Dura Deck Aluminium Standard Duty (SD) is an 18mm decking profile with an A2 fire rating and that meets the latest fire safety requirements for balconies and terraces. Spanning up to 600mm between centres on a 2kN point load, the decking boards feature a unique design which is also suited for use with ‘slide-on’ cassette balconies, minimising the need for on-site finishing.

Dura Deck Aluminium SD uses a clever clip fixing system which can be deployed to create both a free draining or visually closed system, depending on your project requirements. The advanced protective powder coating of the boards has an anti-glare matt finish and comes in three colours as standard.

  • Innovative EU-registered, patent-pending design allows for pre-installation onto slide-on, cantilevered balconies for maximum installation efficiency
  • Extensively tested surface finish provides unrivalled anti-slip and scratch resistance in both wet and dry conditions
  • Can be installed with full length fixing clip, or with 50mm clip for a free-draining deck
  • Cool touch surface (Warmth is dissipated evenly across the board so hot spots are avoided)
  • 25-year product warranty and 60 year design life

Key Benefits

Safe and Cost Effective

Dura Deck Aluminium SD has been developed in conjunction with leading developers, contractors and balcony manufacturers. It provides a safe and cost-effective decking solution for balconies and high-rise terraces, and for any project that requires an A2 fire rating.

Suited to Off-Site Manufacturing Techniques

Spanning up to 600mm between supports on a 2kN distributed load, the decking boards feature a grooved surface to aid rainwater dispersal and are particularly suited for use with ‘slide-on‘ cassette balconies. The majority of the decking boards can be installed during off-site manufacture, with the remaining boards sliding in as the balcony is lifted into place, improving the speed, quality and safety of the decking installation process, and reducing labour costs on-site.

Free Draining

The innovative Dura Deck Aluminium SD integrates seamlessly with our aluminium joist and pedestal system to meet even the lowest of build-up heights, and our proprietary fixing clip can be used to create a free draining balcony installation.

Fire Tested to the Correct Methodology

Achieving an A2fl-s1 Fire Rating, Dura Deck Aluminium’s fire testing has been conducted in conjunction with the correct flooring test and installation method on a horizontal plane, for absolute peace of mind.

Advanced Structural Performance

The lightweight nature of Dura Deck Aluminium reduces the structural load on buildings. The products have undergone stringent testing to guarantee their effectiveness and performance under both point load and crowd loading in accordance with relevant building codes. Our published data meets the requirements of the most recent 2.0kN point load @ 0.5% deflection (L/200) BS 6399-1:1996) standard, rather than the now obsolete 4kn criteria referenced by many others.


The Dura Deck Aluminium range has a powder coated finish and comes with a 25 year warranty. Please refer to our supporting Technical Manual for full warranty conditions. You can activate your warranty within 30 day.

Colours & Trims

Our Aluminium Decking Products are available in 3 attractive, contemporary colours that look great in any commercial or residential environment.

Anthracite – RAL 7043

Cedar – RAL 1019

Mist – RAL 7001

Dura Deck Aluminium Standard Duty (SD) has a range of intelligently designed trims and accessories so you can be sure of a simple and efficient way to start, install and finish your aluminium decking balcony or terrace design.

Because our Standard Full Length Main Clip runs the length of the decking board, it provides directional drainage. If your balcony design better suits a free draining solution, our 50mm Main Clips can be used in place of a Standard Full Length Main Clip. The End Closure trim can be used for terminating board ends with a neat finish. If your decking installation scenario requires a board to be trimmed down in length to complete your installation, a Cut Down Clip can be used to support the trimmed edge, giving a professional finish.
