Synthetic Boat Decking

Synthetic Boat Decking

Today's boats utilise many advanced modern materials. Carbon fibre and GRP provide structural strength, Kevlar in our ropes and sails give us higher breaking strains and greater product life while stainless steel has made rust a thing of the past. Now it's the turn of decking to be treated to a modern, high-tech upgrade.

Dek-King Synthetic Boat Decking is a superb alternative to wooden decking that can be applied to almost any surface including GRP, steel and timber. Its flexible composite structure makes it impressively non-slip and this feature continues even when the deck is running in salt water.

Ideal for either DIY or boat builders, Dek-King is supplied in easy to handle welded sheets. A craft knife and adhesive spreader are the only other tools required for the installation of our Synthetic Boat Decking.

Its unique dovetailed under structure creates both an adhesive bond and equally importantly a mechanical bond once the glue has cured. This “locking” of the adhesive insures that the Dek-King  remains firmly fixed down for life, yet still allows the boat to flex naturally.

DEK-KING, while almost indistinguishable from its traditional timber forerunner, features the kind of benefits that sophisticated scientific and production technology can provide. The colour fast pigmenting and in-built 'graining' are totally convincing. Each profile incorporates a 'caulking edge and the end result will look simply awesome.

The average handyman will be fully able to install completed panels. For those wishing to be more involved a simple craft knife is all that is required to cut your own shapes from pre- welded sheets

Application: Lay the Dek-King  panel in place. Spread the adhesive (just like tiling) with a notched spreader. Lay the pre-cut joined decking back down, firming down as you go.

Durability: Unlike wood, Dek-king requires no further oiling, varnishing, sanding or scraping. Cleaning is simple and can be achieved using adhesive removal wipes.

Life: Dek-King is fully UV stabilised and since it is coloured throughout its thickness will retain its classic appearance for many, many years.
