Slip Resistant

Shepley is pleased to offer this premium decking product to our customers. As is common with most high-end materials, there are specific guidelines required in handling the product. We will ship the manufacturers Installation Guidelines with every Zuri deck purchase and strongly recommend you follow the suggestions.

Included in these Guidelines are storage and handling recommendations. Although Zuri has been developed with Trivance™ Technology and has durable, low maintenance features, special care is requested when handling these boards to minimize scuffs, nicks and to preserve the beauty of the finish. Think of this product as a prefinished wood in perspective to handling.

Zuri arrives properly packaged from the manufacturer and should be stored and
transported in this packaging until installation. The packaging also includes the arranging of the grain patterns to ensure pattern variation during the install, so the installer should work from one unit at a time and remove boards as illustrated in the Installation Guidelines.

Zuri has been created to have a finish comparable to that of interior hardwood flooring, therefore, special attention is required when cutting and working with this product. You should work with Zuri the way you would any pre-finished material.

Suggested framing, fastening and installation progression instructions are also detailed in the Installation Guidelines. Zuri Decking has similar behavior to wood and composite decking; therefore, similar installation techniques should be used. In order to avoid improper installation, additional techniques, recommendations and guidelines are provided by Royal Building Products. Following the instructions, while using the same good building principals used in wood and composite decking installation, will result in a correct Zuri Decking installation!

Based on feedback from our contractors that have worked with Zuri, Shepley has added the following adhesives and accessories to our inventory:

PVC cement—used to bond miter corners, never glue butt joints.
FastCap – also used on the miter joint as a clamp while the Oatey cement dries. (The FastCap is also a great product for installing mouldings)
Edge Band
End Sealer
Fasteners (Camo Screws and Camo Gun are recommended)

Please contact your Shepley salesperson with any questions or concerns about Zuri products. We are fortunate to have great vendor support from Mark Shay and David Ripley, from Royal Building Products. They are both willing and available to assist with projects to ensure proper installation so you have many years of enjoyment on your premium Zuri deck!
