Safe and Cost Effective
Dura Deck Aluminium 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.
The decking boards feature a ribbed surface to aid rainwater dispersal. Water is guided to a gutter with a floor area of over 6m2 through the clever patented design of our decking board profiles (Patent No. GB 2 615 096). When Dura Deck® Aluminium decking is combined with aluminium Dura Bearers and Dura Pedestals, a fully Class A2 fire-rated flooring system can be achieved. The patent-pending, innovative tongue-and-groove design of Dura Deck Aluminium Positive-Drain features a double skin with an attractive grooved surface and a uniform underside to prevent water egress below the deck. With a 150mm visible face, Dura Deck Aluminium Positive-Drain offers an integrated drainage 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 innovative Dura Deck Aluminium Free-Drain 18mm 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.
Cool Underfoot & Anti-Slip
A lightweight 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.
Suited to Off-Site Manufacturing Techniques
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.
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.
