AliDeck launch new cost-effective aluminium decking board for the retrofit and replacement market

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.

Richard Izzard, AliDeck Managing Director, said “Housing associations and local authorities are faced with the mammoth task of replacing all combustible elements of their property portfolio, including on 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 is a cost-effective solution for new-build projects, too.

“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 a great product and will change the market.”

Fully compatible with their existing range of joists and pedestals, the AliDeck Lite Board is launched alongside a new low-profile support beam, the AliDeck Lite Joist, to deliver maximum value for money.

The AliDeck Lite Range is available to order immediately, so for more information and to discuss your retrofit requirements please contact the AliDeck team on 01622 235 672 or email
