Dek-King Marine Flooring
Dek-King 2G premium synthetic teak boat decking is 30% cooler and 32% lighter in weight than its traditional synthetic counterpart.
Dek-King® synthetic teak marine decking is the ultimate alternative to the traditional teak decking that we all know and love. Over 40 years of British manufacturing and design experience have combined to deliver this superb marine decking solution which retains the look and feel of a real teak boat deck whilst providing excellent anti-slip performance and low maintenance requirements. Our synthetic teak boat decks are designed, fabricated and installed by professional teams who combine modern construction techniques with traditional hand crafted finishing so that they virtually indistinguishable in look and feel to real teak wood decks and are now available as standard with a superior grain and improved performance.
Dek-King® 2G is a premium synthetic decking which is 30% cooler underfoot and over 32% lighter in weight than its traditional synthetic counterpart. With our vision of continuous improvement, Dek-King® 2G now has a superior lifelike grained effect, is available in 9 colour combinations and made from a material with increased durability. Manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, the new material is also more environmentally friendly as it contains less PVC, uses a phthalate free plasticiser and is REACH compliant whilst remaining 100% recyclable. With Dek-King® 2G, the future is now providing a much enhanced deck at no additional price.
2G – THE FACTS
We only use UV stabilized outdoor grade PVC which means that you will find that it is easier to look after than wood and that it doesn’t lose its good looks to sunlight or harsh conditions of the marine environment.
Manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, our new material is also more environmentally friendly as it contains less PVC, uses a phthalate-free plasticiser, and is REACH compliant whilst remaining 100% recyclable.
With our vision for continuous product improvement we are proud to say that Dek-King 2G offers you the following benefits:
- Superior lifelike graining: carefully selected pigments to deliver an increased depth of graining.
- 9 stock colour combinations: offering a greater range of stock colours to suit your requirements.
- Improved durability: we have modified our formula to offer you the best possible performing product
Dek-King 2G synthetic teak has been designed to replicate the graining found on natural timber, therefore the graining effect we provide will differ between planks. This non-uniformity is intentional and an inherent feature of the product.
But don’t just take our word for it, see the quality for yourself!
Specific Heat per volume unit*
|1G Material (Standard Synthetic Teak)||1.825 MJ/m3K||0.194 W/mK|
|2G Material||1.245 MJ/m3K||0.143 W/mK|
The 2G sample tested has a lower thermal conductivity, 26.3% less than the 1G sample. This is as expected when comparing the densities of each product, with the lower density 2G resulting in a lower thermal conductivity. Similarly, the 2G sample gave a 31.8% reduction in Specific Heat per volume.
* Definition of Specific Heat Capacity per volume unit: The heat required to raise the temperature of the volume unit of a material by one degree. The higher the value, the easier it is to transport heat through the material. For any given “material”, the heat capacity of a body is directly proportional to the amount of “material” it contains (measured in terms of mass volume). Doubling the amount of “material” in a body doubles its heat capacity.
** Definition of Thermal Conductivity: The rate at which heat passes through a specified material, expressed as the amount of heat that flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance. Heat transfer occurs at a higher rate across materials of high thermal conductivity than across materials of low thermal conductivity.
Be it with the bright finish of a freshly laid teak deck, one that has been in use for a couple of seasons or to look like a deck that has been well weathered from the elements, we are able to supply the product to match your needs. Dek-King® is now available in a range of stock or custom colours* to suit your own design requirements.
|Black & Grey caulking||Charcoal & Black Caulking||Maple & Black Caulking|
|Teak & Cream Caulking||Black Cherry & Black Caulking||Sun Bleached & Black Caulking|
|Teak & Black Caulking||Weathered & Black Caulking||Silver & Black Caulking|
We are able to manufacture our PVC boat deck profiles in custom colours* to meet your own specifications. This enables our trade customers to apply unique finishes to their craft in keeping with design ideals.
Dek-King Weld is the ultimate alternative to teak decking and is supplied as fully welded and waterproof panels to boat builders, boat yards or boat owners.
Panels are fabricated from templates taken directly from your boat to ensure that you receive a bespoke product specifically tailored to your individual needs.
Our distributors will work with you to ensure that your deck is created to your exact specifications. Whether following traditional teak wood boat deck design elements or perhaps instead following a more simplified, modern design your fitter will use their expertise to deliver a deck that surpasses your expectations.
The use of synthetic teak delivers greater flexibility in providing an attractive, non-slip deck covering to all manner of craft.
CHOICE OF INSTALLATION METHOD
Dek-King Weld can be supplied in the following ways:
- Full fit - our highly experienced fitters will consult with you over your deck design requirements before taking templates and then fabricating the required panels. They will arrange a suitable installation time to minimise the amount of time you are off the water. They can even handle the removal of your old deck and prepare the surface prior to the installation of your new one.
- Professional templating service and panel fabrication - leaving you to fit the mats yourself.
- Mats fabricated to your own templates – installation to be handled yourself.
Supplying pre-fabricated panels to templates saves both time and money whilst still providing a professional product ready for installation. The individual panels are supplied as per template and simply need adhering to your deck following preparation using the supplied adhesive.
Alternatively one of our fitters will do everything that you require from surface preparation to templating to fitting on site.
