AliDeck Metal Balcony Decking is a quick-fit, versatile steel balcony flooring option for bolt-on, glide-on or cantilever balcony projects

AliDeck metal decking was designed to be simple and quick to install to steel balconies.

Able to be fixed directly to steelwork, low build-up heights are easily achievable and our range of large-spanning boards (up to 1.8 metres using our XL Board!) provides plenty of flexibility in steelwork design. Our range of aluminium joists are also able to be used to support the decking boards and help to reduce steel framework requirements, saving money in fabrication.

AliDeck provide an off-the-shelf fully-compliant steel balcony decking solution for all fabrication and construction

AliDeck have worked with dozens of steel fabricators to deliver bespoke, tailored balcony component solutions to their metal balcony packages. The flexibility that our range of products provides has led to AliDeck increasingly becoming the go-to partner for steel balcony manufacturing and we continue to refine and develop our offering to serve this crucial and growing sector of construction.

The AliDeck System of Aluminium Metal Balcony Decking Boards, Joists, Pedestals and Accessories

The AliDeck System of aluminium decking has proved popular with steel fabricators, developers and architects for use in balconies, terraces, and walkways, in new-build and retrofit projects. This is due in part to its excellent versatility, intelligent design, first class build quality, ease of installation, and value for money.

With an in-house Research & Development and Mechanical Engineering resource, AliDeck have been able to continually refine and evolve our offering to be at the forefront of the shift in the construction industry away from combustible materials and towards the safety, durability, and versatility of aluminium metal decking.

The AliDeck range is non-combustible, slip-resistant and durable

Safety is our primary concern and ensuring that our products are fit for purpose in this regard has formed the core of our research and development process.

Independently fire-safety tested to EN 13823, EN 13501 and EN ISO 1716, all elements of the AliDeck System achieve Euroclass Classifications of A2-s1, d0 and A2fl-s1, satisfying legal requirements and ensuring compliance for new build and retrofit projects. Additionally, AliDeck decking boards have undergone Slip Resistance testing and all AliDeck boards have been certified as “Low Risk” for slips in wet and dry conditions.

Alongside our Fire and Slip Resistance certification, our AliDeck Boards have undergone and passed Accelerated Wear testing. These tests included an “automatic foot” stepping on the board surface 100,000 times. The test results stated that the AliDeck boards passed and showed “no observable wear”, thereby earning Accelerated Wear certification.
