Cockpit Seats, Steel Barges and Hot Climates……………..
Composite Decks Panels are softer and more comfortable to sit so worth considering for a simple Cockpit Seat refurbishment on any Sailing Boat. Composite Decking should also be considered in hotter climates over Standard PVC Synthetic Teak as it remains cool underfoot. Since PVC Synthetic Teak can get extremely hot the obvious solution is to fit Decks with a different raw material. Our Floteak Composite Decks are made of a completely Natural Rubber/Cork material – a perfect Environmentally Friendly Solution. Such Composite Decking has a very low heat conductivity and is vastly superior to any Standard PVC Synthetic Teak for these particular uses. These properties make Composite Decks particularly attractive to Steel barges.

Using Templates – Panels are fabricated to the correct shape using a CNC machine. Templates can be supplied to us in traditional template for us to convert to a electronic vector file. Once the correct format has been produced the Composite Sheet material is ready for machining. Some boat builders may already have appropriate vector files for us to machine the decks directly.
Once the decks are machined they are caulked in a traditional way and supplied ready for fitting.
