Designing & Building Your New Deck

When designing your new deck, or renovating an existing structure, plan on finishing your project with Rhino Deck. Use standard wood posts and joist runners when constructing the frame, then finish the project with Rhino Deck boards, spindles and posts. Remember, Rhino Deck is only designed for use as a deck board.
 
Installation Temperature and Board Gapping

Please refer to our latest installation guide.
 
Fastening

Please refer to our latest installation guide.
 
Cutting Tools

Carbide tipped tools are recommended.
 
Weathering

Rhino Deck will exhibit some natural, desirable color variation; and fading.  Deck areas that have different exposures to the elements, for example, under an overhang or a table would have less exposure, therefore, will show less weathering to neighboring boards. 
 
Safety Information

As when doing any home improvement project, all safety precautions must be taken when handling materials and tools, including, but not limited to, the use of eye protection, gloves, safety guards on saws, and all power tools. Also, a safe work environment should be maintained which includes children and pets being absent from the construction area.  Notching posts does not meet building codes, voids all warranties and will result in an unsafe railing.
 
Handling Information

Rhino Deck acts very much the same as wood. Being heavier in weight, use the same precautions you would when handling natural materials. Store for long periods of time flat, with support every 2 feet. Do not attempt to lift similar volumes of Rhino Deck board as if it were wood.

Recycled Product

Master Mark Plastics is the manufacturer of Rhino Deck located in beautiful central Minnesota. Master Mark is recognized as one of the top HDPE recyclers in the country. Master Mark recycles upward of 35 million pounds of recycled HDPE plastic annually, keeping thousands of tons of plastic out of landfills every year. 
 
Recycled material is important. Rhino Deck uses approximately 50% recycled wood and 50% recycled plastic. The recycled wood is from recovered shipping pallets and scrap wood from cabinet making operations. The HDPE plastic is from recovered post consumer bottles. These ingredients are then blended with colorant and U.V. stabilizers to make Rhino Deck, the toughest and longest lasting decking material for your building projects.
