We're often asked how to apply decking oil and decking stain products. Although there are a number of applicators and brushes on the market, decking applicator pads are certainly a firm favourite as they work well on both smooth and grooved decking.
Woodleys Decking Applicator is compatible with a wide range of extendable handles due to its changeable fitting and tapered collar. We recommend the Woodleys Lightweight Extension Pole as our tried and tested favourite.
Inside the green tapered sleeve that attaches to the handle is a black plastic insert for accepting handles that have a screw type end. This is easily removed to accept poles of varying widths (maximum pole width 2.5cm or 1 inch).
Traditional wooden broom handle can be secured to the decking applicator with two screws through the guide holes on the applicator sleeve.
The Woodleys Decking Applicator also has a handy angle setting feature, which enables the angle of the applicator to be set to suit your requirements.
The included applicator pad measures approx 178mm x 80mm and can be easily removed for cleaning / replacement. Replacement Woodleys Decking Applicator Pads are available to buy separately.
The Woodleys Decking Applicator can be cleaned but the method is dependent on the type of product used. Most decking products are either water-based or solvent-based.
Water-based decking products can be cleaned off immediately after use using warm soapy water, then rinsed thoroughly. Solvent-based decking products can be cleaned off immediately after use with white spirit, taking care to ensure that none of the decking oil, white spirit or byproduct is released into drains or watercourses.
