Why Choose AliDeck?

AliDeck-Non-Combustible-Aluminium-Metal-Decking-Woolwich-Penthouse-Apartment-Balconies

AliDeck’s aluminium metal decking solutions enable you to install non-combustible, fire-resistant decking platforms in record time. Our diverse product range ensures we have a solution for every requirement, moving you away from traditional timber or composite decking, over to aluminium decking with life expectancies of over 50 years.

Traditional decking solutions typically require a joist at 400mm centres but one of the many benefits of the AliDeck system, when combined with the AliDeck Joists, is that you will only require a joist at a distance of up to 2 metres (depending on the required loadings) when using our AliDeck XL Board, resulting in a super-fast installation with minimal fuss.

  • Our unique aluminium decking system saves you at least 50% on the installation times and that’s before you start on the easy to install decking boards.

AliDeck’s Standard Colour Range

One of the most important services we provide to our potential customers is the help we give them in understanding all aspects of our products.

There’s nothing better for understanding, though, than hands on experience, and we’re delighted to provide that with our sample packs.

The AliDeck Standard Colour range was recently expanded to 10 popular colours. We produced a really handy colour swatch to help our customers make the right choice but have now also produced sample boxes containing decking samples of our whole colour range. These sample packs deliver the most realistic representation of the AliDeck colour range possible.

Safety Testing & Certification

Slip Resistance:

AliDeck recognises that safety extends beyond simply achieving compliance with fire legislation and that all aspects of safe use of our products must be demonstrated. Accordingly, we have submitted all AliDeck decking boards to slip resistance testing.

Independently tested to BS7976 Part 2, the AliDeck System was subjected to Calibrated Certificated Portable Pendulum Instrument tests in three different directions in wet and dry conditions. All AliDeck boards were found to pose a “Low Risk” for slips in all conditions, the highest rating achievable.

Read About Our Slip Resistance

Wear Resistance:

AliDeck is passionate about producing products that are not only safe but are able to sustain decades of reliable use. As such, we have submitted all AliDeck decking boards to accelerated wear testing.

Independently tested to SATRA TM391:2016, the AliDeck System was subjected to Biomechanical Abrasion of Flooring. Materials testing. With 100,000 foofalls simulated by a Standard Shoe machine apparatus and with observations made at every 25,000 footfalls, no wear of the AliDeck board surface was recorded at all and only “Very Slight” sole marking was observed after 100,000 footfalls. Additionally, AliDeck boards were also submitted to the “Chair Leg” Wear Test, recording no effect other than “Very Slight” transfer of brass with 70KG and 100KG mass applied.

Fire Resistance:

AliDeck is dedicated to producing non-combustible, fire-resistant aluminium decking systems to ensure safety and full compliance with legislation. Independently tested to EN 13823, EN 13501 and EN ISO 1716, the AliDeck System achieves Fire Ratings of A2-s1, d0 and A2fl-s1, satisfying all fire-safety legislation and ensuring compliance for new build and renewal projects.

Following the Grenfell tragedy, there is a far greater scrutiny on fire safety in high-rise buildings. It is absolutely essential that all materials used in the external envelope are non-combustible. AliDeck’s fire resistance certification provides our customers with the peace-of-mind that they are investing in a compliant non-combustible solution.
