Aluminium balcony decking which features the same specification as Fire Resistant Balcony Decking, but with flat surface which is much more pleasant to walk upon when barefoot.

There are two boards to within the range, the Senior Flat Balcony Board and the Junior Flat Balcony Board. They both have the same features and benefits, yet the Senior board is 30 mm deep and the Junior board is 20 mm deep. The decking features a fire resistance rating of A2-s1, d0, meeting the government requirements for materials used in high-rise buildings.

Features and benefits:

  • Class A2-s1, d0 fire rated, therefore conforms to the UK fire regulations for materials used on the exterior of high-rise buildings.
  • Full drainage: The aluminium decking has cavities to allow the water to drain through, away from the decking, avoiding water laying on the surface.
  • Constructed from 30% recycled 6063 T6 grade aluminium for strength, longevity and minimal maintenance.
  • Quick installation times: The decking boards have been designed for ease of installation, resulting in 50% quicker install times, saving time and money on-site.
  • Supply only: The deck boards are available as supply only, giving the freedom to choose when to install the boards.
  • Easy fix to existing steelwork without unnecessary penetration.
  • 100% recyclable.
  • Can cover any size balcony: The Senior board is 120 x 30 mm and the Junior board is 120 x 20 mm, however they can be cut to size along the width and fitted together to cover balconies of any size.
  • Minimal maintenance required: Aluminium decking does not require treatments to keep it clean and maintained.
  • Will not warp over time: Unlike timber, aluminium does not expand or contract in the heat and wet weather and will not warp, make it last much longer than timber decking, without the need for regular treatments.
  • 90% of the deck board can be installed prior to the installation of the balcony if required, saving time.
  • No need to drill holes: Can be installed onto existing sub frame sections without having to drill additional holes.
  • Available in two colours.
  • 30-year warranty.
  • 60-year life expectancy.


Suitable for domestic installations such as high-rise flats, student accommodation and high-end apartments which feature balconies.
