Long Life Decking
In this three-year research project, Holzforschung Austria develops care and maintenance concepts to extend the usability and to improve the appearance of coated and uncoated wooden deckings. This involves both the preservation of newly installed deckings and the refresh of already heavily weathered timber plankings. An essential aspect is the removal of biofilm, which has an influence on the sliding properties. Regarding the correct construction, the development of durable substructures by defining the required height and ventilation is the focus of the project work.
