With a 150mm visible face, the decking board boasts an integrated gutter system, channelling water away from your structure to create a beautiful, low maintenance deck and a usable, dry space below, whilst simultaneously creating an attractive integrated soffit detail.

The plank-look surface features the latest technology and can be installed rapidly as no clips are required. The boards span up to 1m (based on stringent 2019 2kN load criteria according to BS 6399-1:1996).

The lightweight 27mm profile means it is ideal for new builds as well as refurbishments where the fire ratings of existing 28mm timber decking are insufficient. The unique surface keeps cool in hot weather and has low slip potential in all directions.
