Aluminium decking is a popular choice for residential and commercial decking projects due to its wide range of qualities. For domestic applications, it provides a great lifespan and strength and for commercial applications, its non-combustible properties make it an excellent decking solution.
Aluminium decking boards are more modern than traditional decking materials and offer many innovative features that other decking options can't provide. For example, an inbuilt drainage system helps to channel water off the deck and protects the substructure below.
The top benefit of aluminium decking systems is that, unlike other combustible materials such as composite decking, it is fire rated and non-combustible. Since the introduction of new fire regulations in the aftermath of the Grenfell tower fire disaster, this is an important factor when installing decking on high rise buildings particularly. Aluminium balcony decking is now one of the few materials allowed to be installed in high rise projects.
