Decking & Aluminium Joists On Balconies

News & Case Studies

Installation of Composite Decking & Aluminium Joists

Our client wanted a low maintenance but high quality finish for the balconies on a build of high end flats and penthouses.

Castlewood composite decking was chosen as it provides good slip resistance and a very luxurious finish. Our composite decking is very low maintenance due to the unique polymer cap that is applied to the decking boards during production. This particular deck board is supplied with a 25 year limited warranty for domestic applications and a 10 year limited warranty for commercial applications. Terms and conditions apply.

Our aluminuium substructure system was chosen as it is quick and easy to install and will never rot like traditional timber joists. The balconies also had very low thresholds in some areas that could not have been overcome with traditional timber joists.

The aluminium substructure was assembled in frames with joists running at 400mm apart to provide adequate support for the composite boards. Additional joists were also installed to support the ends of each decking board where two ends meet.

Each aluminum frame was then laid on our DD adjustable pedestals to make them completely level. Decking boards were then secured to the aluminum with our unique fasteners that work with our boards and aluminum profiles.

If you have a project that may require this system please get in touch with your dimensions and we will happily provide a quotation for everything required.
