Decking Steps on a spiral staircase

Awkward in shape, awkward in dimension and awkward to install, all taken in the careful hands of Gary Griffiths. Each step tread required an exact cut out of decking board. This is then reversed fixed in the steel plate of the metal work.

Gary said, “Sometimes these small projects with that special or complicated detail gives me the most satisfaction”.

The foot plate thickness was calculated to accept the 32mm thickness of the decking board as well as the vertical balusters. The whole series of measurements has almost no tolerance and had to fit exactly… and they did.

Simply balcony with clever design

By using the maximum from each board Gary was able to create a repeating pattern in this decking arrangement. Simple, effective and worked with the dimensions of the project and also the board.

The finish which followed the foot plate of the door threshold was a tiny detail often missed on terraces. No trip hazards here and a smooth transition from inside to out, all at one level.

Millboard was the answer due to the 32mm thickness and board length. The performance and durability was also a factor. Millboard offer sensible warranties for the decking products, up to 25 years for domestic applications.
