When it comes to your outdoor space, you want your decking solutions to last. Whether you are creating the outdoor living space of your dreams, manufacturing pull-behind trailers, or constructing a spectator bleacher stand or athletic arena, aluminum plank extrusion for decking is the premiere option.
Aluminum Decking Lasts Longer
There are several benefits of using aluminum for decking and bleacher needs. One of the primary benefits is that compared to its wood counterparts, aluminum decking lasts much longer. Aluminum deck planks repel moisture, mold, and mildew and withstand outdoor elements for a much more extended period. Because of this, aluminum does not mold or decay, so you won’t have to worry about mildew destroyed decking. Many types of aluminum decking feature self-draining channels to ensure the surface is free of moisture.
Aluminum Deck Planks Are Resistant to Pests
Often, wood decking deteriorates faster than necessary due to pests such as termites, other insects, and rodents. Aluminum deck planks do not attract those unwanted creatures, ensuring that your aluminum decking system is safe from unwanted pest damage. As an added benefit, because pests are not attracted to aluminum docking, you do not bring them towards your living or commercial building.
Aluminum Docking Planks Are Low Maintenance
When you choose aluminum deck planks, the maintenance is minimal; wash it down to remove any of nature’s debris. Other types of deck planks such as wood or manufactured materials often need treatments or stains to increase the decking system’s longevity. If your aluminum deck system is exposed to water, such as in marine environments, you also have the option of anodizing your aluminum deck planks for increased corrosion resistance.
Aluminum Decking has Built-in Traction
Wood deck planks and other compressed or artificial deck planks often become slippery when damp. Aluminum deck planks are a great option because they include a non-skid traction strip to ensure they are safe to walk on when wet. This trait makes aluminum plank extrusions great for marine environments, arenas, and stadiums, or around swimming pools.
Aluminum Decking Offers High Durability
You want your aluminum docking to not only last longer but maintain integrity through the wear and tear of use. Aluminum planks are known to hold up over time without bending, warping, twisting, cracking, or rusting. This characteristic of aluminum docking planks is essential for decking and dock areas that handle foot traffic, including jumping, dancing, spilled drinks, and more.
Aluminum Deck Planks are Sustainable
Aluminum is the most abundant mineral on earth after oxygen and silicon and is 100% recyclable. This environmental characteristic means that if you send your aluminum cans, foil, or extrusions off to be recycled, they can be melted down and created into something new an infinite number of times without losing properties. This fundamental trait is something that is not found in other decking materials. Wood deck planks require the destruction of trees, lots of wasted material, and decay over time. Additionally, once your wood decking needs to be replaced, the wood is virtually unusable and has no purpose.
