Joist tape essentially provides users with more peace of mind as it is designed to enhance the longevity and performance of timber subframes. Manufactured in the UK – the product is designed to protect timber deck substructures by providing a completely waterproof seal on the surface of the timber joist. Without this, exposure to the elements can result in significant deck frame weathering – and will eventually result in a rotting timber joist.
The most common area for this damage to occur is where the deck boards come in contact with the deck substructure. With a permanent adhesive bond for 50-years and a 25–year guarantee, this massively adds to the life of your deck frame as it seals the joist where it is most vulnerable. What’s more, the decking joist tape has been tested with all timber treatments, so you can rest easy that the application will be hassle-free and simple.
NeoTimber® decking joist tape is a non-butyl tape. Non-butyl tapes are particularly suitable for this application as they are completely UV stable and keep their integrity for longer. This means that they have many advantages over both butyl and asphalt tapes. In addition to this, it is stable from -40C to +93C with no cracking, peeling, or strength loss.
