Everything about: Decking Joists and Bearers

Joists and bearers in treated class IV pine

The bearers and joists are crucial elements in ensuring the success of your decking.

Laying decking on a solid base Laying decking on post

It is important to choose the right materials based on which of the following two cases applies:
Laying decking on a solid base: use bearers that are securely fixed to the base using screws and concrete plugs.
Laying decking on post: use joists, which are stronger than bearers and rest on the posts (allow one post for every 80cm length maximum).

In certain cases it is possible to lay the bearers on a structure made with joists. This could be used for a raised construction on stilts for example.

To ensure a solid base for your decking, allow 3 metres in length of bearers for each square metre, approximately one bearer every 30 to 35cm.

Fix your decking planks to the bearers using stainless steel screws, taking care to pre drill the planks( this will avoid splitting).
