic oil we suggest not finishing the dassoXTR Bamboo right after installation. Like other “smooth wood” hardwood products, with synthetic oil finishes we recommend installing XTR and let it weather for approximately 1-6 months, then, follow the application directions of the finish brand you select – including what they suggest as to how soon after the installation to apply their product.

After the synthetic oil’s initial waiting period, or when following either type finishes’ maintenance application schedule they may also suggest using their brand’s cleaner and a wood brightener to remove the dirt, UV graying, and in the case of a penetrating oil, opening up the pores for better penetration. Remember to let XTR bamboo, just like wood, dry for a few days after the cleaning.

dassoXTR fused bamboo Decking, Decking Tiles, Porch Flooring, and Siding is Pre-Primed so there is no need to finish all 4 sides when you might traditionally consider this a good additional step. Decks and porches that have very little ventilation should have finish on all four sides of the deck boards prior to installation to ensure equal moisture content on all sides of the boards and help to stabilize the material after installation.

If you have already applied a cross cut sealer (like Anchorseal 2) to cut board ends remember not to apply oil or finish to these ends as the crosscut sealer prevents the oil from penetrating and the finish from bonding.

Synthetic and Synthetic Polymer Finishes

Synthetic finishes dry by an evaporation or a curing process and creates a coat or “film” on the board that it’s applied to. It is often a synthetic polymer resin base dissolved, referred to as "carried”, in either a solvent/volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or water/Non-VOC, and can have added pigment for colors and additives for various properties. This type of finish protects the bamboo/wood by creating a film on the surface and is therefore considered more durable than Penetrating Oil Finishes when applied properly. As it creates a film on the surface, this allows pigments to sit on top of the surface and thus synthetic finishes are better at staining – changing of the existing color.

The key to applying any finish is to follow the finish manufacturer’s recommendations and directions.


Penetrating Oil Finishes

Penetrating Oil is among the oldest of finishes. It is basically a natural oil – often linseed oil - with mixture of synthetics resin and diluents/carriers and additives added into it. As the term penetrating oil denotes, it protects natural bamboo/wood fibers by penetrating into the natural fiber. Most penetrating oils also contain additives for various benefits, like: preventing fungus and microbial growth or inhibiting UV light from changing the color of the bamboo.

Penetrating Oil finishes should not be used over sealers, cross cut sealers, or fillers as these products prevent penetrating oil from “penetrating”. Note, Oil finishes do not “build up” to fill the open-grain in bamboo/wood, and letting them weather a bit allows the fibers to open up and accept a deeper application of penetrating oil.

The key to applying a penetrating oil finish to dassoXTR bamboo is to follow the finish manufacturer’s recommendations and directions.
