AliDeck is 100% Committed to Our Environment

  • Our Recycled Aluminium Decking products will naturally be more environmentally friendly than other decking products like timber and composite.

AliDeck aluminium metal decking products will last a lot longer than timber or composite, reducing the need to be replaced as often. There is also no need to maintain the surface of AliDeck, unlike wooden decking for example. Wooden decking is often treated with environmentally harmful chemicals that are used as a preservative or as a method of applying an anti-slip coating.

Some people of course do not use any chemicals to preserve their wooden decking, but in those cases it is often seen that the decking surface and subframe is replaced more often due to natural weathering or rot, which will not be the case for the AliDeck System with its 60 year lifespan. Composite decking has become popular in the past but is not generally recyclable due to its composite make up of wood, plastic and additives.

Sustainability and environmental awareness is at the forefront of our aluminium decking manufacturing and supply

AliDeck works hard to provide the best service to our aluminium decking customers, from the first point of contact through to delivery and beyond. A key part of that is taking every action that we can to provide sustainable products and environmentally friendly production processes.

We are proud to have confirmed that we use 30% recycled aluminium to manufacture our aluminium decking products and to only source our aluminium extrusion from UK extruders, massively reducing the mileage that our products accrue in production as compared to competitors who source material or products from China.

We are also proud to have built effective processes to further reduce mileage by dispatching products to customers directly from our powder-coating facilities and to have built strong relationships with our transport providers to easily arrange multi-drop deliveries where possible.

When working with customers to develop an order, the AliDeck sales team always look to receive detailed architectural drawings of the project and to perform a full take-off.

When an order is suitably large (minimum 500KG), we are able to offer custom extrusion. This is where we provide our extruders with a precise, bespoke list of required decking board lengths, perfectly tailored to the project requirements. This is a zero-waste process and is always the best solution if feasible.

If custom extrusion is not an option, our take-off service helps to achieve optimum use of our stock length products and to minimise waste for boards and joists that are to be cut on site or at our factory. Not only does this help achieve greater environmental benefit but it also helps our customers lower the cost of their orders by purchasing less material, so it’s a win all round!

For unwanted waste, we will always first look to repurpose the material for use in our sample packs, sending out short lengths of boards and joists to prospective customers or using it to build small sample constructions to demonstrate features and product aspects. If we have a large supply of samples of a certain type, then we pass the material to scrap in order to feed it back into the production chain as recycled aluminium.

We’re always looking at ways to increase our environmental efficiency and are keen to work with our clients to minimise waste and maximise our green credentials.
