Use of the SPAX board straightener box

The board spacer

When laying a wooden deck, board spacers are not limited to the aesthetics and beauty of the deck. These parts make it possible to respect the correct installation conditions, which is for your terrace the guarantee of perfect solidity and a good lifespan.

Description and use

Spacers or plank spacers are tools that offer significant comfort when laying your terrace and make it much simpler. Their function is to allow you to provide the necessary spacing between the boards and to maintain an equal measurement throughout the installation of your terrace. These tools allow you to optimize the play and the spacing between your different boards in a simple way. This allows you to obtain regular spacing when assembling your terrace. These kinds of plastic crosses are very resistant and have wings of different sizes. They fit very easily between your different wooden deck boards.

The need to have a consistent spacing between the boards is justified by the need to leave a good circulation of air and water between them. This question is important, because if there is a lack of ventilation, your wooden boards can deteriorate and even rot very quickly. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the quality of the wood you use to provide the necessary spacing. Natural wood and composite wood react in different ways. The first gains in width, while composite wood tends to expand in length.

What is the correct spacing between the boards?

It is essential to consider certain factors when laying your wooden deck. Thus, during the dry and wetter seasons, the wood of your terrace can contract or, on the contrary, undergo swelling. It is necessary to take into account these possible variations in volume so as not to create exaggerated gaps between the different boards, or on the contrary not to leave too few spaces. The spacing of your boards thus depends on the humidity of the latter, their width and the balance of the place where your terrace is located. It is estimated that a reasonable spacing is between the minimum of 3 mm and the maximum of 12 mm for laying decking.

For example, for very humid wood, there could be a shrinkage of the boards in summer and attains 2 mm. It is therefore recommended to place a board spacer of about 4 mm to monitor the future gap between the boards. This precaution makes it possible to reduce the effect of the extremes of the climate to respect the maximum spacing of 12 mm. On the other hand, for very dry wood laid over 12 cm, the expansion can go up to 3 mm. A spacer of about 6 mm will allow to maintain a gap between the boards greater than 3 mm when the wood takes on volume in the wet season.

The board straightener

Wood board spacers are not the only accessories that make your wood board deck assembly easier. Wood is a living material that can change shape depending on various parameters.

The board straightener, on the other hand, is used to press your board against the board spacers for a straight installation. Its usefulness is to facilitate the straightening of decking boards. Its advantage is to free the hands of the person installing for greater ease of installation. The instrument can be placed on the right or on the left of the joists. They therefore allow you to straighten your wood without great effort for a satisfactory final result. It is enough to exert pressure on the handle to obtain a very appreciable force on the edges of the board . The straightener also guarantees a final rendering full of aesthetics.

Like many accessories, this set helps you quickly realize your dream without having to ask your neighbor or a professional deck laying helper. In addition, it is not necessary to be particularly knowledgeable or to be an experienced handyman to handle these effective tools in the right way. Put on this kit, get started, and build your solid, regular and beautiful wooden board terrace.
