Alfresco Floors have installed their Grad System at London’s Royal Opera House to provide a new treated softwood surface.
The decking area of the Opera House is around 600m² and was a hardwood deck for the last 25 years.
Alfresco Floors recommended retaining the existing joint structure using their Grad ‘invisible fixings’ deck system to provide a softwood surface.
The extremely low build up height of the Grad system also meant that Alfresco Floors could install all the rails, clips and boards onto these existing joists without much change to the original floor height.
It uses a patented clip fixing which locks into specially milled grooves along the underside of each board, so it leaves no fixings on show either on the surface or even in the gaps between each board.
There are currently four treated softwoods which are manufactured to fit Grad – Thermo-Pine, Thermo-Ash, Accoya and Kebony.
