PVC Synthetic Teak Decking Panels using Deckfab
A Marine Panel Fabricator
Synthetic Teak Decking requires a lot of skill from a trained professional fabricator. His priority is to ensure that any Deck Panels are built to the customers requirements to the highest standards. The fabricator will receive a template of the customers order from the local fitter, along with the customers colour choice. It is the fabricators responsibility to check any Panels are fabricated exactly as per the template.
Deckfab Synthetic Teak Comparisons and Key Features
The best matrerial like Deckfab material is 100% Virgin PVC without any additives or packing material and is extruded in the UK. Additives reduce the decks strength and durability so we do not use them. The reverse has dovetails to increase the surface area and a physical locking system for maximum adhesion to the deck. Our decking system is unique to Beautiful Marine Floors and produces the strongest and the most durable decks. It is backwelded using heat and double welded at the margins ie.solvent and heat weld.
The linishing is medium grit at the factory but we sand the deck on the final finish so the customer can have a choice of texture prior to the panel being released to the fitter. The texture tends to smooth over time and general use.
There are a range of colours out there with 98% of boats opting for Traditional, Weathered or Aged teak so we concentrated on perfecting the most realistic colours using names that people understand. We do not offer the rest because we are in the business of enhancing boats and there is the danger that strange colour combinations may be detrimental to the boats resale value. We just concentrate on giving the customer what he wants which is the most durable and realistic synthetic teak decks on the market.

Fitting PVC Synthetic Teak Panels
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 panels are made from templates taken directly from your boat to ensure that you receive a bespoke product specifically tailored to your boat. We have many methods of templating from traditional to hi- tech methods.
