“Flexiteek” Boat DeckingPrint
“Flexiteek” is a synthetic teak panel made of composite materials and is 100% recyclable. Its non-slip quality is superb and on first viewing or touching you will think it is nothing other than real teak. Flexiteek decking will not fade, dry out, split or crack and requires minimal maintenance.
A greener and cheaper alternative to teak decking was originally unveiled at the Southhampton Boat Show by Golden Arrow Marine. Flexiteek is a strip plank made out of recycled plastic, but has a similar look to the real thing. The plastic used is fire-resistant to Class 0 standards, has a solid colour through its depth and can be sanded just like a teak deck. It bends readily over bumps and hollows, and can be curved to follow deck contours by being heated with the new shape remaining after cooling. The product’s laid weight is less than an equivalent expanse of teak. In a quick test, it was found that Flexiteek survived a dousing in hydraulic oil that would have ruined a wooden teak deck. It also took a sanding with no trouble, the new surface keeping its grainy appearance.
With Flexiteek products now having been on the market for 12+ years we know that Flexiteek lasts long-term ultra violet exposure and extreme heat / cold conditions.
