Dura Deck Inspire is the first ever 1.8m long A1 fire-rated porcelain deck plank balcony solution in the UK, especially suited to applications where the building height exceeds 11m.
The new product can be easily fitted to concrete balconies using Dura’s proven aluminium sub-frame system, but as a market first, Dura Composites has also developed a patent-pending* plank retainer system for installing Dura Deck® Inspire on open steel framed balconies. The retainer enables a floating decking system to be installed under self-weight, without the risk of planks falling should a breakage happen. The Dura Deck Inspire Plank Retainer also helps prevent wind uplift and facilitates the quick removal of the decking for maintenance or similar.
At 1.8m long and a width of 200mm, the products are the only porcelain products available that achieve a timber ‘plank’ appearance rather than the ‘slab’ effect normally associated with porcelain – a feat of engineering and in keeping with the innovation that this product brings to the market.
Long-lasting properties mean minimal upkeep
Porcelain is inherently strong, and our Dura Deck Inspire is no exception. Creating our most resistant product to date, Dura Deck Inspire requires little to no upkeep after the initial installation.
The porcelain decking boards boast anti-scratch properties coupled with almost zero water absorption, resulting in the boards being ultra-resistant to the elements, remaining in top condition throughout their lifetime without the need for consistent maintenance.
Porcelain Decking is Contemporary, Elegant and Strong
Dura Deck Inspire also holds excellent anti-slip performance in all conditions, making it a safe solution for areas that receive large amounts of footfall, such as commercial pedestrian walkways, and areas prone to wetter conditions, such as spas, pool-sides and a wealth of other outdoor applications.
You can be confident that all foot traffic is crossing safely, whilst guaranteeing an attractive deck all year round.
Porcelain Decking Supports Sustainability
Dura Deck Inspire planks are produced with 61% of pre-consumer recycled materials. All the raw materials used in the production come from a radius of 500 miles of the manufacturing plant and the products’ paper packaging materials are both made from recycled paper and are further recyclable.
