Tecdeks – Fabrication
Methods and Materials
PVC Synthetic Teak Panels are decking panels made from co-extruded PVC material developed and improved over the last 15 years in UK. From experience we know the strongest decks are made using 100% Virgin PVC without any acrylic filler which reduces material strength. Any addition of recycled content tends to dull the appearance with time. Our PVC panels all have a dovetail underside which creates a larger surface area and mechanical locking bond for better adhesion to the deck surface. Choosing our panels will ensure that the look of your deck will remain long lasting and well bonded. Choosing a Tecdeks fitter will ensure your deck is both fabricated and fitted using the very best materials on the market. Composite Cork Panels are a 100% natural product composed of a mixture of Cork Granules and Rubber which has been compressed into 1 metre wide sheets. The Sheets are machined with caulking grooves ready for caulking for use in the Marine and Leisure Industry. It is environmentally friendly and a sustainable alternative to PVC synthetic teak. EVA Foam Panels are made from UV protected non-absorbent foam, the surface usually has a textured micro-dot finish or brushed faux teak for added non-slip capabilities. Our fitters supply us deck patterns from paper templates which are converted at our premises into a cad designs ready for routering on a cnc machine by the foam deck manufacturers.

Looks and Feels like Teak.
The Decks are sanded and the appearance and grip will be marginally effected should the deck be sanded smooth or coarse. All PVC Synthetic Teak gets hot in direct sunlight but choosing a light colour does provide a significant benefit in keeping the deck cooler. We choose not to use additives in our decking material which significantly reduce the material durability and strength.
All the above materials can be fixed to almost any surface including GRP, Steel and Timber and all materials are impressively Non-Slip, even when wet. The material appearance of each of the above varies.
Deck Panels are usually supplied from Professionally taken Templates to ensure that you receive a Bespoke Product for your Boat.
