Is teak still teak?
Wood is temporary. More than ever
Off course teak is a wonderful material. No question. However, today’s plantation timber with few but highly visible woodgrain only has a natural durability of 3 (as per DIN-EN 350-2) which, at worst, equates to the quality of a European larch.
By comparison, pine has a quality of 3-4 as is only slightly worse.
In the southern latitudes teak, like any other timber, suffers from high ultraviolet light stress. Even standing woodgrain rings won’t act as protection against the destructive force of the sun. Once the deck has thinned and the plugs reveal the screws, the time has come to contemplate a refit.
The decking is no longer watertight and water can penetrate the deck’s sandwich construction. If you are toying with the idea of replacing your wooden deck, contact us. We will gladly inform you about the advantages of a modern and more reasonable Flexiteek-deck.
The alternative to wooden decking
Synthetic teak decking and the timber stays in the rainforest
A Flexiteek decking is low-maintenance, looks strikingly similar to a deckboard and is around 40% lighter.
Due to the fusing of the individual synthetic planks a large, homogeneous and water tight surface is created which is both hard-wearing and skid-proof. The pvc based material is easy to clean, highly weather-resistant and has been decked used on over 200.000 sqm of decking since the year 2000.
In addition, Flexiteek International AB grants a 5 year guarantee on all decking material.
