Leading external flooring system specialist, Alfresco Floors, is pleased to introduce ZERODECK, its new range of A1-rated deckboards, adding to their range of non-combustible sub-frame and surface options.
Timber decking alternatives have, until now, been somewhat limited, offering an aesthetic that doesn’t always fit the style of the project.
Available in two natural wood-grain options (California and Brazil), with ZERODECK your clients now have a quality flooring solution evoking the very best of natural timbers. With fully saturated colours that remain stable regardless of climate, ZERODECK even allows exposed end cuts if the design calls for them.
Importantly, ZERODECK has been tested to BS EN 13501-1:2020 and has been certified as EuroClass A1-rated. This means it meets the requirements for non-combustible materials as defined by the latest fire safety legislation.
With a variety of installation methods available, specifiers and architects can also choose from different solutions to suit their projects.
ZERODECK can be surface mounted to a joist if a more traditional timber finish is required, however the deckboards are pre-grooved for use with clips which will satisfy those looking for a clean finish and hidden fixings.
Available in 150 x 2440 x 25mm boards, ZERODECK is a revolutionary A1-rated timber alternative and a must-have for specifiers looking for maximum fire-safety whilst delivering a premium finish.
Class A Requirements
Current Building Regulations require that specified attachments on residential buildings over 18 metres must be constructed of Class A rated materials; however many architects, specifiers, and contractors are increasingly specifying non-combustible materials on projects regardless of building height as best practice.
The qualities of ZERODECK extend above and beyond their A1 rating and will be a finish of choice regardless of the fire-rating requirements of your external flooring project.
Alfresco Floors are an established specialist in the delivery and installation of pedestal and rail-based external Class A fire-rated flooring systems.
With a comprehensive range of Class A-rated sub frame systems, A-PED, REIF DuraLink and AR-System, Alfresco also supply an extensive variety of flooring options which are also Class A-rated. These include aluminium decking, porcelain tiles, concrete and natural stone pavers.
The team at Alfresco Floors have unrivalled experience in exterior flooring, becoming familiar with all manner of materials, all sorts of technical challenges, and just about every type of ‘raised floor’ installation system.
