Arbor Wood Ash Deck Boards - Hidden Fastener

From $6.49

This product is natural, biodegradable, and free of plastics and chemicals

Board Profile

Arbor Wood deck boards are an eco-conscious, thermally modified wood deck board product.

Thermally modified wood is real wood, not treated with toxic chemicals or made from plastic.  It's significantly less prone to water absorption, expansion/contraction, and rot or decay than traditional lumber alone.  This makes it very suitable for outdoor applications and allows it to have a long service life.

Thermally modified wood from Arbor Wood is a more sustainable option than composite plastic, pressure-treated, or exotic hardwood deck boards, and is the best option if you are looking for a beautiful, durable, and natural decking material.

The hidden fastener system provides a smooth, unobstructed look on the surface of the boards by using a grooved board profile and a hidden clip system as recommended specifically for the Arbor Wood product, known as the DeckWise® Ipe Clip® ExtemeKD® hidden fastener system.

Measuring instructions

To calculate order size in Linear Foot:

Linear Foot = (estimated deck square footage) * (10% overage) * (scaling factor)

For 5.5" deck boards, scaling factor is 2.18
For 3.5" deck boards, scaling factory is 3.45
Rough deck dimensions 21.5' x 16'
Using 5.5" deck boards

(21.5x16) * (1.1) * (2.18) = 824.9 Linear Feet

Order 825 Linear Feet for this example
Pro Tip: estimated deck square footage should include all finish surfaces needing deck boards; possibly including stairs, hand and/or top rails, fascias, benches, etc.
Use your estimated deck square footage to add the appropriate amount of recommended mounting hardware as indicated in the installation manual.

Thermally Modified Wood

Performance Driven, Eco-Conscious

Arbor Wood products are produced with responsibly sourced, domestic timber which undergoes a special thermal modification process using only heat and steam. This process changes the cellular structure of the wood making it a more stable, durable, and hydrophobic board resistant to rot and fungal decay.

The result is a healthy, long lasting, beautiful wood deck that is free from harsh chemicals or plastics.

100% natural. 100% biodegradable.


Ash - Raw

The thermal modification process enhances the wood's appearance, highlighting the deep, rich tones of each board. You may choose to apply a UV inhibitor which slows the patina process that occurs over time. Consistent application preserves the original character of the wood longer.

Natural Patina Over Time

Ash - Aged 6-12 Months

You have the choice to avoid additional coatings, paints, or stains altogether. In doing so, you will be making a more economical, eco-friendly, and healthy choice by avoiding chemicals entirely. There is also the benefit of reduced maintenance over the life of the product.


Ash - Fully Weathered

If you choose to leave the wood unfinished, Arbor Wood will move to a beautiful, natural gray over time, while still retaining its physical durability and stability. The color change is superficial and does not impact the longevity (or warranty) of the board product.

Decking, Siding, Trim & Millwork

Arbor Wood modified hardwoods are the eco-conscious alternative to exotic hardwoods, while softwood variants are the more natural and durable alternative to traditional chemically preserved lumber.

Arbor Wood produces a range of wood species, profiles, and finish options, including a beautiful take on traditional Japanese charred finish.

From window and door trim work, exterior landscape furnishings, even to interior accents and flooring, Arbor Wood is the most sustainable choice in dimensional lumber when looking for a high performance, natural product.

Low Maintenance - High Quality

Arbor Wood thermally modified woods can be used without additional finishes and are expected to last 25+ years without any signs of serious physical degradation, warping, or buckling.

Additional product information


Arbor Wood Decking Hidden Fastener System - Install Video

Grooved Arbor Wood deck boards, made to be used with a hidden fastener system require the ordering of the fastener hardware - DeckWise® Ipe Clip® ExtemeKD® - which can be ordered through Go Green Home Supply in 100 and 175 count kits.

In order to purchase the appropriate number of fastener clips, you need to know:
- estimated deck square footage
- joist spacing (ex. 16" on center)
- deck board width (ex. 5.5")
- Kit Coverage Area Conversion

Rough deck dimensions 21.5' x 16' = 344 sqft
16" joist spacing (common)
5.5" deck boards

For this example, the 100 count kit system covers 57 sqft for applications using 5.5" boards and 16" joist spacing.

344 sqft / 57 sqft = ~ 6.03 kits (depending on your overage calculations, 7 kits would be recommended in this example)

Care & Maintenance

Arbor Wood Co. thermally modified wood can be used without additional finishes and expected to last 25+ years without any signs of serious physical degradation, warping or buckling.

However, a UV coating can be used if color retention is an important factor (Arbor Wood recommends CUTEK Extreme). If no UV coating is used, the wood will patina out to a natural silver.

Arbor Wood recommends CUTEK Extreme should be applied/reapplied if desired when the wood is no longer beading or as frequently as necessary to retain the natural or altered color of the wood. Timing will differ depending on many variables including the age and porosity of the wood, species, situation, design, aspect, weathered exposure and adequacy of preparation.

When considering frequency of maintenance there are two factors to consider:

Protection: CUTEK Extreme diffuses deeply into wood to provide long-term, cumulative, inside-out protection. Even when the wood surface has grayed and weathered, CUTEK Extreme will remain permanently mobile in the wood, meaning protection is not compromised even if the outward appearance of the wood has changed. Each additional coat of CUTEK Extreme provides further additional protection against moisture.

Appearance: To maintain the natural color of freshly oiled wood for longer or alter the appearance of your wood, CUTEK Extreme with an added CUTEK Colortone should be applied. Over time and with exposure to sunlight and UV, the color will slowly fade to a silver patina, or ware/erode with use. Color durability and the rate at which this fading, or wearing/eroding occurs is dependent on many factors, such as age and porosity of the wood, species, situation, design, aspect, and degree of exposure to the weather. CUTEK Extreme with an added Colortone should be reapplied as frequently as necessary to maintain desired color vibrancy.

Go Green Home Supply does not currently sell CUTEK products.
