Decking for roof terraces and green roofs in Singapore

iDecking revolution is the ideal solution!

Decking is become more and more common among the best landscape architects projecting roof terraces or green roofs! It’s not a big surprise, since decking always add a touch of class and fashion look to any ambient where projected (roof, garden, swimming pool). Said so is vital to take in consideration the main difficulties that any deck can encounter when it’s about to be installed under Singapore tropical weather laws! Making the wrong choice can easily turn the dream into a nightmare.

iDecking Revolution is the italian designed worldwide project who greatly won the challenge and optimized two powerful and innovative decking systems for the country of Singapore. The company has now a Singapore headquarter and has already delivered many experiences of success and happiness for their Singapore references.

Let’s have a closer look to what the company offers and why it’s the best solution to your decking needing.

EasyClick is the innovative system which allows you to install iDecking Revolution boards simply using your feet. No need to use any nails, screws, drills, spacers or “obsolete” clips. The EasyClick system helps ensure a quick and simple troublefree installation. EasyClick is essentially comprised of an understructure “rail system” which comes with pre-installed and pre-spaced patented EasyClick nylon clips. Our patented grooved decking boards are then simply pressed and locked in place. The system can be used both for Wood and for Composites such as DURO, SKUDO and ETHERNO (Carbonized Bamboo).

  • Decking installation up to 5 times faster than traditional deck building
  • Boards require Zero screws, nails or other fasteners
  • Drastic reduction of installation errors
  • “Effortless” installation
  • Doesn’t cause water stagnation
  • Increased structural integrity and strength
  • Self blocking and Self aligning system

 Just to give you an example on How Fast the EasyClick system is, compared to traditional ones:

Then if you have any doubt on the strength of the EasyClick clip compared to any screwed clip… here’s a little video that says it all:

To conclude the point, it’s clear that iDecking installation systems are perfectly optimized to achieve the best budget optimization for any kind of green roof or terrace project in Singapore. iDecking in fact gives major and unique benefits to the whole chain, from the buyer to the user, and here they are:

  • Systems instead of a single product: iDecking systems are engineered to work together and supported by test reports and project references, while most of the companies only sell decking boards / planks leaving the customer without any knowledge of what kind of structure and clips will be used for the installation. Highly increasing the risk of structural failures
  • Ability to replace the plank: as we said, Singapore is a tropical country and there’s common concern about pests and insects under the decking. iDecking EasyChange is 100% inspectable and you can remove/replace any plank from anywhere in the deck !
  • Reduction of installation errors: Vast majority of labour forse in the Singapore construction industry are foreign workers. They are not trained and masters of deck building, so exposed to fatal errors when installing. The iDecking systems structures come with the clips pre installed in order to drastically reduce the chance of errors!

Beauty and look of innovative materials

iDecking Singapore offers three different materials for Green roofs and terraces! Each of them has its own unique characteristic according to the client’s need and taste, the most important thing is that they’re all suitable for Singapore weather:

DURO: available in many colors, DURO is an extremely innovative composite developed to be the one and only alternative to real noble wood. Duro is made of RICE HUSK (skin of the rice grain) and PVC (not recycled). Yes, you got it right... RICE HUSK, a by product that would be otherwise burnt and create CO2 is given a much more noble second life into decking boards with incredible structural performances. It has to be compared to a noble wood other than common composites. Rice grows into water, and the skin of the rice protects the grain till the moment it’s ready to blossom! NATURAL HYDRO REPELLENCY, in fact it is only the micro surface to absorb. Duro is Anti-Slip certified, an EcoFriendly material ideal for places like swimming pools and wherever the situation needs a natural look and feeling with all the benefits of a stable product.

Etherno Bamboo: Bamboo grows much faster than any tree and is among the most prolific resources on earth. Through a specialized process of compression and thermo treatment, ETHERNO provides strength, stability and durability. Etherno Bamboo is particularly ideal for any area where high volume of people is expected. Its Dark color would perfectly blend in any Park (can be national park or a park in a resort / private house).

SKUDO: the brand new ultra resistant shield decking that can be installed with the new EasyClick and EasyChange Technology. This new composite decking has a realistic embossed wood grain finishing on each board surface! It’s not just about fashion and look (which is always important), the SKUDO boards are protected by an ultra resistant shield all around giving the decking the most searched and aimed characteristics for this kind of product: anti-stain / easy to clean, no splintering, low maintenance.

Long lasting and low mainenance

Always remember that once bought, the decking must be serving your needing and NOT THE CONTRARY. So first of all, any architect / committee / maincon should be informed on products whose maintenance is the lower possible. There are two kind of maintenance: Aesthetic maintenance and Structural maintenance. The first one is almost ok for every product, since it only affects the look and it’s just about regular cleaning and, in case of wood or certain valuable composites, lay a coat of transparent treatment once per season in order to maintain a vivid color. The structural maintenance instead can bring BIG TROUBLES in the case of choosing the wrong product. For example, any deck installed with screws or screwed clips can result in boards elevation and in consequence: 1 - be dangerous for people and kids who’d risk to fall. 2 - force to do structural maintenance which means putting down new screws every time the installed one loose their strength (which under Singapore’s tropical weather can happen more than twice per year). So, the most important thing would be opting for a decking whose boards don’t need screws to be installed on the substructure.
