Always round up the square meter coverage to the next kit size so you do not run out especially when tendering on jobs.
When the boards are pulled tight, the gap setting is 4mm – however if the deck is close to ground or timber is going to expand then simply insert a packer on top of the biscuit as you are clamping – simply cut a piece of ply into small block of say 5mm or 6mm thickness, this will provide expansion and contraction for the decking. When assembling you can leave them in or take them out as you go – I often leave some in to keep the gap setting consistent especially when a board you have purchased is bowed and will want to close up when the gap is wider than 3mm.
If the boards are bowed too much insert wood plug and screw to hold that board so it does not want to move – retaining a concealed fix.
Always use the Deck-Max clamps to maintain the set gap and allows to settle all joints correctly and tight.
