At 28mm thick it is certainly not 'Premium'. 35mm at a minimum if you want it to last.

I built my deck over 14 years ago and used 28mm, still as good today as when it went down, look after it that is all.
Also buy from your local indy timber yard, much cheaper.

Why what happens with only an inch thick?
I bought some on the last deal a month or so ago, you need to pick the best boards out of the pile as some are like bananas
Use class 3 got me worrying about it because anything which is correctly CCA pressure treated is UC4 there are some companies offering a 10 year warranty on UC 3 but a 30 year warranty on UC4 !

"Maintenance: Always keep clean and recoat all sides with a deck seal, deck oil or deck stain to help prevent splitting, warping and rot"

"The essential part to check is when a deck designed for an above ground application, and so treated to Use Class 3, has posts and joists that may be in ground contact. Best practice for decking design and installation states that ‘Where posts and joists will be in contact with the ground only Class 4 treatment is fit for purpose – nothing else will do.’ In ground contact would also apply to joists or bearers that are used for roof decks or balconies where the bearer is permanently supported."

The point is that Class 4 CCA costs pennies to apply but leaves the timber wet and therefore heavier and covered in nasty chemicals which DIY sheds probably don't want to handle.

This appears to be the lightest preservative they could get away with - UC3.1 above ground coated, where both sides of the timber have to be coated in order to meet the preservative class. Buying and applying all that coating will cost far more than you will ever save on this deal.

In general I find most of Wickes Brand stuff is carp
Just bought some of these and they were really good quality. A few knots in a couple & I’ve treated them but way better than the cheaper ones

38273055-lEe7E.jpgBought this when it cheap a month ago and roped the father in law to help me do our decking. Love it!
Pick your own boards, not trouble with them 🏻 28mm boards are perfectly fine
Anyone know if this would be okay to use for borders in an allotment? Just to delineate growing areas.
Got these boards last year and are awesome! Get some good decking oil and you're good to go (personal favourite is Liberon Decking Oil)

on a side note if you are a bit of an expert in good decking oil, would you know what oil is best to apply on a bench (pine or similar wood) ?

Hey bud no expert here just a diyer but Defo go for an oil over a stain. The stain coats the top while the oil seeps into the wood itself restoring it and making it healthier over years. For oiling a bench you most certainly can use decking oil, it acts as the same thing just with decking before it. The go to stuff I use is Liberon or ronseal ultimate. Different woods have different properties and the best for each one is debatable. For pine, raw linseed oil is best choice or tung oil. You could also use varnishes or waxes instead of oil. Sorry if I've overloaded with info.
