8 steps to construct outdoor plastic wooden slats

To Construction of outdoor plastic wood bar standard, please take a look at the step-by-step instructions from the total warehouse of wood plastic Kosmos Vietnam. With more than 10 years of experience in the field of supplying decorative materials, Kosmos warehouse will convey information that is easy to understand and easy to install.

Outdoor plastic wooden slats are a bar-shaped product with a hollow core for inserting stainless steel/galvanized iron bars. Because they are made from plastic wood (WPC), they are highly durable when installed in outdoor spaces, without worrying about termites or moisture.

The 2021 study published in the Journal of Civil Engineering (ScienceDirect) evaluated the mechanical properties of WPC under a variety of environmental conditions. Research indicates that WPC has low moisture content, relatively low swelling and water absorption, making the material suitable for applications in both indoor and outdoor environments.

To install plastic wooden slats on the wall, we need to follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Prepare tools and construction materials.
  • Step 2: Install the frame using stainless steel bars/galvanized iron bars on the wall (distance between bars ≤500mm).
  • Step 3: Insert the galvanized iron bar into the core of the plastic wooden bar.
  • Step 4: Cover the two ends of the plastic wooden bar
  • Step 5: Fix the bar onto the frame with stainless steel screws and screws

Based on the measurements on the drawing, we will measure and cut the bar, galvanized iron bar according to the size needed.

B2 Install the skeleton on the wall

Please use a laser meter to accurately mark the position where the skeleton needs to be installed. The distance between the bone bars is not more than 500mm (50cm).

We have to align the bone bar evenly, straight and flat with a laser meter, and then fix the two ends of the bar to the wall with U-shaped stainless steel plate and bolts. Specifically, we will use a drill to transplant into the concrete wall. Next, we will fasten the bolt to the stainless steel bowl and tighten it.

Depending on the project, you will choose for yourself the most suitable type of stainless steel pot. In addition, you should use specialized iron expansion bolts to ensure that the structure of the building is kept stable throughout the years of use.

In addition, to make the work more solid, you can weld stainless steel to the skeleton (welds must be flat and smooth).

B3 Thread the galvanized iron bar into the core of the plastic wood bar

We insert the galvanized iron bar inside wood-plastic bar to increase the durability and hardness of the project. Both will be tightly fixed together with stainless steel screws. However, in this project, the bar will be attached to the through frame keel L. Therefore, you can perform this stainless steel screw shooting operation through the screw.

Note: The position of the L-kick must correspond to the skeleton on the wall.

B4 Cover the 2 ends of the plastic wooden bar

To improve the aesthetics and prevent dirt and insects from entering the core of the bar, please seal the 2 ends of the bar with a lid or stick the plastic wood piece with glue manually.

Instructions for manually covering the bar end
  • Step 1: Insert a small piece of pine wood into the top of the cage and nail it in place.
  • B2: Cut a piece of plastic wood from the bar itself to cover the top, secure with nails and iron glue.
  • Step 3: Apply sawdust to the crevice (where the glue is) and then sand.
