AliDeck launch new cost-effective aluminium decking board

Aluminium decking specialists AliDeck have announced the launch of a new addition to their range of non-combustible metal decking products; the AliDeck Lite Board.

Designed specifically to meet the needs of the retrofit and replacement market, AliDeck developed the low-profile Lite Board following conversations with public sector property managers desperate to source a technically and commercially viable solution for essential upgrade works.

Richard Izzard, AliDeck Managing Director, said “Housing Associations and Local Authorities are now faced with the Mammoth task of replacing all combustible elements of their property portfolio, including balconies. Following the Grenfell tragedy, balconies were defined as part of the external wall of buildings for the first time and so are included in the new, more stringent fire safety legislation.”

With limited budgets, public sector organisations in particular have a difficult task ahead of them in achieving compliance with the new fire regulations but the new AliDeck Lite Board comfortably meets the challenges of both cost and practical concerns for refurbishment and new build construction projects.

“We designed the Lite Board as an entry-level decking board,” continued Richard. “While we intend it to answer a lot of questions for the public sector in terms of cost, safety and ease of installation, these benefits naturally translate to usage in new-build developments and we’ve had a lot of interest from architects already. It’s undoubtedly a great product that will transform the market’s response to the new legislation.”

The Alideck Lite Board is fully compatible with AliDeck’s established range of joists and pedestals and for even greater flexibility is launched alongside a new low-profile support beam, the AliDeck Lite Joist. Used in combination, the Lite Range captures the essence of ‘value for money’, with clever design minimising the material required while maintaining the strength, durability and fire-safety aspects of AliDeck’s premium products. There are big savings to be made in installation time, too, with AliDeck utilising a quick-fit clip-in fixing method which makes short work of laying decking.

The AliDeck Lite Range is available to order immediately, so for more information and to discuss your retrofit or new build requirements please contact the AliDeck team on 01622 534 032 or email
