Cork Composite Decks

Deck Panels

Cork Composite Deck Panels are softer, cooler and more comfortable form of Decking Material making them ideal for sailboat cockpit seats. We are able to fabricate small panels like cockpit seats in the workshops but the composite cork material does not lend itself to fabricating larger panels due to the transport difficulties.  In such circumstances it is necessary to fabricate the decks using strips  “in situ”  using the Deckfab DIY system. The materials are a natural and practical alternative to PVC Synthetic Teak and made of a completely Natural Rubber/Cork material from DeckfabAs a Natural Product they will benefit from seasonal oiling. The colour may be altered by using different colour stain/oils.

Preparation

The Deck may need a lot of preparation before any templating can be carried out. Often rotten teak or other tired deck surface coverings will need removing first. Teak removal services are also offered

Decking Strips

Decks are fabricated to the correct shape on board the boat. Once the decks are cut to shape  they are caulked in a traditional way and ready for fitting. As a natural product you can maintain appearance with a seasonal  oiling
