Deck Planking
« on: September 05, 2018, 02:06:09 PM »

Where do people get their deck planks from and what is the quality like? To put this into perspective I'm looking for 1/8" x 1/16" or 1mm x 3mm.


Also light in colour so spruce and/or lime may be ideal. I will also need a lot of it (1m lengths in the region of 160).


Thanks

Geoff,

I have always used Mantua Models for deck planking.  Good quality and consistent.

This is their 1x3x1000mm lime strip.

Suggest you call as they have numerous wood types, sizes and thicknesses.  They are only 1/2 mile from me so I am in there all the time.  It is usually cheaper to buy in quantity packs.  Walnut looks nice.
