The spacing of base prisms is 40 cm is recommended for boards in size 26x140 mm. This spacing is used for normal trafic and load of about 100 kg between grids.

Keep terrace boards without fallen leaves, pine needles and other debris that can hold water and moisture, thus allow adequate drying wood. Between individual boards to create during installation gap of about 5 mm.

Moisture and dirt can form in places butt ends of boards connected to the underlying prisms. Create a trailing gap in width of about 3 mm between the ends of the boards connected in length. Places podkládejte double grate with a space separated by about 9 cm for the possibility of runoff water and drying options. From time to time, move the pots, benches and other accessories of your patio that you allow sufficient drying of wood under these points.

Under objects such as umbrellas stands, flower pots, bowls, mats, under which settles water and moisture, there is no possibility of a quick and natural drying wood. Under these objects can cause stains from long-term moisture and dirt. Therefore, these subjects standing on the terrace from time to time carry or ensure that underneath there was a natural drying and ventilation. This helps to avoid dark spots on the wood.
