Aluminium Decking for Balconies


Easy to install, A2fl-s1 fire-resistant aluminium decking system for all applications

Available in two ranges to meet the needs of all project specifications, Dura Deck Aluminium gives developers and contractors the ultimate peace of mind for new and replacement balcony decking and addresses a general need for improved fire safety on balconies, terraces and public buildings and for applications over 11 metres in height or that require an A2 fire rating. It also addresses a dire need for improved fire safety on balconies and terraces, especially those in public buildings.

Our boards feature an innovative, patent-pending tongue-and-grove design, which ensures that they can be fitted quickly and easily, without the need for cutting. Each aluminium board also has a double skin with an eye-catching grooved surface and uniform underside to prevent water dripping below the deck. The in-built grooves make the decking surface slip resistant, improving overall safety and further cementing Dura Deck Aluminium as an ideal choice for high rise balconies and building applications.

With a 150mm visible face, the fireproof decking board boasts an integrated gutter system, channelling water away from your structure to create a low maintenance deck with a useable, dry space below. Simultaneously, this creates an attractive integrated soffit detail. The grooved design offers a traditional plank-look surface that features the latest technology and can be installed rapidly – with no clips being required.

Dura Deck Aluminium comes with a 25-year manufacturer warranty, subject to a correct and proper maintenance regime.

8 Reasons to Choose Fireproof Aluminium Decking


A2 Fire Rating for Peace of Mind

Strong and tough, Dura Deck Aluminium is made from high grade T6 aluminium and is ideal for any application that requires an A2 Fire Rating (A2fl-s1) in accordance with BS EN13501, perfect for applications over 11-metres, such as residential and mixed-use developments, schools, universities, hospitals & libraries.


Cooler Under Foot

Our aluminium decking has high thermal conductivity providing a cooler deck surface than most wood or composite surfaces. The lightweight 27mm and 18mm profiles of the two products make them ideal for new builds as well as refurbishments where the fire ratings of existing 28mm timber decking are insufficient.


Ultimate Safety in Design

The beautiful plank-look surface features the latest technology and can be installed rapidly. The boards are available in 3 modern colours and can span up to 1m (Dura Deck Aluminium Heavy Duty) or 600mm (Dura Deck Aluminium Standard Duty. Spans are based on stringent 2019 2kN load criteria according to BS 6399-1:1996).

Built-In A2 Fire Rated Soffit

Soffits are an important visual aspect of a building’s design, requiring materials such as metal or PVC sheets. With a 150mm visible face, the deck board offers an integrated drainage system, channelling water away from your structure to create a beautiful, low maintenance deck and a usable, dry space below, with attractive integrated soffit detail.


Guaranteed Long Term Performance

Our aluminium decking has undergone stringent testing to BS 6399-1:1996 to guarantee its effectiveness.


Proven Best-in-Class Slip Resistance

Engineered with a unique paint formula for unrivalled low slip potential, achieving 63 in the dry and 54 in the wet taking the 4S Slider Slip-Resistance Test.


Integral Water Management

Its unique design enables Dura Deck Aluminium Decking to channel water runoff to the building’s rainwater collection system.


Versatility in Design

Both of our ranges meet the needs of all project specifications including off-site manufacturing techniques and ‘slide-on’ cassette balconies, improving the speed and safety of the installation process.

Due to its lightweight design and hard-wearing composition, Dura Deck Aluminium is perfect for a range of applications. Specifically, its outstanding fire-resistance and compliance with EU and UK government recommendations mean that it’s great for terraces and balconies on buildings over 18 metres in height.

Even if fire safety is not a consideration, they offer a sleek, contemporary finish to any project. Furthermore, with a 60 year service life and low maintenance requirements, Dura Deck Aluminium is perfect for public spaces.
