EasyChange is an alternative to fit Duro Excellence composite decking and allowing boards to be removed at any point in the future. The system is comprehensive boards-and-fixings design so no separate fixings are needed. No piercing of the upper surface of the boards mean no splinters. Extruded 25 mm thick by 140 mm wide Duro Excellence composite decking boards. Duro Excellence is a compound made from recycled rice husks & PVC with no wood content, designed to be mildew, insect and moisture resistant. Fire rating Euroclass B. Slip resistant and fully recyclable. Rice husk is a waste product which is usually burnt, so CO2 savings are achieved by reusing it as a decking product.

The boards are extruded with special ridges on the sides to fit into special mobile clips which are pre-fitted onto aluminium rails. The iDeck EasyChange fixing clips are manufactured from nylon and carry worldwide design patents. The boards are installed between the clips perpendicular to the rails and the clips are turned using the special EasyKey to lock the boards in place. There is a 6 mm gap between each board once installed. Each board can be removed by turning the EasyKey along the length of the board, releasing it and future-proofing the deck beneath for any inspection or maintenance. No screws pass through the upper surface of the boards mean no splinters and no risk of screws working loose over time through movement. No risk of clips coming away due to expansion movement. Special end clips can be installed at the end of runs to secure the edge of the final deck board.

Framing profile can be heated and bent to shape for curves. iJack fittings maintain consistent joint between each deckboard so boards do not touch and lift. Boards expand in unison and gaps stay consistent and boards will not “travel”, expand and contract in the same direction causing instability.

EasyChange also available in tropical hardwood including ipe, thermo ash, teak and thermo bamboo. EasyChange can be used for cladding as well as decking and is ideal for covering areas such drains, electrical cables or service hatches.
